    JAB Buyout of KKD

    stockbuffet1 stockbuffet1 May 10, 2016 2:58 PM Flag

    I also was a fan of kk donuts. they taste amazing!
    I have not tried dunkin donuts recently.. i don't expect them to be as good as kkd of course.
    how ever, dnkn is everywhere.. unfortunately, they have not updated the 70s look of the stores.
    i assume all the stores are franchise stores.. often owned by immigrants - especially high proportion being from India..
    I don't know if dnkn, as a parent company, can help these franchisees change the appearance of the shops..
    i can't understand why it has taken so long for dnkn to follow starbucks forumla of friendly and pleasant service, with wifi and better appearance..
    I am long on dnkn but for obvious reasons, I am not too crazy about the stock's performance
    Can someone explain to me why this would hit $49 in the near term? Or would it not?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • considering the low volume of messages here, it seems that there is very little retail investment..
    Hence.. not too many knowledgeable retail investors around here..
    I wish someone can explain why dnkn fell badly on mon, tues,
    went up a lot on wed.. fell like a rock on thursday..
    fell and bounced today..
    Just trying to understand.... what makes this stock bounce around so much?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I am long on dnkn.. and obviously feeling the pain.
    I have no idea whether this will go up or down! I wish I knew.. but I don't.. neither does anyone else know for sure... We are all gamblers.. long or short!
    The reason I bet long on dnkn is - their CEO seems smart enough.. and they are changing into a cheaper starbucks model. Starbucks coffee is great but starbucks is very expensive!

    Am I missing something here?
    I don't know why it tanked yesterday..
    Any valid thoughts?

    Buy puts

    large market cap companies like Enron, worldcom failing is less than 1% of the stock market. I am talking only about $1 billion+ market cap companies. In general the market/house always goes up, over time. House/Market always wins.
    Of course, there are exceptional traders who win with puts and also calls. But they are very rare. Notice how Bill Ackman lost in VRX and Herbalife.. Icahn made money.
    Often, the people who make a lot of money, long or short, have some kind of "extra info" than us retail investors.. But when they don't have that extra info... they fail like Ackman..
    I am long on dnkn.. and obviously feeling the pain.

  • Never mind buying opportunity.. never mind the people who say this goes to $12
    just looking for some logical explanation. I am long twtr, because of its name recognition. Turn on the news and someone is always talking about what was on twtr.. it seems to be a great brand name..

    Anyway... why would it go up so much in one day, yesterday and why would it fall so badly today? I assume nothing has changed? no new news?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I heard and read comments that google needs twtr for video.
    Is there any basis for those comments?
    If so, Can someone help me understand why?
    I am long twtr but I know well enough that almost all the time, the "buy out" that share holders like to occur will never happen and Google would most likely not buy twtr.. Us retail investors would never be able to figure out who would buy whom - almost never!

    twrs is obviously falling today.. I sure would like to see it going to $16 soon but it seems to be headed lower!

    I agree with you arbourpricke.. It is laughable as to how some idiots think they can "manipulate" retail investors like us!

    Trump effect on coal?

    Obama had, openly, declared war on coal.
    I assumed that it was partly or mainly the reason for coal's decline - since USA is the worlds major economy.
    Natural gas price decline also cause power companies to switch over but coal went from 40% to 35%. Not sure if that 5% decline of usage by us power companies caused coal's decline.
    I am of the opinion that when a US president delcares war on coal, coal would suffer. If that war is rescinded - by eliminating all the obama epa coal regulations, would that help coal in USA?
    I think India does not have much effect on coal prices. They are still in power defecit and have to continue to build power plants.
    I would assume China would and i don't know to what extent.

    Will Hillary support coal?
    Would it make a difference for coal, whether Trump wins or Hillary wins?
    What is the upside for coal, in each case?

    I would request that we keep this discussion, purely about coal and not the merits or demerits of Hillary or Trump.
    I am assuming that, IF Mr. Trump wins, he would relax EPA regulations on Coal.
    Depending on how the political situation looks in about August, I would like to consider investing in coal companies. I might get the biggest return, based on Political outcome. If Democrats win, Coal is probably a bad investment. I don't know who would win and don't wish to debate politics.
    My question is: If Mr Trump wins, would coal prices go up? If so, by what percentage.
    I am guessing that natural gas prices would not go up, no matter who wins. - or is this assumption incorrect?
    How would coal be affected, if natural gas prices remain constant?
    I am not trying to create arguments.. Just trying to get opinions of people, hopefully more informed than myself.

  • I am considering buying CHK.
    A friend of mine bought this at $9. What is Ichan's average buy price and how much has he invested?
    I thought he bought around an average of $9 and invested about $900 million. Correct?
    Has he sold any.
    When a company's debt shares at 50 cents to 60 cents, it becomes a bad/risky buy.
    CHK's debt is selling at 40 cents? This screams bankruptcy.

    How ever, I am of the opinion/belief that Carl Ichan is not going to walk away with a loss of $900 million.
    I realize that no one, including him, predicted the drop of oil price.
    How much of CHK business is oil vs Gas?
    Has ichan sold any of his shares?
    Are there any recent videos or comments of ichan on chk?
    Just trying to gather information.. Some times, even on these boards, there are some very well knowledged people on a stock. I am hoping to hear from one of them.
    Thank you,
