      *Are you (pa2eee) honestly promoting the argument that vending machine sales are likely to have any impact whatsoever on KKD's business? Please tell me you're joking.


      >>> The only thing pa2eee could actually suceesfully promote is a law making it Illegal for him and those of his ILK to breed.


      ** Regarding the phrase "temporary bubble" being a worn-out phrase after two years, I suggest you take a look at the boards for YHOO, AMZN, WCOM, etc. circa March 2000. Same rhetoric, same incorrect premise.

      *** If anything is worn out, it is the argument that everything will be OK because it's been just fine up until now. That is the most dangerous premise for any investor to believe.

    • I was on those boards then and I didn't see anyone else saying MSFT, for instance, was going to go down or was too high. I was the only one on the MSFT board buying puts and saying MSFT had only one direction to go and that was down. 95% of the MSFT posters were bullish. MSFT went from 115 to 60 in 9 weeks and was almost impossible to play as it gapped down and popped back up and gapped down in a vicious decline that caught almost everyone unprepared including the bears. MSFT topped out at 120 and dropped to 88 before running the shorts out on that move to 115 in March of 2000. Then the specialist pulled the plug and cut it in half over two months. I was long some 110 puts that I sold when MFST was in the 90's and I thought was ready to rally and instead it gapped into the low 80's and then to 70 and finally to 60. Very few played the puts all the way down and made serious money.

    • not really full of myself as you would say....however,a kk doughnut really has no perservitives in them to give them a week or two shelf life. But hey you r the expert. Go to a gas station look at the doughnuts there see how awfull they look after 3 or 4 hours...tasty
      yeah right....

    • <<Unless you believe that doughnuts will become major food source and soon, you can't
      justify kkd stock price other than as a temporary doughnut bubble.>>

      What does that have to do with vending machine pastry sales?

      I think the use of the words "temporary bubble" is a bit worn out after a 2-year history on the KKD board.

    • > pastry sales in vending machines is popular.

      But it is the vending machine operator who makes most money not the commodity supplier.

      Unless you believe that doughnuts will become major food source and soon, you can't justify kkd stock price other than as a temporary doughnut bubble.

    • Just a little full of ourselves, aren't we?

      I "get the point." However, I still maintain that pastry sales in vending machines is popular. Period.

    • true, but you don't get the point. There are only so many people that will buy a doughnut, so if u put them every place on the corner, why visit a kkd store, like the old saying goes you r robbing peter to pay paul...in other words oversaturating the market.

    • Kkd is in trouble! kkd products have not been moving, especially in south florida outlets. I'm sure the weather has had an effect on sales, but first hand, traveling this region of the country kkd products are not moving; it's very noticable in super markets/gas stations. maybe, it's just the economy?
