targets missed that leaked to the street? it is tax loss selling on a company that is not profitable, with no growth that is overvalued by any measure of valuation. you could justify 45 cents. but not 90 cents. you could even make a case for 25 cents. so of course it sells off after being traded up to 90 cents on a spike. franly, i would not be worried about targets. provided the market stays intact, you will see higher prices next year. its just tax loss selling on a stock that has not much underlying business momentum.
yes they have a good reputation for quality. CARBONATED WATER, INVERTED CANE SUGAR, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, SODIUM BENZOATE AND POTASSIUM SORBATE (AS PRESERVATIVES), RED 40
wow. look at the list of impressive ingredients. it reeks of quality. seems like they are poised for explosive growth. also walmart has a cutting edge reputation for quality beverages. the children's soda category is ready to bust wide open.
the bid is comprised of what the market makers want you to see. nothing else. it means almost nothing. in fact, it probably means the opposite of you think it means.
what are you even talking about? how could compare hans to jsda? like comparing amzn to jcp because they are both retailers. personally i think you will see higher prices than 43 cents. but the company is trading at 43 cents because the company has terrible products, terrible sales, a terrible history and the only hope for investors is something happens that is not so terrible. i think they can achieve poor. and that is better than terrible.
have to say, you made a good call there. i seldom understand energy stocks. if you told me a fair price for peix was $100, i would say ok. huge revenue and small market cap. always interesting. you can always just play the momo and the chart.
hmm. i included links to sources outside yahoo. maybe that violates their "terms". not wanting people to post researched links. a confirmation as to why i post seldom on yahoo.
yes. they want to expand sales of natural. of course, they are 8 years late to the party. google "natural soda". oops. they want to use their reputation for children's sodas to expand into whole foods, etc... of course that is a fantasy that they are innovating something. they are the 1000th company to think, hey a soda without corn syrup.
this is called not knowing what you are doing. chris reed would not purchase jones today at gunpoint. the companies have NOTHING in common. i mean nothing at all.
jones is a joke at this point selling soda to children based on 1990s marketing. a mess. a complete mess without direction. maybe someone figures it out. it does not appear Cue is that person. she is a good cfo. she appears to have no vision beyond a spreadsheet.
#$%$? reeds does not benefit in the slightest from getting near jones. look. let's understand what jones makes. jones makes soda for children with funny colors and artificial flavors and coloring. think gummi bears, but vastly less popular. they have poor, poor distribution. they have shrinking sales and lose money consistently. Cue got them to lose less money. but they are still a childrens soda company now trying to timidly launch into a "natural" product. however, their are literally hundreds of brands of soda that have already done this without being stuck with a legacy of blue soda. no one at jones can say there is a growing market for bright blue soda with artificial coloring. and stores like whole foods are so gullible that they rush to stock products from companies needing sales expansion from a "natural" soda. there is no strategy here for growth that is meaningful. you think Ms. Cue sucks down Fufuberry soda every day? do her children drink it?
i doubt it. hence the years of losses and negative sales growth.
no law prevents jones from actually innovating. they just do not seem to have guns. ooh that fiat is making me thirsty.
google it. it reads like the opposite of jones. it reads like a description of reeds. reeds is succeeding for all the reasons jones is failing. plus jones makes labels and reeds actually makes a product.
this is aulogy's fantasy. Cue is the accountant. Reed is the brewer. who do you want to buy beverages from? but how many posts over the years vilified CR as the wrong guy to run the company, demanding an accountant come in with mainstream experience? Reed is the right guy to run it and i think he looks at jones and sighs with relief that his bid failed. CR's challenge is proftability and understanding the health market. he doesnt.
how ironic is that? imagine if ELON had actually run the business to be involved in home automation, instead of staring at their feet for the last 10 years. 3.2 billion.
also, it explains the agressive buying over the last couple days. insider information buying ELON knowing the deal was being finalized.
what concerns me is that lonworks seems like a 1990s relic, with google saying here is your IOT software. so elon has nothing to say at CES and it turns out, that is where the entire market appears to be. sad the potential was there. it will be interesting to see the hype that elon is another nest. will give people a great chance to sell who bought along the bottom. and maybe a chance to recoup some losses. wild.
having some expertise in the area, BAXS looks interesting. otiv and spcb are interesting stories, but probably need a rest now. great if you are already in. same philosophy attracted me to REED. jsda fails on all counts, but seemed such a chip shot that only a moron could screw it up. that is of course what exactly happened with the last ceo.
i just pulled up a quote on FWIW. oops. your observation is valid and the stock should test the highs from last year, and probably trade to $1. however, that will be a trade, not an investment in a sound company, unless they change course dramatically. but, it is a pretty decent trade opportunity. you can make money with almost any stock if you are nimble. jones could have been a good investment, which is far better than a trade.
agreed. i will look into baxs some more. there is not a message bd. for it. because yahoo.
and i think i have to buy some bitcoin. ugh.
other than service a legacy software, what does elon do anymore. i am not even sure how they get current revenue. but the company seems to me to have nothing to offer going forward. maybe a lonworks expert can enlighten as to what possible future they have. the meter rollouts have never been good for the company as far as i can see. just temporary revenue blips with attending losses to service the deal. honeywell made a big commitment to lonworks in 2000, then nothing happened. clearly honeywell went in a different direction and elon forgot to innovate. they are years late to the IOT party with a 1990s concept. the players now would probably just laugh off a proprietary offering from elon. no one blogs about lonworks and it never makes news. elon seems like AOL. insights welcome.
jones needs to figure out what business they are in. then the stock can do more than go up a few cents. nothing is more tiresome than commenting on ten cent moves in a penny stock. its all just pushing paper at this point. where is the innovation? it should be happening weekly. they sell soda. its not that hard.
regardless of fundamentals, the chart show a prolonged uptrend, not overbot yet, with some resistance at 60 cents. it should take a couple weeks to break 60 cents if the trend stays sustainable and moderate. a lot of resistance at 80 cents, but that would take a couple 6-8 weeks to happen if it stays on trend. it is a nice chart for longs here, with room to pull back to 51 cents or so without breaking trend.
basehit, no i do not think there will be an earnings surprise. also i think if they do turn a profit it will be on accounting and cost cutting, not organic growth and certainly not profitable growth built on organic demand. they make a product that is sadly anachronistic. they seem to want to pretend they are cool still, without having changed anything from the 90s. i am sure rick springfield thinks he is edgy. i am sure his grandkids think so too.
if this pace of price gains continues, it will be ovebot fast and not sustainable. there was not enough volume to support the price.
chris reed: "we are working on brewing more flavors for national distribution"
j. cue: "we are having an art walk and our theme this year is art photos"
chris reed: "we worked hard on getting non-gmo certification"
j. cue: "omg, look at the pretty lights"
this is pretty astonishing stuff. a national press release to announce an open house to show their bottle photos. if after 18 years of dedication to photography, the company was not losing money and down 97%, then have a gallery in the lobby. dont tell us about your "brand" and the theme of the year being art. the theme of the f--g year should be profit. the business of the company shouldnt be selling artficially colored and flavored soda to children because there is no money in it. the theme of the year is art. analysts love that. give the ceo 2,000,000 shares and have an open house. maybe set up a kiosk on the corner. should help boost local sales. imagine the dozens hundreds of dollars in revenue.
sorry. time for j. cue to become cfo and bring in an entrepreneur.
i guarantee chris reed printed out this "news" release and put it on the wall, thanking karma he didnt buy the company.
