I hoping a bidu like 10 for one split in a three years. Maybe a little out of reach but might as well shoot for the stars.
Sounds good to me. I'll be happy with 25 per share, but if they want to pay more, i'm good with that as well. The only growth for companies these days is through acquisitions, economy is still too sluggish.
Do we really believe the backlog is so huge. By the time they get it out it will be outdated. I thought the Chinese were famous for building things fast. They haven't given us much reason to believe anything they say at this point. So much potential , so little actually accomplished. Brilliant sale at 7 by the way, congrats.
These people are the ultimate insiders , they know flat out what will happen in the next couple quarters. If they are buying , I'm going to take a flier on this one.
You think they will do an extra 300-400 million next year and only 55 makes it to the bottom line? I think they do at least 5 and maybe 6 bucks per share next year , making it 15-18 times next years earnings. Analysts have been very slow to raise estimates, about a year ago they had this year at 1.75 per share. I just think they are being too conservative.
I bought at 27 , sold half ay 39.5 and will hopefully buy more at 24 bucks and sell half again around 40. Do that a few times and be averaged in at a great price and then wait 3-5 years and see what happens. I'm really looking forward to trying their food. Might take a long weekend in the fall to Cali (I live in Jersey) just to check out the wine country and Pollo Loco. Growth is the key , slow and steady is fine with me but not 10 stores a year. I'm looking for at least 50 - 100 new stores a year.
They only spent 2.2 million on marketing and sales, they need to put the petal to the metal and spend a lot more on that. Also ad revenue is only 5% of business, that eventually could be the biggest part of this company. Down the road 3-5 years this could be a monster , and then I will sell.
3 bucks this year, 6 bucks in 2015, 12 bucks in 2016 and so on. To the moon Alice... As I always say, a billion people is a really big number. I have high hopes for this one. GLTA.
If you sold in the after hours in particular after the last few announcements and bought back much cheaper you would have made a killing. I know if I sell and attempt to buy it back on a dip in price it will skyrocket and never come back. I' hoping things continue to go really well for the next 3 years, this could be really big by then. My real concerns are world events like Russia and Israel and the Chinese government. If left alone, this company could do great things.
I'm gonna front run you and put in a order for a whopping 2000 shares at 24.1. I know market moving amounts here but us little guys gotta have some fun. Very much looking forward to getting a few quarters behind us and getting a feel for management. If I don't like them , I'm gone.
CMG is almost all company stores while LOCO is mostly franchised. If that is true they will get their revenue in totally different ways, two completely different business models. I would prefer company owned stores. Now I am long at 27 but I sold half today at about 39.50, putting me long around 15 bucks. Gonna just take a break and wait a couple quarters and see how it goes. Will buy more if I like what I see. Some franchiser companies can be a disaster, I know people who owned a Quiznos, what a train wreck.
Including today LOCO will have traded about 100 million shares in 6 days. Unfortunate for bashers , there is only 7 million in the float. Gotta go up, supply and demand. I'm in at 27.5 and only wish I bought more. Doing the expansion correctly and carefully selecting locations is critical to the long term success of this stock.
I put in a small offer at 4.7 and the thing tanks. We are in the information blackout time of year. After the summer it usually picks up a little. Third and fourth quarters are all that really matter.
The money will come from the Ausie ipo. Reserve requirement met , end of story. Why the massive sell off? I thought bit was a real good quarter. Beat on revenue and missed by a penny on earnings. I'm long at almost zero so I'll wait it out.
I just went to a website calorie count a big mac with cheese has 704calories with 43 grams of fat and 1148 mg of sodium. I'm thinking any chicken dish from this place won't be anything near that.
