    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
