Cuban Coffee in the United States
“Cuban Coffee” is very popular in the United States where there are many Cuban-American residents (about 1.4 million), particularly in Miami and the surrounding areas. “Cuban Coffee” in the United States is a big industry generating more than $100 million annually.
However this is coffee is clearly named for the method used to brew the coffee and not the coffee beans, which are typically Brazil or Columbian coffee beans, and most surely not Cuba coffee beans since that would be illegal and there are severe penalties.
Looks like the US might be lifting sanctions on Cuba. Maybe the buyers here can start buying coffee beans from Cuba soon?
Jay, I think it was you I conversed with that was short earlier. Short %Decrease
-9.30 good call, if you covered. Still low short position IMO. The Vue had to have been a failure for Keurig. I know, I have one. Only BBB or online sells the refills. If successful, maybe the new carafe feature will use more coffee? I can't trade without my cup of coffee in the morning. It's still nice to have good coffee even when I'm loosing money here. IMO Eventually JVA will emit an aroma you get when you open a fresh tin. I'm buying store brand with the daily use cup now, but Christmas is coming. BUY/HOLD

Does anyone else big want to buy on the way down? The Saudis are low cost, but buyers still have to pay to ship it here. Or maybe their offering FOB terms to?

A nice picture of a Lance Christmas Display on my Twitter and SI board.
Well, those who bought from mid Feb till the end of Sept are under water. Wash sales are over till this years end , but not straight tax losses. IMO Coffee reserves will be more in demand than oil reserves. So I'm game to add more if JVA stays GOOD TILL THE LAST DROP this year.
I agree on MCF and own it myself. If YH is correct. This company only has 15 full time employees. The company is just to small and dependent on others. It would be much easier to just sell the oil operations to MCF and return it to shareholders. Mt.Emmons could be sold separately and another dividend paid out in liquidation. This company making an acquisition at this stage in the game would be foolish IMO. As to why the company should liquidate. A quick 50% loss in stock price has something to do with it. This company's recent history of ROE would be better off in long term Treasurys , even at these low rates. Of coarse I could be wrong. Looks like tax loss selling still going on here today.
With the current stock price at 1.66. The question is do you liquidate the company now and give shareholders something without a long wait.? I'm assuming hedged production can only last so long and proven reserves will eventually have to be written down.
Well, I just check today's going price. It's under 10 now. Oh well, the thought was there.
Since the price of oil has put Jed Clampett back in the log cabin, but not the poor house. Just maybe Freeport might cool on it's Oil operations and tilt towards Molybdenum. The price TC reported last qtr $13.94 per pound doesn't seem to shabby.
FWIW-Meridian OHC Partners philosophy
We believe such companies are systemically undervalued by the market due to most equity investment models strongly favoring growth companies with the potential to experience rapid stock appreciation. Small, mature, well-run companies are frequently “orphaned” by investors that consider them “value traps” and believe that, if such companies cannot quickly find ways to restart growth, they should be auctioned and sold.
I guess you didn't see 60 minutes this Sunday. Hinting Bipartisan support for long overdue Roads Bridge& Seaports repairs .IMO now that the price of gas is down. I think it stands a good chance.
Newfield Exploration will be receiving most likely 800 million from their China proceeds when executed. The company is well hedged also. I doubt their going to put the coming proceeds into treasury bills.
I sold my shares this week at this level. Why, At this price AIRT achieved what I thought was a hypothetical.privatization level.. FWIW- I switched into MLR. Oh, locking in a big profit had something to do with it also. I think your in good hands here for the future. Although there were some bumps in the road.. This stock has been good to me since 2006.
Well said,I agree. Based on this past qtr without extraordinary items. IMO this can easily be a value stock. going forward. FWIW I also think nutritional retail will take some share away from the direct sale market. IE: Herbalife Nu-skin. To think many years ago Martek Biosciences had to much capacity and had to sell it. Makes me want to think the founding owners might be willing to hook up with DSM if ever approached, and grow this company faster. RE:Amerifit Brands
I believe you are right in your opinion. However today Cramer is humbled by the death of his dad. I wish him the best even though he doesn't agree with us, at this moment in time. I thought this was a buy at 12. I was wrong!
