Pull your copy of "The boy who cried WOLF". Read it.read it aloud and explain how people react to rumors that are not true.
Do you understand what a communist society involves? Do you understand the transformation that Germany underwent under the Brown shirts? To compare the changes in the US culture and political structure to The Soviet Union in the period of 1918 to 1990 or to Germany under Hitler is rediculous. You really need to read some history. How could you have possibly missed understanding the difference in social and economic structures that were taught in high school? You might not like President Obama personally or his policies, but your take on the political structure is completely from a twisted and uninformed understanding of economics.
Fall sales will not be strong. As LULU's customer is an intelligent consumer who among other things does HER OWN LAUNDRY, the folding and sorting of laundry has been keenly aware of the construction details of the lulu garments and has found similar items at Target, and Kohl's. Educated women have no problem sharing their product knowledge with friends and members of their gym. We are in the era of "it's smart to be thrifty"
The razor blade concept has recently changed. Razor blade and updated version of razor cartridge unit sales have dropped dramatically. Today's current lifestyle climate is for men under 40 is to have an unshaven appearance. Also surveys of the usage of blades shows the average blade user replaces the blade once a month and not after 3 to 5 shaves as planned by the vendors. A knowledgable user has found that by regularly running the blade/ cartridge under a strong stream of water and keeping the blade ( blades) clear of soap buildup, that the blade/cartridge can be used for many months. In sodas case, customer comments regularly show the high usage of freshly squeezed juices or syrups from sources other than sodastream.
a similar situation from what I observed at a Costco store here in northern Virginia 3 years ago. The customer traffic passed the demonstrator with very few customers stopping to sample and a few days later with the inventory levels virtually untouched. Last week, my initial impression was that the $59.99 3 day sale book at Macy's would bring customer demand. That was NOT the case. Macy's Dulles town center location started with 12 soda kits and 36 flavorings. As of today, there are 7 kits left and 20 flavorings on the shelf. To say there was no demand would be untrue. But "strong demand" NO. Strong demand for a major retailer is dozens if not hundreds. Sodastream is NOT in that category. So, My conclusion. is that it is highly unlikely that a buyer for Soda will appear. If a buyout were to occur, I feel the buyout price would be UNDER $40.
but you can believe that a suitor will demand a thorough review of the books. The 2nd quarter report will need to be confirmed. Based on what I have seen, IMHO the price of a buyout would occur LESS than $40.
IMHO Carbonated beverages are not a growth category. Reading corporate quarterly reports for a while now, the comments from KO and PEP among the leaders, have consistantly reported that " soda sales are down." A walk through the aisles of any retail store beverage section will reveal the explosion of flatwaters both plain and flavored. That SODA is only in the carbonated segment for me is the big drawback in any ability to increase sales.
Many posters on here could call you "other names" ' but most on here conduct their opinions without flinging untrue statements on various boards within minutes and with no record of posting factual information or posting viable comments to the postings of others.
and more around many stock boards. And using the unmodest handle of an investment god?
The street seeks to see profit growth that meets or beats expectations every quarter. Corporations that EXCEED in successive quarters have STRONG price growth. Miss one and it flattens...MISS TWO and the share price DROPS. This is no news to regular posters here; but to the new dreamers and posters hoping for a buyout , this and any quarter is critical.
a review of posted headlines-opinions from Mötley Fool over the last week will NOT show any negative commentary about Macy's. Please reference where and what date you used for that statement. thanks
That small space at Walmart is what many of us have been saying. You pointed out that most (of sodas) sales are international. That is true. but what most investors of SODA will give the most attention are for the gains in sales and profits from the USA. If results in the USA are not strong, then SODA will stay flat until the quarter which the US sales put a big PLUS onto the bottom line.
