What does this have to do with Jones Soda? Suppose AFFY went to zero what difference will that make in JSDA's operations or abiity to remain in business?
before the Q1 Results are due to be released makes one womder if it's a set up to con folks into believing surprising good news is coming or a really big surprise of improvement being made. Won't be that long a wait to find out.
a con? have you been watching tv to much? its not a con. the quarter will probably be better than the last disasterous quarter. why? how could it be much worse? also you had some insider buying of a tiny amount of stock. that seldom happens. i think maybe a couple insiders set aside a few hundred dollars a month, then buy shares every few years. i would expect a run up into earnings, especially in May where you have the beginning of season. people dont drink jones in the winter and fall apparently. they slowly dehydrate. then sprng comes and they poof up again. besides the fufuberry crop looks good this year. as well, you keep reading about how good soda is for children. maybe the initiatives at marketing the stuff to kids is starting to take hold. i would expect to see 52 cents or so.
the key will be "is the quarter better than last year's same quarter". I would expect the answer should be an unequivocal yes, however, considering what company did this past quarter, that the soda sector is still in a funk, etc. I think we could see year over year as flat or even slightly negative to comparable quarter last year. If so, then it will be time to run for the hills.
lol. you are not going to see yoy growth!! are you insane? they are losing distribution. starting over. a non-filing bankruptcy type strategy. you are going to hope to see declining rate of decrease. you have to understand that the management at this point dont have any real strategy or products to work with. hence the market cap of a couple of chuck-e-cheese restaurants. if they were near flat with some sign of increase, then huzzah! if sales were up you would not have a share price essentially at a 52 week low. expect bad news. but hope the news is better than last quarter's steaming pile of failure.
Maybe you should watch Tv more often then you'd know what day it is.. Last reported Insider open market buy was in 2012. Millions of unexercised options still alive on the table.
Instead of making wild guesses it will not be that long before actual data is released. Q1 results were reported I believe May 5, 2013. They should be out around the same time this year.
um. Mar 16, 2012 TRANER CARRIE LOfficer 10,000 Direct Purchase at $0.50 per share. 5,000
Mar 14, 2012 CAUTERO RICHARD VDirector 9,600 Direct Purchase at $0.51 per share.
wild guesses? how are my expectations wild guesses? they have consistently reported decreasing performance now for years. why would it be different. they announced and people here confirmed loss of distribution, further indicating erosion. plus the entire industry consisting of people who actually know what they are doing is declining yoy. sorry. expecting the children's soda business to continue to fail is highly logical, not wild speculation.
although if you have been suggesting that jones is doing well, you have really nailed it thus far.
world market carried jones products for a while, until they just sat on the shelf. World market was not the "spot" to try to sell those products. surf shops and one hitter markets are good sell points for this. I've watched a lot of stores drop this product in the last 2 years, as the revenue declines continue, so do the dropped stores.....
Thursday after the close we'll get to hear more about this fabulous turnaround. Shareholders will once again get a thrashing, and a lower share price. After the release and trade opens friday morning, I look to see .30 to .35 trading range. They can not say anything to improve the already dismal revenue dips. The thought of them putting more lipstick on the pig sickens me. They have a good product, just mediocre leaders. If just someone knew how to climb a stone wall could lead us back up.......Oh wait, been there done that. The only remote possibility here, is if they pre-sold and booked sales to the Texas distributor in Q-1? If they did, then they might cook the revenue numbers higher. One can hope that the goofy Canadians continue to but product. Whole foods in California still had product on the shelf, but does it sell? My thought is if you own shares sell before the close on Thursday, otherwise, you could take a shellacking on Friday. Wash, rinse, repeat.....
If I did make a .25 cent call, so be it. It did however reach a one year low, and has not recovered. At .45 and painting the tape at the close, we'll probably see low .40cent range until friday morning. Read my above post again, and tell me I'm wrong. They have showed no announcements of any kind in Q-1. No new partnerships, no new anything. Not even Fiat will partner with them again this year. They probably even screwed the Texas distributorship.
No capital to do anything, but hang pictures in the lobby as they get closer to closing the doors ,
