Can everyone just let the price drift down a bit and let him cover his short? Time is ticking, news could come any day. He has bills to pay, car, mortgage, and winter will be here before you know it so there will be a heating bill as well. He doesn't mean to be a douche, but he has no other choice at the moment. Once he covers and is out of his short position he'll probably be an ok dude (that is a big MAYBE though, no guarantees).
Please have some mercy.
Ok, I got the $4.00 dividend, and I particiapate in the div reinvestment program at Etrade. The dividend was reinvested at the pre-dividend price of 15.89, versus the post-dividend price of around 12 or so.
Should the reinvestment be invested at the post-div price? I automatically lost 25% market value on my position and on my dividend dollar amount after the reinvestment. I email etrade to inquire but they are saying it is right.
For example 150 shares would get you $600, but after it is reinvested at $16 at close, you get 37.50 shares woth $600, but the the next day upon opening it is worth $450, so you automatically lose 25% on your investment. I would at a financial services company any dividends never shuld impact your market value, just offset...
Was something different with thisa dividend? If I just kept in cash and decided not to reinvest i would not have been hit with this drop.

Someone send this to the Colbert Report and get Steven to mention it on his show! He'd get tons of people to buy the colas...if he approves of the idea; he always has wacky/funny sh*t on his show...
I'll be picking some up this week; had no idea the 7-11 was carrying. Let's clean them out...I'm assuming you meant to say it's off of Hand.c.o.c.k Street...
I may buy some for the office party secret santa this year. Someone always brings a crappy joke gift, may as well be me.
This is just downright ridiculous. I'm been hanging by Jones and PVS for a few years now and expected things to pick up after the past 3 shitty quarters, but damn I've just about had it with this bullshit, hope Peter gets ass raped by a bottle of pure cane soda...
I was at my local Ruby Tuesdays this past week (I'm a regular at the bar somewhat) and to my surprise they had bottles of Jones Soda (grape and orange) and Organics on the shelf. I learned they had just come in this week, and I asked the bartender some questions and learned the following:
-They haven't been making mixed drinks with the soda or organics, but she told me she's been selling a ton of them, it is a family restaurant after all - lots of kids.
-It will be on the menu starting next week :)
Next time I'm there, probably in the next few days, I'll order a mixed drink...any suggestions? It'd be a boon if there was a popular mixed drink that calls for Jones Soda...
Bloomberg reports stock options have been granted to Jones' employees. 281,500 options at 18.67 to expire 2012.
There's incentive at Jones to keep the price moving up, and at this price it will be a bargain by 2012.
Is it fair to say that going from 2% to 25% means revenue increases of 12.5x last year or roughly 400+ million going forward?
Also, what are the chances of a split/stock dividend coming up, any thoughts?
There should be a law against retards posting on boards. Why do we have to put up with such garbage? Who are these idiots, where do they live, and why do our school systems in the U.S. fail so miserably?
>>don't sweet the $.50 drop. jones will skyrocket after the march conf call. Saw their product in Albertson,Costco and Walmart last week. My prediction is $40-$50 by mid spring. Coke and Pepsi are interested. Cane vs Fructose is an appealing option and point of differentiation. I'm betting on coke to acquire for a cool $1B in the near future.
Can you say, retirement fund!<<
First of all I think the poster meant "don't sweat the drop" not "don't sweet the drop." Anyways, if you predict that Jones will be trading at $40-$50 by spring that will bring it's market value somewhere between $1.016 billion to 1.27 billion. Now Coke or Pepsi is going to buy Jones out at a discount, offering shareholders less than what the company's market value is?
We must all work together as a community to end retarded postings. Let's make retarded postings history.
