"Whole Harvest Foods products, which including frying oils, pan sprays and liquid butter alternatives are manufactured at its vegetable oil refinery and packaging facility in Warsaw, North Carolina, and its packaging plant in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company has about 35 employees at its two locations who will become a part of the Bunge team."
What the? You mean because Bunge picked up a 35 employee company in Warsaw, North Carolina you think that means Bunge has given up hope on SZYM? Bunge, already a multi-billion dollar global leader in food oils operating in some 40 countries before SZYM and before Whole Harvest, but because it picked up a 35 person mouse of a company in Warsaw North Carolina you think that was the straw that broke the camel's back demonstrating Bunge has now given up on SZYM?
That's funny. No really, that's so incredibly stupid it's funny.
They can't make the oil for less than 7000MT.
Where are you getting this from?
If they went out to big with this news and the website was overwhelmed they would be criticized for not being able to deliver
Why would they not be able to deliver?
SZYM just went commercial with the healthiest food oil in the history of the the world, right? Where's the 50 press releases? Why isn't this on National News? Where's the contract with McDonalds where McDonalds is going to switch over to Thrive because McDonalds wants to make McDonalds food a health stop for its consumers? If McDonalds doesn't want to be out front on this then Burger King or Jack in the Box would. How difficult can it be when your product is 30% better in every way than any product in the marketplace? Why isn't this product in GNC and Whole Foods?
Why in the world does SZYM have a one product website, that I had to learn about on this lowly message board, where they are going to sell a couple dozen bottles a week? And one one agreement with a 15 store retailer? I mean what the hell is a Gelsons? I've never heard of it. I'm sure 99% of America has never heard of it. I mean are you kidding me? I could do better than that pitching Thrive on my own city.
How could this possibly be so low key? So hidden?
If Elon Musk had this product, it would be the promised land, the Model 3, and everyone in the world would be clamoring to get there hands on as many bottles of this stuff as they could.
It's called marketing Wolfson. You can't do it with a flatline personality. You can't do it in the manner you run your quarterly meetings stammering and obfuscating your way a conference call.
Get a clue for Christ's sake. This product should be on the nightly news across America right now. It's the first food technological break through of this century.
Website was ok. It's not easy to do a website when you only have one product. I was disappointed they didn't have a PayPal link. That's pretty elementary to me.
Also, thrive doesn't seem to be a company but rather just a pending product trademark name. (And I like the name.) The website seems a little deceptive in who exactly is making this product.
Is SZYM taking this to market themselves just like their skin cream? If so, I don't like it. SZYM should be selling this stuff to the largest product makers in the world rather than doing the David v. Goliath thing. Products are all about marketing and marketing power and SZYM isn't even in the game, isn't even on the radar of the big food makers as far as competition.
My order is 1037.
Got to support the company. This oil sounds amazing. Can't wait to try it. When it catches on it will change the food industry forever.
Not me. I've never been here before. I just watched the video of the new vehicle and just had to comment.
How is this thing an SUV? It looks like a small 4 door sedan.
How is this 130k vehicle any more than a toy for a few rich people?
Who wants a car with gullwing doors? What a pain in the #$%$! How are these things even going to open in low ceiling garage? And they open so slowly, how is that not going to get old? I have a mini-van with sliding doors that I'd put up against these gullwing doors any day. Sliding rear doors are amazing.
But you will not be able to stop the electric transition.
It's a 2% of the market. Since it hasn't started nothing to stop.
Model X launch, the best SUV ever, by a wide margin,
130k car. Non-factor.
Autopilot, highway autonomous,
In 20 years maybe.
PowerWall and PowerPack large scale launch,
Money loser. Guarantee.
Gigafactory one starts production,
Let's pick this up in 3 years when there's an actual production plant.
Model 3 reservation, the number will blow your mind,
Funny. 3 years away at a minimum.
You get the drift. Lots of sales pitching, no product for the masses in sight.
I think they are a huge mistake. They don't add any functional benefit so why add them?
And calling this thing an SUV is a joke. It's a 4 door sedan with gullwing doors. Get real.
This is a $130,000 car. It's a non-factor. A play toy for a few of the rich.
That Tesla can get so much attention and maintain such a high market cap over a non-factor product is astounding.
Huh? They tried to sell at $8 two years ago and nobody would touch it. Now, it's 2 years later and gutted. It's probably worth $5. And in 2 more years it'll be worth $3. Then $2.
ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Oh, my stomach hurts. Please stop!
having trouble thinking? I posted Yahoo's stated financials. Look at it again. Off that 3b in cash, there is 1.55b in company debt. That leaves 1.45b net. It is what it is. And the debt is accruing at 10% interest while the cash is earning 1% interest.
Deal with reality.
Are you sure?
Yahoo says differently
Total Cash (mrq): 2.96B
Total Cash Per Share (mrq): 5.60
Total Debt (mrq): 1.55B
Perhaps there is debt other than the 1.25b loan? Looks like net cash is closer to 1.4b/523m=2.7 a share.
It took 2 years but what I've always maintained is coming true. BBRY is a 1 billion dollar company.
It was amazing how BBRY would jump every time it mentioned a new subject. The bag holders would just pump it through the roof.
Get ready for $6 after earnings eventually heading to $2.
"The" oil? Aren't there several? And aren't there several flours?
I would think GMO flour would be just as in demand as GMO oil because of the unique qualities you could design into the flour--super high protein for example or a certain taste or a particular texture or mixing quality etc.
In my mind, they should be able to do both GMO and non-GMO for different products which would be one of the great things about growing product so quickly and in containers.
And I'm thinking the vast majority of people don't care about GMO as so much of what we eat today is already GMO and it's not hurting those products. Non GMO market is out there and it's just another, although small, opportunity rather than a barrier.
Only the oils are GMO.
What? How could the oils be GMO and not the flour? That makes no sense.
you will meet outrageous resistance from the anti GMO crowd going this route
Where are they then? SZYM is in the food business right now with product on the shelf and I'm not hearing anything from them.
