A blog that I read mainly for political views also makes some stock recommendations that have done quite well. It picked Jack as the Stock of the Month some months ago and has an update today with some rumors about Qdoba. I don't know how seriously to take them, but the stock has been doing very well of late. Take with a grain of salt, but who knows.
I know that you people claim to be Constitutionalists at the same time you claim Obama is not a Christian. The fact is, and this is not in dispute, the fact is that the very Constitution you claim to revere says there can be NO religious test for public office. So discussing this, violates the Constitution.
Last comment is nuts...Idiot we're not talking about Obama and the Quram..it's Qdoba a restaurant chain serving Mexican food; wholly owned by JACK...keep your politics,religion and ignorance off the board this is pure capitalism...dummie...
Yes, the pressure is mounting on JACK management. Fisher, Black Rock, Fidelity, Blue Harbor are sitting on huge blocks of stock and therefore have some leverage with management. They could just as easily encourage a private equity group to go after JACX, committing their shares upfront. But I suspect they would rather unlock that inherent value of Qdoba which, over the next several years, could actually probably tripple the value of their investment in JACK. The rationale, of course, is: why let the franchisees benefit from this expansion when it could be the company if adequately financed by an IPO in conjunction with a spin-off of Qdoba to JACK holders.
