    HEY I KNOW WHERE CEO GANNON IS!!

    He went to J-I-B and got one of those e.coli infested jumbo jacks and is now sick and can't come online and talk about it.

    • take a drive from Las Vegas to S. California and
      take a look at the number of restaurtants being built
      and the hordes of people eating those flipped
      hamburgers and returning for more, look at the expansion of
      business, look at the advertising campaigns, look at the
      profits, look at the reduction in debt, resolution of
      liabilities, and PE ratio on this stock THEN make a decision
      on this stock. STOP wasting your time listening to
      contamination fears to make an excellent investment decision -
      to buy this stock at incredible discounted price.

    • Never, never will I eat a JIB burger. If I have
      to have JIB I have taco or chkn strip. I do not
      think their cooking procedure is right. It is manually
      done and the worker flips it whenever the worker wants
      to flip it.

    • My guess is that the stock will stay flat or
      decline. If not making its move now, when.......4th or 1st
      quarters, less volume, less revenue. Competition is heating
      up and Jack is starting to stall. I don't think the
      "outbreak" thing hurts them anymore.......but, I believe it
      devalued the stock to a good price; giving all a buying
      opportunity. Now its back as far as it will get.

    • <<consistent with memos and numerous alerts
      received by health
      departments throughout the
      country>>>
      Strange, FM does not have stores throughout most of the
      country.

      They don't......but the outbreak effected every player
      in the restaurant industry!

      Their lack of
      responsibility and follow up caused many parents to cast concern
      on every dining experience. Health departments
      across the country fielded calls asking if this was a
      "Beef" epidemic. Anytime 2 or more reported cases
      involve illness from a consistent source....the CDC in
      ALtanta considers it a potential health alert or
      outbreak......and the communication begins.

      It didn't take
      long for CDC and other supporting agencies to
      determine "cooking procedures" at Jack In The Box
      restaurants were the cause for this outbreak. We immediately
      took action to make sure everyone was aware of this;
      and if they too were not cooking beef properly, make
      quick changes.

      BTW, there was a quote from an
      agency that said, "we did everything but deliver the
      written notice on these violations on a silver platter,
      yet no corrective action was taken"

      In
      closing, I'll take your advise and eat a
      dougnut......that'l be a jelly!

    • Then why are you wasting time doing exactly that.
      Apparently you don't hate to do it.

      Also, quoting
      Inside Edition on something like this is like asking the
      Vatican Daily about abortion clinics. Shows like this
      like to dig up dirt, use half quotes and basically
      exist to sell advertising. Didn't you follow the story
      about nerve gas used against Americans?

      Do
      everyone a favor and avoid what you say you
      hate...rehashing the past.

      ------
      On the more
      interesting question of what is happening in the
      market...

      Yeah, there is very heavy volume. Hopefully this is
      building a base for an upward move in the near future.
      There are a lot of heavy trades between 13 7/8 and 14
      1/4. Not a bad day in a down market.

      Really

      <<TV Show Inside Edition made it real clear what the
      circumstances were.>> Nice, cheesey TV shows provides
      data
      for a health inspector. Sit down and eat another
      doughnut, Homer.

    • I hate to rehash old news, but in defense of
      Pietro who made claims about Jack In The Box, they
      appear to be consistent with memos and numerous alerts
      received by health departments throughout the country.
      Also, a report done by a TV Show Inside Edition made it
      real clear what the circumstances were. I will try to
      get transcipts and post if you would like. I don't
      think JITB would have any case against that poster, the
      facts as posted. appear to be valid.

    • no, no, not that kind of hobby...
