    Five reasons KKD won't beat earnings Wednesday

    1. The weather closed their core stores in the South more this year than in the last 20 years. 2. Gas prices were up 5% over the previous quarter, and they sell most of their donuts through venders away from their donut factrories/stores. 3. Donkin Donuts have opened 100 new stores in the South. 4. Cramers book mentions SBUX as one of three (AMZN & GOOG)best corporations, but never mentions KKD as they are irrelevent. 5. Minimun wage hikes loom in KKD's future.

    • I own, and I have to agree. The last two quarters this guy spoke afterwards and the stock tanked over the next 2 days like 4 points each time, correct? Why should this time be any difference but with him looking for excuses. You know the bad weather one is definitely going to be there....

      • what I've noticed especially this earnings season is that the longs are protecting their turf, they need the shorts to pump up the price before earnings, but don't like them taking quick pop money and high tailing it. So god or bad earnings, the longs sell off just Nuff. To get a. Good drop in price scaring the heck out off the shorts that pickup their losses and go on down the road this is usually the case where the short float is a good chunk, I believe KKD is about 10per cent, so that might not happen here. As much, but we're about to see real soon. A drop to. 17.75 is my max drop with so so earnings. Great earnings might see 23.50. Good luck

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Dunce cap please refrain from multiple posts saying the same #$%$. Seriously now are you obsessive compulsive or something?

    • The ceo already told us they will be above the top end of the guided range/consensus. But i'll goof on your 5 points of blithering anyway.

      1. Weather does not matter to the analysis of this stock. If the franchisees missed their objectives on weather, they are making it up now. And who doesn;t love a good donut with a cup of good coffee on a cold day?

      2. Gas prices are now dropping hard and don't matter anyway.

      3. We own Dunkin and it is a great story, but their donuts suk. DNKN is making money on sandwiches and drinks, not donuts.

      4. Cramer is a bright guy, but his books and show and advice are for idiots and no better than a dartboard. He plays idiot boy for the morons who would buy his books or listen to his rants on tv. Hello? LOL SBUX is another great company we own... but people do not go there for the world's best donuts. People also don't go to KKD for tea or to read... they go for coffee and donuts. Period...

      5. Minimum wage hike will be a stupid result for all of corporate America, but kkd already pays its people more than the average retailer, so KKD will be less effected than others.
