Coming out of the closet

"Coming out of the closet!" - well that would be the BEARS today. Not the Chicago Bears, or the Bad News Bears, but the market BEARS. The ones who have been trying to time the next market correction since December and SPY $115. Now imagine what your portfolio looks like when you have been short as the market has ramped up 15%. It sure must look UGLY. But today is your day to cheer and gloat... to say "I told you so!".

Go out and get a drink. Party likes it's 2008. You deserve it. A hard earned victory. Your battle against the limitless coffers of the world's government's was yours today. The QE1 and QE2 are ships sailing on the atlantic now.  Operation Twist? Isn't that a game you play with a few friend when you are drunk?

You knew it was only a matter of time before the weight of Greece and the eurozone debt problems took hold. China reducing it's GDP outlook to 7.5%? That was the icing on the cake. The Black Swan event is only around the corner. You've been betting on the short side since you saw this guy say the market will crash.

It's about time your insight, foresight, and intuition proved you right. It's evil work being a bear. Now you just need a 20% move to the downside to get back to even...

Only problem is, this government will not let that happen. Not when the president is waging his battle for re-election. Not when the battle of the economy is fully in his control. Should this market be up 30% from it's October lows? No way... but trading on the macro environment alone will only turn your portfolio red. Go ask any BEAR.

It will be time to head back into hibernation soon. Today was only tease. Another reason for the bears to throw money into a false hope of a correction.

I guess we shall see what the next few weeks bring, but I am guessing we start working towards $140 on the SPY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Win! WIN! WYNN!!!!!!!!!

We wrote about WYNN last night, and a possible move to $130 short term. What we wrote:

We like WYNN here and think $130 is in the cards in short order. We are putting our chips on the March and April Calls. Check out our watch list and chatroom for the strikes.

We were right with CME, ICE, FOSL, FSLR, PCLN, CSTR... the list goes on and on. And WYNN was no exception. The stock broke out in the morning and ran to $131.50, resulting in massive returns for anyone grabbing $130 calls. Not only that, we got the Hollywood drama we spoke about last night, as the stock was halted as WYNN was busy retracting an 8-k that hit the wires.

Volatility like this is an option traders wet dream. We were able to reload on some WYNN $130 calls when the stock reopened at $125. The stock rocketed to $132 and we were once again able to cash in on some massive returns. All these calls were alerted in our chatroom and watchlist.

Lets see what next week brings, but what a great way to end the week!!

 

For the WYNN.

Sometimes trading options can be compared to gambling at a casino. Black and red on the roulette table, might as well be Calls and Puts. So what better way to make money trading, then placing bets on the actually casinos? Two of the stocks trading that we like to play are Las Vegas Sands(LVS) and Wynn Resorts(WYNN). Wynn Resorts seems like the stock with best chance to make option players money. Why? Well because it's been beaten down, has had Hollywood drama, and is now starting to get people on the bandwagon.

It seems like last weekends ouster of Kazuo Okada from Wynn's board of directors was the first catalyst for the stocks impending move higher. It failed to hold the $120 level, and dipped to $116, before firing back and closing at $122.06, the highest close since mid-november. If you have followed WYNN, you know how volatile the stock can be. And option traders drool over volatile stocks, especially one you grab a position in before the volatility.

We like WYNN here and think $130 is in the cards in short order. We are putting our chips on the March and April Calls. Check out our watch list and chatroom for the strikes.

"This has been a defining year for SodaStream with strong top and bottom line growth in each of the four quarters, driven by robust soda maker and consumable sales," commented Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream.  "Our U.S. business experienced strong growth in 2011 driven by our launch of new products, retail expansion, and ramped up marketing efforts, including our first TV commercial.  The U.S. is now our largest single market with sales growth at 104% for the year, unit sales of soda makers up 113% and CO2 refills and flavors up 98% and 132%, respectively. This is a clear indication that consumers are embracing our brand as we continue to bring our revolution to every household in America.

Worldwide, we recently entered new markets in Japan and Brazil and are experiencing accelerated growth in France, Australia, and the U.K.  The recent acquisition of our Nordics business enables us to further grow in this important region as well," stated Mr. Birnbaum.  "Looking ahead, we continue to invest in product innovation and strategic partnerships, consumer education and brand building, retail and geographic expansion, and capacity increase ahead of demand. With these key components in place, we look to 2012 and beyond with great anticipation."

Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2011:

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2011 were Euro 66.1 million, $85.7 million as per a convenience translation*, an increase of 32.1% compared to Euro 50.0 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2010. Revenues for Western Europe and the Americas increased 20.5% and 70.2%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter of 2010. (See table with geographic breakdown below)

During the fourth quarter of 2011, revenues of soda maker starter kits, which include a soda maker, a CO2 cylinder and a bottle, increased 24.4% to Euro 31.4 million and revenues of consumables increased 37.8% to Euro 32.6 million. On a unit basis, soda maker starter kits increased 7.7% to 767,000, CO2 refills increased 26.6% to 3.4 million, and flavors increased 24.2% to 4.6 million.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2011 was 57.3%, compared to 54.3% for the same period in 2010.  This increase was primarily due to the growing portion of higher-margin U.S. sales, leveraging the fixed portion of the production costs to achieve higher revenue, and a positive currency exchange rate impact.

Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled Euro 28.1 million compared to Euro 18.9 million for the comparable period last year. The increase is primarily due to an increase in marketing spending to capitalize on new distribution opportunities, mainly in the United States. As a percentage of revenues, sales and marketing expenses excluding advertising and promotions decreased to 17.4% for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to 20.3% for the fourth quarter of 2010.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2011 were Euro 5.7 million, compared to Euro 4.6 million in the comparable period of last year. General and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2011 include Euro 1.0 million of non-cash share-based compensation expense (the "Share-Based Compensation Expense") while general and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2010 include Euro 0.7 million of the Share-Based Compensation Expense and Euro 88,000 related to a previous management fee that was cancelled effective as of November 2010.

Adjusted general and administrative expenses exclude the Share-Based Compensation Expense as well as the discontinued management fees. Such adjusted general and administrative expenses were Euro 4.7 million or 7.1% of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2011, and Euro 3.9 million or 7.8% of revenues for the comparable period of 2010.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2011 was Euro 4.1 million, or Euro 0.20 ($0.26 per the convenience translation) per fully diluted share based on 20.8 million weighted average shares, compared to net income of Euro 3.5 million, or Euro 0.21 per fully diluted share based on 17.1 million weighted average shares, in the comparable period in 2010. Excluding the Share-Based Compensation Expense and the discontinued management fees, Adjusted net income (as defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2011 was Euro 5.1 million, or Euro 0.25 ($0.32 per the convenience translation) per fully diluted share, compared to Adjusted net income of Euro 4.3 million, or Euro 0.25 per fully diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled Euro 6.9 million, compared to Euro 6.2 million for the comparable period in 2010. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 10.5% for the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to 12.3% for the comparable period in 2010.

Cash flow used in operating activities during the fourth quarter of 2011 was Euro 3.1 million, compared to Euro 1.9 million during the comparable quarter of 2010.

*As of December 31, 2011, the Euro to U.S. Dollar exchange rate was: Euro 1.00 equaled $1.2973

Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2011, cash and cash equivalents and bank deposits increased to Euro 57.2 million from Euro 52.9 million as of December 31, 2010. The increase is attributable mainly to the Euro 33.1 million raised from the secondary offering that closed on April 19, 2011, less cash used for operating activities (mainly increase in working capital), capital investments and debt repayment. As of December 31, 2011, loans and borrowings were Euro 3.1 million, compared to Euro 6.8 million as of December 31, 2010. Working capital as of December 31, 2011 was Euro 60.3 million, an increase of 122.1%, compared to Euro 27.2 million as of December 31, 2010, primarily due to an increase in inventory and accounts receivable.

Change in Reporting Currency

Beginning with the first quarter ending March 31, 2012, the Company will change its reporting currency to the U.S. dollar (USD).  To date, the Company has presented its annual and quarterly consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of operations and cash flows in Euro (EUR).  The change in reporting currency is to better reflect the importance of the U.S. market for the Company's current and future business plans.

In accordance with IFRS, the financial statements for comparative periods will be translated (restated) into the new reporting currency using the exchange rate as of January 1, 2012.

Full Year 2012 Guidance

The Company expects full year 2012 revenue to increase approximately 28% over 2011 revenue of Euro 222.7 million ($289.0 million per the convenience translation of 1.2973).  The Company also expects net income to increase by approximately 42% as compared with its net income of Euro 21.2 million ($27.5 million per the convenience translation of 1.2973) reported in 2011. This guidance includes a share-based payment expense of approximately Euro 4.1 million in 2012 compared to share-based payment expense of Euro 4.2 million in 2011. On an adjusted basis, excluding the share-based payment expense, 2012 net income is expected to increase approximately 35% over the Adjusted net income of Euro 25.3 million ($32.9 million per the convenience translation of 1.2973) reported in 2011.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-IFRS measures, including Adjusted net income ("Adjusted net income"), Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Income Tax, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), and Adjusted diluted earnings per share ("Adjusted diluted EPS").

Adjusted net income represents net income calculated in accordance with IFRS as adjusted for the impact of the Share-Based Compensation Expense and for the impact of the discontinued management fees. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of the Share-Based Compensation Expense and of the discontinued management fees. Adjusted diluted EPS represents earnings per share calculated in accordance with IFRS as adjusted for the impact of the Share-Based Compensation Expense and for the impact of the discontinued management fees.

The Company believes that the Adjusted net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted diluted EPS, which excludes the Share-Based Compensation Expense and the discontinued management fees, should be considered in evaluating the Company's operations since they provide a clearer indication of the Company's operating results going forward.

These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with IFRS, but should not be considered a substitute for the IFRS results. The non-IFRS measures included in this press release have been reconciled to the IFRS results in the tables below.

SodaStream (SODA) – Making Money on Options 101

We started writing about SodaStream(SODA) at the start of february. SodaStream(SODA) was getting a boost from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters(GMCR) earnings. And why shouldn't it? SodaStream's(SODA) product and business model is very similar to Green Mountain Coffee Roasters(GMCR). Both employ the very profitable system that gillette brought to the mainstream with their razors. Consumers buy the product, and then continue to buy the consumables.

But the more we looked into SodaStream(SODA), the more we liked. Huge growth? Check. Huge Short? Check. Great Chart? Check. Amazing Story? Check. Experienced Leadership Team? Check. Buyout candidate? Check.

The only thing missing was enough buyers to fuel the rally,to ignite the shorts to cover, and push the stock higher. Looks like folks are seeing the same things we saw over the past 3 weeks:

The stock has steamrolled from a $38 low on Thursday, to close at $49 in the afterhours today. SodaStream(SODA) almost reminds me of all those people wearing Yankee Jerseys after they win the World Series. "Yeah I am a Yankee Fan!". Of course they were no where to be found during the late summer, and magically appear during the good times. Just like all the people we are seeing now on SodaStream(SODA). Where were you when the stock was under $40?

We were buyers of the calls and got in before the stock got hot. Just like we did with CME, PCLN, GMCR, FOSL, and many others this year. Thats how you make money trading option.

We have a feeling SodaStream will be one of the top "Growth Stocks" of 2012. I guess tomorrow will go a long way in determining that fate. Stay tuned!
