Once again, a ridiculously overvalued stock. Even during last month's pull back, the stock still traded at a valuation that was unsupported by its potential market size in A and B malls. I see two additional legs down for the stock: growth target misses as new stores in less-appealing malls fail to generate the same returns as previously-opened stores and decelerating SSS given the lower rate of repeat customers.
JVA 47% of profits because of direct relationship with GMCR GMCR is expanding facilities in North Carolina / Vermont / Canada JVA has a direct relationship with GMCR for over 18+ yrs. GMCR needs to expand infrastructure, JVA brings that JVA president and COO opted out of bonuses and took a 10% pay reduction. This is just a token move toward investors. GMCR is on the cusp of 2nd generation brewers and new patents, rumored Feb 15th. Lot's of consolidation in JVA stock hedge funds are holding it in tight trading range. I believe this company will be purchased once brewers are introduced. As in TEA and GMCR, I've done my research. IMHO this company will be acquired.
