  • The Aliso Viejo On the Border was closed. The food was good, but I guess volume wasn't enough. This is a really good location providing most of the restaurants for the entire city - not much competition and was the only Mexican restaurant in the area. The Chili's in the same center is awful (the food) and the Macaroni Grill isn't very good and is slow. If they can't be successful in this affluent area with little competition, how are they doing elsewhere?

  • A break of $54.29 could move it up to $63.41 in short term. Got upgraded to strong buy at stoxline.

  • Earnings per share: $2.26 for yr ended June 2014 vs $2.20 in 2013 (almost no growth)
    PE = 23x (why?)

    Book Value: $63 million at June 2014 vs. $149 million at June 2013
    Tangible BV: -$89 million at June 2014 vs. -$3 million at June 2013
    Market Cap = $3.3 billion (why?)

    Expected free cash flow $180 - $190. (again how does this justify $3.3 billion market cap?)

    Answer: Company keeps the market cap inflated by borrowing money to pay dividends and buy back stock. Not a good business model. The big boys won't hold forever.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Curious who's buying near 52 week highs when the market is looking into the abyss, and EAT is more than fully valued.

  • Don't understand the price up here...PE is too high and lot's of insider selling at around $50.

  • Micro-cap stock, PURE Bioscience (PURE) is REVOLUTIONIZING FOOD SAFETY AND PUBLIC SAFETY with their heavily patented “SDC” that SAFELY ELIMINATES DANGEROUS PATHOGENS such as E. COLI, SALMONELLA, NOROVIRUS, INFLUENZA, HIV, MRSA and many others. SDC will also SAFELY decontaminate all BRINKER restaurants making them germ free for their customers.

    Each year, 48 million food borne illnesses from contaminated foods result in over $50 billion in losses from 128,000 hospitalizations, 3,000 deaths and very costly food recalls and lawsuits.

    SDC is the ONLY EFFECTIVE SOLUTION that will save stores like BRINKER millions of dollars and significantly increase sales by solving the very costly food recall problem and related lawsuits as well as making their stores safer for their customers.

    SDC has already been successfully tested in hundreds of restaurants and the results were over 90% BETTER THAN ALL OTHER METHODS. A large restaurant chain is expected to begin ordering substantial and ongoing quantities in the next 60 days.

    Food processors will be using SDC as soon as it is approved to decontaminate produce and meat. Another benefit is that SDC extends shelf life by reducing harmful bacteria and also reduces manufacturing costs significantly.

    PURE Bioscience SDC is expected to dominate the multi-billion dollar food safety business because there is no product that can match what SDC does and do it safely.

    SDC will also dominate antimicrobials in hospitals, schools, homes, offices, markets, public places, cruise ships, airplanes, trains, personal products like soaps and everywhere the public gathers.

    SDC is perfectly safe and it continues to kill pathogens for 24 hours after it has been sprayed or wiped on a surface. The EPA ranks SDC with their safest rating of Category IV.

    PURE will benefit BRINKER IMMENSELY and at only $1.20 per share, PURE will likely be one of the best performers in many portfolios.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Not promotion, just real research.
