Remember this was for the Qtr that ended Sept 30th. All those Halloween Cans, that sold out in Oct.
were not included... Next qtr is going to be +001 to +.002 a share. The stock will be trading over a Buck in 2014.... I think we will see $1.25 to $1.75 in 2014... This is another 100% gainer. You have to
wait and be patient, JC, is not doing a Meissner, way of breaking the bank. She fixed this over ten years back, and this is a mirror image. The is a $3 to $5 dollar stock. Just sit back by more drink up and soar...
so here's a lesson for ya at no charge.
losing money on gaap earnings does not always equate to losing actual money.
if you look at the cash flow statements you will see they are generating cash 2 of the last 4 quarters.
it's the cash stupid, and on a cash basis they have lost a de minimus amount of money over the last year.
now talk amongst yourselves and give me a thumbs down.
Don't mean to rain on your parade, but the Halloween cans were probably shipped and the revenue recognized prior to Sept 30th. that would have given Target at least a month to sell the product for the holiday.
From the 10Q
"The increase in revenue was primarily due to a seasonal program for Halloween during the third quarter of 2013 "
Any mark down allowances for left over inventory that Target sold at clearance will fall into this quarter.
The good news seemed to be an 11.6% increase in sales in the core markets.
"as well as improvement in our core markets which resulted in increased case sales of 11.6%"
As long as that does not include the Target sales it is a pretty good sign, but without a boost from the holiday product as in the third quarter will sales rise in the fourth?
The halloween cans won't provide much of a noticeable improvement in sales. I do think we see an imporvement this quarter (year over year) based on the disclosure in the conference call about the expanded relationship with Walmart. They're adding 3 4-pack flavors to all the stores this Q.
