    T will be in that range at year-end.

    I'm not a Yahoo fan but you might read the footnotes and find out that Yahoo does not produce its own info..It gets it from third parties. In the case of "estimates" they are from Thomson Financial which produces the highly regarded First Call service.

    From Pulse Beverage Sep 30, 2013 10-Q Report

    During Q3-2013, gross revenues, … were $1,102,000…, and net sales were $1,009,000 after slotting fees and other promotional allowances …. We expect gross sales, net sales and slotting fees and promotional allowances to increase due to large chain and convenience store listings secured for Natural Cabana Lemonade to date and expected to secure during the remainder of 2013 and the expansion of PULSE.

    We expect the remainder of 2013 revenues for both products to increase significantly due to timing of shipments into our distribution system and the increased number of regional and national chain and convenience store listings secured for Natural Cabana Lemonade and the rollout of PULSE into many of the same stores. …

    I'm waiting for 15 cents to load up. Then, PLSB would be a real speculation. Right now, it's just pie-in-the sky.

    The real question

    Tommy-. Believe it or not, except for an occassional "flyer", I'm usually in very soiid stable stocks, but make portfolio returns that beat the S&P 500 by several points but with about half the risk (volatility)

    I think your strategy should be a function of your work status. If you are still able to work to earn money then you can recover your losses from your work income.and rebuild your portfolio But, if your retired, you don't have that opportunity.

    My "flyers" have to make sense. PLSB may work out, but it is priced as if it has already achieved its goals, pushed by known pump and dumpers and management.

    Good luck to you.

    BTW -- In case you missed this--

    "Fox News has fired paid contributor and market analyst Tobin Smith for receiving compensation to promote the stock of Petrosonic Energy, a violation of network policy. According to a Media Matters review, Smith's company, NBT Equities Research, also received compensation for promoting numerous other companies through his website and conservative newsletters, and used his Fox News credentials to hawk volatile stocks to conservatives."

    From Seeking Alpha, 2/11/13, by Vineet Dutta

    “There are two analysts that cover the stock and both are bullish. Goldman Small Cap Research initiated Pulse Beverage last week noting that Pulse is founded and led by the team that made Clearly Canadian Beverage a monster success, which was later acquired. The report suggests that this stock is Clearly Canadian II, will run to $4, and ultimately be acquired for between $8-10. Goldman Small Cap Research further said that it thinks that sales for Pulse leap from $2 million in 2012 to $30 million in 2013.”

    “NBT Equities Research is the other firm that covers the stock and said that due to the extremely rapid sales and distribution growth of Pulse's Cabana brand lemonades and their one million annual case sales rate achieved, industry valuation metrics for the Cabana franchise alone indicates a near-term $150 million+ valuation or $3.50+ per share outstanding for PLSB stock. The firm forecasts at least another $50 million in brand value developing for the Pulse franchise as well by the end of 2013.”

    Sales of $30 million in 2013? -- Not a word since.

  • comffret by comffret Feb 27, 2014 2:56 PM Flag

    There have been no independent research reports on PLSB. PLSB paid several firms that published "reports" on its outlook - (Goldman, NBT and Northland Securities.) As paid writers, these "analysts" got their forecasts directly from and approved by PLSB management.
    For 2013, the most recent forecasts were published by Northland on 27 July 2013. Management told them that full year 2013 revenues would be $5.300 million. It seems that they may have expected continual big revenue jumps over the $1.331 million June quarter. Yet, for the nine months through 30 September, PLSB's revenues totalled only $3.129 million. (The third quarter's revenues declined from the second quarter's peak.)
    That means that to meet managements 2013 forecast, PLSB's 4th quarter revenues had to be at least $2.071 million. (The December quarter is not usually big in this businees.)
    Management also forecast revenues of $21.9 million for 2014 and $38.1 million for 2015.
    It could be argued that these estimates might justify PLSB's market value.
    Do you still agree with them?

    Since you think two March filings represent "constant", that would explain your manic rants.

  • ghart3509 said:
    "The March reporting has been a constant with this company, they are not late but very much as expected."
    "Some people post on the boards without engaging their brain to do some basic research."

    PLSB's actual 10-K filing dates were:
    1/29/10, 1/14/11, 3/16/12/ 3/29/13.

    Management managed to offend everybody by forgetting who their customers are (were) and then deserting the expected replacements..

    "The rate of HIV increased 22% among gay males ages 13 to 24 from 2008 to 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. Teens and young adults accounted for more than a quarter of the 47,500 new infections recorded in 2010, the latest year for which statistics are available."

    "One major reason: They have no knowledge of the AIDS death toll of the 1980s and '90s, and don't regard it as a dangerous disease."
