How can this not run big???? This company will make in the 10's of million im sure with these drinks.
Kids will buy them, and they taste very good. I have had them.
Any views on what the coke deal will mean for this stock? What would a merger mean for Bravo shareholders?

Well, when coke said last week that they were going to buy the stock the price plunged to .85 which is where I got in. SO I really can't figure out this one. I would have thought that it would have bootsted the price but it did not.

So how is it good that COKE wants to buy the shares for .25 cents when it is at .95 cents. I would think that news would not be good????

It would have to be worth more than $5 if they keep selling so much.
What are the other stocks in the beverage business selling for? They gotta be selling for more then a $1
Coke should offer me $30 per share. I will take $25 though.
