SONO - Short notice earnings play due to BZ shenanigans

So earlier today I noticed a strange entry in the news feed for SONOS (SONO):

It was confusing because there was no context, but it seemed to indicate that SONOS was thought they should be valued at $21, which is exactly how an Algo would read that statement. Naturally SONO started dumping.

Now, thankfully BZ issued a correction, they actually meant to say that “SONO Group”, an EV company is planning to IPO at $21:

But the correction I think might have simply reinforced the prior statement in the eyes of our robotic friends as it’s continued lower as a result:

So the interesting bit comes in the fact that SONO has earnings tonight while currently being down >3%. Per earnings whispers they are expected to smash earnings and also expected to move higher based on previous reactions to good results:

Presents somewhat of an interesting opportunity. Took some gamble calls on it.

Also is the Algo not reacting to the lawsuit between google and Sonos ? Could this throw off earnings even if it’s good. Not a good look to be up against google

That news was over 20 hours ago though.

Could be late reaction …. I would assume algos are fluid and some movements take time to develop a decision?

Sonos is the plaintiff in that suit, the potential is greater to the upside for them.

Guys i am googling and finding that they might have supply chain issues. For me this could mean a guide down in Q4.

They definitely have supply chain issues. Found videos on twitter and tiktok mentioning wait times of 9 months to 1 year just for products.

Just looked at their product on Amazon - unavailable…most of the product but has good reviews

Ok, I went to brand:Sonos on Amazon and click on the speaker


It seems sets are unavailable and individual speakers available

Great call @Conqueror are you looking to sell right at open or wait for a runup towards 10am-ish? Might be some quick profit taking right at open I presume?
