    I wouldn't become a believer unless this technology rolled over to cars and trucks and light rail.
    for those wanting a double in the restaurant sector take a look at Kona Grill (KONA).
    trading at 21 now but I see a double in 2-3 years.
    they have 26 restaurants nationwide and more to open this year and next. very low market cap so potential takeover target also.
    same with Rite Aid(RAD). easy money!

  • I think RAD hits 8.50 by Turkey day.
    in the meantime enjoy spring and summer!
    my other recommendation is KONA GRILL
    (KONA)- good food everyone take a look. there's 26 locations nationwide but more stores will be opening in the next few years. trading at 21 now but could double in 2-3 years.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Based on the valuation that Benihana went private at a few years ago in what was still somewhat slow restaurant spending, I'm thinking Kona Grill has a real chance to go a lot higher.
    my one year PT is 35 and looking 2-3 years out I would think 50 is possible.
    The restaurants here in Houston are packed and the food and service is good.
    This can easily be a 400 million market cap company in 3 years.
    maybe a bigger name makes a play for it as there aren't many traded companies in the American sushi arena.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • here are my thoughts

    There are many companies that I could think make a larger offer for Zales including Tiffanys, Macys, and a few other luxury retailers. the other could be private equity which could take Zales private while allowing it to make a full turnaround and then publicly listing it again in a few years at a much higher market cap.
    The higher it trades above 21, the greater the chance that this may happen because nobody wants to pay 22 dollars if the deal closes at 21. If the big mutual funds have not liquidated their shares yet they will be less inclined to do that now as it goes higher and more inclined to file more lawsuits.
    in my years of investing i've learned that the market price is a good indicator and obviously somebody knows something and is still buying in.
    my recommendation. Hold. i would not be surprised to see final closing deal price in the 23-25 range.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • To facilitate the deal SIG could raise buyout price to the 23-25 range.
    The longer zlc trades above 21, the better chance of this happening.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I like this company. Been following for years. I wouldn't rule a CVS or walgreens buyout either in the 12-15 range.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Merry Christmas to everybody long and shorts alike.
    I've done alot of analyzing and visited multiple malls here in Texas over the last couple months and I think Zales is in full turnaround mode. November and December sales numbers comes out in early January. This should propel Zales to new 52 week highs. I think 19 is possible with the release of these numbers and certainly 20 by the time earnings are out just after valentines.
    I see 2014 as being a strong year for Zales with more and more people getting engaged/married and mother's day sales should be strong also. My 6 month price target is $22 and my one year target is $28.
    looking 2-3 years out, i think it can easily reach $45-$50. With better credit agreement with Alliance zales is poised to recover and prosper.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • This will be my final post. My work here is done. Look for 18.50 before earnings on November 19th and it will gap open higher to around 21.5 that day. My year end target is 23 and two year target is 42.
    Good luck to longs!

    Take care and buy your sweetheart some zales jewelry this holiday season!

    after seeing what Potbelly did I think it's possible for GSVC to reach 22 on the day Twitter IPO comes out.
    I think there will be a huge move up right after October 17th and then it will hover near 20 just before the IPO opens. with as much uncertainty as there in washington right now and markets still not collapsing i expect when this is over we will see 16k on the dow sometime in the spring.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Based on my charting analysis and doing field work at various malls across Texas I'm thinking we can see 17 just before earnings in early November. Earnings are out earlier than usual so I expect good news and a much smaller loss than expected thereby propelling Zales over 20 right after earnings. Longerterm, I fully expect it to reach 25-28 by next summer and looking 2 years out(October 2015), my target is $40 based on possible store expansion and improving margins.

    Good luck to longs

    Some things once set in motion cannot be stopped. I was at the mall on Labor Day and I saw alot and I mean alot of people inside Zales. This stock is going back to 30 within 18 months.
    Look for a close above 14 this week.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I think earnings will be very good. HOV should see 6 by mid September. I'm buying 100,000 more shares at the open today.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • After visiting several Zales stores here in Texas and analyzing past data here are my new price targets;
    $15 by late October
    $18 right after earnings in November
    $20 by Valentines day

    Look for some very cool Zales commercials this year during NFL games starting in late November.
    Yes and for all who have never seen Back to the Future(1985) go ahead and watch it and you will see the bench clearly signed Zales!

    Good luck to longs

    P.s. I like the shorts. When they cover they drive the price higher :)

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • economy is rapidly improving and here in Texas Brighton homes is doing very well with new construction ongoing and popping up everywhere.
    Look for 8 by early January 2014.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Zales is in full turnaround mode.
    Look for 12 after earnings next month and 15 right after earnings in November.
    Check out Back to the Future part 1 where Marty and Jennifer are sitting on bench with Zales logo on it.
    It will endure as that movie was from 1985 and i see Zales back at 30 again by 2015.

    Good luck to longs

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • we are moving up from here.. 10 by early Spring

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I fully expect heavy mall traffic across America this summer and heading into the fall shopping season.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • We should be above 7 easily after earnings. I'm gonna add 100,000 more shares at the open on Tuesday.
    Look for 10 later this year.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • We are in full turnaround mode. Look for 10 in August and 12 in late November.
    Based on my analysis I think zales can triple in market cap in 18 months.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I think damage caused by hurricane sandy last year was very severe and that's gonna result in massive rebuilding in NJ where HOV is the number #1 home builder.
    Look for it to reach 6.30 Monday and then new muti year high after earnings.
    looking 12 months out, I think this stock will be around 10

    Sentiment: Buy
