I'm with you... I know it can be stressful, but, one interesting data point is that SODA averages 20pct gains in January.... Even if there's a blemish with earnings, it would be hard to conceive them taking this lower then 45.. But, I'm prepared to lose half my investment which is growing daily... I'm screwed if it hits 28.
The article was sound(as always) but one should realize its tenor is consistent with Seth's trade and hold(long) philosophy. Let it be noted that he has the right as do all longs to do this and I don't hold this kind of practice against anyone. I just use the downward trends to reduce my cost basis as I do not have the advantage of having bought in the 30's.
Luckily, I can afford to keep buying but there are retail investors who can't and for them it's unfortunate that a stock with such stellar metrics and a future where the sky truly is the limit, must watch their investment drop to levels that in my opinion do not reflect its true value.
That said, it was a fair article.
But if money can be made based on the immaterial - it makes anyone question, whether to buy this stock.
IMO earnings will always prevail so I'll keep buying.
And I will consider myself a pure long as I have never hedged my position.
Again, I am not critiscizing other longs who do, I'm merely pointing out the distinction.
Best of luck to all, especially Seth who continues to make himself available to the masses... and merry xmas.
They can drive it down all they please - if the offer does not have a 3 followed by a b it aint happening. Birnbaum knowd what he has and he is not going to give it away on rebate. Just ask wmt who covers the rebate.
brick and mortar was down yoy.... however soda continues to grow.... just take the Barclays number as the lownumber. anyone with any self discipline looking to make money is crazy not to buy soda at these levels. historically its never been under 18 price to earnings. just look at the forward number take the average number over 3 years and then calculate your discount. just like sodas growth its double digits
Soda likely has other distributors lined up in Brazil on the syrup side. Cott, if I understand what you're saying, is just the u.s as far as i know.
Bed Bath and Beyond - by far the most impressive displays I have seen in any establishment. There were hundreds of boxes everywhere. They were the first thing you saw walking in and the last thing you saw checking out. Unfortunatly I could not gage sales as everything was stocked to the max. When I asked a service rep how they were selling he became paranoid and claimed I was the second person that day who asked him. He would not divulge. Lines were excessive. Saw two people with machines waiting to check out.
Best Buy - Best layout I have ever seen at a best buy. Soda seemed to be selling somewhat. Watched two customers linger and stare as if mulling over the purchase. One grabbed a machine the other did not.
Not sure what party they're crashing but the more they love the stock the more it goes down. The same goes the other way or should.
Congrats on staying so long... regardless of pull back. I wish you and all RAD longs continued success. I did well in this stock and a few others this year. Check out SODA. It's the only stock i've been more excited about this year then rad.
btw, what happened with cgr? Did they go under?
Two thumbs down - makes me want to work on myself. I need help obviously I'm sorry I'm so displeasing. please stop ratimg me poorly. it just makes me want to buy more stock as we already know.
