  • We could see a bounce for a trade by day's end when many Shorts may decide to take some profits off the 52 week low.

  • I hope Statoil takes the opportunity to bid for Talisman Energy Inc. over Repsol. They would be a much better fit.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Shutting a company down for fraud and fiduciary neglect, protects future shareholders from taking a loss. Current shareholders may want to go down with the ship and that's their choice. I, on the other hand, am a fighter and act on principle. I'm OK with taking a loss if justice will punish the perpetrator...hence the lawsuit.

    phynone - as I mentioned before, you're an IDIOT. A Class Action Lawsuit doesn't cost the lead plantiff anything ( I've been a lead plantiff before as mentioned in the email). If you were intelligent, you would know that Class Action Attorneys collected their fees from the settlement. The amount they're allowed to collect from the settlement has to be approved by the judge. So again, you're an IDIOT!

    I posted his reply on IHub today. It's Post # 266364 and titled, "Brian Weber's Reply To My Email"

    Yahoo, for whatever reason, will not allow me to copy and paste my lengthy last email to Brian Weber on its message board. If you would like to read it, it's message # 266306 on the BBDA IHub message board.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I usually don't respond to posters who act stupid by attacking the messenger bggrandwizzrd, but I'll make an exception in your case for the sake of clarity. 1) I just joined IHub on the 8th of this month; 2) The post # is 266028; 3) Since I'm the one filing, I think I know a little something about the lawsuit; 4) I'm not anonymous seeing as how you can see who I am via my posts on" BeBevCo's" facebook page (Stephen S. Atkins...hence ssainvesting) and the "$bbda No Haters Allowed" facebook page.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Several days ago, I registered for an IHub account. The reason for registering was that I couldn't get Yahoo to post the content (I'm not sure why, I've never had problems before). So, if interested, please read my post titled, "BBDA Class Action Lawsuit Is Imminent".

    phynone - as mentioned before, Brian "didn't" buyback shares when the stock was lower than it is now. Instead, he increased the Outstanding shares to over 6 billion from just under 900 million over the years. You also reveal in your post that you don't quite understand the reaction of shareholders when a company buys back its shares. The stock price goes up dramatically which is what every CEO should want to see. So, to answer your question, YES I would announce it and give the day and time if need be because my priority would be to the shareholders and NOT to all my Race-car driver friends.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Modcchip - This is Brian's 1st time as a CEO in a Publicly traded business venture.

    carolinasown - Message boards can be informative if you pick out the weeds. Just click on the Flag tab and click "ignore user" to avoid the less than informative posters. I'm a long and have a huge position, but I don't fall in the camp of, "Hear no evil, see no evil, & speak no evil". The CEO has to be held accountable for his lack of business experience as a CEO that has him issuing shares from his printing press to capitalize expenditures at the shareholders' expense. I wish he had a deeper business background, so he could understand how destructive he's been to a company with so much potential.

    After my nibble of 100 shares yesterday at $19.85, I decided to take advantage of today's sell-off. I bought 4,900 shares at $18.85 and another 5,000 shares at $18.15. This gives me 10,000 shares at a dollar cost average of $18.51. Although I'm down as of today's close (always hard to catch the very bottom of a sell-off), I feel very comfortable taking a virgin position in SALE at this price point.

    Once the panic selling drys up, traders like myself will be in great position to profit from 2 events: 1) Value investors sweeping in to take new positions, and 2) Short traders who will Buy-To-Cover to take their profits off the table causing a squeeze or dead cat bounce as they cover in mass. Either way, my 14 years of Day-Trading experience tells me this will be an excellent trade.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Bought in After-Hours trading. Appeared to be a panic sell in After-Hours, so I took a nibble at a position. The plan is to add if it drops or sell if it pops. Seems to be a win-win scenario. Thoughts?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    investig8girl - I'm not sure what video you are referring to. The video I'm referring to is his Investor Update June 5, 2014 video where we was in his office behind his desk.

    Sentiment: Hold

    phynone - I'm guessing you didn't watch the 16 minute video Brian put out a couple months ago which informed shareholders of his intent to buyback shares, and if your theory that the price has something to do with when he buys back shares, and you've been following the stock for more than year, then you know he didn't buy back shares when BBDA was trading at 0.0003 per share ( a third of what it is today). As a matter of fact, not only did Brian not buy back shares at its all time low, he increased the outstanding share count from 850 million shares to almost 6 billion shares.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Bankruptcy would = "F", so I guess Brian gets a "D-" for now until he gets it through his head that the stock is dead until he buys back at least 4-5 billion shares to help reverse the dilution he caused. The product is great and the distribution is growing, but that means absolutely nothing with close to 6 billion shares outstanding, especially when all financial metrics are based on a "per share" basis.

    He tells everyone that the stock buyback is imminent, but talk is cheap (and the stock even cheaper). Debt is not a bad thing to capitalize the company with if the earnings are sufficient enough to pay the monthly principal and interest on that debt and still have positive Leveraged Free Cash Flow. With the buyback of 4 - 5 billion shares and the end of giving away stock to capitalize the company, BBDA could actually get some traction in share price and grow its Market Cap and shareholder value.

    Brian Weber, I hope you are reading this because your shareholders are feeling a lot of pain due to the lack of leadership on your part. It's time to put your CEO pants on and run this company like a business and not your personal Piggy bank.

    Shareholders, If you agree with me, please try to keep this post on the top of the BBDA Message Board by replying with, "BUYBACK shares Brian". Your reply will keep this at the top and hopefully Brian will get the message. Even bashers are welcome to reply because it will serve the same purpose. If we stay strong with a grassroots effort to bring attention to Brian's failures as CEO, he may drop his ego just long enough to do the right thing.

    Thank you for reading.

    Sentiment: Hold
