    • I never said they'll be the next Amazon. I said
      they want to own the gifting category and they're
      executing flawlessly. They have 8.3 million customers, they
      can leverage those numbers to expand into different
      areas. They have the exposure at every major site so
      when the customer sees the flashing food basket when
      he's ordering flowers for his wife's birthday, he'll
      remember to go to Flowers when he wants to send his mom a
      gourmet basket for mother's day. A smaller company can't
      pull it off and stay profitable, that's why Amazon can
      do it once they built their customers base.

      You obviously have an agenda against this company.
      I'm not sure if you're short or have a personal
      problem with the company itself. But I think you lack
      credibility on this board because of your lack of


    • I don't think it possible to make an acquisition
      that will NOT affect a company's profit & loss GOING
      FORWARD. Have you ever heard of acquisitions (under
      purchase accounting) being referred to accretive or
      dilutive to earnings? That is referring on the effect of
      the acquisition on eps of the combined entity in
      future reporting periods. Who cares about accounting
      treatment -- I'm interested in future profitability.

    • I sure hope they get McCann on a person
      appearance contract, great TV personality too, clear
      speaking voice, gray and or no hair and a matching beard
      and he does motivational speaking to. They couldn't
      miss having him tag line each and every book they
      promote..."Hi, I'm Jim McCann, you don't know me from Adam and I
      know I'm hard to look at and understand, but please by
      this book".

    • Amazon making a "killing" htere's a novel
      idea...since they have yet to profit. Oh yeah, you and others
      believe this is the next Amazon....probably true, they
      won't make a profit either...and FLWS stock will never
      reach their heights...but thanks for the stupid coments

    • In a negative market, this stock is doing great.
      The acquisition today for only $18 million is great.
      I love it. I still think that Amazon is going to
      swallow these guys by $30, but it will get there with or
      without them very soon. This stock is ready to explode. I
      am loading up, baby.

    • picture here? Flowers wants to be the one stop
      shop for gift items. They are leveraging their name
      and infrastructure to be the premier gift place on
      the internet. Would you believe Amazon be selling
      toys last year? They are and they're making a killing.
      Why? They are leveraging their name to be the one stop
      shop for anything you can order online.

      Speaking of Amazon, the only category that they don't
      provide is flowers and gifts...

      As far as the
      purchase today, McCann hinted that they had a boat load of
      cash (I think $250 million) on Cavuto and that they
      would be using it for possible acquisition. When the
      stock rebounds and truly reflects the value of this
      company, they will use it as currency for future

      Don't read much into today's moves. Low volume with
      some jittery hands. CEO will speak tomorrow at the
      Credit Suisse/First Boston conference. If CSFB comes out
      with a coverage, say bye bye to the teens


    • for millions and millions and then try to sell
      food products. Flowers = Food? What a waste of time
      and the lack of cohesive direction here should be
      concerning whether or not this is good purchase? Oh, do they
      have Crow?

    • This ends up as a balance sheet item. Cash out
      assets in. Basics. If goodwill was paid we will see a
      small portion ending up at the P&L. Cant beleive people
      investing in the stock market without this kind of

    • FLWS is way undervalue now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • heading north.
