Reeds lost its fizz today down, 6.38% at $4.26. The non-alcoholic beverage company saw its shares go flat after releasing its 2012 full year earnings. Reeds showed some improvement with revenues increasing 20% to $30 million. However, the company was still unable to turn a profit and ultimately announced a net loss of $524,000 for the year. Reeds CFO James Linesch said, "Our fourth quarter losses were primarily due to continued production challenges on our kombucha, resulting in higher unallocated plant costs, and to lighter than expected private label revenues from one customer." Reeds has fallen from its 52-week high of $8.82.
