Energy prices are moving down, therefore Sonic should see some margin growth this quarter. This company has everything an investor is looking for: Top line growth; same store sales growth; bottom line growth; potential for margin growth this quarter and goinng forward; and good corporate governance. What's there not to like?
Here's the excerpt from the Motley Fool Recommendation:
And Sonic's (Nasdaq: SONC - News) beaten-down stock, backed by more than 3,000 high-performance units, is tasting as good as its Cherry-Limeade.
Sonic saw comparable same-store sales increase a stout 4.4% in the fourth quarter. Strong comps and an increase of 175 drive-in units over fiscal 2005 led to 13% top-line growth in the most recent period, matched by 13% net income growth.
One concern: Higher energy costs lowered Sonic's operating margins from 26% to 21.8% year over year. Going into next year, the company expects these costs to be offset by softening commodities prices, which should help stabilize margins.
not unless they claim to be super stock pickers and sell hype to people and only find one every once in a great while. you can try to turn this back on me all you want.i don't really care , that does not change my opinion. MOTLEY FOOLS ARE JUST THAT== FOOLS.
