I just phoned my girl friend who works at Starbucks near Jones Soda headquarters in Seattle. She knows I have more Jones stock than most women my age. I have been buying since $4.66 and am long all the way.
She just saw Peter and has a good relationship with him. They joke around but he knows she is constantly searching for clues about the company.
She said hello and 'is there something I can tell Wendy about today's conference call?'
She said he turned around and came back VERY close to her and said, "She will like this one but will REALLY like the next one".
I asked her what she thinks this means. She thinks it might means there is some good news coming but not any HUGE surprizes.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Anyay, I am not a seller.
i said the same thing that you said, but when she said that the post was reposted I said that the repost should say that it wasnt a new post but a repost from something you said back in aug.
Funny how he doesn't release any news, but he's willing to share info with a barrista. Maybe our analysts should get jobs as the frothers there so they can pick up some info on how to come up with accurate estimates.
The info that he shared to the barista was pretty vague considering we are debating all the possible meanings it could have, but it is something that I would like to hear him say one or two time in between the quarters. The secretary probably said more than she should have, if PVS heard her say all that. Overall it is positive and in another two hours it will be supported.
News direct from Peter?? News from his secretary?? Does anyone really believe that? If true, he and she could go to jail, and if not true, the one starting this story could, (or be sued).
That is VERY , VERY sensitive , trading could be halted as a result of that post, IT IS inside information. further evidence that women should should stay out of the market
what a dumb post
No, it is extremely unlikely either one of the stories is true. Look how careful Peter was on the investors conference with questions. I think he, unlike many CEO's, is ethical and wouldn't leak out anything. I think we're in for a big suprise tonight!!
Well this comment from just prior to last Q earnings release lends a bit of credibility to her comments...
you can't sue someone for spreading rumors if they're not with the company. If that were true, most of the posters here would be in deep poo.
You have to take what's posted here with a grain of salt. Most of this is really just entertainment and socializing (with like-minded individuals - long or short). If you use a message board as gospel, you're likely to get your shirt stolen.
I am a total pansy: I am long via FIZZ (and a very small sliver of 20 Dec-07 calls). I do plan to get more serious about a long position though if I really like what PVS has to say this PM. Tough to get super excited about long anything in this market, though. Holy vol!
$15mil and ACV up higher than estimated would be needed. I only really feel sorry for the folks still long from the $25-30+ range. I road the coaster down short and have a nice long position now since it appeared to be a good entry. A modest pop up would do me well. Although I can stomach a drop to $12, I'm still hoping for the $16+ share price to hit.
Sorry. I promise I took my medicine this AM but I am still wound up today.
I think we are both saying the same thing (see my other post in this thread about the duality of the party).
Good luck to you, my man. I really hope they crush it (I get to gloat in a major way if sales exceed 15M).
