    Report: Ponce de Leon Store, Atlanta

    ... on and on ....

    I've got a problem with this board. It has been said that we learn more from those who disagree with us than from those who share our views. Here, we get a bucketfull of negative facts and analysis, but the positives -- the KKD longs -- seem limited to vague generalities and living in the past. Nothing of any substance worth an argument or likely to test a bearish view of KKD's future -- businesswise or stockwise.

    ... so?

    Well here are some questions on which I have an opinion and which shape my outlook. Let me frame them in a positive sense and ask the Longs for any supporting facts or opinions. Questions for debate.

    >>) The overall U.S. market for doughnuts is growing, as evidenced by .....

    >>) KKD's share of the U.S. market is not substantial and KKD is not approaching market saturation, as evidenced by ....

    >>) Despite the investment and personnel required, KKD's doughnut factory concept is not limited economically to just major market areas, because ....

    >>) While built on the "Hot Theater" concept and aggressive promotion, KKD's brand recognition will extend to packaged doughnuts sold at wholesale, because ....

    >>) KKD is not and will not be subject to major competition in either the retail or wholesale doughnut market, because....

    >>) KKD's wholsale business is profitable, and its growing proportion of total sales will not diminish overall rate of profit or the stock's P/E, because ...

    >>) KKD's forthcoming financing will have a positive effect on share price, because ....

    >>) There is a substantially greater prospect of future good rather than bad news for KKD, because ....

    >>) The foregoing questions have no relevance to KKD, because ...

    ... do you really think you'll get anything more than continued generalities and vague opinions?

    Let's see. I'd truly like to hear some persuasive argument, facts and logic, supporting the long view. Something we might learn from.

    ... optimist

    Worth a try.
