The company makes donuts and they have a market
capitalization of over
They only sell donuts,
These donuts have virtually (not absolutely, but
virtually) no nutritional value to the average consumer
And there are people out there that are actually
willing to pay close to $60 per share in this "which way
is it going today" economy for a company who's only
obvious business plan is world domination of a "dessert"
or "confectionary item" that is easily imitable by
several mom and pop vendors on virtually every street
corner in America (We're not dealing with the recipe for
Coca-Cola here, are we?)?
Oh, my! P.T. Barnum was a very smart man indeed. I
have no position in this POS, but I'd say the people
who have been able to short shares in this one are
sitting pretty good right now.
and out at, what was the high?, $80 1/2. Yeah,
that's right. Now down to serious business, is this
going to trade at all today???? I see 9,400 shares
traded. What would happen if you actually wanted to sell
10,000 shares (or buy them, for that matter)?
You can not buy an identical product on every
street corner, if you think it's so then you've never
had a KK doughnut.
Not saying that any of this
justifies a $60 stock price, but people are very loyal to
the brand name.
I think with Coke and Pepsi,
people will take one or the other and not think much
With doughnuts, I prefer a KK, if some
other brand is available, I'll be thinking, "Gee I wish
this were a krispey Kreme doughnut."
difference? now go get 3 hot glazed, 3 chocolate glazed, two
boston creme, two cinnamon apple filled, a fresh
blueberry filled, one strawberry filled, a couple of maple
glazed, and a chocolate glazed coated in peanuts. Add a
gallon of milk, take them to the office and become
I personally don't care whether
it is Coke or Pepsi, but I know a bunch of people
who swear for one and at the other. Same with beer,
some people love Coors like KK fans love their donuts,
others think its pisswater. Personally, I'll drink
Sierra Nevada or nothing.
As a sidebar, I bring
donuts to the office once a week, and one day someone
brought a dozen KK's the same day I brought a dozen
Winchells. THe KK's were the last to go, and a few found the
wastebasket. Just one case I know, but not everyone craves
those sugar and grease concoctions.

If I took your advice, my arteries would
harden before all that sugar touched my lips!
you use a boomerang to put your belt on in the
morning? Is your high school picture an aireal
You KK disciples are SICK!!!!
Are there any other varieties I should pickup to
become instantly popular? If that should do it, are you
sure we've got the correct combination? I think we may
want to sub one glazed and one cinnamon for a
strawberry and chocolate w/peanuts, otherwise we run the
risk of someone turning into a purple dinosour.
I agree with what you say; at some point in time,
KREM's stock price will have to align more closely with
its value, relative to how the valuations of other
stocks out there in its sector are being tallied. At
that time, the stock price will fly straight into the
teens "like shit through a goose"! What movie did that
classic line come from?
sounds like you've never been to a
K.K. maybe you should get the address of one and see
how far down the street the drive through line is.
24-7 the store on harlem and archer in chicago's drive
through is a block long. If knowledge is so good you
should try and aquire some before you make statements
about companies futures. I think we might be dealing
with the recipe for coke, just check out a store
before you post again.
don't waste your breath
take my advice,
the longs here don't have the common sense of a
they will ride this to $ 8 per

responses you get tomorrow
"this is different, it's
a southern institution, 70 year legacy, unique
customer experience, wilbur and jethro drive 70 miles each
way every day to buy them"
only good part is
that after today's performance the elevator ride can't
be too far off
get on board if you can borrow
The've moved to the big city. Two stores already
and if you've investigated the franchise system for
KK yet you'd know that the've got to agree to
eventually open two more stores in the future. Also check
out the available markets for franchising. you'll see
that there are no big metro area available anymore. If
you guys are so smart you'll figure out what that
means. I don't have time to explain everything to you.
