FSYS will likely beat earnings estimates, but guidance will be weak. However, Wall Street is already expecting horrible guidance, so the impact on the stock will be non eventful. The market has already sold the rumor and will likely buy on the news, so we could get a rally especially if management decides to enact a share buy back.
All l they have to do, to juice up the bottom line is to eliminate their R&D commitment....that alone would drop $24 million to the bottom line, raising 2014 estimates from 24 cents to $1.24...
Kevin Douglas has over $25 million of his own hard earned money invested in FSYS. He has not sold a single share. Surely if FSYS was in as bad as shape as you claim, he would of already exited his position. After all, he didn't become a billionaire doing stupid things. The point is, he has enough clout to force the company to focus on shareholder enhancement.
LUB will have the ultimate excuse when they report their second quarter earnings on March 24th, and it won't be the dog ate their homework. It will be that the harsh winter conditions, kept many customers from venturing out to visit their eateries. Instead of same sort sales rising 1%, they will fall .8% This company's track record has always been highly inconsistent, with the preponderance leaning towards the negative side.
Don't be so negative. Be a glass half full guy, instead of glass half empty. This company displays some of the most bargain metrics on the Street. If you hone in on sales per share, cash per share, and price times book value, you won't find a better bargain.
could it be nepotism? board members earn about $100,000 per year in stock grants/ fees for attending about 8 meetings per year. Peter Tropoli is the step son of Board Member Frank Markantonis Esquire, who also serves as Luby's general counsel
(1) regulatory environment (2) foreign currency conversion headwinds (3) poor economy (4) high ng prices (5) asset impairments (6) higher costs of doing business (7) dog ate my homework (8) global warming
Well, in terms if how much he owns, it is a rather small percentage (about 5%). He still owns 1.6 million shares, so he has plenty of skin left in the game
could we see the stock lose 1/2 its value on Friday? One thing for sure, there is a floor built into the stock at about $5 per share, that's about how much net cash there is behind each share of stock.
Looks like we are getting another bout of hate selling this am. I guess most investors fear a huge debacle unfolding, when FSYS releases its earnings on Friday .Can't blame the "street" for its anxiety, as FSYS's track record has clearly been on the dismal side.
If you compare MCD with CMG, you could detect that CMG's forward multiple is too chinsy. MCD's is expected to see its earnings grow from $5.84 to $6.33 in 2015-that equates to a 8.3% rise. At its current share price, it is selling at 15.08 2015 estimates. On the other hand, CMG is expected to see its earnings grow in 2015 from $12.91 to $16.00, equating to a 23.9% growth rate. Its forward PE is just 37. On a side note, MCD does pay a 3.4% dividend yield, while CMG does not pay a dividend.
Since CMG's growth rate of 23.9% is just about three times higher than MCD's (23.9%/8.3%=2.87) shouldn#$%$ multiple also be three times higher? If that's the case, then CMG's forward PE should be at 45 rather than 37 (its PE deserves more expansion). if you do the math, a 45 multiple, times 2015 estimates of $16 computes a share price of $720
2nd quarter earnings are finally just about here. Hopefully management will elaborate during the conference call about its new culinary contract as well as its recent Combo openings and expansion plans for the balance of the year. These guys are way past due to dazzle us!
because you have to wait about 6-9 months before the deal actually closes,,you will get a couple dividends in the meantime
