Why do people write nonsense like this? There is no magic breakout fairy that makes stocks go up absent a catalyst, regardless of what stoxline says.
And, yes, I know this is an old message, but it gets tiresome seeing nonsense like this on many boards.
wrappin and rolling going to take Thomasville down with it. Enjoying playing with yourself? processed bread products. Yuck.
Flowers bakery has always seemed expensive. When I first bought them, they were building a frozen foods plant in thomasville and it took longer than they estimated. I fretted a good bit before I bought. Ever since then when I look at the stock, it always looks too expensive, but, that is because it splits often, more than any stock you can just compare it to. With splits and time and spinoffs, my basis is below $2/sh. Yes, I like bread and eat it everyday. I tried the one shorter here's, (garritslongsucker}, advise and put ham, cheese, mayo, mustard directly on my hands and ate it. It was ok, but would have been a better hand sandwich if it had been between two very good slices of flowers bread. A peanut butter hand sandwich is just dumb and I did not try that. I am sticking to bread for my sandwiches.
Flowers will always be too expensive for you to own. If all you can afford is an option and a wish, go for it. Wrap up, roll up, now did you make that up? Short mans mantra, wrap up, roll up, bagholders, pos, house of cards, going down, getting delisted, deptofjustice, sec, permalongs, blah, blah, blah,,,,,,, yes, all you need is a chip and a chair, until there is no place to sit at the table. Broke and muttering to yourself, you walk away...... silently for the rest of us still here. Shorts never have parting words when they lose their gamble. Most just shut up and buy long, like you will. Silently.
all you got is clichés? must be eating too much carbs. Flowers is a wrap rollup company. It covers up failed legacy ops with acquisitions, with $900 million in debt how long can that continue? You fall in love with company, I see it for what it is. You need lovin long time from a person, not a company. Company can't suck your pole.
Yes it is a close call here. The insiders selling in mass,certainly should merit everyone's attention,plus the
forward pe is 20+,and of course there is that debt overhang,plus a puny dividend. All that does not a bargain
make. Will keep buying their products,but not the stock just yet.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Hey Tripepan, pull up all of your posts, then sit your family down, if you have one, and read them out loud. Yes, that is how daddy thinks, bad, awful thoughts, and then he writes them down for everyone to see. Not one positive post or one nice word. You will raise other ignorant, abrasive ranters. Oh, Flowers? It will do nicely without you. Good luck with your other investments, hope they pay off. Oh, when you make or eat a sandwich, do your hands get mayo and mustard on them? I mean, without bread, you must put the condiments directly on your hands. or, maybe you do not eat sandwiches and your favorite meal is right out of the Alpo can? Ok tell us what you eat. Crow is not a meal, it is a lesson.
Let us know when you get paroled from NYC Jail, we will barbque a possum and you can have a roll in the hay with Jethrow and his brother, just like NYC jail, huh.
wrap rollup company, tastycake tastes like plastic. debt has SOARED debt almost 900% in last 3 years. Over $900 million now.
I sold out at 21.82 on 12/16, but I have not gone short.
I like the potential here, but I am worried about valuations in the market as a whole. I am particularly a fan of the Tastykake franchise, which I would hope to see rolled out nationwide.
You are correct that there have been fair number of insider sales, but these appear to be mostly related top option exercises or non-open market transactions.Yahoo shows that insiders still hold 25.78M shares (over 12% of the float), which is sizable.
Institutions have sold off somewhat in the most recent quarter as well.
I think we may be getting closer to a fair valuation with the recent drop in price.
Someone on this board said it is foolish to short a bread company; it is the officers and their families currently selling FLO....they plan on having a Merry Xmas at the common shareholder's expense. With the market up 103 point on the Dow, FLO just kept falling. Insiders selling their stock options and you are paying for it. Merry Xmas! Management works so hard....wouldn't you agree they deserve your money?
