    Report: KKD at JFK Airport

    Here is a firsthand report, which although it is anecdotal and is only one data point, is an indicator of the future of KKD:

    In the last few months I have had to fly in/out of New York's JFK airport. In the JetBlue terminal, they have a Dunkin' Donuts kiosk, and another vendor has a medium-sized KKD display. The last two times I came through there in the evening the DD kiosk was doing a brisk business, while the KKD display was sitting there with most of its inventory, after a full day. Nobody was around it.

    Last night I noticed that the KKD display is gone. Not really surprising, is it? Pretty much tells the story, folks.

    • Please EXPLAIN the revenue side to us.....???

    • <<< <Sorry that you're a member of the 90% club.>

      The "90% club" has been dead on accurate and profitable taking short positions for the last two years while longs were embarassed.

      We've seen you before, the "Oversold!" club, at 30, 20, 10, and now 6.

      Arb THAT! >>>

      The situation isn't static. It's all about knowing the right time to buy.

    • < The REVENUE side?????? Are you for real?? or just on drugs???? >

      Another clueless short.

      Where is Diworseify? He has dis_a_pier_d. Has he covered his shorts?

    • In the northeast kkd is NOT selling very well... That's for sure...

    • <How can we possibly NAME your busy local store, when the stores where we live are totally EMPTY!!! However, being busy in only certain parts of the country is NOT a good thing.... >

      Since the shorts contend that KKD stores are the closest thing to a morgue, and there are so few busy KKD stores, it should be easy to name the few stores that are busy.

      Since none of the shorts can name the busy stores, it is obvious that the shorts don't have a clue about the revenue side of KKD, yet the shorts claim to know so much about KKD's bad fortunes going forward.

    • That's the kind of in-depth research Harry does before investing his money. No wonder he's bitching about the market being rigged.

      "If you've been in a poker game for 30 minutes and don't know who the patsy is, you're the patsy."

    • I just thought OSCI would be a good addition to my healthcare sector. If it's new drug,
      FACTIVE (treatment for chronic bronchitis and
      community-acquired pnemonia) can be marketed successfully, it should help OSCI take off.

      But, they have marketing issues and I don't have patience for pharmecuetical firms that don't have aggressive plans for selling their latest and greatest FDA approved drug.

      If you're willing to wait it out, OSCI may very well be a good buy at this point. But again, I'm not that patient.

    • Six,

      Nice!

      The shorts on this board only know about the negatives, don't confuse them with the facts about the positives.

      The shorts want everyone to believe there are no KKD stores that are busy, so they have support for their assertions that KKD is going BK and going to zero.

      Not one of the shorts could name my busy local store.

      The BK Boys are all smoke and mirrors.

      ____________________________________________
      Smoke & mirrors? Really? As compared to what? the crystal clear, documented, verifiable case you've presented? Almost everthing posted by the shorts on this board (with the exception of daddylongstroke, and possibly a few others) has been documented by citing sources, locations, even providing phone numbers for independent documentation. Don't give us this, "if you knew KKD you'd know what store was busy" BS. Shorts have long concluded that KKD remains strong in its historical Southern base. If shorts are stating that sales are declining, it's because that is the only public statement being issued by the company. So unless you are prepared to give details supporting your position, we have to assume that you are either 1. another pathetic contrarian long waiting for a short squeeze that will somehow materialize merely because of the massive short interest, or 2. you are one of those laughable longs who really like the donuts, and figure the stock must be good too.

      Thank you Yahoo for the ignore feature.
