New to the board. Just ordered a pound of brisket and a pound of pulled pork at a local Famous Dave's last night, did the same at a local Dickie's BBQ. Had to do a comparison test, as two people in our house preferred Dickie's, my two son's were on the fence and my wife (thought) she preferred Famous Dave's. Famous Dave brisket was a joke. Pressed meat with a ring of inedible fat, tasteless. We threw it out, my wife wouldn't even let me give it to the dogs. For this, they charge 17.49/lb. ! If I had been in the restaurant, i would have asked for a refund, rather than send it back; the quality of the meat is so poor there is no redemption for it. Made me think of shorting the stock. I know it trades thin volume but what do you think of the current price as an entry point ? And do you think this is a legitimate enough reason to short it ? I know their finances are not the greatest, either. We will never return to a Famous Dave's, the only thing that was any good were their corn muffins and that is not enough reason to return. Ingredient quality today is extremely important and their product SUCKS ! Thanks.
Is this a short sellers thread? The food is terrible, service sucks, other places are better, I'll never go there again. Please short some more, with the addition of more restaurants to come, you and others will propel this stock onward and upward in the next year!
Actually, looking at the price action of DAVE over the past few months, this is probably not the best short candidate. It doesn't seem to fall below 8 too often. However, given that they have only 2m available cash and 24m debt and with deteriorating profit margins (more like mounting losses), it should be a candidate to fall precipitously. Anyone here know what form their debt is, bank or corporate ? I can't seem to find any DAVE corporate debt out there so I assume its bank debt. Any help appreciated.
