They beat on rev's too. The number was very good. Should wait until after the conference call before calling a direction tomorrow but on the surface it looks like a pretty good report. One reason I never bought BWLD stock is because when I went there, the whole place felt uncomfortable and the service was lousy. Servers could care less whether you came or not and sorta acted like I was cutting into there chatting time by showing up. The so called "captains" were not any help at all. BLWD are just incredibly poorly managed. Servers don't know what they are doing and spend more time talking to each other then serving. If you go to TXRH the experience is quite different. They actually try to meet the needs of their customers. I have had complaints two times with TXRH in about 40 visits and received personal calls from the manager as a result of my concerns. I wonder how many of these analysts actually visit the restaurants before they write their recommendations.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
There results have been mixed. They were right about Valeant however, they apparently closed out their short position before the big drop. They have been wrong about TSLA. There negative calls on MBLY look more like desperation then anything else.
If anything he has a ton of rich enemies. I can think of at least a couple of billionaires that would like to inflict pain on Bill. I can see them piling in on short positions on poor Bill and making him puke up his shares.
That Cramer interview was so lame. JC looked surprised that Apple was on the decline. It was a deer in the headlight moment. Cook looked more clueless then I have ever seen him. Nothing in the interview convinced me to run out and buy the stock.
