Because Jane is all mouth and no money. She's been dreaming of getting rich quick by lying about fly-by-night PLSB. "Pumping" can be okay if it has an element of truth. But her several years of outright lying is despicable.
With only $3.1 million sales, Yates says he is a leader in the beverage industry? Where are the men in the white coats when they are needed?:
Mr. Yates continued, "... We have also spent a great deal of time to wrap up the development and re-formatting of our highly anticipated Pulse® Heart and Body Health functional beverages which are due to be launched very soon. With the progress we are making, Pulse is quickly emerging as a leader in the beverage industry. We are confident in the delivery and execution of our product launch, continued sales and marketing strategies and look forward to communicating more progress on this with our shareholders."
There is some speculation by a PLSB super-pumper on the Ihub board that Yates may be resigning. Do you think that would be a good or bad idea? I think Ron Kendrick has always been the real "power-behind-the-throne". So, maybe he'll have to come out and stand "front-and-center'.
In an IRA, the full dividend (R-O-C included) really is your yield.
In a taxable account, the R-O-C portion reduces your cost basis and becomes a capital gain when you sell. In that case, you would adjust your yield for the deferred tax. But, if DNP's price falls below your cost basis, then you would have no capital gain.
Now look at what you've gone and done with your nastiness! PLSB down 9.52%. You need to pay attention to good advice. So far, you've been Yates' kiss of death.
They weren't beverage businesses but, I actually ran 4 very successful businesses from start-up to employing as many as 200 people. One key was honesty; another was courtesy. Those are attributes you may consider looking into.
It is amazing that you think that more unsubstantiated rants and personal invective are helpful to PLSB's stock when it is obvious to anyone who takes the trouble to check that you have been continually wrong for years.
Because of the absence of adequate finances to support much revenue growth, some PLSB fans are hoping some corporate giant will come along with a buyout offer.
The problem is that PLSB doesn't have much to sell.
Because they don't advertise, PLSB hasn't established a brand image and they have no meaningful endorsements to support the notion that PLSB's intangibles are worth even the $1,162,300 they claim.
Pulse production technology is over 12 years old and by now, easily replicated.
If patents are of any value, and that's a big "if", they haven't much longer to run.
The gross value of their property and equipment is only $476,841, or $323,649 after depreciation.
So, why buy PLSB when, if you want to be in their business, you can just start your own?
Jones' price to sales ratio is !.39.
PLSB's price to sales ratio is 3.32.
It seems like PLSB has some more to drop, don't you think?

"This time next year at least 1.50, now thats a Gift"
Wow! we can make big bucks in just one month.
Thanks for the hot tip Jane.
Gruber said, most Americans are too dumb to know what is going on before their very eyes.
PLSB CEO Yates has been PERMANENTLY BANNED from being a fiduciary, warned by the FDA aboout FALSE HEALTH CLAIMS and BANKRUPTED a predecessor company that he ran.
Yet, there are still those who flock to give this guy their money every day.
Do they not understand that "fiduciary" involves handling other peoples money?
Almost every idiot and her brother know that individual quarterly results are affected by many factors such as seasonality, weather, shipping dates, billing dates, etc. Serious financial analysis requires a longer time span such as a full year or trailing 12 months. Sorry I gave you only the 9 months figures but PLSB's trailing 12 months, but their trailing 12 months wouldn't improve the results bewcause the 4th quarter of 2013 was lower than that of 2012..
Further, most of you were expecting a truly big "hot summer" quarter, not the measly 2.85% net sales gain it showed.
Also, re comparison to MNST; MNST's distributor network is mature while PLSB's is growing rapidly, yet PLSB's sales were nearly stagnant while MNST's net sales grew.7.7% for the same quarter.
Also, weren't both companies subject to the same weather factors?
Didn't your beloved Yates also know that "It takes time to grow a company"?
If he did, why did he publsih predictions of huge and rapid revenue gains to attract investors?
If not, why do you trust a man with your money that doesn't know half as much as you do?
