to the ongoing situation that SODA has been going nowhere with the North American market and results elsewhere are not growing as hoped.
IMO Soda will not go bankrupt, but will continue to be a minor player in the overall beverage market which has seen numerous sub-segments by brand expansion and distribution.
Thus keeping the trading price in the $13 to $17 "meh range"
superduper: you "believe over" "time W will rise as Wayfair grows" "and reports profits"
2 things : The home furnishings business is very competitive, but seasoned retailers will tell you that customers want to see, feel, and touch the product to determine the quality. Your biggest and strongest competition is from HOME GOODS on the mid price segment and POTTERY BARN and RESTORATION HARDWARE with upper income customers who work with designers and put a fully coordinated room ahead of price.
Reputation in the marketplace takes time to develop. Current searches on YELP or GOOGLE searches of "customer complaints- Wayfair" do not give a solid performance rating picture.
A review of my comments by talking to insiders in the home furnishings sector should cause you to temper your enthusiasm.
that "thanks" will soon into "tanks" when it will be increasingly evident is not going to be very profitable and find it almost impossible to make consective quarters of profit growth.
reminder in the period of the 2014 Super Bowl soda shares were trading in the $44 - $5O range
Soda's profit performance has been so weak that it cannot purchase the most meager amount of national advertising. Two years have gone by, and Soda has gone nowhere, except down over that period, and yet so many continue to believe that it can bring your holdings to a strong return.
My comments certainly cannot change the stocks performance, but certainly the performance of Soda's management and product placement in the north American market should bring you to the reality of the situation.
The trading price is now $20 BELOW your dream price.
The street continues to take the position of WANTING to see a series of the postings of quarterly PROFITS.
yes, I post regularly, not constantly. Soda drops regularly, though not constantly. But, overall the situation is Meh, with regular trading below the $13.55 - $13.85 range
as I have posting for while.. You bought more W shares at your own risk
THE QUESTION REMAINS: When will Wayfair make a PROFIT ?
Enough of the expansion of the business. Does the addition of office space in Maine add to profits or does it add to expenses? ( which lower the bottom line )
Revision to the prediction list:
At the end of 2016, many W holders will be shocked that most of this list DID NOT HAPPEN !
W shows a continous posting of rising profits. (*) Speculators jumped on the W bandwagon hoping to making huge gains and some did. Those without seeking an understanding of the business are now hoping to SELL at a huge profit to those more under informed than them. Buy more at your own risk.
(*) It is all a question of IF and WHEN
and so it with any investment.
This person wants to be President, then ACT PRESIDENTIAL.
Can you fire a Senator that delays your proposed legislation? Do you decide not to give a State of the Nation address because your results are behind expectations? Do you insult constituants or foreign leaders because their position is contrary. Diplomacy is just that...acting and conducting with diplomatic courtesy.
He does not want to face M Kelly; then what about A Merkal, V Putin, or the general public? (*)He respects virtually no one.
Trump is a spoiled BULLY. Trump is no T Roosevelt, No F Roosevelt, NO Reagan, Nor is he in any way what a democracy should have as a leader.
( * ) Note: That is a recent rally in Burlington, Vermont that Trump edited and restricted attendees to only those who voiced strong support. Even those who indentified as " not sure" or wanting to learn more, were EXCLUDED.
