Just arrived from eBay, and here's what it said
If you read the quarterly
carefully, you'll notice they had the exact same earnings as
last years 3rd quarter(Obviously they like 3rd
Also, It only makes sense that the company would show
increased gross revenue if they have opened more units
since the previous year. Since The Chicago blues club
opened with so many problems, it was bound to show
improved #'s(same store sales).
The long term
outlook for the stock price: My Crystal ball told me to
wait until I recieve my 8-ball from eBay.
stockholder, my expectations are -0- of seeing the stock going
on rocket ride. I purchased my shares for fun. I
bought after following the company for 2 years.
would enjoy making a profit w/ DAVE stock, but based on
current #'s, I'm not planning my retirement just yet. I
see the stock going to $20 per share right after a
1/10 reverse split(joke).
I think it's too soon to
judge Martin's performance at Dave's.
He does have
potential, but I hope he resolved his personal reason's for
leaving the business when he decided to leave
If corporate does indeed read these boards, it would
be nice to see them address the concerns of posters
and shareholders in the form of news releases, and
"forward looking statements" in their reports. (It's not a
good idea for corporate to respond directly to message
boards as it increases liability)
Yes, my memory is poor. I suffered a severe head
injury in the army 30 years ago. I was in a coma for 54
days, I woke up weighing 90 something pounds with
paralisis, complete amnesia,aphasia, more or less a complete
vegetable. So to make a long story short no matter what you
say or do my opinions and judgements are my own. Make
fun of them, criticize them, do whatever turns you
on. Today I drove up to Apple Valley then over to
Burnsville during lunch hour. AV had a small but sufficient
crowd. Burnsville was really doing fantastic. I had soup
and water at AV and ordered a meal to go at
Burnsville. I don't care all that much about any major
profits at the current restaurants, just so there is
enough to finance further growth. So you think FD is
another Boston Market. And FD will be closed in a couple
of years. I'm deffinitly a long termer with this
GO DAVE hutchjr
We have been over this a million times. If you
will keep reading you will see that I have told you in
detail my experience with this stock and where I got
out. Your memory is poor to say the least. Maybe that
is why you can stay positive on this stock. I bought
at 19 and got out around 10 on 50 shares and 6 on
the other 50 shares for a 57% loss on a 100 shares. I
know you are in at least at 6 and higher giving you a
loss of over 75%. You should be the bitter one. Just
because I have been negative on the stock since then does
not mean I am bitter. But you have heard all this
before, remember? Dave's posted positive earnings and for
that I say congratulations. But, they missed their
numbers and have taken on someone with a questionable
track record. Look at RAIN and PUBSF if you want to see
Martin's history. I have tried to relay my experiences to
this board as a voice of reason. I have said that I
don't like the food and I don't think the company will
make it. This does not mean, by any stretch of the
imagination, that I am right. But since I sold I have been
much more right than you.
Woah.... and behold..........this morning let's
say just for old times sake, I read some of the
earlier posts and found one,#167,which informs me as to
why you've always been so bitter toward this company.
It must really be a heavy load to bear. You bought
in at $19.00. Just for curiousity sake,have you
averaged out or did you just take an immediate loss. YOur
last post was directed to me
There was a conference call this week for
selected interested parties (not me), however, Heather
over at investor relations was nice enough to
summarize for me. Basically the Chicago club continues to
show steady improvement, several more restaurants will
open in Chicago, probably not in MPLS/STP, these would
be lodge style, like in Minnetonka, rather than
shack or blues club style, she also characterized Mr.
ODowd as upbeat for the long term. I also understand
they follow this thread and I asked perhaps for more
info from the company, or perhaps a presidents letter,
she promised to pass it on....
I have also heard the same numbers (.00-.06). The
question then remains what statment the company will make.
They have not made one since Martin came on
My 2 cents (hopefully 3!, that is my guess)is that
they will come out with yet another restructuring
plan! New management, new perspectives, equals new
plan! What that plan will be I am not sure. Does anyone
have a guess...or info....
Ez, it appears that there is more long interest
in dave today than there is in your perspective. Ate
at dave on Friday night and it was standing room
only-again. Have you been burned by the stock or are you just
shorting it? It's understandable that if you bought this
at the wrong time you'd be unhappy. Some of us
obviously believe that at $2.00 the risk is minimal and the
upside is excellent. Good luck to you.
I don't know what you are smoking but it sure
isn't the ribs! Dave's will never close it's
Dave has a superior product, quality service and is
curently doing better than most of the other resaurant
chains started around the same time.
By the end
of year 2000 Dave will be making a consistent
profit, which is more than I can say for some of the
current internet stocks people will loose out
Big news and NO RED are coming, get in now and make
Go Martin Go!
Take us to the promise
