    Sales have been going in the wrong direction due to their selling off stores to franchisees. It should lead to better margins and earnings...but WHEN? When do all of the reorganization/reimaging efforts of the last 3 years start to pay the benefits investors expect and crave? The upper management moves yesterday signal that things aren't going all that well. I think that that was becoming obvious. So management changes may help. I hope and expect so.

    Wendy's needs to seriously evaluate their store locations. In my area, the Detroit metro, Wendy's has a lot of awkward or outright lousy locations. There are countless buildings and shops that are now empty so it doesn't seem like it would be very difficult to find some better locations and close the underperformers. With interests rate so low and real estate prices steady, Wendy's could upgrade their store locations by selling a few of theirs (the underperformers) and moving up the street..."freshen up" some locations.

    Sentiment: Buy

    looks like a great company with some great fundies. But it has one fatal flaw that violates one of my primary rules, especially as this market gets toppy, and that is, that it carries too much debt. The debt to market cap ratio, for example, is a red flag. If interest rates rise, companies like this could get clobbered. The divvy could disappear. Stock could crash to $7. That divvy looks so enticing, but their debt-load is just too much for me. The tape indicates a run here and now, but I'm not convinced that the 6-year market run isn't about to take a prolonged breather. Therefor, taking on only companies with low debt ratios.
