    When does the Q4 get posted

    SMBL is not a "shell" company or an LBO to be flipped. A team of seasoned food industry veterans came together to build a branded business. That is what attracted many of us!
    They do outsource all their R&D (they do not have technical people doing product development) and they contract manufacture (own no factories). SMBL folks are all business ,marketing, and sales guys.

    The problem is they seem distracted by a singular goal to enrich themselves, by any method, as fast as possible - i.e stock options that could "give" them half the current stock float for free within 5 years. The options bounty is new stuff - the past 6 weeks.
    The stock has done nothing but trend down since the IPO. You do get a chance to "trade" as SMBL it does have some alpha. You get in and out at successively lower prices each time you trade. Management seems more interested in pulling compensation for themselves than focusing on building the honest business. Their lofty goals are starting to miss, and some of us started to see the wolves in sheeps clothing.

    They may do well someday, but shareholders (long) will not benefit very well unless they address new corporate governance problems.
