if you look at jan options they are not pricing any real move from here,particulary anythin over the 56 calls,with the stock up a lot moves were very small and in a cpl of cases near flat,next week should see profit taking if the options are right
62 would be a huge move today. We will hit 62, just not on this Monday. It will happen and relatively soon too probably within the next two weeks.
Well if you're going to acquire the licensed stores it has to happen in SOME quarter. Would you have been happier if it was done next quarter? the quarter after that? It was a mixed but generally positive quarter - like they are most of the time. Margins slipped, same store sales were up an incredible 7% (for a 20000 store chain!). You want deception - go look at the Tesla non-GAAP numbers.
It makes today's SBUX move seem so paltry... Had the sense enough to know and play NFLX and a dope to play AAPL... but didn't think to throw a few CALL dollars at this freight train... OH WELL!
In this case newstolose is hollering "fire" where there isn't one. He may be neither long nor short, he's obviously clueless, or simply hates the idea of people making money.
[Actually I'm not (short). But I am honest and hate deception.]
So you're not short, and you're obviously not long. So do you spend your day just roaming from board to board pointing out how unfair, corrupt and deceptive people are? If rooting out deception is your mission in life, you might want to focus on Iran and China. Or maybe boycott a magic store.
bux started selling blonde a while back, and word got out that they finally had a drinkable coffee. It took bux a couple decades to get it, but they finally did. Just like McD's, took them decades to figure out people ate breakfast. These brainiac ceo's are worth every million.
Not all of the earnings from the acquisition is accreted. Plus within the profits they are calculating, some of that was anticipated through their licensing fees. So all though some of the earnings may have helped them, the amount is negligible. The key figure as with any retail type stock is the comp sales and those are impressive!
Slipped for the Asia pacific region only, due to acquiring the licensed Japan stores. Yoy margin improvement everywhere else. 8% same store sales increase in the US.
But then the truth never really gets in your way, does it snooze_lose?
