As far as a speculative stock goes, with what management has done in the past year to transform the company, what the founder is doing to stay true to the brand and heritage - there is little doubt in my mind that this stock is destined to be a very good story. So long as management remains focused and committed, as long as the founders retain a presence and humility for what they are doing for coffee lovers then they will be a true and genuine success. The day to day noise is just that and nothing more. The Street is simply waiting to see the next earnings and i suspect they will be significantly better than the previous report and will catch a lot of attention. Stay the course and good things will happen over a natural timeline of progression.
I completely agree. It boggles my mind that people still consider this stock a pump and dump. If you look at the efforts (and headlines over the past year or so) that the Company has put in to establish its international roots, its clear to see where this company is headed. I believe that the reason why profits aren't exactly where investors want them to be is based on the R&D that the Company has put in to creating a desirable product and finding their nitch in the market. Once that is complete and they have a firm grasp on where they 'fit in,' Profits will be through the roof. IMHO the stock is selling at a bargain for what it will clearly one day be.
