  • I don't see why RIBT is going up, unless somebody knows something I don't. I don't see anything on the chart as a reason to buy as well. Let's hope what ever it is is game changing, except not a buyout.

    Go to RIBT iHub or $RIBT Twitter to get my links on the coming rains to northern California and reservoir levels. Yahoo sucks.

    And rain is in the forecast for the Redding/Oroville areas where the 3 biggest reservoirs in Cal are. They need a lot as they are well below last year at this time, but last year they go no rain til, February to speak of. Fingers crossed.

    And Short has done nothing to calm any fears. The have not put out new guidance for 2014, just told shareholders we cancel it. Warren Buffet is dumping his shares in food company ConocoPhillips .because they missed guidance. big time. Yes Short does not know what the real wold is in NASDAQ land. He has never been head of a NASDAQ listed stock not in BK. And his absolutely terrible shareholder relationship is hurting everybody now. Still we should muddle through it, but vultures are watching a greenhorn NASDAQ CEO. I wonder if he will enjoy his weekend in Bend Oregon as his companies stock flounders near all time lows.

    This Ebola is scary stuff. Not to be an alarmist, but think of the possibilities. Early explores to America brought European diseases and wiped out the entire Dominican Republic with diaereses, the Mayans are gone and Cortez said to have brought European diseases that wiped out 90% of the American Indians. Is this psyback? A caller to a talk radio station yesterday brought up the possibility of Mexicans getting an outbreak of Ebola and both healthy Mexicans and infected Mexicans pour across our porous border. We'd be screwed. I sure hope our government is more concerned than they appear to be and the official statements seem to change about the severity daily.

    voodoo--And the NASDAQ falling 10% recently hurts most all stocks. This is definitely a buying opportunity. Too bad the ash hole at Irgovel broke out momentum, but it will return, just later than we had hoped.

    I guess Short's PR with not figures or estimates of new sales did not impress the street

  • sixth_8th by sixth_8th Oct 15, 2014 11:37 AM Flag

    It has a message board at Yahoops now.

  • I can see trough all the missteps and poor communication with the street that things are now coming together.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • ......it raises questions. It says today "The expansion project will start in Q4 2014 and is expected to be completed before the end of Q2 2015."
    But the PR about the nutricosmetics 3 weeks ago says " the initial products to reach consumers in the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015."
    So one must assume that that can make the new cosmetics now, but we are not sure. Investors must have information to buy stocks. Why could they not have reaffirmed the initial shipments would be shipped in Q 4 and 1 rather than confuse potential investors . I keep saying Shorts PR ability is lacking big time and it still is. You can't teach BK CEO's to be Food Sales CEO's, I guess.

    The last trade at the exact close happened yesterday as well, and several times in the past two months and it is always at the bid and usually 200 shares. The timing tells me it has to be a market maker who can time it to the second. My Schwab trades take sometimes 30 seconds, sometimes less than five, but no way could I time it to the second buying through Schwab.

    The only logical reason I can think of for someone to make a small trade at the bid is to make the stock's performance look worse than it is. And the only reason for that I can thin of is someone who is stealth buying who does not want to force up the stock with his buying. If I wanted to short, I'd want it higher. If i want to sell, I'd want it higher. If I want to buy I'd want it lower. It is not shorts forcing it down to make a profit because we only have 2 and 1/2 days of shorts, and that is like nothing compared to other stocks.

    We will rocket, but we need figures. Shorts BS got exposed when he cancelled guidance. Had he revised it down a bit, that would have been a help. He obviously does not believe in himself or he would give new guidance and that is why we need a new CEO, one who has enough knowledge of the situation to give guidance. But, the product is so good that it survived Brad and now Short, but mostly because of Zurvita Zeal For Life, and not Short.. We were saved by a customer who knew how to sell it.

    The part of Brazil when Irgovel is is getting plenty of rain. The currency adjustment is falling nicely in Z's favor, it was at at a 5 year high last week. It looks possible that the adjustment for Q4 will be neutral for the first time in over a year.

  • U.S. grain processor Archer Daniels Midland Co. ( ADM ) has agreed to buy Specialty Commodities Inc., for $170 million.

    Specialty Commodities processes and distributes healthy, natural and organic ingredients including nuts, fruits, seeds, legumes and ancient grains.

    "One of the ways we are improving returns and reducing the volatility of our earnings is through the expansion of our specialty ingredients portfolio," said ADM Chairman and CEO Patricia Woertz.

    SCI is majority owned by Goldner Hawn Johnson & Morrison.

    ADM expects to close deal in the coming weeks, subject to regulatory approvals. Specialty Commodities will become part of ADM's new WILD Flavors and Specialty Ingredients business unit.

    Eyes must be on RIBT, but I don't want a sale down here.

  • "The government of Liberia has not changed their posture. They do not want to engage us so that we can talk," Williams said. "Time is running out, by 1200 midnight on Monday morning, we will be starting the go-slow action."

    Liberia's deputy health minister Matthew Flomo said the government was not aware of health workers planning to strike.

    And malty--The currently popular investment dude calls himself called "Superman". He has 0ver 29,000 followers, a chat room for over $100, etc. He was in the stock the last few weeks and suspect he got his sheep out this week. Well, they provide short term liquidity, but long term investors will move it up permanently.

  • Interesting story about Reed's success in FoodIngredients today. I have seen too many vultures in RIBT fund raises and stock for debt to inside 'vultures'. Put "In conversation with Reed's CEO Chris Reed on kombucha, ginger brew & raising money without 'vulture capitalists' into the Yahoo search for the story or go to iHub RIBT

    feesah--He was doing OK, but he has some making up to do for the current disappointments and nobody I know believes the ash hole had all that much to do with the needed new money that Belt said on August 20th "We continue to believe we have sufficient resources available to us at this time to deliver on our business plan and achieve positive cash flow in 2014." And then 6 weeks later needs $6.5 mil? And there was no mention in the nutracosmetics PR that the $H & N needed expansion. No feesah, Short all of a sudden did not deliver on his words big time. He blew shareholder confidence BIG TIME and this shareholder will never have confidence in him again, unless he can pull a rabbit out of his pony tail.
