Don't try and take advantage of the naive like the
gentleman from Utah.
IT is not a theme restaurant.
guess video games, and pool with a restaurant is a
theme? Tell to the pool hall.
D&B's is the first
of its type just like Outback Steakhouse & Chilis.
I know a lot about the restaurant business, and
the "themed" restaurant business in general.
Considering D&B's "theme" and its clientele base, I stand by
my statement that the weather was a very weak
excuse. There had to be other problems...
Thanks for your input and I think you have some
very valid points. If you are not familiar with
restaurant operations I would invite you to read the Motley
Fool article for Aug 27. I know there are certain
times restaurants do well and times when their sales
are lean. In a down economy, sales are up, during
incliment weather, sales are up, when disasters strike,
sales are up. During the summer season, restaurants as
a whole experience a downward trend in sales. I
believe this is a good stock which has real potential,
however we all realize the numbers have been missed.
There is no reason to throw out the baby with the bath
water. I have never visited one of their locations so I
can't comment on their service or food, I can only go
by what posters have said and they are positive. I
do know this with each location doing on an average
of almost $1M per month in business they are doing
something right. True, we have not seen the jump we wanted,
but it will recover. Thanks...GOD Bless
You said "D&B's stock did the SAME thing last
Gee, wasn't that in October when PRACTICALLY EVERY
STOCK GOT KILLED AND IT WAS THE BEST BUYERS MARKET IN
Sorry Jack. This ain't the same.
They blame slow sales on the weather? My 18 year
old son says "dad, I'm not going to D&B's tonight
because it's too nice. I think I'll just hang out in the
front yard tonight."
They have been around since
1981 and only have about twenty locations. If this was
such an explosive concept I gaurantee they would have
built a lot more than 20 locations in 18 years. I live
in DFW where they started and have seen it all.
I believe that DAB is undervalued at the current
price. I am going to be buying as much as I can on every
dip, because the next quarter should be a good one. I
am betting my money that we will see $20 before
Good Luck to DAB Longs. If you are short
DAB, you had better cover soon. IMHO!
Been to DAB once in St. Louis...have a very small
amount stock...want to get enthused about long term
growth and buy some
1. Have some contests for prizes...e.g. every
Thursday have a
contest on one of the machines...give
the high score a
card for free games or a free
2. Have a pool exhibition/tourney...get some young
quality pool players from around the area in
Sat. afternoons. Maybe pay a shark and say
who beats him/her gets a free
3. Get those electronic trivia games in all the bars
game areas...I mean the kind so that you can
against others...I could really see people
locations competing against one
Just some ideas....any comments...I've got some more
