    I purchased 400,000 shares at $110 on July 1 based on your advice.
    I had to keep having to over-ride my internet broker's system to force the buy price that high.
    What should I do now???

    Q2 EPS Estimate for Q2 2014

    mdaceut, I am a very new investor in NHTC and hope somebody else has the knowledge to offer an opinion on your question. Makes sense to invest in the markets where they are growing the most (HK, Taiwan and China). I missed the chance to hear the earnings conference call, which may have had some useful detail.

    So sorry to break the news to you....there is little to no justice. And certainly not what you are looking for.

    I took my family to Pot Bell once. We did not go back. I go to El Pollo Loco every chance I get and will for the remainder of my life. Your think that El Pollo Loco is a sandwich shop per your other recent post talking about the Huge Calorie Content of the Non-Existent Sandwiches at El Pollo Loco . You have obviously never been to El Pollo Loco. Keep posting every ten minutes about your negativity and short position.

    Only a doosh bag idiot (agchem) would be talking about SANDWICHES in relation to El Pollo Loco. So...you have Never been there correct? I am type 2 diabetic and they have exactly the healthy meal that I need to eat really tasty food that is low glycemic. Not sure you have any clue what that means.

    LOCO vs Boston Market

    I like Boston Market food. I LOVE El Pollo Loco chicken and side dishes, plus the salsa bar.

    An $8 combo meal with grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, and pinto beans...plus a mixture of salsas is real tasty, nutritious, and low glycemic for those with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.

    Q2 EPS Estimate for Q2 2014

    gothzillaman gothzillaman Jul 25, 2014 10:00 PM Flag

    I certainly hope the overall expectations at in the .30 to .35 area.
    For the quarter to be less than 0.40 the operating leverage shown the last 4 quarters would need to stop and go in reverse, or something else odd be reported...imo. Time will tell. Getting off the pink sheets would be a huge help.

    Quarter 6/30/14
    Revenue $34,200
    COGS $7,524
    COGS % 22.0%
    Gross Profit $26,676
    Gross Profit % 78.0%
    SGA $21,546
    SGA % 63.0%
    Net Profit $5,130
    Net Profit % 15.0%
    Share Count 11,520
    EPS $0.445

    Made a little spreadsheet model for the past 4 quarters to model a projection for Q2 at the stated revenue projection from the press release.
    Got:
    $0.40 EPS low end
    $0.445 projected

    If revenue growth continues in the coming quarters then the next 12 months will be north of $2.00 annual EPS. Stock chart is a thing of beauty.

    DLA should sue LQDT

    The US Federal Government is a bloated corpse which spends money without regard to any economic sense or consequence whatsoever based upon the belief that that the US Dollar will be the Reserve Currency of the World forever and that the US can rob the rest of the world blind for eternity. I have grave doubts regarding this plan of action.

  • ProtoLabs, The "Baddest 3D Printing Company on The Planet" announces a Revolutionary Partnership with PetsMart to eliminate the tedious scheduling and transport of pets to Petsmart for grooming or veterinary care.
    "Today's time-pressed pet owner has no time to even acknowledge a household's pet's existence much less the pet's need for veterinary care or grooming requirements" states Schmegal Bosonmeister, the new trial VP of Virtual Pet Processing, the acting officer for an un-named division of his un-named and legally redacted potential employer.

    "For the less-discriminating pet owner, we are currently capable of installing a 3D Scanner at client consumer accounts that can more or less scan and transport the Household Pet to PetsMart for grooming or veterinary care. Once more or less received at PetsMart, the Pet can be groomed or be given veterinary care and then re-scanned and transported back to the Loving Family to see if there is any remaining bond whatsoever between the pet and the family. If the family likes the cosmetic grooming or medical care that has been performed on the transmuted canine we then have a commercial invoice and a likely repeat customer.

    ProtoLabs and PetsMart are convinced that this new service will resonate with America's New Consumers. Schmegal expounds "Today's homeowner is pretty much fed up with the demands of a job, a spouse that is too tired most nights for you-know-what, incessant weeds and shrubs demanding attention to maintain compliance with the Homeowner's Association's, federal taxes, state taxes, local taxes, and fatigue explaining to his liberal friends why he is just tired of working and paying taxes.

    "Finally, there is a service for which you can scan your dog, that will produce a reasonably good copy of your dog and will take reasonably good care of the close copy of your dog, and will return a well taken care of the facsimile of the dog you once knew" states a beaming Schmegal Bosonmeister.
