There will always be those people who want instant gratification and only enjoy those stocks that go up 50 points in a day (and go down 100 points the next), but for the rest of us... I live in Az and go to the Krispy Kremes from time to time. I have only been there once when there was no line. Everytime I drive by the place, the parking lot is full, and there is a line of cars blocking the road to get to the drive through. There is a bagel shop less than a mile from where I work that also sells Krispy Kremes, and everytime I am in there, they are restocking the shelves. A product that many enjoy! And this anticipation is by word of mouth. I have yet to see an advertisement for Krispy Kremes on TV or the radio. Sounds like a good stock to me, and just bought some today. So, if you want to pretend to get rich on those hot-aired .com companies that don't even have products and are losing money, good luck to you.
and managed well---why did they rank up all that debt (where most of the ipo money went) and paid $7,000,000 of ipo money to insiders etc. etc. Think about it again sweet pea--if not for the ipo--they would have serious financial problems and guess what -nothing has changed except that can get bigger loans now that they have erased the debt. See in the 20s.
