    My Visit To Panera - Memorial Day

    "this is the next Starbucks if you ask me..."

    -- That should scare the living daylights out of you!!! SBUX's accounting is scary beyond belief (have you looked at a 10K or any financial within the last 5 years)?!? If not, so so....Or really, don't. Some people actually don't really want to know of what they invest in (not me).....Good luck to all....

    -- Don't you also realize that there is a host of investors that feel the same way you do, and have already bid the value to reflect these feelings??!? Where's the benefit (except momentum and 'Greater Fool' games) AT THIS VALUATION?!?

    • Clearly I wasn't talking about Accounting and Financial Statements. When I speak of the next Starbucks, I speak of Panera in the Operational sense.....

      A) Very accessible outlets
      B) High traffic locations
      C) Quality product with recognizable brand and image.
      D) Fresh Food Fast (2003 Buzz-Phrase)
      E) Good average basket size
      F) Low Overhead
      G) Room to expand

      Yeah, sounds like a big problem to me. I gotta tell you buddy, this thing is a winner. I wish I'd been smart enough to smell SBUX after the first 2:1 split in '94. I'm not missing the boat this time.

      • You actually came to the same conclusion (regarding Starbucks) as I did approximately 2 years ago. Just never thought the Mighty Mo'Momentum idiots would have taken it this far!!

        "I gotta tell you buddy, this thing is a winner. I wish I'd been smart enough to smell SBUX after the first 2:1 split in '94. I'm not missing the boat this time."

        -- Your statement is both fascinating and loaded (IMHO). Most undisciplined investors tend to project past returns on to future ones. The 'pain of regret' at missing SBUX the first time just may thus allow you to participate in your 'Stalingrad.' Not saying it WILL mind you (since I also think PNRA runs a good operation), but the ODDS definitely point that way. The key IMO is that PNRA's price moves HAVE BEEN phenomenal. Doesn't necessarily mean one getting in the stock today won't be there for the next 'Big Kahuna move,' just the ODDS IMHO are against it. We'll see. Wish you luck (you'll need it). Good luck to all....
