I dislike Company and Management(my posts)...but, this puppy will double over the next 18 months in spite of the insider bums.
Aside from dead cat today, I question the ability of current management to achieve a meaningful sales increase with current menu, treatment of customer, expansion of both company and franchised units. The concept of healthier food at competitive pricing with expansion to 500 stores in United States would allow for geometric growth, not 1-2 % that current administration considers "red hot". The stock price agrees with my assessment so far.
Never tasted the food. Also, can not remember ever walking out of a "fast food" or take out place, . The LOCO price appears on the "higher" end. The ads and menu look scrumptious.I purchase take out 5 to 7 days a week. In light of the inability of LOCO to increase sales, earnings, and expansion based on chicken gizzard operations, my experience, though no way scientific, is, well....hopefully not their modus operandi in Hillary speak!
LOCO et al is among the best manipulators/fleece artists I've come across in my 50+ years trading securities!
I'm embarrassed to have stepped in front of this bus. 'Tis a shame Justice nor SEC do doodoo. Well, maybe they do doodoo! These (no crime to be a bad businessmen) flaming scammers (pun) conduct company and disclosures as well as they run my local store (Totally Clucked Up). We longs are in deep gizzards. peepill
Visited Las Vegas Decatur/Sahara store two weeks ago Sunday and left after 12 minute wait without ordering as one untrained person could not place order. Went to same location Sunday 8/23 at approximately 2:00 pm, as I was passing store anyway. Not a car in lot and two cars in drive through lane. ONLY person in line. Three occasions employees went to cash register to "run" a card of some type. Over FIVE minutes, no BS, NOT ONE PERSON looked at me, nor smiled at me, nor acknowledged me, or informed "be with you in a minute". I finally yelled out "ARE YOU OPEN". At that point a very nice gentleman in purple shirt came to register and asked for my order. I explained that I was too #$%$ to order, had a similar problem of not having an opportunity of order a meal during the same time period two weeks earlier, and that they should get their plucking business in order--- as a shareholder.
He explained they were short staff and I explained I didn't give an egg and left. THESE PEOPLE ARE A DISGRACE operationally. I still cannot tell you how the chicken tastes as I'm batting 0-2 in ordering. I went to a local Smiths (Kroger) and purchased an 8 piece broiled chicken carton for $6.99 with two sides for an additional $5.27.
I have 1000 shares of this chicken-pig and will join the class action for fraudulent action by management and underwriters...but, in defense of LOCO, this group could NOT make money honestly or fraudulently. We longs are Screwed, Chewed and Tattooed by these Chicken Puckers.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
My humble evaluation of cash flow (from OLDER FINANCIALS) indicate IEP can not sustain the dividend out of cash flow. While for Mr. Icahn (Treasury Sec to be...OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!) cutting or screwing with the divie is no big deal, an old Putz like this writer needs the income especially after the stock value has turned to poopoo (an Icahn financial term). Any ideas about dividend continuing at current amount? Please, sane answers only!
I have. WHY (reason) do YOU suggest others buy as well. I know we're thinly traded; but, down another 3+ points today on volume? Should our fked govt approve export of oil and George Soros (the Kapo) be right about coal, one should mortgage the house and buy RRs and GBX etc. Tell me where I'm wrong, Dorthy, while I continue to soil my diapers!!!!!!!!!!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If there were material misstatements and a concerted effort by the underwriters to defraud...
What leadership(with a 't')? These bumpkins should expose the underwriters of LOCO to a class action for bringing this financial disaster and incompetent company public!!!!!!! Should I be successful locating attorneys, I'll post on this board. YES. We should expect due diligence from the underwriters upon which we investors may rely along with our personal due diligence. Everything about this Cluckbuster borders upon a massive fraud. later. Peepill PS I take responsibility for my mistakes and miscalculations and my stock choices. This was purely a fraud. Management claim will be they are not responsible for their poor management. WRONG. lol.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Thanks, I will. The food in ads looks great and relatively healthy. The 8 piece looks like I can have two or three meals (big eater). again, thanks!
I like WYNN; but(of course), a deflated currency must have a negative effect on US companies. Were the gross income consistent it may not be as bad...however, our little puppy. Look at what's gonna happen with hard goods like cars.
My friend. I do not know. LOCO could care less what I think (not much!). I did NOT complain nor ask any questions about the operation, as no one seemed to be in charge and I did what most customers do: I voted with my feet. i.e. I left and will not return. I've passed this location for years telling myself I must stop in...
Finally visited location at Sahara and Decator, Las Vegas, NV. Long stock and was happy to contribute. The place was relatively crowded Sunday afternoon. Place was filthy. Three in line ahead of me. Waited over 15 minutes while young woman (for I.D. only) at cash register clucked around with a gentleman's order. She could not get any part of the order right and kept looking up for help (never ASKing for help). Finally, she appears to have gotten the order...she then had to enter coupons. What a Cluster Cluck! Now, I was so sickened by the temperature (hot), the filth, the "hands up don't serve" ambiance...I turned around and left...something unusual for a food lover like me! Understanding this is hardly a scientific evaluation...I now have a better idea of why I'm loosing more than my tail feathers with this POS! I can not find a comparable place, though, some of the Friday's compare (not meant as a compliment)j. Longs, We're tared and feathered!
Received excellent evaluation from the yahoo board. This company should NOT be tied to expensive LIBOR financing negotiated over the past several years. Therefore this company, if purchased properties cherrypicked, should either increase in price or provide an even higher return. Any thoughts. Thanks
It does make sense. There's been a concerted effort to pump and dump this turd over the past two weeks.
Earnings and/or future must be horrific. Hotel prices and occupancy are at all time highs so it's hard to understand how these muckups can screw this up...but, watch after the close. They've botched something!!!!!!!!!!!!!
