    Hey Atty - Thank you for the kind words; right back at you my friend. The board has not been the same since you left. Your knowledge of the market and of SODA has been replaced by an excess of hate, name-calling, and banality. Enjoy your retirement; stay well and prosperous. - Jim

    Rogersbank - I would buy some GMCR put options for protection. I think this is a stock that is going to take a very hard tumble before the new year. Just my humble opinion for whatever it's worth. GLTA.

    Isd - Israelis and Palestinians are of the same race. Same race, different religions. Get a clue. Your seeing Israelis as a different race is a testament to your anti-semeticism.

    The uncivilized countries hate Israel and the US for the same reasons: they are both pluralistic democracies that respect the rights of women and minorities, and they both cherish the futures of their children. They also hate that our pluralistic democracies allow their citizens to become prosperous. The nihilistic hatred of life by the uncivilized countries dooms their own children to depravation and poverty.

    Isd - If you had researched this list of alleged grievances, you would have seen that they are baseless. In fact, the uncivilized countries that you champion are eggregious transgressors of the UN Charter and the Geneva Conventions.

    Take the very first item on your list. Article 2 (of Chapter 1), Paragraph 4 of the UN Charter states that all members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state. Every military action Israel has engaged in has been in defense of it's territorial integrity and political independence. From the wars in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973, right up until the current situation, Israel has been protecting itself and it's land just as any other nation would when attacked.

    You also conveniently ignore the other principles listed in Article 2. Paragraph 1 states that the UN is based on the equal sovereignty of its members; the uncivilized countries don't recognize Israel's right to exist. Paragraph 3 states that members shall settle their international disputes by peaceful means in a peaceful and just manner; the Palestinians have fired 9,000 rockets at Israel in the last 8 years. Article 1, Paragraph 3 states that members shall promote respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; the men in the uncivilized countries can't do this with their own families! They shoot in the head their daughters who want to learn how to read, stone women who seek equal treatment to men, and kill fellow Muslims who belong to a different part of Islam.

    As for Apartheid, Israel's citizenry includes Muslims and Palestinians; they can vote, hold office, own property. Also, Israelis and Palestinians are the same race. There is no Apartheid.

    I can do this all day, but I'll spare the board. Things wont change until the uncivilized countries put their children before their hatred.

    What I wrote is the simple and unassailable truth. Your use of ad hominem attacks is recognized by all as your acknowledgment of that truth. If you had any confidence in your claims, you would have no need to stoop to name-calling.

    You can call me names all you like, and as you do the uncivilized countries that you champion shoot little girls in the head for learning to read, stone their own wives, sisters, and daughters in some twisted sense of honor, and strap bombs to their children. And the irony of it all is, if you gave them the chance they'd behead you and drag your body through the streets because you are not (and can never be) one of them. Shalom from a rocked -ribbed Republican and stone-age Catholic.

    I didn't mention occupation and apartheid because neither is applciacble to Israel. If you understood what apartheid actually was you would know how deeply offensive it is to black South Africans for you to equate their plight with the self-inflicted plight of the Palestinians. You cannot ignore history without looking foolish and childish.

    I have no problem investing in SODA, or any other Israeli company. Israel, like every other civilized country, seeks to live in peace with its neighbors and the other nations of the world. It will, like every other civilized country, take all necessary steps to protect its citizens from an unprovoked attack. That is what is happpening now.

    The attacks by the Palestinian Authority on Israel violate three rules of the Geneva Conventions: (i) they target civilians, (ii) they use civilians as shields, and (iii) they are launched by soldiers dressed as civilians. These actions are universal understood by all civilized nations as acts of war and as war crimes. Israel, on the other hand, conducts itself in a manner above and beyond the requirements of the Geneva Conventions and unprecedented in the history of warfare: they warn civilians to leave an area before they bomb their intended target, and will refrain from bombing a target if they think the civilian casualties will be too high.

    Like all civilized countries, Israel wants its citizens to be free to live their lives as they choose, to enjoy the fruits of their labor, and to raise their children in a peaceful and safe environment. Israel is not gripped by the nihilism that allows parents to strap bombs to their own children in an effort to kill those who pray to a different God, or to kill fellow Muslims if they belong to a different branch of Islam.

    These uncivilized countries are in love with death, and use Islam to justify killing Muslims and non-Muslims alike. They shoot little girls in the head because they want to learn how to read. They believe it is honorable to bury their wives, daughters, and sisters up to their waists in the ground and stone them to death. The nihilism gripping these uncivilized countries blinds them to the humanity of their own flesh and blood. They say they want to annihilate Israel and the US, but they really want to annihilate everyone, including themselves.

    Kevin - You ask why don't I go "challenge the Muslim Hatred against the Jewish People." The answer, like you, is simple: because I'm too busy challenging YOUR "Hatred against the Jewish People." I have called you out on your anti-semiticism remarks because you post them on this board. I didn't call out "Muslim Hatred against the Jewish People" because there are no postings on the board that reflect that. In fact, in the 2+ years that I have been on this on this board, I have never seen anyone who has identified themselves as a Muslim and posted the kind of anti-semtic remarks that you have spewed. Nor have I seen anyone post any anti-muslim messages in that time. If I saw either of these types of postings, I'd call them out just as I have called you out for your bigoted posts.

    I have challenged others who have posted anti-semitic remarks, as well as those who try to bully other posters into silence, and I will continue to do so. As Edmund Burke famously said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." BTW, I am a rock-ribbed Republican and a stone-age Catholic; calling me a liberal is like calling you a tolerant person. And of the two of us, only you tried to hide your words by pulling your original posting off the board. That's what makes you the only coward out of the two of us. GLTA (except cowardly Kevin the bigot).

    Kevin - You're free to engage in anti-semitic speech, and I am free to tell you your anti-semitic speech is ugly and offensive. You're free to take down your anti-semitic posting after I call you out on it, and I'm free to call you a coward for not standing by your ugly and offensive words. There is, however, one thing you cannnot do: you can't remove the the stain of bigotry from your identity on all the Yahoo boards. Everyone will dismiss whatever you have to say as the rantings of a hate-filled, cowardly bigot. The only reason someone would marginalize themselves in the way that you have is that their hatred is deep and sincere. Good luck with that.

    Kevin B - There is nothing wrong with using the word "jew," just as there is nothing wrong with using the words "christian" and "muslim." But what you did was use anti-semiticism to attack SODA. Your removing your posting after I called you out on it's hateful message shows you know it was wrong. That's referred to as consciousness of guilt. You removed your posting for the same reason a criminal flees the scene of the crime and later denies the crime when captured: because you know what you did was wrong and you are trying to escape the consequences of your actions.

    I don't mind your criticism of SODA, but your bigotry offends all thinking, decent people. It doesn't stop offending just because you removed the posting from the board, but it does clearly show that you don't have the courage to stand by your ugly words. GLTA (again, except cowardly bigots).

    Agzand - I agree. The CO2 issue is the Achille's heel of GMCR's Cold machine. Not only can't it provide sufficient carbonation for cola, they are missing the boat on customization. When speaking of the introduction of SBUX's Fizzio sodas, Howard Schultz said that customization was the future of carbonated beverages. GLTA.

    Kevin B - Do the numbers in your user ID reflect your area code (212) and the last three digits of your zip code (012)? If so, you must find NYC an uncomfortable place to live. If you have self-identified yourself this way (this is a very common number combination for user IDs), you should consider changing it. First, you are giving too much personal information away; identity thieves around the world can do untold harm with just a little more info than is contained in your handle. Second, you have also self-identified as a hate-filled anti-semite. The annonymity of the internet is what makes cowardly bigotry possible, and you compromise it when you tell the world what part of NYC you live in. Without anonymity, you and your ilk would quiver in silence, because courage does not serve hate. GLTA (except, of course, cowardly bigots).

    GMCR hits new record High (128.04)

    I hear you RobHenry. GMCR has been goosing it's stox price every chance it gets with dividend increases, the KO partnership, the SBUX partnership before that, etc. These events have all been announced with quarterly results in what has been a successful effort to distract investors from the truth revealed in numbers: that GMCR's business is in decline, and it's efforts to stem the receding tide have repeatedly failed. IMHO, I think GMCR will be signinicantly lower by the time it announces it's results for Q1 (the fourth quarter of 2014) which will reflect the holiday sales. I wouldn't be surprised if it gave back the KO premium and tested $80, but that's based on a very pessimistic view of GMCR that many do not share. Everyone should do their own due dilligence and make up their own minds. GLTA.

    Stockman - KO spent $15 billion on it's 16% interest in GMCR. It is not about to to give PEP a free ride on it's at-home carbonation platform. I think it would be more likely (though highly improbable) that KO would buy 16% interest in SODA just to frustrate PEP's efforts to get it's own at-home platform. They don't refer the competition between KO and PEP as the "cola wars" for nothing. By the way, I'm with David Einhorn when it comes to GMCR: this stox is going to stumble and then fall very hard in the not too distant future. I would shorting GMCR right here. GLTA.

    gentlemanjim_98 gentlemanjim_98 May 19, 2014 4:59 PM Flag

    Ad Hominem Tony - Do really think the CEO of PEP, the second largest soft-drink company and one of the 100 biggest public companies in the world (93rd on Forbes 2013 list), doesn't think carbonated drinks matter that much? Do you really think the carbonation level of Indra Nooyi's favorite soft drink is a relevant qualification for her being CEO of PEP? Do you think the future direction of PEP is determined by the CEO's personal soft-drink preference?

    Of course you don't, not after myself and others have shown you how laughably ridiculous those assertions are. But you have a dilemma: you can't defend your ridiculous assertions without looking like an idiot, and you can't agree that they are ridiculous without admitting they are idiotic. So what do you do? You choose is to make ad hominem attacks ("obsessive compulsive neurotic" and "you're nuts") againts those that have exposed your ridiculous assertions as idiotic, not realizing that the attacks themselves are an admission that your assertions are indefensible.

    All that said, I know I speak for most posters when I tell you that it's not safe for you to invest your family's money based on Indra Nooyi's favorite soft drink. Please, for the sake of your family's financial well being, do not personally invest your money; put your money in a mutual fund. No joke, you do not have the intellectual skill set to be an individual investor. GLTA.

    Ad Hominem Tony - In one post you write that because the favorite drink of PEP's CEO from a commercial soda fountain is a non-carbonated drink, you think there is a "possibility" that she "doesn't concern herself with carbonation as much we might hope she does." In a following post, this possibility has become a reality, with you declaring as fact that PEP's CEO doesn't think carbonated drinks matter that much. And the basis of this riduclous statement is the ridiculous assertion that all tobacco CEOs smoke.

    Well, you're right that this is simultaneously funny and not funny (or more aptly put, sad). It's funny (hysterical, actually) because what you write is so absurd that a child would mock your logic: do the CEOs of Mattel and Hasbro prefer playing with toys to reading a book? Do the CEOs of Hershey and Nestle prefer chocolate to all other foods? It's sad (tragic, actually) that you are making investment decisions based on your idiotic assumptions, which you eventually count as facts. I'm sure your family will long regert your throwing your retirement away on investments based on what a CEO's favorite soft drink is.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that you are only posing as an imbecile to get a rise out if the board, but I have a knawing fear that you actually believe everything you write. If you are not posing, please, for the sake of your wife and son, put your money in a mutual fund. You have no business making investment decisions. Even more than you need a therapists, you need to stop investing in the stock market. Don't lose everything and prove me right; get out now while you still can. GLTA.

    Ad Hominem Tony - Once again, you make the point that you can neither apply nor recognize simple logic. I noted that you were in your sixties (which is a fact, not an attack) to establish that you are older than Seth, who YOU you attacked because of his youth. Honestly, how have you survived six decades without of a speck of logical thinking?

    Answer me these two questions if you can: Why are you invested in SODA if you think so little of the company, the product, the management, its marketing, its future prospects, and the people who appreciate the stock's potential? If you're not invested in SODA, why on Earth do you spend so much time and energy posting on a board dedicated to a stock you don't own?
