    this should have popped 30% instead dropping

    I once held 100 call contracts heading into Disney Earnings
    Watched my investment burn up the next morning after earnings
    Watched it break even two days after earnings and sold at break even
    Watched it soar the week after earnings
    I missed out on a fortune but at least I didn't lose a lot
    Lesson Learned: Disney's stock price is heavily manipulated by the talking heads on TV but once they get in it becomes all systems go. The numbers speak for themselves; this was Disney's best quarter and ESPN isn't the anchor the talking heads made it out to be. This is still a long term buy and hold.

    It's too bad that they don't have Twitter TV, I would have loved to used it during the Super Bowl
    Hopefully someone implements before the summer Olympic
    I'm not giving up on this one but I'm done buying low
    Now waiting for anything to turn this dog around
    Go Twitter!!!

    Interactive Sports with Twitter and live streaming sports on the same Big Screen TV
    Bringing Twitter into millions of homes with simply the addition of an app to many
    of the hundreds of million set top boxes located in homes throughout the US and
    even more when you look worldwide

    When I look at the charts, I like the long term trend
    When I look at the peg, I like the long term trend
    When I look at the growth, I like the long term trend
    When I look at the discount, I like the current price
    When I look at the cash, I like the amount
    When I look at the quarterly earnings growth, I like what I see

    Please explain why investors feel the need to see this stock!
    I just don't see it...
    Thanks

    The Apple TV product has the potential to be the first truly interactive television product because it has a powerful multi core processor and software that puts it right up there with the original iPhone 6 Plus… IMHO, they should look at interesting ways to make Apple's TV much more interactive and one of those ways would be for apps to collaborate. What do I mean by this? For example, if an XFinitity or Tivo app were running on the Apple TV they could share content information with other apps then one of those apps could use given information to increase the user experience.

    My favorite example is a home user watching the Super Bowl on their big screen TV through an app on the Apple TV… The user opens up a Twitter window at the bottom of the TV screen and the content app (provider of the Super Bowl stream) informs the Twitter App (or any other app) that the Super Bowl is currently displayed on the user’s screen. In this case, the Twitter app could use the shared information provided by the viewer to automatically tags so the viewer can peek in on an associate Twitter steam and generate tweets without having to generate the associated tags.

    Collaborative Interactive Television could be the wave of the future and Apple has the perfect platform to make it possible.

    Think smarter :)

    Thanks, I truly hope that the new team makes Twiter TV one of their top priorities and doesn't invest too much time in large tweets. If things are done quickly they could introduce it in the Super Bowl. If not, then they might have it ready in time for the Summer Olympics. Regardless, it would be a huge boost to Twitter so I hope it happens as soon as possible.

    After looking at thread on options it became pretty clear that today's price is supported by many who are trying to keep the price below $18. That changes next week so the price should have the opportunity to rise with the market. It's very interesting to look at the March 18 Calls for 24 and above as there are so many of them that it's clear there are some very big bets being placed here. The bets placed on Jan 20 2017 $35 and above are also rather enormous and bets on Jan 19 2018 $18 above showed a large purchase today. If you have the ability to buy shares and sell calls against them you may be able to get a guaranteed 35% between now and January 2018... Of course, most gamblers are betting it will go much higher between now and then so you may want to just hold tight (like I'm doing)... I'm not really into gambling (like the options buyers) but it is interesting to watch their moves.

    Thanks, I would love to have this on my big screen in time for next month's Super Bowl. The Apple TV may have the best software platform for this but it would probably take too long to get approved by their system (unless Apple collaborated and built the shell). I also own a Tivo Romaio and I'm pretty sure they are 100% in charge of their software so it would be great if they collaborated with Twitter and built this into their system (Imagine how many viewers could participate!). Regardless, I think it is an idea whose time has come and the technology exists to make it possible in 2016... Collaborative Interactive Television on the big screen will be a game changer for Twitter and I'm doing my best to help make others aware of that.

    Imagine a TV with American Idol (or any live telecast) showing on the top 90% of the screen and a related twitter feed showing in the bottom 10%. Imagine being able to tweet about that live telecast and having it show up in an associated Twitter stream without having to enter the tags. Collaborative Interactive Television will make this possible in the future and I wouldn't be surprised to see it show up on the Apple TV first.

    Now imagine changing channels and having the Twitter feed automatically switch to show Tweets related to the new channel.

    This will be the wave of the future and it will bring tweeting into many a new home.

    You heard it here first!

    Now make it so $$$$$$$$$$$

    How to fix Twitter

    Could you imagine how active Twitter would be if they had this up and going by the next Olympics? World Cup? Stanley Cup? Super Bowl? Etc.?

    It is the best time ever for Interactive Collaborative television and both Apple and Google have built platform that make it possible. Now someone just needs to create the split window shell and the define how collaboration works.

    By inviting all television viewers to the game...

    It is finally time for interactive collaborative television. Apple added the power for both apps and multitasking to their Apple Television. Now all someone needs to do is create a shell that can host live content and twitter on the same screen. Think about it, a Tivo App could provide content (guide) information to a Twitter App then the Twitter app could automatically generate tags so anyone viewing anything on Tivo could tweet about it in a small window at the bottom of their TV screen. The same thing would work for almost any app including Xfinity's app, the HBO app, any of the sports apps and any of the movie apps (Hulu, Amazon, Netflixs)...

    The ability to view live content on your TV screen while Twitting on the same screen is all Twitter needs to pull in many of the non Twitter users (Imagine how active the American Ideal stream would be).

    To enter text into the Twitter window on an Apple TV one could either use their phone or the microphone button not the Apple TV remote.... Of course the exact same technology could be built for Android phones and Android platforms... And, of course, sharing a screen between a video app and the Twitter app already work on any computer but the apps don't cooperate and automatically generate tags to make Tweeting easier.

    The same days good news is released. It's almost as if they have a whole series of trash pieces just waiting to release the minute any time Disney releases positive press.

    The box office numbers, the world box office numbers, the long lines at the parks, the amazing toy sales, the many reasons to hold, hold, hold and the press says sell.

    Keep in mind, many analysts are doing the opposite of what they tell you so when they say sell, sell, sell... It's probably time to look at holding or buying more.

    LOL, a thumbs down from someone who doesn't acknowledge that merchandise sales could double box office sales over the next several years... You apparently don't know the mouse house!!!

    More than many Pixar films made in their first weekend

    Tons of merchandise flying off the shelves just in time for Christmas

    Parks building out all new star wars rides

    Few analysts want to talk about the overall potential of a Disney Blockbuster... Here's a hint, over a billion dollars worth of Mickey Mouse merchandise sells nearly every year (yes that's a lot of cheese)...

    CNBC is blaming the drop in Zoe's to location... I guess if you work in an oil producing area you are less likely to eat out right now... Personally I think Zoe's has a location problem as they still haven't gone far enough West to tap in one of the best markets in the US... Tech savvy valley folks love to eat healthy and many eat out :)

    FYI, Chipotle, Blaze Pizza, Wild Wings, Panera, The Counter, Panda Express, PF Changs, etc. etc... All doing fine in the West

    A few details regarding ZOES

    Another company to compare Zoe's against would be Blaze Pizza... They started growing at roughly the same time as Zoe's and have a nice map of locations that are doing well.

  • beprepared4infinityandbeyond beprepared4infinityandbeyond Nov 6, 2015 3:06 PM Flag

    It would be interesting to compare Zoe’s growth plans to Panera & Chipotle; both chains have won over the hearts of consumers and investors. I like the Zoe’s concept but it wouldn’t surprise me to see someone duplicate and leapfrog the company here (in the West) if they are going to ignore the market for several years. We have a lot of entrepreneurs and it would be pretty easy for one to come up with a catchy name and improve on the concept. I realize that Krispy Kreme won the East before going after the West so it’s possible that Zoe’s approach is a winner. Then again, I think Panera & Chipotle are better businesses to emulate.

    IMHO, they should hire some folks away from Chipotle, release a secondary to get funds for growth, and build out both the East and the West.

    One of the reasons that Activision gave for buying King is because it's headquarters are outside of the United States so they were able to use some of their non repatriated funds to purchase the company. I believe that Glu is a great purchase, and in fact I own some shares, but it is a domestic company and therefore would require using US dollars to purchase. The only company that I can think of that fits the same shoe box as King is GameLoft.
