I swear, this guy made me laugh when he walked onto Cramer's set. He's way over his head. He's so young and wet behind the ears, he reminded me of a 17-year old high school kid on his first college interview. He didn't even know to sit down in the chair. Cramer was like, "Okay, you can stop shaking my hand now son. Please be seated". Hahahaha!! And you guys trust this boy to run a publicly traded company? Yeah, good luck with that.
It's funny how everybody on this message board ignored the Wendy's press release on 10/16/13, stating that their pretzel offerings will be discontinued in November. So keep hiding your heads in the sand and pray they come up with another popular fad, real fast, to replace the pretzel burger. The chances are not good. And by the way, who is the idiot in management that thought it would be a good idea to kill the golden goose before it reaches menopause? Not too bright. But then again, nobody ever said this management team was very bright. Lucky, perhaps. But not bright.
Seriously, he's got to do something about that haircut. I coudn't stop laughing long enough to hear what he was saying. What was he saying anyway? LOL!
That's nice. Now you're calling Wendy's customers "clueless"? Real classy, pal. Go to Wendy's Facebook page and read the comments on the pretzel chicken. A lot of customers feel jipped. It's not just me. The comments got so bad that Wendy's had to respond. They basically replied that they goofed. And that if we want, we can order bacon on it as long as we are willing to pay extra. Too late. We know when we're being conned.
The point is that people who are used to ordereing the pretzel cheeseburtger are used to getting the real bacon because it comes automaticaly with that sandwich. So if they try the pretzel chicken sandwich next, they will feel jipped when they find it doesn't come with real bacon. I am telling you this through first-hand experience. I feel jipped, and I'm sure everybody else does too. Tell me, who do you think is ordering the pretzel chicken sandwich? I'll tell you, it is people who liked the pretzel cheeseburger. I don't know who the idiot was at Wendy's corporate who thought it was a good idea to make the loyal Wendy's customer feel JIPPED, and all just to save the cost of a couple pieces of bacon. BAD MOVE! Very shortsighted.
"...Like all classic love stories, our pretzel bun will soon come to an end. Wendy's is encouraging consumers to say their proper goodbyes with their pretzel love affairs by enjoying Wendy's limited-time pretzel offerings before they leave restaurants in November. Pretzel lovers everywhere can still share their love on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #PretzelLoveStories."
Translation: Sell this stock now! It's all downhill next year. The comps will be too tough. Mark this post.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Are you deaf? I did try one. The homestyle chicken pretzel sandwich. And they don't put bacon on it. They only put bacon on the pretzel cheeseburger, not the pretzel chicken sandwich. So to hide the fact that they withhold the bacon on the pretzel chicken, they use some kind of bacon-flavored cheese whiz on the sandwich. That's why I said the sandwich is a fraud. They make it taste like bacon is on it, but they don't use real bacon.
The company filed their defintiive proxy statement with the SEC on Monday, and they inserted a new paragraph which verifies that they are seeking NASDAQ uplisitng in conjunction with the reverse split. This is good news. The following paragraph was included in the finalized proxy statement:
"...A primary purpose for increasing the market price of our common stock is to increase the likelihood of our common stock becoming eligible for listing on the The Nasdaq Stock Market or other securities exchange, which we believe would improve the marketability and liquidity of our common stock for our stockholders."
I hope some of you took my advice and sold at the top. You could have saved yourselves a bundle already. But it's not too late to sell. In fact, the biggest pain is yet to come. The choice is yours. You can either ignore my advice a second time and watch the stock continue to tank, or you can save what's left of your dwindling profits and sell immediately. Choose wisely.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I'm not lying, go order a homestyle chicken pretzel sandwich, and you'll see what I'm talking about.
So I tried the pretzel chicken sandwich, and I thought it came with bacon. But I looked closer and it didn't have any bacon on it. Yet it had a strong bacon flavor to it. So I looked closer, and noticed that they put some kind of yellow cheese whiz on top, and it must have had bacon flavoring added to it. I can't believe Wendy's would stoop so low, that they would substitute bacon-flavored cheese whiz for real bacon! I am so disappointed, I am never going to eat at Wendy's ever again! They must take their customers for suckers.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Flight to quality? Keep dreaming. This is just shorts covering into general market weakness. The only buying done on Tuesday was done by shorts, covering to lock in profts. They will re-short at higher prices. That's how it's done. Watch and learn. When the DOW is up +150, this stock will be down 2%.
That was fast. Add rafaeliaxlkkressin to the spammer list. Along with lovewqlugira, estrellitasfdunbar, and martinaunzmontes.
Quite a strange tactic to gain attention. Let's see if they copy and paste this message. "ATTENTION, ALL TALON MESSAGE BOARD READERS, ignore lovewqlugira, estrellitasfdunbar, and martinaunzmontes. They are all spammers."
How come nobody wants to talk about that? Are you scared?
What, you mean the double top and the negative MACD crossover, not to mention the impending bearish head and shoulders pattern? Yeah, thing of beauty alright. For the bears. Hahaha!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Hey Porkchop, you still here? Go eat a pretzel bun or something. That's all you're good for.
I can tell you what's going on here. You and lovewqlugira are spammers who are trying to promote your lame website by exploiting TALN's recent rise. Now get lost.
Is 3D Printing Road-Ready?
By Dan Carney
When we talk about speed with regards to the auto industry, we're usually talking about zero-to-60 acceleration. But what about zero-to-market? That's where 3D Printing is revolutionizing the industry: How quickly car companies can design, test, and produce new vehicles.
Think of all the specialized pieces that go into a functioning automobile—then imagine trying to find those parts for car models that don't yet exist. Increasingly, big-name manufacturers like GM and Jaguar Land Rover are using 3D Printing whenever they need those specialized parts in a hurry. The technology rapidly reduces the time needed to build customized parts used in aerodynamic testing and preproduction prototypes, and it's ideal for creating molds used to mass-produce a slew of parts used in actual production vehicles.
This capability has sparked talk of "printed" cars, and while printing your ride might be an interesting demonstration of the technology's maturity, it wouldn't result in a car many people would want to drive. According to Lee Dockstader, vice president of business development for 3D Systems, the ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic body parts that can be printed would likely be non-structural items like fenders, hoods, trunk lids, and door skins, as opposed to frame rails, floor pans, and other components that need to be crash-absorbent. Furthermore, printed cars would be stylistically limited, because printed ABS plastic doesn't allow for distinctive feature details like creases and lines.
Instead, 3D Printing machines, which cost carmakers between $500,000 and $1 million per unit, are mostly used today to make molds for plastic trim, brackets, air intake hoses, and various "under-hood" components—commonly referred to as "black plastics"—when the time comes to mass-produce these parts via traditional injection molding.
