Weather. One hundred and nineteen mentions of weather. I am holidaying in NC today. Local merchant told me this has been their worse winter in some time, too much snow. Still not adding here, holding. I see this as a near term bottom, but I need to see more to add. Hopefully good news is coming soon.
These idiots don't even have $5,000.00 let alone $290,000.00 TO MAKE A TRADES LIKE THIS. Just another buffoon who doesn't know how to turn off the all caps key.
Wahoo!! I remember you standing strong when this was $2 and all the battles with the shorts. A lot of what you used to post kept me from taking profit and moving on. Instead I was building my position. This is fun now! I see a lot of new names, but I hope a bunch of us from the old days are still hanging. :)
I am not buying any PBPB for a while. I bought shares in four companies today and sold my position in another. I also handed a check to a contractor for repairs to some of my rental property. The check was much more than I have invested in PBPB.
I think I have a little different approach to investing than these "broken longs" you mention. My PBPB cost basis is much higher than I would like, but my loss is very small $$$. I don't marry one stock. A smart long has options. He can buy more as the stock slides. He can wait until a bottom is established. He can sell and take a loss. Or he can hold. Stocks run up and down all the time.
It's not unusual for a stock to go from 25 to 40 to 18 and then go to 60. I have bought 25, then sold at 18, only to regret seeing the stock trading for 60. I would like to make money on every trade, but I do not. Investing takes one thing most retails do not have, patience.
So, PBPB has disappointed me Feb. 21, 2014. The story is not over and I am one long who is not broken. I have decided to hold. I also reserve the right to change my mind.
I try never to get married to one stock. This is one of my smaller investments and it stays that way. I look to put a little money to work, maybe hit one out of the park. The board is kind of fun, so I hang out. But PBPB is spoiling the party.
I don't like how this is playing out. I had a 19.50 order, but cancelled. PBPB may become what it's touted to become, but so far some of the questions being poised just are not being answered. Can they bring in business in the evenings for one. Another problem is the close proximity of their sites. This can be easily corrected going forward, but I want to see more. The restaurant business is tricky. I am backing off and just allowing this to play out. I have three issues equally weighted, but will not add here. This one may end up being sold and reinvested in the other two.
I looked out my window and saw cashback_7 dancing on my front lawn. He had on a little red suit with gold embroidery. On his head he wore a pillbox hat with a tassel hanging off. He was playing an old accordion, dancing in circles shouting "who am champion now?" "who am champion now?" over and over. It was horrible. )*)
The weather has been a Real factor for this quarter, especially where PBPB's units ar located.. Also, they have restaurants in the Wash/DC area that were additionally effected by the gov shutdown. Let's look at the numbers during the next year. The new units will be in operation and we will see how they are received in these new markets. Buying solar stocks was a tricky proposition 12-18 months ago. But those who could look past a few weeks have been well rewarded.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
This is the launching off point. All dips from here are a gift. PBPB is promising 25-35 percent growth. Conservative estimates are around 25%. I can live with that. If we get a significant correction 15%+, I will double to sell in the early 30's and walk with a position of mostly house money. Either way, I sell half. Then it's back to the trenches. Pay no attention to the noise.
I am sad. You seem to be such a young man to suffer from APD. I tried to make an even handed post, but you I see are beyond any help I can give. :(
Here is your last banana, enjoy. )*)
A forum for individuals to discuss and share information about investing in a particular company. One poster would present information they thought relevant to the feasibility of investing in the company. Someone else would present their findings. It was a communal process. If someone heard a bad number was coming, they told others about it. The same was done with good news.
I found a small company using an investment process I was using called Uniphase. I did not understand what their business was, but one guy used to post who really understood the business. He told us this was going to be huge and not to sell. This little company went from trading 40,000 shares a day to trading 40,000,000 per day. It became a 16 bagger for me.
Today Yahoo has become a #$%$ contest with arrogant posts say "I bought 5,000 share of this it's going to the moon" "I sold this pig" I, I, I. And those are the decent readable boards that are left. It's even worse with boards like WMT, F or AAPL that are political wastelands where it's impossible to find anything useful.
So, hopefully nobody gets bent out of shape over any of this content. I consider it mostly amusement. )*)
I look for high quality, good tasting food and good service. Also, I look for prices high enough to keep out the riffraff. There is something about looking at a "plumber crack" that just doesn't do it for me.
Caesar, enough with the groupie thing. Here's a couple of bananas. )*) )*) peace.
luv, you have to consider what's posting on here. To them there is no difference in Safeway and Whole Foods. Groceries is groceries. The whole concept of this new restaurant breed is past there limited, got to make a buck to pay the rent mentality. These people eat at Subway. They do not shop at Fresh Market. These are Dollar Store, looking for a bargain, don't care about the shopping experience, monkeys. They have learned how not to use the ALL CAP BUTTON, but don't confuse them with intelligent life. )*)
This is the type move you like to see. Up on higher volume pre-earnings, maybe someone has heard about the number. PBPB is still in it's infancy with room to expand 10 times it's present size easily. Really early in it's development. I still like it @33 by year's end. )')
Caesar, that is where you error. I know my place in the market. You and some of the other monkeys seem to be delusional. Have a banana!! )')
I am supposed to believe this. I seriously doubt you even have 150K. I have 1.2% of my net worth invested in this group which included PBPB. I imagine that 1.2% in dollars is probably half the amount you even have in the market. So, brag on. Boast. Whatever floats you and Caesar's boats.
I recommend you acquire a taste for jam sandwiches. If you continue to short PBPB, all you will be able to afford is two slices of bread jammed together.
