    Motley Fool Recommends Sonic

    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.
