    • Interesting that you should hope that I sold.

      Actually, I wrote the November 55 calls for 4.80. If the stock goes way up (unlikely IMO), I still have a rate of return of over 50% (annualized) on the investment. If it goes back down, I get to keep my option proceeds. On a cash on cash basis, the call premium alone is at nearly a 30% rate. I'm happy with that.

      i do not think there is much downside risk beyond 50.

    • Guidance in the earnings p/r was systemwide comp sales growth of 8.3% to 8.8%.

      Given that the release date was Aug 9th, which corresponds exactly to the end of the comp store period, I would guess that management had a pretty good handle on company store comps, which turned out to be 8.2%. This implies (assuming guidance wasn't lowballed) that franchisee comps were expected to be 8.5% to 9.0%. Given that franchisee comps were 9.1% and using the implied midpoint of franchisee comps, it looks like the outperformance was about 0.35% for franchisees.

      What does a 0.35% outperformance for franchisees mean to the bottom line of pnra (assuming they can sustain it for the whole quarter)?

      Franchise royalties and fees were $12.1 million during the last quarter. 0.35% of $12.1 million


      pre-tax net income will be $42,350 higher than what would be inferred by the Aug 9 p/r.

      After tax, this is about $27,500.

      With about 30 million shares outstanding, this represents a little less than 0.1 cents in eps.

    • yeah right, gas is sooo expensive I am going to start only hitting up McDonalds for lunch on tuesdays and fridays for the dollar nuggets and fish sands.
