If those workers feel too much stress & the job does not meet their individual
employment goals, then they are free to find other jobs that more closely satisfy
their needs ..........
Each SBUX worker decides everyday if they want to work at SBUX.
If you would not want their job, fine. But don't think you can decide what
other people want from their employment positions .......
Thanks for your reply.........
Respectfully, COSTCO is not SBUX.
What impacts one retailer does not impact them all.......
BGS is up and over $ 38 per share today.......
Is this because of the closing of the Green Giant purchase...?
Simply adding the GG EBITDA to existing BGS EBITDA & up goes the stock...???
I guess its good news for existing BGS shareholders...we might even see $ 40 per share
if the overall market has a Santa rally this year.
2016 could be tough as BGS management must show that it can slow and then reverse
the multi-year revenues loses at Green Giant. I don't know how easy that will be to accomplish.
I think it takes more than simply throwing money at the problem.
It will take talent ....and guts.
Hope Cantwell's ''world class'' marketing team is up to this huge and important task in 2016-17.
If BGS can not reverse the GG revenue slide, then the entire BGS business will be risk.
Cantwell made big headlines in 2015 and stockholders are now enjoying the news.
But in late 2016 and 2017 we will see if the risk will be worth the reward.
Holiday greetings to all BGS interested investors...!
the smart money is still on the sidelines watching & waiting for a metals bottom.
There is ZERO REASON to jump in now when there is no sign of a bottom..!
You can rub it in whenever your commodity cycle reverses ...........
How many years will that be........who knows, not me or you..!!
SBUX will be at $ 200 when silver meaningfully reverses to $ 40....!!
then you better have a 12 to 36 month timeline to hold your new bought
shares.......commodity cycles last years not months
Looks today like miners are losing a little interest as materials/commodities are hit.....
If SBUX workers are motivated to work hard behind the counter, it should benefit them, the
customers and SBUX shareholders. Good hard working counter help is absolutely key to
a successful retail brand.
I agree that BLMN locations in Michigan are busy .........but anecdotal data can be dangerous..!
I have liked the brand/concept portfolio for some time ...been watching from afar for about 18 months
I now need to dig into the traffic trends, avg check, SSS comps & margin growth over the past
year, to see if BLMN is worth buying........... if it is making a bottom in late November 2015.....
As of Thanksgiving BLMN has not shown any real signal of going higher .....
However this upcoming week, if BLMN does well, the stock price could break through
its nearly 4 month down-trend........
mid week next week might be a time to be able to tell if BLMN is reversing and
going higher into the end of the year...??
Frozen spuds would be a great pick up for PF....adding to its Birds Eye products
would give PF stocking/margin leverage in the frozen grocery section.
What is PF's debt to EBITDA ratio, after this BDBD purchase....?
Taking on the BDBD debt really hurt the PF leverage balance, given the size
of the BDBD deal.....
I think PF paid too high of a price for these group of brands that have not been doing as well
as most ''healthy brand products'' should .........
Certainly some/fair amount of emerging QSR will fail.....its the nature of the sector.
Investor's job is to try to research & uncover those few QSR that will succeed on a
nationwide level.....like CMG & PNRA or SBUX
No real data emerged that says to investors ZOES will not succeed.
Still too early to tell.
ZOES still a good investment for a nationwide roll-out by 2020-25
