Papa John's Idiocy has already cost the company $140M as of today

Stock price in 2008=14.81 ... Stock Price before controversy= 53.10, He's doing pretty well... Drop since threatened boycott and lawsuit for spamming customers= 47.06 and dropping... 53.10-47.06= 6.04 x 23.13M shares= wiping just under 140Million dollars of company value off the book the last few days. Just how much is that healthcare going to cost? a lot less than 140M

but, just like Willard Romney cancelling the credit cards by means of which staffers ran his campaign, when sleaze comes from someone capable of so much better (even if they still disagree on a point, but they manage to do that in an authentically respectful way, but no . . . ) - sleazy AND it's cheap as well . . . it just puts the fear of something in you when someone like them runs for President.

77. That move really flummoxed me. Those staffers were

GOP "true believers." Probably many didn't even like Romney all that mcuh but were willing to bite the bullet and work and campaign hard for him, just because he was the GOP standard-bearer.

Stranding them like that within just a few minutes of the concession speech was such a d*ck move that I bet Romney caused some of them to begin to think about switching to the liberal side.

At least I hope so. But so many of the GOP's followers are so habitated to working and voting against their own best interests that I can't count on their being that rational, even after getting stranded so late at night without cab fare.

It's obvious he doesn't give a rat's ass about what anyone thinks, Not his customers, workers or the people who invested in his venture.

Since I don't peruse the Freeper cesspool, I had no idea that it was their saying.'

Of course, in 2008 as mentioned above, they were truly screwn and deserved it after putting up that racist/rightwing religionist tag team for the office of POTUS and VP.

On edit:
The glossary entry for "screwn" says it came from a FR post in 2006, not 2008. I think it links to that FR post, too--at least it does quote the post.

Thanks for the link, it answers some questions I had. Maybe it should be posted in Welcome & Help, for newbies. And about the chicken wars and other such things might would be helpful.

When I find a thread and don't know the history between the posters, I appreciate when someone kindly tells me that the crosstalk is between some old adversaries.

I trash the thread, having been told to FOAD when answering as if it was just a question and not a clique thing. Best to avoid the emotional minefields that others have been treading on for years.

63. The Whole Market Has Lost 70% of It's Valuation?

Really? 70%. The Dow is down to 3000? Really?

You're completely wrong, and the poster who replied to is as well.

You can, in absolute fact, pick an individual stock for examination when it is performing in a statistically aberrative fashion compared to the market as a whole. Any analyst who didn't do that would be out of work in very short order.

The total valuation of that stock is not enough to be the cause to the effect of overall market drop. So, this is an independent effect which can then be examined for assignable causes.

You can disagree with the conclusion of the OP as to the nature of those assignable causes, but you can't dismiss the OP with your current contention.

That subhuman son of a bitch lives in a giant mansion, while not feeling bothered to give his employees a living wage or health insurance.

IIRC, the actual cost for health insurance for Papa John's was a nickel a pizza. Yes, $0.05. Not fourteen cents. Of course, he's gonna whine and moan, fire employees out of pique, and jack up costs by a buck to "pass the cost of Obamacare on to consumers."

These high and mighty rich who think their shit don't stink should get what they deserve for their political actions. They should stick to their business and stay out of politics, which is what Romney should have done.

So, personally, if this is accurate, he has lost $36,810,230.36 in stock value.

23. BTW, Forbes has a great article . . .

On how much it would cost Papa John's to pay for his employee's healthcare.

As it turns out, instead of 14 cents, based on Forbes calculations it would be
more like 3.4 to 4.6 cents per pizza, for a total cost of $5-8 million annually.

Here is the link to the article:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/calebmelby/2012/11/12/breaking-down-centi-millionaire-papa-john-schnatters-obamacare-math/

And he's personally lost over $36.8 M just in stock value.
This would have paid for 4-5 years worth of healthcare.

What an idiot!!!

I also hope they lose their best employees to competition that is now providing healthcare and their businesses suffer.

32. Ah! I love the smell of hubris in the morning!

How stupid does he think his customers are? Prices inch up constantly these days, but obviously we don't notice. When it's for a good cause (employee health care) THAT is a valid excuse.

37. Maybe that's why he said he had to fire employees.

He knew that after his political statement about his profits dropping his profits would drop and he'd have to cut back.

He skipped capitalism 101 in school.

41. I sold him a car once

He misrepresented his lease and tried to stick me with the overage. His wife treated me like a servant. I made $100 from my boss as a "spiff" since there was no commission for all the work I did (he's a "grinder", in the parlance of the trade).

His wife trains border collies and runs them around that plot of land in the castle grounds, so at least I got to see and pet some great dogs.

I have never eaten one of his pizzas, but I would expect that they'll be indistinguishable from wet cardboard in a dumpster outside a podiatrist's office.

I have to say it pleases me just a little to see his stock fall.

49. Lol

You aren't far wrong. I've ordered from Papa John's in the past and they aren't much better than cardboard circles with melted cheese on top.

I won't order from them again after this healthcare farce regarding his employees.

48. The $140 m loss is for stock holders. Unless the company holds 100% it isnt a loss for Papa John.

I would love this to affect Papa himself, but unless the boycott happens and continues, most likely the stock will rebound once the furor has died down.

52. Quarter billion dollar class action suit last week

Papa Johns sent unwanted text messages to millions of cell phones a couple years ago. The suit reached class action status last week, and investors are running for the door before the settlement is handed down.

I'm sure boycotts have cost the company some revenue, but investors don't react on ideals, and the boycott isn't costing PZZA anywhere near $250bil.

Still, CEO Schnatter isn't known these days for sound business decisions.

54. One of his competitors who offers full health coverage says this will help them compete!


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/papa-johns-obamacare-ians-pizza_n_2133050.html

Papa John's CEO John Schnatter’s recent statement that the Affordable Care Act will force the pizza chain to raise prices came as good news to Nick Martin.

Martin, a part owner of Ian’s Pizza, a pizza shop with four locations in Wisconsin, said his business has offered full heath care coverage to its 50 full-time employees for years, making it all the more difficult to compete with national chains like Papa John's that pay workers low wages without health benefits.

"This may level the playing field for us,” Martin said of the Papa John's price hike. “If they have to pay for benefits, and that pushes their prices up closer to ours, it will justify what we’ve been paying for and what we’ve been fighting to do the past few years.” (Ian's knows a bit about fighting, having fed demonstrators free slices during last year's protests in Madison.

67. Just there yesterday

Was in town when I read the HuffPo article so I stopped by Ian's for a slice. First time having it and the pizza was really great! I had pesto & portabello mushrooms followed by a november special of chicken pot pie.
The crust was really good and for me, that makes a pizza.

This is why anyone who uses business experience as criteria for holding office is a fucking idiot and deserving of a smack to the face.

73. ObamaCare will add 14¢ to the price of a pizza

How much will the drought from the summer add to the price of the cheese on the pizza?

Rising milk prices affect foods from pizza to nachos
by Eve Troeh
Marketplace for Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Extreme drought this summer meant higher prices to feed dairy cows, and now the U.S. faces the smallest dairy herd in almost a decade. That means higher milk prices, and not just for the kind you drink. Lots of types of food companies are affected, and the impact depends on the type of milk product they use. Mary Keough Ledman at the Daily Dairy Report told me about the four classes of milk:

Class 1 -- you drink
Class 2 --you spoon: yogurt, ice cream
Class 3 -- you cut: cheese
Class 4 -- butter and powder you can store forever

If you're a company that makes food with milk -- whether that's sour cream, soup or nacho cheese-flavored chips -- your costs go up along with milk prices. But the timing of when those higher prices hit depends on the product, says Keough Ledman. "Some of the more aged cheeses, like Parmesan, those cheeses were made nine months ago. It'll be longer to see the price increase."
