Now she says that since the Chinese Stock Market is going down, that less Chinese people will buy new iPhones. LMAO, is she even thinking of what she is saying before she speaks? There are hundreds of millions of people in the US and all over the world that have never invested a penny in the stock market but those people buy iPhones and upgrade all the time.
Yes I would because aside from the market, i do have a job and make decent pay to be able to afford things like a cell phone. My market money is play cash that if it burns tomorrow, I move on and continue living my life.
Exactly. What a crock of you know what. This is incredible the criminals on Wallstreet that keep on getting away with lies and fabricated stories
CEO should be fired and immediately. This is unacceptable. Stock was at $158 a share just 6 months ago. Now its trading at $97 and probably going to drop more tomorrow. How does a CEO allow this to happen? If something goes wrong with a product you then correct it immediately or at the very least come out and say something positive to assure shareholders that the company is still going to move forward. This is a joke. And I dont know if its management behind this, Coke or what.... But this is really #$%$ me off
Now Wall Street has nothing else to talk about except for the Taylor Swift thing. Wow, really people? The story is like hours overdone already. Saying that Apple management is weak, that Apple got their butt kicked by Swift. That Swift over powered Apple. Please people, Apple did not give in to Swift nor did they get manhandled. They simply don't care and figured they would avoid the headache. The cost to Apple is practically a drop in the bucket. Move on and lets talk about something else.
I understand that they missed by 2 pennies on the EPS and by a couple million on the revenue. I understand that they lowered guidance which was mainly due to cost from the recalled machines. Analysts talking about slowing sales in machines and my response to that is that people usually buy a machine and keep it for several years until it breaks. This is not a cellphone company (ala Apple) where we upgrade every 12 months or so. The bottom line here is sale of Kcup coffee, partnerships with other companies and the big partnership with Coke to bring out this cold soda machine this year. The stock has dropped from a year high of $158 and just in the last 5 days it has dropped from $118 to now $95. This is unheard of and really uncalled for. If management has any cares for this company and wants to save it they better do it now and or convince Coke to buy them out right now and right here.
Question is not if they will buy GMCR, but when they will buy it and how much will they pay. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure that out. Coke has already come out on numerous occasions stating that they desperately want to get into the coffee business and at home beverage industry. More and more households are getting involved in the at home brew it yourself mentality. Not just for the cost savings but the convenience of just walking to your kitchen and making whatever beverage, coffee, tea, etc of their choice instantly without having to drive to a Starbucks, Whole Foods or whatever place people spend tons of money at. I for example love coffee and drink it 3-4 times a day. Everything from Espresso, Late, Ice Coffee, Flavored Coffee etc. My wife hates coffee but loves Soda. She drinks soda 3-4 times a day and always complains about how expensive soda is at the supermarket and how it goes flat as soon as you open the bottle or can. I own 3 Keurig coffee Kcup machines and plan to purchase the soda machine as soon as it is available.
But anyhow, back to the buyout. Coke owns more than 13% of GMCR and a buyout even at a 20-25 premium is a coin in the bucket for Coke. They know that long term, GMCR has tons of growth and value. I predict it happens this year for sure. Why heck, it could happen next week. It's whenever they decide to pull the trigger.

To prove even a bit more reason to believe that Coke (KO) will buyout Keurig (GMCR) , is that the new Keurig Cold Soda Machine will be called Keurig "KOLD" get it? "KO= Coke Symbol.
Let's see... First of all if you are comparing the companies I would by far have to put AMGN at the top, Gilead second and Celgene third but just because you have CELG on the list. I would far prefer BIIB or even a Teva.
As far as a stock comparison, I would say that Gilead has a larger range to trade in in a short period of time, meaning that you can make big swing trades up and down where as with AMGN you will probably have to hold for longer period of time and the swings will be less aggressive or volatile.
For this reason, I hold both AMGN and GILD. But I also watch the ranges and GILD is almost at the 52 week high which if it does not breech, GILD could tumble all the way back down to 100. AMGN is pretty safe no matter what happens. The pipeline of AMGN is amazing and getting better each and every quarter. Gilead has a boat load of cash which could help the share price if they deploy it on aggressive buybacks.
If AMGN has any positive news come out, it could bust out and head north to the high.
During the last 2 weeks we have been trading in a range of 153-157. Volume has been anemic except for Monday which I believe we traded around 6 million shares just slightly above the average. We need something to get us out of this range and breakout to the highs. Biotechs and BigPharma is doing great right now but it seems as if AMGN is slacking behind.
Does anyone know what type of Stock Buy Back program AMGN has in place? Because that would surely help.
They are way up. Either someone thinks we pop $5-$7 points next week or could be head fake. Either way the range the last 2 weeks has been a traders dream. So lets see if it continues.
For the 3 people who gave me thumbs down, you can all put that thumb in a dark, moist and tight place which I am certain you can figure out.
So they let this come up to almost $105 and make everyone think it had bottomed out. Then the last 30 minutes start taking a little air out of it. And then at around 5pm they decide to put out an article on slowness of the machines. Wow, calculated? Ya think? What a scam I tell you. Keurig could have put this out during the trading session but ofcourse they wait until the close so we cant trade. And why would management actually say this when they already talked about this on the CC. This is not new news. This was already known. They really want to bring this down big time. Tomorrow we either drop to $90 or bounce back to $103. Which way will it be?
Trading at 12 P/E. Compare that to the likes of BIIB, CELG AMGN and even ABBV. If we only traded at twice the current P/E we would be at a share price of $220 and it would still be the cheapest of that bunch. Incredible that people can't see that.
