The 'plant and equipment' on the balance sheet are losing value daily.
Both by depletion and price collapse and the constant expense load of upper management in Houston.
It's a pathetic business model, but hey, even Texas bankers can be duped into making loans to this industry.
When the parasitic lawyers pounce, you know a $14.10 bottom has been achieved. Margin call Matilda has also completed her rounds. Cilantro chicken and guac are coming East!
You short sighted twit. The have less than 20 locations in Texas alone. Ten years from now LOCO will have over 1500 locations and will be moving into Canada, Caribbean, China, and Europe. They will also serve breakfast eggs....the other end of the crazy chicken. Profit per share $7.50 X 20 PE = $150 stock. Try getting that out of T-bills or the local credit union offering 0.02% annual interest.
then change the name to Permian Oil Co. Stop pretending that the other locations matter, before oil goes into the $20 barrel range because of Iran mega-supply.
WMT and URBN reported weak numbers. APP is gasping for cash. Your malls are floating on FED levitation clouds.
I thought the plum LOCO business model was to put one LOCO within the 27.3 mile shadow radius of every CMG ? no ?
The problem is stock market capitalization per store. LOCO remains elevated even in the $15s. It will takes YEARS before this stock grows into it's pants, so to speak.
Steak N Shake has over 500 locations via Biglari Holdings ticker BH. You don't have to be plum loco your entire investing lives.
the hard ways. LOL
What happens when the hedges wear off and you face the reality of $43 per barrel oil, or less ? One does not need a petroleum engineering degree to understand this industry. Borrow, drill, deplete, hedge at bottom, borrow more or dilute, lose money, pray for higher prices, rinse and repeat.
Everything is fine at the mall, just as Kohls.
Anyone notice that the Simons borrowed another Billion dollars from Janet Yellens punch bowl brew recently ?
