Sonic Corporation (SONC) Message Board

    i would buy mcdonalds.

    the prices of the two companies are almost the
    same. with mcdonalds stock you can sleep at night. with
    sonic, i would be worried. sonic broke 30 today-so what?
    as i said before, i think sonic is not a good long
    term buy. the food may taste better than competitors,
    but the bottom line is making money. look at amazon.
    good buys, good service, and no hope for profit.

    • He pops his sorry ass around here every time the
      stock is down a buck on the day and then hides when it
      picks up a buck and a half the next day. A few weeks
      ago he was sneering at SONC vs. MCD, saying MCD was a
      far better play. So far he's been proven wrong, and
      I'd expect his future telling will not improve as
      time passes...

    • Sonic needs Barry Switzer for a spokesman.
      Switzer is one of the greatest minds to coach the game of
      football and his name would bring instant cache to the
      Sonic corp. Five national championships and a Super
      Bowl ring is enough proof that Switzer can make it
      happen. Someone in the marketing department needs to
      contact Barry and let him know what an asset he could be.
      Barry rules! Barry is what could make this stock move.

    • not only SHORT . . . he's an IDIOT! (and his mom dresses him funny)

    • donut man: no need to be scared. I do not think
      it will go to $10 overnight. Of course, all bets are
      off it fidelty or t.rowe price sell their shares.
      They have so many shares that it would not be in their
      best interest to sell all at once. I think the
      extremely hot weather will have a big negative on earnings.
      Also, if they go nationwide with the breakfast menu, i
      think it will cost sonic net income in the quarter.
      There are big risks with expanding to a breakfast menu.
      I thinks sonic should have saved their money
      instead of buying their shares. There is also too much
      insider selling. I don't wish anyone any losses in
      stocks, because i know the feeling. Well, as i said
      before, it is hard to compete with mcdonalds. If burger
      king is sold again, they might wake up and there you
      would have more competition.

    • The bottom line is making money, look at Amazon?
      Sonic makes money, a ton of it, at excellent annual
      growth rates. There is absolutely no comparison to

      Sonic has higher earnings per share and a higher growth
      rate. That my friend would indicate SONC is a better
      buy at $30 than MCD is at $32.

      • i am glad you put the prices of the two stocks in
        your message. we shall see in the long run who is
        correct. sonic spent 50 million buying 2 million of its
        own shares. the money could have used to pay off its
        entire long term debt if my figures are correct. if you
        run into hard times, sonic will need money to
        survive. if sonic goes ahead with the breakfast menu
        nationwide, the earnings could be hurt. it is amazing what
        new menu boards, training, advertising, and some
        bacon and eggs will cost. it could run into the
        millions. if the breakfast menu fails it will turn
        customers off for lunch and dinner. too often, management
        takes their eye off their main money maker.
