    GME momentum seems to be doing just fine. You should stop living in your alternate universe.

    So who is the fool now?

    So where is this slow drift to $38 to $40 range you said was coming back in May 28th? Weeks later we are at $43.03 and much higher than that with the jump in after hours trading. I looked in a dictionary for the word CLOWN and BEEFSTU57 was written next to it as the definition.

    After running away with his tail between his legs after the incredible Gamestop earnings report, our honorary Clown with his Clown Act is back telling us we are lucky to have the stock priced at $42 while the stock closes this same day at $43 and is up 47 cents a share in after hours trading.

    Any short squeeze soon

    Only a short term pullback due to a relatively uneventfuly month of May for Video Game releases. Therefore, due to unfavorable comparisons the shorts will get their way up until June's video game sales are reported a month from now. So this is the Summer slowdown where us Longs sit back and accumulate shares. Fallout 4 + Final Fantasy 15 + Legend if Zelda WIIU are going to make the stock explode to $60+ next year.

    Stock is up 27+% year to date. Doesn't need to be a short squeeze for this to be an amazing long term investment with solid dividends to reinvest.

    Digital Game Trade-ins don't work.

    I can stress this enough. The Collectibe Genre is soon going to explode in popularity with more companies making more games that allow you to introduce content into your game with a physical playing card, toy, plastic sword, whatever the skies the limit. The physical gaming world is expanding as we speak....You just need to get out more often and smell the fresh air for a change.

    Human Beings aren't Mind Numbed Robots. They naturally want something they can touch and manipulate. Would you like to actually hit a homerun or digitally pretend to?

    The fact is that the Physical World of Gaming HAS evolved. It will continue to evolve and compete effectively with Digital for Video Gamer's time and money. Are Vehicles going away????? Nope...People love to drive.

    Hey if you want to compete against the entire planet to race to get a preowned digital copy....Well good luck with that. With Physical Preowned Games I have far fewer people entering the Gamestop to buy the Preowned game I wanted before I can.

    That is going to be Digitals downfall...

    There are now 3 companies making Collectible Genre Video Games. You have Skylanders from Activision Blizzard, Nintendo, and now the makers of Jurrasic Park Builder teaming up with Hasbro to introduce toy Dinosaurs into their Jurrasic World Mobile Video Game.

    Unaudited financials indefinitely

    varchild2010 varchild2010 Jun 4, 2015 3:47 PM Flag

    You aren't supposed to post up Audited financials one time only. In the Up List world all financials are audited financials. It is called transparency and transparency isn't about share price action as it is much more about being open and honest with the investment community. It would be one thing if yoir company has done audited financials in the past but for whatever reasons can't always do them every quarter... A whole thing entirely that you refuse to do them at all.

    A real company has nothing to hide and when your company continues to keep basic information about your company a trade secret it doesn't look like you care at all about the investment community. Why Bebedia Beverage remains a public company is only because of OTC and pretty much anythibg goes on the OTC. Let's see how long you'd last if you up listed and held to a higher standard of transparency and ethics.

  • Never invest in any company that refuses to issue auditted financials. According Bebevco_ir they have audited financials but won't release them publicly. That is what I get from bebevco_ir's answers in the below thread. That seems to also mean they won't reveal who their auditing agency is. All of which is a requirement to ever be placed on a major index like NASDAQ.

    Years ago I did buy some shares of this and sold them in 2 or 3 weeks after. BBDA isn't a serious beverage company. A serious company doesn't have anything to hide and this one seems to be hiding everything.

    The dividend payments alone are worth the extremely low entry fee of less than $45 a share. Each share you buy nets you $1.44 back not counting future dividend increases. Reinvest those dividends to collect bigger dividends. Retire rich cause Video Games are sitting in a recession proof sector of the economy.

    Forgot. There is a video game based on the new Jurassic Park which could be a sleeper hit.

  • varchild2010 varchild2010 Jun 4, 2015 8:37 AM Flag

    No blockbuster names this year?

    1) Star Wars
    2) Final Fantasy 15 (release date unknown holding out hope it arrives December)
    3) Recent release of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt and Xenoblade Chronicles.
    4) Legend of Zelda. WIIU.
    5) The New 3DS Game System will sell like hot cakes this Christmas.
    6) Fallout 4 (recent trailer released)

    and a whole bunch more blockbusters possibly releasing this year.

  • If I buy a digital game....resell it back tomorrow.... Now why would anyone ever buy the brand new original version of the game? A single copy whatever code is assigned to it could pass thousands of hands much easier much quicker than physical retail.

    In the physical retail world there may not be a prepend copy available and so a random shopper buys the new version. I am not convinced digital shoppers will behave in the same way in an online digital reselling environment. Far more prepend games passing hands will occur causing original price tags to drop more quickly.

    For example.... In my local area a game like Blood borne can sell out on release day. The fact that a game can sell out keeps pricing on games the same for longer periods of time. Digital world isn't tied to that aspect of supply and demand. Instead you have infinite supply against limited demand. There will be online forums of gamers informing people of games they are reselling back which artificially drives prices lower as potential buyers of a brand new video game will now be influenced to wait and buy a preowned digital copy.

    This isn't the same thing as in physical as the temptation to buy a new game Instead of waiting a week or 2 for a prowled copy is present upon a shopper just browsing through a store...Or Gamestop informing a customer that hey a brand new copy is available at their other location and it can be held for you.

    Another problem is Gamestop can handle reserving preowned copies for customers while Digital is a madhouse of shoppers competitive to get their hands on a preowned copy.

    The Diablo 3 example of reselling in-game content is similar to what could happen reselling digital games. You have the original sticker price... Huge demand... Core gamers beating the video game and reselling it very quickly.... Buyers and sellers from all over the world influencing pricing in 1 location as opposed to a game today being in local markets influenced by local economies and demand. Instead of a game selling for original price in one country and a bit lower in another prepend to match supply and demand.... You instead deal with the economy of the online world as a whole and how prices are impacted is quite different than physical retail.

    Not saying it can't be done technically, just saying it will be near impossible to do it in a manner that is competitive to physical reselling of games. When you are dealing with digital, you deal with a population that can more rapidly buy and resell and manipulate the pricing of games. The prices have to drop to compete with Gamestop / Gamestation etc. How will they handle diminishing returns ?

    $20 a month or $240 a year just for the PERMISSIONS slip to begin playing your video games which in a digital world would otherwise be paper weight?

    See the problem is that in America not everyone is Middle Class to Upper Class. Not everyone has or wants to fork over $240 a year with the possible THREAT the monthly fee will go up in future years....Not everyone can do that especially during an Economic Recession where companies are cutting jobs and cutting pay.

    The idea that you introduce a technology that costs $240 a year will ultimately be a MAGIC ACORN to welcome in the 100% Digital everything world is short sighted and hilarious of you to have such a small sense of the world. You don't get out much.

    Take a trip in the Inner Cities and see for yourself who can and can not pay $240 a year for Internet Service. A lot of people can not pay for WATER service here in MICHIGAN and you expect $240 a year for INTERNET is a huge savings?

  • The first concept floated or one of the first concepts was from a company called GMG. It all sounds wonderful until you find out you have to access the Internet once every 3 days.

    So, you are gone for a week visiting your grandparents in Florida who don't have Internet and you aren't going to ship your Desktop computer down to Florida.....You get back and..#$%$!!!

    Maybe Sony or Microsoft will eventually come up with a solutions to this major problem with needing your machine to "touch base with server" frequently for digital game trade-ins to work.

    Or... Maybe they can not come up with a solution? Or maybe the whole darn thing is patented making the situation not even viable for either company?

    Either way.. It is 2015 and there is no target date from either company for digital trade-ins.

    Another obvious problem with digital trade-ins is going to be video games that require physical collectibles that Nintendo and Activision Blizzard have produced. Games which require Collectibles are never going to be DIGITAL TRADE-INs.... They would by their very nature be PHYSICAL Trade-ins. That's an entire super popular with Kids....Genre of Video Games that the Digital Trade-in world can not replace.

    Don't get me started with a litany of other issues and problems for the Naïve who think DIGITAL TRADE-INs will do away with Physical copies.

    The digital trade-in world will have an extremely difficult time dealing with pricing and an extremely miserable time trying to be competitive with Physical Game Retailers in this department.....Due to the super vast speed games will be bought and sold back...

    For an example of an Economic Collapse situation you only need to look at DIABLO III which introduced an Auction House to sell in-game items.... Blizzard had to do away with the Auction House and ultimately declare the whole thing a failure because hard to find items became far too easy all of a sudden to acquire, this distorting the entire economy of the game.
