I recently purchased a Nest thermostat despite the fact I live in a 1 bedroom apartment complex with maybe $30 a month in electric costs. The Nest was started by some former Apple engineers, who turned a thermostat from a dumb and dumb looking $30 item into a smart and great looking $250 item. You can control the thermostat from an app on your smartphone, and it figures out your routine to create a heating/cooling schedule for you. [more]
So BWLD takes a big dip again because wing prices are high. I guess you could say this time the higher wing prices hit the bottom line, so the analyst that I mocked from my previous post on BWLD could be categorized as correct. [more]
Can anyone confirm the rumor that Chipotle is spinning off the burrito part of their business and calling it "Burriotster"? I think that would be a bad idea, along with the proposed new 60% higher price point of $10 per burrito. [more]
I've held BWLD off and on for the last 5 years or so. One thing you can count on: there will always be a buying opportunity when some analysts says wing prices are high and the stock drops. I've always bought back in on that news. A few years ago, BWLD started adding other items to diversify their menu. Well lo and behold, guess what... Wedbush downgrades BWLD because wing prices are soaring. Reading the article, it downgraded the stock because it back calculated that the company paid over $2 a pound for the wings. Doesn't seem to hurt the bottom line. [more]
Does TMF have a widget that lets me share my CAPS score, picks, or anything else on my blog or Facebook page? I think it'd be neat to be able to have people track my score to keep me accountable.
