Just started my research. I like what I see. Multiple qtrs. of growth and improvement. Each store is considerably more productive than DPZ. They are generating good cash and have a smart new leadership team. Lot's of opportunity for growth with some creativity, which I think Nigel is showing. Love the Superbowl promotion, which pushes people to find and learn about their web capabilities.
Peter Lynch was an advocate of placing a small order in a company that you are interested in. His belief is that until you do that, you never really follow a stock as seriously. I agree with him and that is where I am.
Yes, stock has doubled and it my not be SBUX, but if Nigel is 1/2, 1/4 or even 1/10 as successful, I'll still make good money.
Your handles student would have liked this stock. Surprised your not interested. Now, your handle would not have bought this stock, but the modified investing style of the student may have. In fact, you never know, he may be.
