All you regular posters who support this stock have one thing in common. All of you think the CEO is incompetent and does not care that you shareholders are getting hosed. Question is, how do you expect to recover the losses you have owning this stock. Your CEO is going no where, and his management incompetence will continue. We are 5 weeks away from Christmas. Santa Claus is not going to magically turn this company around. It will be next year what it has been for the last few years, a stock going no where and inside management getting rewarded for malperformance.
You should be thankful there is a yahoo board. You use this board to vent your frustrations and dislikes of the actions of your CEO. Your posting temporarily moderates your anxieties and stabilizes your blood pressure and other vital signs. I have a better suggestion to permanently eliminate all of your negative feelings about this company......sell every share you own and move on. You will sleep better, and with the funds you get from your sale, if wisely invested, you may even make a little money.
Now that earnings out Wednesday, the trolls post on this board. Usually there are only a few posts a day, and it is not unusual that the wfm message board have only a few posts a week. It is the nature of the beast that dramatic price changes in any stock attracts the trolls, misinformed, misguided and addicted posters. Where were all you " experts" last year, pre-split? Where were you when the market found a bottom in 2009 and stock prices subsequently soared. The professional investor has enjoyed historically high profits the past 5 years, and you peasants are trolling the boards posting when a stock has a dramatic price increase or decrease.
Amazing. One owner of a dog stock, lwlg , trying to convince the owners of a pig stock, gig, the merits of their company. The conversations goes like this.....bow wow, bow wow, oink, oink,oink. Who are you guys who are in love with these junk companies? The market booming, people have made millions during the past 5 years, and you guys addicted to these two loser stocks.
I will state one thing, you are a consistent pumper of this stock. Your judgement appears wrong. You and others are aware that your CEO is lining his pockets with preferred stock transactions and the stockholders continue to get zilch. How you can be a raging bull if the CEO does not care two shots about you guys is perplexing.
1720 in Paris now. Concierge knows I am flying to Paris tomorrow, he joke about phone. I told him I will check it out. No private plane, just simple first class tickets for my wife and I. She is dressing now for wedding so figured I would post on board. No private plane, just simple first class tickets. Continue your task on throne, peasant. I trust you are not offended by my message.
Typical asinine reply to someone who questions the contents of your post. Why are you always aggressive when anyone disagrees with you. Your negative comments toward people are a serious character flaw. You address your vitriol to someone you don't know. Why strike out and use derogatory language. Your hostility could affect your well being and cause you severe problems. This board is only a diversion, nothing more.
Suggestion for you and others. Do not react to every penny movement of this stock. I understand all of you are frustrated with your holdings in this company. The slightest news on the company or an insignificant movement of the price gets you guys over reacting. This is a thinly traded stock and you should realize that trends are not made in days or weeks. Avi and his cohorts are able to support the price action to their benefit. Realize that a 100,000 purchase is only $140,000. The banditos support stock, hope outside interest buys some shares, and then they carefully sell off some of their holdings at a profit. Insider transactions do not necessarily have to be reported because Avi and the gang have outside interests buying and selling the shares. You fellows know you are dealing with unscrupulous people, expect the worse.
Quite a few wierd ducks post on this board. Perhaps performance of this pig stock has pushed them over the edge. Profitinthecan now posting as willaminagschaefer. It may be that the inventor of the universe turns out to be the only sane one of you supporters of this junk company.
In San Jose, minority of population is white. Majority is either Asian and Hispanic. You are no doubt one of the followers of the boy in the White House;you are an under achiever, dependent on entitlements, and bitter toward the successful and affluent. Don't waste your time posting your nonsense on this board, get on the "affordable care" web site and try to sign up for your insurance. Your man in Washington is inept, and history will show he was one of the least effective Presidents in history.
Based on today's closing price, wfm has a capitalization of 24 billion dollars. Trader joes is a private company, no stock swap possible. They would have to pay $24b in cash to buy wfm. You amateur investors, or what ever you are, need lesson in economics and investments 101. Wfm bought wild oats a few years ago, a competitor. If they want to, they can buy trader joes. Most large private companies can be enticed to selling to a public company because then their investment becomes liquid. Think before you post and make a fool of yourself!
Hey shorty, wfm up 50% in 6 months. You are an amateur small time player, do you know more than pros that bought stock in May, before split and have paper profits of mega millions. Also be aware that as wfm continues to grow revenue and profits, they may decide to acquire privately owned Trader Joes. How do you think the purchase of eliminating some of their competition may effect stock price?
It's okay to post on this board occasionally, perhaps a few times a week. If you post 5,10,15 or more times a day, every day, you have very serious issues. Too many chronics have lost focus with the real world. This board has become the center of their universe. These posters need to re-examine their lives and realize they have a problem. This board should be treated as a temporary diversion from real life. If one is a chronic, constant posting is an addiction!
Hey shorty, getting burnt? Average store volume will be about $35,000,000 next year. Your cap analysis is worthless! Wfm is a growth company with expanding revenue and profits. They are in the midst of an expansion of their units. Their brand loyalty is similar to the Starbucks customers. This company is one of the most popular stocks of institutional investors. This stock will be much higher than $63 a share in 2-3 years. Stay short, and continue to lose your money. Short it on the way up, and you will be busted.
There are a few chronics that post new topics and the same few posters always respond to these topics. Rarely, if ever, do other posters reply to message. I wonder why this occurs.
Several of you company boosters post about the product base that this company has and how eventually it will turn this company around. You guys are amateur investors making a judgement call. The major catalyst for moving stocks come from professional investors that have the expertise and capital to move a company's stock price. I know of no pros interested in buying this stock. If there were knowledge that new product introductions would result in a dramatic turn of events, rest assured big money would be committing their capital. There is no accumulation being carried out by any big hitters. The word on the street is that this company is taboo because of it's failures to deliver increasing revenue streams and failure to turn a profit. Professionals also do not like a company that has their insiders lining their pockets and treating the minority shareholders as garbage.
