JAMBA JUICE goes public. OY!

The nerds are always up in arms about the Web 2.0 being a bubble. While they whine – and they really are whiners – the bankers of the world have moved on to the “New New” thing – SMOOTHIES?

I would never short this thing but this deal is a joke. Always has been. This was a designed exit from the “get go” so congrats for that.

That said, I am a true non-believer in smoothie shops and don’t think this can end well.

This deal is “financial engineering” from Wall Street’s finest. It is more harmful and deserving of more talk than a “Web 2.0 bubble.”

Long – OY!

    you really hate this thing that much? I’ve been interested in what these guys have been doing the last year. not enough to pull the trigger, but I don’t hate them. No money in smoothies?

    damn you’re late on this “story”. they “went public” via a reverse merger with a shell company months ago. used to trade as SVI or something until several days ago.

    Holy shit howard, your behind the 8 ball on that one. Good going Mike. now that Howard has egg on his face, maybe he can use some BAIDU.com Juice to wash it off.

    Love the name finance ninja. Ugly is going to be pissed about that.

    Yep Jamba is going to $100. Just without me :)

    Jamba Juice is huge here in Hawaii. A jamba juice is on every corner like 7-Eleven and Starbux. Jamba Juice strategically places itself right next to starbucks. i’d invest in Jamba Juice stock. whats the ticker? I thought it wasn’t public. just wait until they hit the mainland really hard!
