But how could one PARTICIPANT category be saturated, you might ask? The rate of sale for sparkling water makers borders on those achieved through bread makers and ice cream makers, which is why only certain retailers carry them and a select few vendors only manufacture them. For a non-essential consumer good, the rate of sale is pretty low on a weekly/door basis. With this being factually understood, retailers can't very well dedicate more space for additional like-products that sell very slowly. Primo Water Corp. (NASDAQ:PRMW), Cuisinart, Esio, Hamilton Beach and even KitchenAid found this out first hand as all have been or will be eliminated from the marketplace. KitchenAid, with its co-branded SodaStream technology-driven product could not even manufacture enough sales for its sparkling water maker to stay on retailer shelves.
You really are that stupid to interpret what he said completely the wrong way. He was saying that with one participant, the market is saturated because retailers won't put other products on the shelf for the category. Which is true and which is proven. One participant makes this a saturated vendor market not a saturated consumer market you putz!! To wake up and know that you are who you are every morning and still have the courage to face the world. I can't even imagine what that must be like.
Nice short bcartertrade. I covered my short at $97 already from $127. I do hope it sees your price target and it just might.
CO2 is right on cusp of going negative idiot!
amd, U.S. will grow when Sodastream sells more flavors, more machines and more Co2. amd made a horrible mistake when he bought shares in the mid $30s because he thought soda stream made their money from Co2, even though the company's earnings report show very differently. His mistakes have resulted in a severely depressed portfolio which also has AMD in it. Long term investing hasn't helped him in AMD. Let's all pray for him that it does this time. AMDtripledigits quotes Warren Buffet, whose KO investment has gone nowhere, but criticizes the major soft drink companies. AMD triple digits is as foolish as foolish gets and stupid has done him in because that is what stupid does. His end! One more thing, "a extremely" should be "an extremely". Moron!
How do you sell Co2? by selling machines you dullard!! only 38% of SodaStream earnings come from Co2 the rest comes from machines, bottles and flavors. The only thing you did was prove how stupid you are acromidget.
The guy is obviously envious of Seth and delusional. He reminds me of Teddy. That fool and amdtriples have Funny Farm tattooed on heads.
I'll take credit for one on each post today from and, iggi and epb. Not one of you guys have issued one significant independent thought or any relevant information. All I can see is uselessness posts. So credit me for one thumb down and take the feedback so hopefully you'll have more informative posts in the future. Please don't be offended, cuz thats not my aim. But seriously look at the posts. Anybody with any real info??
I'm gonna go with ebb got served a healthy dose of "evidenced" real logic in how to create an argument and follow through with the "evidence". That, plus the guy got caught lying and tried to back out of it. "In In and? You never seem to quit making yourself look like an #$%$ do you amd? Waste of time AMD, well then why do you always read his posts? Always and always and always and always. You're going to lose focus of the CO2 that way. I made myself laugh at that one.
Stop Atty, he has to read every "SETH" post to convince himself he's not clueless. He isn't doing a good job which is why he continues to read and follow him every which way.
Pathetic was the question, not my answer which gave you very much needed advice. "MIX that will only be in bars / restaurants". So either you can't read or you don't know how to comprehend. Nowhere did it say only in bars/restuarants but you did a good job of misunderstanding what was said. And the article is only going off a hunch, not any concrete information.
And I know you said "may" even though they never said anything on that during the conference call. So you're asking a question with a faulty premise. Critique yourself before others buddy.
jholmes you need to play closer attention. There are several news articles about it so read em. Who said the SodaStream Mix will only be in bars and restaurants? Since when did they say they were partnering with a coffee brand? They never announced any such thing on their conference call.
My Target's had a bunch of flavors on clearance and they had the Jet on clearance before I saw the new set up. Where the flavors and the jet used to be now they have a beer tap system thing.
