    41% of what. The lower the percent, the less 41% of it is. Besides, GAAP earnings would be impressive, but it appears that you are referring to so called "growth" without earnings this year or next. Even CRM's CEO admitted he didn't expect earnings this year or next. I think his comment included 2017, as well as FY 2015 and FW 2016.

    Skip the slander accusations. Do a little math, such as division (regarding the % of shares shorted, which is solidly under 10%) and multiplication (regarding a 39 cents per share loss compared to a year ago when there was a 4 to 1 split after the comparable quarter last year). This is besides any dilution due to the addition of more shares for other reasons.

    Numbers matter.

    I'm posting this only to note that prior post 26 minutes ago wasn't listed. Will this be listed?

    Even a negative "article" that questions CRM's price after what is posted as a .39 loss gave a positive spin by not multiplying .39 by 4 when comparing that result to the 12 month prior quarterly report. I won't reply to digs about me or my post, but I wanted to share this comment and would appreciate seeing the comments of posters such as Tahoe_kj, and posters with such names similar to Nantucket, etc.. This has been a very good week, so far, including trading CRM puts and now have taken profits in CELG puts, a stock a pumper here criticized me for taking.

    musings by someone without a position in PNRA

    That time and wheat prices don't mean anything to PNRA's price now. IMHO it's about customers, revenues, costs, and earnings. I don't have a position now, but it is tempting to short PNRA. Since today is Friday, I may decide to wait and re-evaluate next week. It is tempting though. I just took profits on a SBUX short (via puts) because it seems to be around the bottom of it's recent range, but haven't taken a position in PNRA.

    I think the offerings have changed for the worse between a few years ago and when I was last at a Panera a few months ago. Maybe it's personal, but soups I liked there a few years ago and a meal size salad that was my favorite a few years ago has already become inferior to the prior product. My experience isn't the issue, but the drop in business (which institutions likely hoping to sell their position as high as possible blame on the weather) matters, IMHO. The most recent time I went to a casual dining place during a snowstorm it wasn't a Panera (and it wasn't the restaurant most loved on Wall Street either).

  • I don't have a position in PNRA (though I did a couple of years ago) and I'm not planning to go long or short at least not this week. My question regarding the weather excuse is whether hourly employees who couldn't show up were paid and if some hourly employees wanting to come in were told not to come in.

    What I'm getting at is that weather conditions affect business every quarter. Sometimes, weather, travelling, etc. is good for a food stock and sometimes it isn't.

    It's hard to tell if targets revised upward or downward are based on issues other than the weather.

    In what mall was that? In two malls I visited, one in the midwest and one in the northeast, there were a couple of clerks and no customers. I'm not short KORS, but I used the opportunity to exit because, especially in this market and what I saw at malls, I don't want to be long KORS going into earnings next week. What malls did the MS analyst visit?

    Now I see why KORS was as strong as it was today.
