incorrect. I am not a shill ( not paid by anyone, nor am I affiliated by any corporate or private entity. More Appropriately I am a troll if you will, or an old fart who on most days has free time to make light of the CONSISTANT dreaming/wishing/ posters of rumors that never seem to pan out
..in other words.."the emperor has no clothes!" So easy to understand that the story of soda could be told to a child along with the story of "The boy who cried WOLF". And along with a quote of PT Barnum. Seven weeks to go and then some substantive news releases , after which the rumors will fly again.
of course on some days the share price will retreat...but overall M will equal or more likely outperform other national retailers with the possible exception of Costco thru the fall/winter season
over the next 7 weeks..it will be revealed that...just as over the recent 3 months...that sales and profits in the US have been below expectations and that based on the marketing trends over the last few quarters NOTHING. will have happened in the merger or buyout news. NOTHING! And of course, there will be MORE rumors that things will improve in the 4th quarter. More "waiting for Godot"
Sober enough for me to ask you to answer the questions I posed. The questions can be easily thought about and answered. One more question, how likely are the current rumors and speculation to result in a nothing situation when reviewed 7 weeks from now?
In a retailers assortment of product categories, just have much profitable growth does merchanding soda offer a national retailer? What natural business or investment publications have run a story about the marketing sucess of sodastram? Did Fortune, Kiplinger's, The Economist, Money, or The Wall Street Journal?
When the shares of Soda pop upward, is that the result of verified reports of marketing success with increased profits for both Sodastream and a specific retailer? Or are the spikes in share price a result of rumors? Have many times in the last few years have those spikes seen sharp reversals in share price because the rumors were shown to be false? For a prudent investor is the situation history of Sodasteam worth putting investment dollars into?
I live in the northeast corridor, You know very well that the cities you mentioned are not super zips. Macy's units in Chestnut Hill,,Danbury, West Farms, Huntington, Manhasset, White Plains, 34th st, Roosevelt Field, Paramus, Willowbrook, Short Hills, Monmouth, Cherry Hill, Wilmington, King Of Prussia, Annapolis , Montgomery Mall, Chevy Chase, Tyson's Corner, Ballston, Fair Oaks, and Short Pump are doing VERY VERY well. Numerous others are making plan. Certainly there are weak spots, the units you mentioned have new been weak not or just years but decades. The rents there are quite low, so Macy's has keep them open. Please comment about the situations with a since of KNOWLEDGE about the subject at hand.
Which demographic base has the better ability to buy fall/winter clothing? The families in the $20 to $40k household income or in the $45 to $120k ? What customer base will hit the clothing aisles in greater numbers..those in small towns and cities..or those in upscale suburban zip codes and large metro areas? What retailer has dominant position in the upper middle to top tier customers? The late fall quarterly reports will answer that.
and Macy's is ready with the merchandise to turn inventory into PROFITS. The Fall/Winter season is on the rise. And little bit by little bit , so will the share price.
as with previous rumors...NOTHING will happen this week , or next week..or next month.
The financial media is already running stories that "during the summer season Soda sales in the US dropped by double digits." It is hard enough to follow US based and focused consumer stocks. So, just why is there any enthusiasm for a foreign company trying to merchandise in the US, especially when it's record has been far below expectations over the last 2 years? The October statement will not change that perception.
Yes, if you google to words Sodastream CNBC buyout...news stories DO APPEAR. And they do say exactly what poster have said. A buyout would appear imminent.. Looking at premarket trading Sodastream is dramatically UP this morning. YES. Obviously many have clicked on to search rumors this morning. But a close examination of the news stories and looking at the byline date..those stories go back to Spring of this year. Google search can bring up news stories that are months if not YEARS AGO, so unless they are read closely, one can be easily fooled. So here we go again. RUMORS, sharp prices swings...but in the end..nothing will happen... but what an EXCELLENT opportunity for day traders!
Neither article gave any news on an increase in sales in the USA, and more importantly in bottom line growth achievements that (looked certain) are ahead in the upcoming qtr report. Every qtr report is important, but if SODA turns in another report of weakness in the USA, the share price will be viewed in a very negative way. SODA must come out with a turnaround story of sales success in the USA. Until that positive news comes forward the share price will continue to drift lower...or worse.
some whipsaw trading early today. Some rough volitily ahead...still a long way off till the quarterly release. But, apparently a lot of contradicting trends visible to insiders causing the tremors on the stock chart.
