I bet volume slows a bit while more analysts and investors research more and evaluate all aspects of this venture. To me its a mix between Taco Bell and Taco Cabana. Both are tasty, but nothing to right home about. Several Pollo Loco stores have closed, but it could have been due to upgrade issues, location, or cash flow issues when they were still private. I did check out how people rated the restaurants in other cities and it fell in the average range 2-3 stars, some were 4 stars. Now that they have plenty of cash to upgrade and start new restaurants, and maybe tweak some of their menu items its a wait and see how that and earnings comes out. To say its going to $15, before they even have an earnings report is ridicules. I have heard, but its not official that they are doing fairly well even with the issues mentioned above. I think momentum is showing it will test $28, and if it holds we bounce around until earnings. If earning are not good, taking new operations into consideration it could drop to the mid to lower 20's.
This is not RIM, but HOUSTON...we have a problem, but a fixable one. They wouldn't have given the 150 million DIV out, unless they had a plan...Like AAPL, they will have to have a presentation for "Ultimate Candy Crunch". Its 2 pieces a hammer and real candy...Nothing like it!!! Its awesome!!!
I thought about that yesterday when it was near a buck and half. I cannot understand why VRNG has not updated its shareholders with what its going to do, if anything??? Where is management??? I am starting to think they were in on it!!!
That's all I said is he thinks its interesting... and then I believe you hear Guy concur. Kren I never said it was anything different...Actually what I said was verbatim. So this is your way to address calling someone a liar?
They were talking about stocks that got hit yesterday hard, and LOCO was mentioned. One of the guys said its looks interesting at these levels. The guy that looks like Gary K. It was about 4:15-4:30 central time. You need to watch your mouth Kren. Calling someone a liar is abuse of this website. I will except your apology later or I will report you.
Lets see a 4% div -vs- 20% down...hum? In 5 years I'll break even. The 4% Dividend means nothing if its down 20%. Valero (VLO) is moving up and BP is moving down? Its been down for a while now..Anyone know why?
Dirty Lil Tmp: Thinks, since the company wanted to keep their REIT Loan Status and did a non-dilutive transaction through management or venture capitalists owned shares that there is no dilution. It’s a play on words. Sure you do not have the shares added to the existing share base, but there is still dilution for the venture capitalist or management that put up the shares from their private holdings. It is still a collateral instrument for a loan that dilutes the value of those shares from the holders. Sure it’s always better to let a private pool of these shares collateralize a loan, but to say it does not dilute (or devalue) its overall worth just because it wasn’t part of the float is just not true.
When Analysts make call this far from par, they should be given a grade. The more you are wrong the lower the score. If your score is below a certain level, you should be FIRED!!! Morgan Stanley Downgrade @22 Everyone else $30-$36. Strong Call action at 30, but anything can happen in the morning.
