  • I eat at Panera more than I do any other restaurant. I can go there for breakfast, grab a bagel or scone and a coffee before work. For lunch it's a great option (ate lunch there today, Tomato/Mozzarella panini is great with kettle chips and love their unsweetened acai tea or hibiscus tea which I can't find anywhere other than Panera). For dinner there are soup, salad, and pasta choices. Everything is freshly prepared and I can get in and out quick. So why is the market cap of this company only 4.56 billion? Compare this to say Chipotle which has a market cap of 19.10 billion or almost 4.2X the market cap of Panera and doesn't even have breakfast (as far as I know). I go to Panera a lot, I almost never go to Chiptole as I prefer Rubios (awesome fish tacos, Chipotle does not have fish tacos), Moe's (like Chipotle but better and off the cuff awesome queso), and Del Taco (best prices of the burrito chains and they also have good fish tacos which did I mention Chipotle does not have?). So with a plethora of similar choices that I like better, Chiptole almost never gets a visit from me. However, Panera I eat at all the time as there is no place like it. It is nothing like the other sandwich places which pretty much just offer subs. Plus the great thing about Panera is that unlike a sit down restaurant, it is affordable so I could eat there often, and unlike a greasy fast food restaurant, I am always pleased by the quality and healthiness of the food at Panera. So why such a low market cap compared to Chipotle?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The best thing I like about my IPhone 5C is the cool bright green color. With the see through polka-dot blue case it is a real looker and really stands out in the world of plain not very attractive metal phones. It looks like the new IPhone will just be available in the not very attractive metal colors like silver, gray, gold. Are there plans to make it available in multi-colors like the 5C or do I need to wait until the IPhone 7 comes out? It seems obvious that you would make it in more colors to appeal to more people. I mean how hard is it to have different colors? Until then I will keep my shiny green IPhone 5C which IMHO is the best looking IPhone to date.

  • I noticed I hardly ever use my IPhone 5C to actually call or talk to someone on the phone. Here are my top 5 uses recently in terms of time spent. #1) Addictive Games (Clash of Clans/Boom Beach/Minion Rush) especially the first two, I mean anyone who has played Clash of Clans or Boom Beach knows how addictive these are. #2) Texting #3) Web Searching/surfing (Google/Yahoo) #4) Social Networking (Twitter/FourSquare/Swarm) #5) A toss up between Camera/Calculator/Weather I Phone features.
