    suspense is killing me

    waiting for financials to be released.
    my best logic tells me that the financials are complete and they are waiting for deadline to release.
    1. referring to last extension, they asked nyse more than a week before deadline. no info as of today on that front (seeking additional extension.)
    2. they've had more than enough time to complete.
    3. i find it hard to believe that with a few days left, they are frantically trying to finish.
    4. chances of bk in short-run are non-existent based upon liquidity quote from last release.
    5. why would they risk delisting over some minor accting issues. i'm referring to coops statement a few months ago that they were taking extra time to make sure everything was right. he implied that they could get done quicker, but are taking time to make sure all issues are taken care of.

    what would be nice to hear from mgt is some concrete/ specific plan for future, rather than the "sell more coffee/ int'l expansion" jibberish they have been giving us.

    i'm long and roughly break even at this point, but patience is wearing thin and i'm a patient person.

    any intelligent thoughts ?

    • my perspective is long-term. i'm not terribly concerned with short-term price swings.

      my short term predictions are almost always wrong, so i will decline to do so.

      i do agree with what you are implying, which is substantial downside if they don't file or delay further and minimal movement if they do file. unless they release sec/ justice resolution ... if this happens could have some upside but nothing to write home about. the big stock moves will certainly be due to any future revenue/ same store sale increases if/ when they ever happen.

    • "as i stated in earlier post ... i'm guessing that they WILL release financials by april 30th. at the same time, they may also release that they have settled issues with sec/ justice dept. certainly, the feds may still go after livengood, etc ... "

      What happens if you are wrong? What is the downside?
      What happens if you are right? What is the upside?

      Seems to me most longs are expecting for KKD to file. As some of you love to say, this is already reflected on the stock price.

    • i think the delay is due to the cumulation of many factors.

      there may be some truth to coop's "molecular restatement" ... but that can't possibly be the only reason for the delay ... no way. take freddie mac, for example. no company has more complex books than they do and their restatement didn't take this long.

      my theory is that the restatement has been basically done and they may have delayed to due issues regarding sec/ justice dept investigations. these 2 issues are totally related b/c the reason they are investigating IS the reason they have had to restate financials.

      as i stated in earlier post ... i'm guessing that they WILL release financials by april 30th. at the same time, they may also release that they have settled issues with sec/ justice dept. certainly, the feds may still go after livengood, etc ... but he is now separate from kkd. their are countless recent examples of companies cooperating with feds and settling issues after the crooks were ousted.

      pure speculation of course, but it seems like the most logical theory.

    • there are plenty of disagreements that never get resolved. plenty of examples of negotiations that years.

      not sure what utopian world you live in :) but mine is not that hunky doory.

    • <<And of course one prediction that you can take to the bank is that X59 will always take the low road in answering a post.>>

      I'm listening, oh smug one.....what IS the "low road"? What IS the "high road"? Explain yourself. More importantly, does this joke of a message board deserve anything in the way of a "high road"? Which road to the circus, oh smug one?

    • I haven't been here for 5 years like others but I have watched this board for more than 1 year. I just think that it's taken longer than predicted to play itself out but I don't think it means they are wrong. And of course one prediction that you can take to the bank is that X59 will always take the low road in answering a post.

    • Oooops! Should be "their" reputations (was just trying to fit in with the illiterates here).

    • <<If you don't know how KKD works, how do you know that all these posters are wrong?>>

      HISTORY! Look at the BS that has been spewed over the last five years! They're "reputations" precede them! But you and most of the others here wouldn't know anything about that....bottom feeding latecomers, right?

    • If you don't know how KKD works, how do you know that all these posters are wrong?

    • My x boy, you sure are edgy for someone who says that ALL posts on the donut chat board or useless lines of dribble!

      You have to be related to one the ex kkd management people or better yet, maybe you are now an ex kkd management person.

      You are such a putz!
