Funny that you mention Capital Grille..Yes we go there and have also bought DRI which owns them..But in all fairness, CBRL located along the big highways (1-95) etc seems to always have a lot of cars in their lots..Someone has to be eating..Semper Fi..
They have been open for a while on thksgvg. As much as RT seems dismal to all..our group uses them for quick bites on the road (as well as CBRL) and have been well treated and satisfield. This yr as in the past our group (retired Marines) delivers food to VA hospitals and we pick up the meals at an RT when nearby. Happy holidays to all..Semper Fi..
Put your question to one of our group who lives near DRI home offices. Just heard back, that while he could NOT get the individual specialty report..he was told that Fl..NY and Tx Capital Grilles are reporting INCREASED bookings since October 1 2013..
Saturday evening Capital Grille (8 of us) completely filled..Next door Seasons 52 also long line of cars waiting to be parked. Has been that way (according to managers) since both locations opened over year ago.Looks more and more favorable towards new approach by hedge fund to split up into 2 units of specialty group and Red Lobster/Olive Gardens group. Semper Fi.. Healthy holiday to all..
Your comment this time is worthy..We go back with dri to 2003 when 1st seasons 52 was opened. After eating at that 1st place we decided to invest in DRI and have been in and out since then. Members of our group attend every annual meeting in Fl and have spoken to Otis (ceo) on each occasion. We dont hump or dump this company but rather look at it for investing our money. So far its been good to us.The proposal to split it up has merit and could be a bonus to shareholders.This is only our opinion and we wish you and everyone else good luck and enjoyment for Thanksgiving. . Semper fi
You dont deserve an answer..but..your mother (whomever she is or was) could not even put you up for adoption..So your problem goes way back.. Want to continue your tirade..do it but be warned..Your time will come and no one will care.. Semper fi..
If not for us,,your trailer park home ,cant imagine you living anywhere else, would not be safe. We fought and some died for trash like you. Yes..some of us are the Ghetto boys..but as retired marines we also manage to eat in some of Dardens higher scale restaurants. Seasons 52 and Capital Grille. While the so called lower end dining places have a spot for many in our society, you obviously have nada to do but write and trash..Trashback is more of a name for you and fits. Love to meet you..Semper Fi..
Furthermore..we like the put game..If it looks right might sell some 2014 15's or some 2014 17.50's..depending on stock direction in the next few days..
There is some weakness in the energy sector...We have been buying this at 16.65 and now down to 16.40..New orders in at 16.25...Still looks like a very good situation and this company compares favorably with BBEP which pays same dividend and is 2 points higher. Patience is a virtue and has its rewards. Semper fi..
Laughing..You have an acct who really gives a #$%$ about ubt in a tax deferred account?? Time to change to an acct who doesn't know this junk !! Semper fi..
You seem quite knowledgeable with your calls..but as mentioned before SELLING PUTS in something you truly believe in could be quite rewarding..I dont as yet own this stock..but if I do and buy in the 17's..I will SELL puts out to mid 2014 in the $17.50 range for around 1.60-1.80..And if it ever drops badly, so I'll own some more in high 15's.. Have done this for years and the rewards continue..Semper fi..
Interesting one is VOC..Few have heard of or follow..I do..Started buying in the 14's and has done way more than anticipated. Simple operations and payout is everything less administrative costs. Yield is high..which you might be concerned with..Anyhow worth a look. My other love is bbep..I also play the sell puts situations and when bbep dropped to 18 plus on additional issue..I sold June 20 2014 puts for over $3.00..Nice big check and if it drops (which I doubt) I'll own more at under 17.. Semper fi..
good call..2 managers we spoke to said it appears business is picking up..True,some customers coming in with a coupon, but a lot of them are also buying drinks..That a big plus..Semper Fi..
Any reason available for todays drop?? No news that I could find?? This is single largest drop in a long time and from just a few days ago when new high was reached..Have asked someone to review trades and find out if any one big seller..
If my group of buddies (retired marines) listened to every wacko who yelled "get out" none of us would have survived. While RT is far from a buy...and new and hopefully knowledgeable management will be inserted..it does have great real estate value. for many of its locations. We have always been patient with our investments (DRI, CBRL etc) and this one might just be another to watch..Semper Fi..PS..all the directors and CEO's who got out are now ex folks..None are involved anymore. Good riddance.
