    Big Raind In N. Cal next 9 days

    Blue or malty

    Explain to me why you need snow pack? If it is all rain, in runs down to the reservoirs and fills them up now. If it snows in the mountains, It only partially fills the reservoirs now and does the rest later. So, in the end, what is the difference

    The womb to the tomb government and allies in the media do not want the drought to end. They don't need snow melt if they get a couple more rains like this one. Redding average 15 inches of rain from Feb 1, June 30th. They can get half of this in this storm alone and there will be more snow with this that the nanny's will admit. Funny today The Weather Underground had .09 forecast for Redding. Mid afternoon that had .32 and WU raised the forecast to .25, lol. Now they had .44 and WU took down the .25, made it .00. Redding with today and if the forecast works out, they will get 6.31 inches. And nothing is forecast for tomorrow, yet it looks like they could get a little by the satellite images. Hope I am not counting my eggs before they hatch, but they seem quite certain. But, last week NY NY was to have a major snaw and they had little.

    Special Statement

    Statement as of 3:31 PM PST on February 02, 2015

    An atmospheric river (a plume of concentrated moisture) is taking aim for the Pacific northwest and northern California with wetter weather impacting our region Thursday through Monday. Snow levels will start around 7000 ft elevation, near Sierra pass levels, on Thursday and then rise higher over the weekend so this pattern will not cause a significant improvement to snow pack. Models are still variable in terms of exact precipitation amounts, but it should be a decent rain event for much of norcal. Confidence is highest for heavy rainfall occurring north of Interstate 80. Rainfall amounts along the southern portion of the storm, south of Interstate 80, could change significantly based on storm track. We will continue to update as the storm gets closer and confidence improves.

    Impacts:

    * localized Urban and Small Stream flooding * limited Road problems as snow levels will likely be at or above Sierra pass levels * occasional power outages from breezy to gusty southerly winds * potential for debris flows near wildfire burn scars

    Timing and strength:

    * precipitation expected Thursday for northwest CA and will spread east and southward by Friday with most of the valley measuring 1-4 inches and 4-10 inches across foothills and mountains * heaviest precipitation expected Friday * strongest winds expected on Friday with valley gusts up to 45 mph and higher gusts across the mountains

    Malty, as long as the reservoirs end up better than last year, Z should be alright for another year? Maybe snowpack rises substantially before the rainy seasons?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Weather Underground forecast
    Redding 4.08 inches
    Oroville 3.79 inches
    Sacramento 2.03 inches.

    They change this a couple times per day and if it works out, the mountains usually get more than the valley cities.

    But it must continue. Redding where the 1st and 3rd biggest reservoirs in Cal are. Redding averages almost 6 inches in January, had little. Then it averages 14.92 inches of rain from Feb 1 thru June 30. Lets hope the rains come and continue throughout the season. The southern half of the valley is where fruits and veggies are grown and they are worse off than the north(rice country) All the major northern reservoirs are substantially ahead of last year except Trinity, which is behind.

    I seldom disagree with you gnus, but Short did not say "repairs, so the Irgovel plant can run at our targeted post expansion production levels beginning on January 2". He just said beginning in January.

    But you are right, he did reword the "being able to run at and ideally above that 9,000 ton per month revenue processing capacity.", a bit less positive about that. But, he did not eliminate the possibility. In a previous CC he said, as I recall, that they were like surprised at how much more than the 9000 tons they could do. Let's hope he is just trying to under promise, for a change.

    malty, Sao Paulo is over 700 miles from Pelotas. Pelotas has had rain the whole growing season and a lot the last two months. It is tough to find readings, but I watch the satellite daily. search below

    verge, my guess now is that Short waited for Irgovel to at capacity before he put out the PR. They don't ramp that up overnight. My guess in January has to be half capacity average at the worst. The good news at Irgovel is that their region has had plenty of rain the last couple of months. And now with their harvest coming in a month or two, it is getting a bit drier, which they like for harvesting. The northern Cal major reservoirs are all above last year, except Trinity I'll post the link at iHub in a bit in a post. They did have a lot of rain last year in Feb/March, so they need some to stay above last years levels.

    I do wish Short had mentioned the stateside bran situation. Maybe that comes in a coming PR? Such as the cosmetic kickoff

  • Key line, "and will work diligently to EXCEED that production level when possible and continue to evolve our product mix towards our higher margin products." Also, "During the month of January, we have ramped up daily production and are currently operating the plant at the originally forecasted target level of 300 metric tons per day". So, they have been milling for a long enough time to get it to 300 metric tons. Just off this, we should have a good Q1.

    Tidbit, I wonder if someone sabotaged the bid ask causing the stock to be halted and stock sold cheap, possible stop losses. The timing of the trouble and the PR coming out is very suspicious.

    Tidbit 2, it looks like rain is coming back to northern Cal the 5th, 6th and 7th. They have had rain out that far the past couple of weeks and backed off it, hope it is right this time.

    never had unexpected good news. Earnings had NRVER exceeded forecasts, lots of positive stories, but never with earnings estimates. H&N was nice, but the stock diluted to get it. Irgovel was never nice as it was a rat trap when brad bought it. Cosmetics were a nice surprise recently and craft beer, but with the failure of meat extenders and nutraceuticals, we need proof. Under Short it is better than Brad, but a high school business club could do better than both? Under Short I have said enough about how Zeal For Life coming saved us from a Short BK. My point, it would sure be nice for Short for once to do what he said at his first CC after BK, He wanted to be a CEO who under promised and over performed". Just once, so we know how it feels.. He gets a D- in that so far, he has NEVER exceed promises, yet got a $600,000 bonus from the Board in August, for what? I guess the board like the stock going from $52 to $4 under Short?

    sgi--That was the plan, but it was supposed to be December. Apparently it's been running for some time, but no date given, so it could have been yesterday for all we know.

  • Who knows

  • They love the Irgovel update and the cosmetic kick off. That is why the stock is taking off, NOT

    gnus_hound found the NUKACHA trademark was bought by RIBT on 9/16/2014. NUKACHA is a green tea with rice bran.

    Also, gnus_hound found the Trademark for Riceade was refiled. One could speculate that medical foods in the form of drinks is coming? Are those 2 items the tip of a bigger medical foods plan?

    Targeting Craft Beer

    I am a bit concerned about the worsening drought in California. Short has been reactive to it, not proactive. Just before the August SH meeting Short made DePaul a full VP. His job is supply chain, procurement, logistics and operational capacities. So, it seems to me that in July that Short or DePaul had NO IDEA that rice bran in California was going to be in short supply or DePaul might not have been promoted. There is a California email publication that was forecasting shortages in May, since they get no rain there all summer. OMG, then he blames the 100 year drought that was WELL KNOWN in March since plantings were in. The Board led by COB Schweitzer give Short a $600,000 stock bonus just before it is made public that bran is in short supply. Also, Short withheld material information about the bran suppliers in Brazil not coming back after the 3 month shutdown from Jan 1 through March until the August filing. They knew that in April. All they told us was that they were having trouble getting bran up til that point. Short seems to think that the "Safe Harbor For Forward Looking Statements" means he can lie and withhold material information, in my opinion.

    Again, I am bullish on RIBT. The product is so good that it will overcome Brad and Short, especially now with a real sales person in the form of Mark McKnight.
