I really want to like this stock, but I can't. I think they make a good product, I think eventually Jones will rise, possibly even get bought out. But I don't think the investor confidence is there for this stock (at least for now), and that's really the key for any stock to do well. However, last year indicated what this stock could do, and it's possible it will do it again, but not anytime soon, especially with the way it's been falling lately.

I'd have a hard time investing in a soda company whose stock sells for less than the soda.

Yeah i cant imagine back in the 1800's when Coca-Cola came out a 5 pennys a bottle what its share values must have been i would assume about 20 or 30 dollars from the sounds of you. No company's first IPO is Hundreds of dollars. Look at Target they are a company from the Northwest just as Jones and look at there stock....uhmmm their first IPO was dirt cheap, bet you cant get it for dirt cheap now. It is easier to insult a company like Jones than to support them either through purchase of product or stock...I know lets just let Coke and Pepsi have it all and then we can say wow who would want to buy a stock that the cola is cheaper than??? Only thing is there wont be any stock to be bought. You really studied economics well.

LMAO, jojoe, you have to be kidding me. Where did you get the idea that these guys are an IPO? This company IPOed years ago.Their statements look like a damn train wreck. At .80 a share the P/E is in the hundreds. It doesn't matter if Coke, Pepsi or Pamprins are your competition, if you have a product that you actually know how to sell, it will prosper. I don't see that being the case here. You might want to do some research before flapping your gums and insulting me. Coca-cola was down just over 8 dollars the day of the crash of 1929, it was selling for over 128. I can assure you, Coca-Cola did not IPO at .80 a share. There was a reason for this and it wasn't just rank speculation, it's because they knew how to market their product to a mass audience. Jones obviously doesn't have a clue how to do that. The problem with this company is they are too damn busy trying to make a political statements than actually marketing a soda. This company has had big breaks and screwed them up. It had a contract with Starbucks but lost it. It has marketing deals all over the place but good luck finding their sodas in those same stores that they have deals with. What you're looking at is a contrast in Seattle based companies. Seattle is the liberal mecca of the Northwest and Jones makes it quite clear that liberal politics is much more important then corporate profits. Contrast this with Starbuck's, a company too damn smart to mire itself in Seattle liberalism. Face it, this company will eventually be flat on its rear end but if you want to throw good money at it, be my guest.

This company is on it's way out!! No one saw the financial statements? Three yrs of losses and their soda marketing is a horror flick.
Hope you Fools and Foolets take caution! Don't try to get rich off this stock It's going take you to the cleaners. Ask yourself how many times you seen this product in a store or on TV? Also it is so high in sugar that it should be called diabetes in a can..Smart parents won't buy it for there kids! Just my two cents..which this stock will be at in 2-3 years.

I think they will still get bought out at a slight premium but doesnt feel worth the risk. Love their soda though.

Wal-Mart rammed this company into the ground. That'll teach a little upstart domestic company to try to make a business work in the 21st century!
