    jack got issues-- stop the pie -in -the-sky silliness

    i am not short. in fact jack could move much higher but not with current management imo.
    trades in a narrow range but you are wasting capital that could be MAKING money elsewhere.

    • Where all ears as to where we are going to make money with your picks. I gave you a few I was long over the weekend and you can see how they have be doing (HPS) (HPI) (HTD) where just a few and have a nice monthly payout. I could see a hedge fund short out of Boca Raton. But if you have any money why would you live in PA. When you could live the good life in Calif.

      • have you been to pa? one of the most scenic areas in the country.
        btw i lived in two places in ca including la jolla near fay st.
        however i am often in the caymens thanks to my envialbe track record.
        your picks since posting have done nothing yet....
        if you look at jack's 10 yr avg annual return you begin to understand. if you like mexican food chipolte has been a beter investment. you are in boring co like ken fisher who owns 4% of co.
        the tout of jack has been going on for a long time now yielding no results. so if it does go up 5 pts from here it has to be measured with how long you have held which will bring the annual avg return down to loser levels...

    • Sometimes the best investments take a while to work out and this could be one of them. A little patience is needed. Not missing much as this market is hardly screaming on the upside. Agreed that management is not great but the story here is that if this management doesn't figure out a way to monetize Qdoba and JACK's real estate holdings soon, then, given its assets and cash flow, someone else will as the space is ripe for consolidation.

    • sorry bout the name change. previous user did not sign off.
