We're on our way up over time I believe. Any new investor here is getting in at a 60% discount from NDLS IPO. Those who invested in the IPO, now is your chance to double up your investment and just stay off the message boards and come back every 6-months or so as your investment grows. The worse thing any investor can do is hang out daily on a message board. That's when a clown (Most likely, claiming to be short) can steer you away from your long-term goal. Always remember your long-term goal & don't worry.
I know what you'rte thinking over there, Will...You're here almost daily. That is correct, but this isn't my only investment. I have plenty of others, Chicago Bridge & Iron, Verizon,HomeAway,FireEye... I'm hardly ever looking at those boards. So relax! Have a plan.
Go to Youtube and find Kid Rock; Drinking Beer With Dad and give it a listen! :-)
I don't own very many Potbelly shares, so you're correct. I don't study it.
Yet, I remember Cramer said they did OK, he didn't give his blessing to invest, but said it wasn't a bad quarter at all.
This is what Big Al said;
Aylwin Lewis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Potbelly Corporation, commented, "We are pleased with our results in the fourth quarter, where we delivered revenue growth of 13.4%, driven by company-operated comparable sales growth of 3.7% and new unit growth. Comparable store sales growth continued to show strength in each month of the fourth quarter, driven by an improvement in underlying traffic trends as well as easing comparisons. For the full year, we achieved revenue growth of 9.1%, with company-operated comparable sales growth of 0.1%. We continue to execute upon our development plan, and opened 46 new shops during the year, which exceeds our stated long-term new unit growth target of at least 10%."
Lewis continued, "While the first half of the year was challenging, our shop and Support Center teams worked tirelessly to change the business momentum during the second half of 2014. The underlying fundamentals of the business are strong, as is our ability to achieve our long-term financial goals of at least 10% annual new unit growth for the foreseeable future, low single-digit comps, at least 20% annual adjusted net income growth and at least 25% return on capital investments."
Sounds better than the past.
Nothing definite, yet for a CFO to walk out just 2-weeks after Potbelly reported a very nice quarter does make a person wonder.
Maybe all these high-flying restaurant stocks are using smoke & mirrors with GAAP, while NDLS is earning & reporting the ethically correct way.
Think about it...
Thanks for contacting us about the recent price change on the First Kiss (Explicit). I recognize you have a choice of retailers and appreciate that you prefer to order from us.
Since the price of the item has changed within seven days of the delivery of the order, I've issued a refund for the price difference in the amount of $1.89. You should see the refund in the next 2-3 business days. We can only honor one price drop per item.
Once processed, you'll also be able to see the refund request here:
Couldn't you get in at $18.25? What happened?
Six callers away, Jimmy!
Get your Billions back, America!
I pre-ordered the Kid Rock First Kiss CD for $11.88 that's released and shipped today and Amazon lowered it's price to $9.99 and claims there's a price guarantee if the price drops on release date.
Yet, my order bill is still $11.88.
My question is where is the customer service link where I can ask them if I get included in the $9.99 price?
Thank you in advance!
I had it and didn't go for it. I slowly watched it head downward to the IPO price I originally paid at $92.30.
I'm just amazed with that company, and I'm back in with more than twice I had before. Yet, it's also my most spookiest stock as well.
I could easily be back to $120 or halved by Mother's Day!

Either good or bad.
Beats those 200,000 days we've endured for so long.
How many of you are long-term in NDLS with me?
UPS, NWN and (don't laugh) a whisker of PBPB. I own others as well, some good, some not so good.
Should of hung on to CHGG until today.
Can't win 'em all.
Noodles Market Cap is just too low! Went for the 50 P/E class today. 50x is doable.
NDLS seems to trade up mostly on days the DIJA/NAZ is down.
Might even trade it around a bit. Don't know for sure.
Funds are letting NDLS go! Has to be future outlook.
From the Gulf to Maine... weather has been brutal on Noodles every winter.
Jun 13, 2014 - Priceline will pay $103 per share in cash, which is a 46% premium over OpenTable's Thursday closing price of $70.43.
Just opened up and had to close the doors after 24-hours due to 'Overwhelming Demand'.
We need Noodles on the strip! (excluding Circus-Circus that is)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I still hold on. I bought on IPO day at $92.3 so hate to sell below that, yet without a doubt my worst investments over the years have been in Chinese companies. Like 2-10 on those.
It's crazy Seahawk mania out there. So, I am going to say...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
