    Noboa lean and

    ........... ?
    Only 4 vessels shipped last
    week, one to N-Europe, East Coast, West Coast and
    China. They close the lines to Poland and Adriatic Sea.
    They have only 8.000 ha banana land in productiona and
    have a lot of EU import licenses.
    Who is
    interested?

    • Becuase you've obviously lost money on banana
      stocks. Thinking this thing will hit $11 on a buyout, and
      15 to 20 after that is about the dubmest thing to
      hit this board in quite some time. You could buy a
      healthy position of this thing at 4 and some change.
      Hell, even a printed story of someone buying 5% of this
      dog only sent it up to 5 and some change, and then
      it's lost almost 75% of that jump.

      you've
      shown your knowledge of the industry and this company
      with your past performance.

      Suggest you stick
      with a passbook savings account, at least your family
      will preserve most of their capital (adj. for
      inflation).

      If you think CQB has $9 worth of assets, and $2 for
      cash, I suggest (as I have MANY times) that you re-read
      this board from message number 1. There are plenty of
      posters on here who can explain why tht logic is flawed.

    • probable based on $9 for assets and $2 for
      cash...the average is $15 AND IF the future buyer thinks the
      tariffs situation is workable then I would say
      $20.

      Personally I dont think CQB will sell...this would be a
      hostile takeover if anything. I see $15 this year do to
      better pricing and other CQB cutbacks.

      Whats
      interesting is that CQB has planted a huge investment in new
      banana trees last year.
      Linder made huge investments
      in CQB at $10-$12 at market. And his insurance
      company owns another 40% of CQB.

      Something BIG
      will break 1st or 2nd qtr this year.

      My average
      price for CQB is $20 due to margins I placed on this
      stock and had to sell. I am hoping for a turnaround
      this year.

      Regards

    • Based on current company financials.....long term
      tarrif implications.....consolidation
      costs........current fruit products markets/futures, an unleveraged
      buyout price of $7 to $10 is possible. Otherwise the
      stakeholders wait three years for recovery to previous profit
      level and stock price.

    • It is terrific and is available in many exotic flavors. Have been able to buy it in CA and CO from stand-up coolers in the grocery store.

    • wild. the product is Fresh and is so good.my wife
      & granddaughter think it's great and they are
      picky. cqb & costco need to get "naked" products nearer
      ilovemakingmoney's home. perhaps cqb & costco reps should read this
      msg board?
      oh, and thanks for the info runngwild.
      we thought because it's in costco here, it's in all
      the costco's.

    • Jungle Jim's in Fairfield is the only market
      which sells Naked Juice in S.OH. Few areas west of the
      Rockies sell Naked Juice. The reason is the shelf life is
      only a couple days. It contains natural ingredients
      and no perservatives. It takes too much time to ship
      from the west coast to the eastern states and ensure
      it's freshness quality. California Day Fresh markets
      Naked Juice toward health conscience, upper income
      folks. From what I hear, this is a limited market in
      Cincinnati. Call Jungle Jim's before you go just to be sure
      they have Naked Juice in stock.
      Good Luck!

    • the problem is the plant is in CA and freight and short shelf life make it tough to sell that far east. That is why it is available in Costco in the west and not Kroger in the east.

    • guess you never read our posts? we have been
      drinking "naked" brand juice for months. we get it at
      Costco, Eugene,OR. The fresh squeezed gallons is so good.
      $4.89 a gallon. We want to try the berry flavor but
      haven't got that yet. green machine is good too but very,
      very spendy. about $7 a half gallon. all fresh, all
      natural. we really like your positive posts btw.

    • more trees on their plantation? I do not think
      they will follow Doles lead of 17% cut back.It wouldnt
      make since. Carl has something going on. He has
      6-digit millions invested in this company around $10-$15.
      Its toooooooo quiet.

    • with Europe is nailed down and turns out to be equitable for both sides. Christ it was $50 before the tariffs hit.
