Jones Soda ( JSDA) Company Profile: Jones Soda produces and distributes a range of premium beverages and related products in the U.S. and Canada. Current Share Price: $1.23 (Jan. 6) 2010 Share Price Gain: 153% Comeback Story: Jones Soda initially gained popularity thanks to an offering of unusual flavors of soda, including blue bubble gum, red apple and crushed melon. The company boasted its strong distribution network, as its beverages were available in Wal-Mart ( WMT), Starbucks ( SBUX), Target ( TGT) and Safeway ( SWY). The popularity of Jones Soda pushed its stock to nearly $30 in early 2007, although an epic collapse dropped the share price to 30 cents by the end of 2008. Making matters worse, the company accepted a take-under deal from fellow beverage producer Reed's ( REED) in March 2010. The deal, which valued shares of Jones Soda at roughly 37 cents, was later scrapped, and a series of retail deals with Wal-Mart and Target helped the stock rebound modestly.
