The p/e seems a bit high with there growth forcase. I think jack,s share price will move up or down based on the price of gas at the pump. If it gets up to $5.00 bucks in CAlif. the little guy who drives thru jack,s will not have the extra cash to spend. I do think with time they will be making a lot of profits with Qdoba. If they control most of the units and do a spin off and can get any value close to chipotle. What a winner that would be. I questioned people who where eating at qdoba how they like the food and they said they liked it better then chipotle.
Qdoba will help the E in PE a LOT. This will get interesting. Gas is a concern, but that is why their guidance was VERY conservative (gas?). I think that will be addressed soon, too much at stake for the over all economy and world economy.
