JSDA and BABB
They took in $28 million from a PIPE in 2006 and no doubt they have great plans for growth. Personally, I can't drink much of their soda. It's too heavy.
Big Apple Bagels (BABB, sec) announced a quarterly cash dividend of 2 cents. The stock remains under a dollar. I was somewhat impressed by how they've run the business over the last 5 years. It might not be growing, but they're managing it for good cash flow.
I just think it's interesting to compare these two stocks.
There are a lot of reasons to like Jones Soda more than Big Apple Bagels. It's growing. It seems to have a glowing future. Is it worth over 17 times more than BABB? Personally I don't think so. This is what a lot of people consider a "growth" vs "value" thing, although Buffett made a very good argument for why that's a bogus difference.
