    stock price increases

    Although CEC is down today so far, I still love it. The price earnings growth ratio is about 1, compared with more than 1.5 for industry average and 1.68 for S & P 500. It has made earnings each of the last 5 years---a nice comfort for investors who want a great small cap stock with less rocky ride than profitless tech stocks. According to Yahoo Finance, its earnings growth over the next five years is estimated at 20% per year. That is above the predictions for restaurant industry average and S & P 500 average.
    Uncomfortable doing your own analysis? Don't take my advice but check out Forbes list of 200 best small companies in US (CEC was on the list in Nov. 2001) or see if CEC's president recently bought over $1,000,000 of CEC stock (he did, on about 11/16/01).
    This may answer the question posed on this board as to why CEC's stock price has been up recently.
