Don't you think it's time to look past this
temporary operations glitch and move on. It's old news.
Look at post numbers 1726 and 1727 that were written
two weeks before the company announcement on 8/27.
Time to look forward. I'm glad to see that both Dave
and Buster have picked up 20,000 more shares each
since that time. It's always good to see insiders
buying. If they're keeping secrets, then why are they
buying? It's because the stock is extremely
As for the company repurchase of shares, there is no
mention that the stock will be retired. They may sell the
stock later in the open market after the price has
risen, which it will, to fund the expansion of new
In a day or two, we should get the number of short
sales outstanding. Personally, I think this will be a
key number. There were 500k shares shorted before the
earnings announcement. We'll see how much actual selling
was done and how much short selling was done. All the
shorts will have to cover at some point.
Just a thought.This stock could start moving up
but unless there is some compelling news or unless
some analyst is really ready to come out strong could
be stuck in a range ...I suspect value funds will
start accumulating.Growth fund managers will probally
take a wait and see attitude.Any one can love this
stock but you have to admit it was an ugly performer
this quarter.Therefore many managers will avoid for
now as they don't want to be caught holding a
percieved loser when the 3rd quarter ends.If you read Mr
Couch Potatoe's last post to me about once burn't twice
shy the same can be said about fund managers.It will
be interesting to see which funds are holding this
puppy at the end of the third quarter.I have to admit
this stock is much more interesting to me than several
days ago I may nibble soon.Good luck!
warm my heart about this stock.
believe for a minute that it happened, but if it did . .
. . Yeah, their lawyers would never let them
breathe a word of it unless they were willing to air
their dirty laundry in court . . . . But once they
cleaned up the mess, earnings and growth would be right
back to where they were 3 weeks ago.
a happy ending -- that would be quicker to fix than
salaries, operational expenses, and depreciation. Those
could take several months.
I can see it now .....Dave and Buster's The True
Story! Alright hold on here.I'm not saying you guys and
gals with the conspiracy theories are wrong ...heck if
I know.....but I personally expect something a
little less sinnister. The report was dissapointing in
what it didn't say but I really expected as much. I
personally think management is a little inexperienced in
dealing with bad news and rather than candidly address
the issues they got caught talking out both sides of
their mouths.Hopefully they will learn and issue a
candid statement and put speculation to rest. Double
talk will kill you on Wall Street everey time.

I talked to a number of employees to try to
determine what had happened. It appears there are a number
of new employees. Could not determine if these were
replacements for cause or not. Management has to level with
the world on what exactly happened. The employees do
not seem to want to talk about it. There seems to be
an increase in the number and location of security
From the cagey answers I received and the
negative body language, I lean toward sticky fingers and
not just at this location. If managemnet is reading
this they have to respond with the truth because
rumors will only build and reasons in the absence of
facts will only get wilder as time goes on. If criminal
