Who cares about ZEVE. Read his posts, the guy cries all the time about how he lost on investments. So either he's sees an opportunity here and hopes to get on board it cheap or he's paid to bash it. What we need is clarification from the company what the plan here is. Name change and direction. I keep adding on weakness. I'm confident that the insiders will not let it dip below .50 and so far that looks correct.
In this industry to grow you have to advertise. Look, a day doesn't go by where we don't see five Subway, Mickey D's, Poppey's and other restaurant commercials. Just read a piece on Poppey's turn around. So Pizza Inn on a smaller scale can turn around that business. P5 Dallas is taking the next step there by advertising and I'm sure same store sales will increase because of it. I find it odd that so many articles hit at once about PI. If you read the replies to the seeking Alpha article they were our competitors shareholders. If they can take the steam out of the share price, they know that they can put a dent in growth. A fresh 5 minute pie is a threat.
It's easy to get discouraged. If we have the right guy running this, then I trust he has bigger plans that take time to implement. If this gets cheaper, I suggest that you load up. These 150 franchises will eventually open up and that revenue will be realized. Just not as fast as we expected. The next big growth area will be outside the U.S..
Spandex you were the idiot selling this at $8.50 level. So short away. All we are sure of about you, is that you missed a $3.50 run here. That you are going down with the ship on CDTI and that's the facts. You have so many posts that contradict your bragging. But if you want to show us your trades, just copy and paste and redact the stuff that is personal information. The gulf boom's and spandex's had nothing concrete to offer this board. You were both wrong about this investment and you left so much on the table.
I tried to educate you here.
Two out of three here make sense. The business model here has some kinks to iron out. The closing of that partnership, they will write off. If you're holding this on Thursday, you will not be a happy camper on Friday. Spandex has given back his pretend 125k shares over $300K. You can't have it both ways...spandex. No wonder he's grumpy.
I'm with you Darrell. Stupid bashers. I hate people like that. How high do you think this goes?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I was pleasantly surprised by the move. Breaking $12 and trading at the high for the day was a very positive move. I believe that when we look at the institutional ownership, that more large funds started piling in.
How they hanging? We were worried about you. Though maybe you were on board that 777. Seems like you grew a pair now that a little softness has hit bios.
Could a buyout be contingent on the military contract? We all know they need more money then they got here to keep the doors open. If they are in talks, there would be some limits on how much dilution would be allowed. I'm sure they know that they cannot go to the well again anytime soon.
I'm lazy does anyone have an educated guess of how many shares are now floating around? Thanks.
Good job. Three pieces all at once here. Kind of fishy. I have a call into the company about these articles.
Boy spandex you sound mad. You sell WG prematurely and brag and then you cry over here. Apparently you need a drink. Have a good weekend. Earning late next week. The one semi positive news, at least they didn't schedule the earning news, for after the markets close on Friday. Be happy with the little things.
Start off well. ESPN have a bracket 15-1. All week I had a feeling about Dayton upset. Just didn't go with it on that bracket. The Billion dollar bracket....13-3. Too conservative on it.
Everyone has an agenda. I'm not anti pvct. I'm anti pump and dump. I have many reservations that this drug should get a free ride. I see a management who took liberties with options and Pr's.
You have a strong opinion that you cannot lose here. I only went long because of one simple issue, just maybe the science needed to be explained. I current am looking at that angle and profiting from it.
How can I be humble about this? I so far have been very accurate here on the direction. My non trader instincts.
Maybe they are going private. Just not at $6 or higher. What would you do if you were in there shoes? Pay a premium or go slow, take it out a low price and sell off the pzza inn parts and then grow it?
(1) Are you a trader? Unless a person is a market manipulating short (which I do *not* believe you are), there is no problem with being a trader.
No I'm not a trader. I examine things from inside out, top down, bottom up and inside out. I believe there's a chance that investors are being taken here. That's what motivates me. I would have left long ago, if it weren't for the thugs. Immature pumpers will large egos and multiple ids. Have you see a single them take my simple test? No they cannot take my test and pass.
3) Just as importantly, why do you bring up previous successful trades you've made in other companies (your 500% gain before bailing on a company that went broke)? Is it to impress or establish trading credibility?
In reflection, I should have left out the percentage gain and just stated I got out clean. No one likes a bragger on these boards. I respect that point. Will be more careful in the future. Sometimes the attacks, make you step outside your character and you become someone you don't like. I at least have the good sense to see that. The point I wanted to make about NVLT, was the similar facts, the stock was trading around .46 and I bought into it, because the CEO of my other investment was named to their board. The stock ran up on hype to $3 and I was one stared more times then I can count. Back then one star messages were hidden because of the 2 star requirement with default setting with yahoo. That message board was smart and had an answer for everything. They didn't like me...because I poked holes in their beliefs. I figure that's what theses boards should do. Everyday I learn a new lesson in investing.
I understand you all have it figured out, till that hammer drops. I ask questions and I dig. I have never stated to anyone to sell, all I asked was for them to open their eyes. It always seems after losing money, you wish someone would have asked the right question. Just turn over every stone.
I see two problems. One being the cost to open a store. The second being the number of franchises you have to open. The mom and pop owner are locked out. They opened one store this year. That speaks volumes. This maybe a great idea, but implementation is what wins the race. Theses articles are hinting at a flaw. The CEO maybe over playing his hand.
Chipolte wasn't a public company then. There growing pains took time. We don't have that luxury. The company needs to step up and delivery something real.
