    Glad I added more last week. Own it since last year and won't sell until it hits my target --> $50. Summer is coming and people will go on vacation, so this restaurant will be making lots of profits - Next quarter will be AMAZING!!!

    Absolutely horrible the way they treat their 'managers'. The term 'disposable' is being kind. If you knew what's behind the curtain you would not be invested here.

    I live in Florida near the BLMN headquarters. I tried the takeout and/or delivery process at all BLMN chains several times. The food held up well and the process was very smooth. On all meals, I received a little gift card for something like a Bloomin' onion. Bonefish has a robust family meal offering that is very reasonably priced. My kids have been happy with every takeout meal (not an easy feat to please them). I always talk with the staff about the level of business. Employees at all three chains told me that staff levels had been reduced and business seemed to improve with each takeout/delivery meal we ordered. I bought the stock about two weeks ago when Florida started re-opening. It moved up and now down with all the new COVID-19 cases, especially those turning up in restaurants. I am holding with a target of 16.

    Here's how millenials shop nowadays...i know because I'm related to bunch of them.....They order 2 or 3 items online, see which one they like the most, go to Mall stores and return unwanted items. Crazy, but true. Ask your own relatives that are millenials....they're all doing it. So Mall traffic doesn't transcend to Mall purchases, mostly just convenient way to return items. just my observation....best to read retailer reports about mall vs online purchases and confirm for yourself. @Mark talks about long lines at restaurants, well if your establishment is restricted to 25-50% capacity, of course you're going to have long lines. Perhaps Google what Fauci and CDC said about in-store restaurant dining this week. Then go look at #DRI & #BLMN restaurant stock prices for Thursday and Friday. Don't let pumpers take up space in your brain. Research, research, research before investing.....and perhaps go to Malls and ask clerks how business is doing as far as actual sales and get their take on it. They're living it every day....if they say things are great and you don't see empty storefronts, perhaps it is time to buy. $18 BILLION a week has now disappeared via loss of $600 FED unemployment and doesn't look like a deal is in the works to extend it. Just a fraction of that money not going to Mall tenants is a retail apocalypse.

    Don't expect $BLMN or any other restaurant conglomerate to do much right now, but I'm staying long — this company is way undervalued, and should have one of the strongest bounce backs in the category.

    Good earnings, sales growth, forward P/E is only 14. We should be able to see $24/share by the end of the quarter (+20%).

    Went out to dinner for the first time in months tonight. Social distancing measures were in place, the restaurant was crowded, and people were really enjoying themselves. Americans will not stay home indefinitely, and Bloomin Brands is a great stock to buy if you agree with this sentiment.

    I would buy now. Real estate is equal to stock value. Hedge fund has also a potential help

    BLMN will benefit from other restaurant closures, for example Logan's Roadhouse appears to have closed permanently. A lot of other smaller restaurants also won't open back up. The ones that do will be well positioned. They are also well positioned to expand on their take out business from this too.

    Ate at an Outback in Hattiesburg Ms Saturday night. Had to wait 45 mins to get in. 50% capacity. Talked to Waiter an he said business has been real good. I'll be glad when they have 100% cap. Food and service was great.

    Breaking: Pelosi says congress stays in session until Stimulus bill is done. Not sure how Senate feels about that. @MT, @Dirkke, bought #BLMN at $16.90. Will buy more if there's a September/October crash....traded it in $12-13 area. Comps & numbers are excellent even with coronovirus and competition has been decimated in past 6 months. If, questionable if, Stimulus package does take hold this will be an even bigger winner. Just on Stimulus news I jumped back into my favorite miners and Streamers too. Could be a Pelosi head-fake to McConnell, so follow the news closely. Congress wants to go back to constituents telling them their all for support. Now, will McConnell fold or accept a $2 trillion bill??

    Not giving up on BLMN but I have to say that I am shock that BLMN with its many attempts to break through $25, has failed again even with all the positive changes going on at BLMN. If you look back to all the changes that BLMN has done in the past year from Cutting redundant/excess internal positions, improving food quality, closing stores that were under performing, upgrading their technology, offering delivery services, creating O/C express, improving sales at all locations and much more. You would at least think BLMN should be in the mid 30s range.

    Their food has more flavor and is 100% better across the board and now with bigger portions than other restaurants in its class but investors don't seem to care about any of the above changes.

    What are institutional investors looking at or for that I'm not seeing to why BLMN shouldn't be in the mid 30s by now?

    Getting punished for not furloughing, not cutting benefits, and not giving guidance. Wall street did the same to Costco for increasing pay through the pandemic. Companies like bgfv got rewarded for layoffs, cutting hours, and rent abatement, all of which the calculated as "earnings" and wall street loved it.
