    Everybody settle down

    It was a value play back in the $3s. Looks like you and I have both been in this stock from about the same time ... 2009 or so. I agree to a point. Except now it's a growth stock. The value phase took some 3 years to play out. The growth phase will similarly take about 3-4 years to play out, so I think this is still a good solid play -- but for a slightly different reason now. Calling it a momentum play, to me, suggests a run that is not driven by improving fundamentals (sales, profitability)... PE expansion, etc. I dont think that is the case here at all. I also partly agree with you on the tax thing. That has to be looked at in terms of valuation as just that... an asset. Sort of think of it as contributing to net cash in a way.

    • You are both correct...

      It WAS a VALUE play 4 years ago. It is NOW a NEW GROWTH Play.

      This quote somes it up and is SPOT on!

      Wall Street likes a good deal (Value Play at $3)...

      But it REALLY LOVES a GROWTH PLAY!

      And KKD is now - a NEW Growth Play! And when comparing to peers it is STILL a VALUE play.

      Just look at the Tim Hortons Comps, The Starbucks Comps, The Dunkin Donuts Comps, The Peets Takeover, The Teavana Takeover.

      KKD is still undervalued to the tune of 35% to 60% when compared to the others.
