replaces "from the fridge" with "bottles and cans". exclusive mention of 7-11 select, including sodas (made for 7-11 by jones). adds new 7-11 select categories : juices, coconut water, and plain water. one of the coconut waters is in yellow container - impossible to read, but it may be lemon-coconut water.
Bad mouthing something without knowing any of the facts? what a shock!!!
10th grade business class say's that this might be a bad promotion if Jones soda has to pay for the car at even a discounted price, on the other hand if their partner Fiat is providing a free car to be used in the promotion it appears to be a great deal for Jones as it seems as though they are only required to promote the contest on their websites and not pay for any major external advertising.
Years ago I was involved with a company that gave away an El Camino filled with outdoor gear in one year, a Harley in another and we gave away free items to performers to wear in an attempt to build awareness of a brand. These approaches were much cheaper, had longer impact and had more bang for the buck than traditional adds when handled properly.
Do you know whether the car was provided free of charge by Fiat or not?
that would be laughed out of a 10th grade business class. of course, sales of the core products are below where they were years ago with little progress. of course, they had to turn to private label. what a marketing mess.
I hope you guys didn't sell the stock when I said "game over" - I was just kidding about that! whoops - Now jones is telling me, I mean I'm telling you or somebody is saying something - they're out of business in a year - yea I know - 52 weeks just doesn't sound as dumb - whoops!
JC hung the company poster and sticker,s by the water cooler so everyone would see it ...
"We use point-of-sale materials such as posters, stickers, hats and T-shirts to create and increase consumer awareness of our proprietary products and brands"
Jones Soda Co. and the FIAT brand have kicked off its fourth annual “Jonesin’ for a FIAT” contest.
stayed at home in the barn. maybe next year we will see some initiatives in marketing the products. it will all come down to earnings as to whether the share price gets back up. nothing else to see here. kind of sad.
of jones and reed is $5 million apart. slightly due to jones imprving marginally btut mostly due to collapse of reed. crhris needs to go sit on expert panel and tell an audience how to ruin your reputation and destroy your company, shareholders and brands. all while bragging how much bettre you are then your competition.
This post was so easy - just copied and pasted from 2015 - can't wait until I can post it in 2021 whoops!
Jones told you dummy March 2017 ...out of cash
Jones low margin model has burned through 60 million in the last 9 years and has a mountain of debt ....
keep pumping your 49 k profit last quarter ....
why don't you tell us whats wrong with Jones business model...
.OH that's right nothing is wrong..... Jones is going to the moon .....where all gonna be rich ..Jones will be bigger than COKE and PEPSI combined .....we will wake up soon to 100.00 pps before running to 1000.00 in short time ....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Go JONES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In theory you can build a plan that could potentially have this company become more relevant in the industry. They are an ongoing concern and have vendor relationships. they even will be a break even company to slightly profitable. The problem is that great idea's mean nothing if you don't have the infrastructure to make it happen. When you look back on when Jones was something and had a market cap in excess of $800m, they had a different management team and the support of a larger successful beverage company with some seasoned beverage pros. That is what is missing and until that changes Jones will not matter.....
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Did I tell you I'm an expert on when companies are going out of business? - I did...well I'm also an expert on operational efficiency - whoops!
Low margin model ....using a 3rd party for everything ...need to bring production in house to lower cost of goods and increase margins ....Jones doesn't have the capital to pull that off ...so it's cutting operational expense while trying to gain some sales traction ...
If jones can increase sales ...operational expense will increase = same low margin model
Jones incentive plan dilutes up to 10% a year ..so with very little growth and break even numbers Jones stock is going nowhere ...
