I trully believe that Ruth's Hospitality Group has tremendous upside in the long run. I also feel that they stand out in this niche as being one of the best. However, I also feel that an investment in Ruth's is certainly not for the timid. The stock's price will likely remain very volatile over the next 3-6 months. At today's prices, I certainly would feel compelled to get my feet wet so to speak, if interested in this space.

Ruth's has an strong established buisiness with solid management and good long term prospects. I can personally attest to the high level of service that a trip there provides. In my opinion the food is some of the best in the fine dining business. I've been to many fine dining establishments, and I can honestly say that the level of personal service that I receive when eating at Ruth's is excellent to say the least. I've never had anything but great service there. In this dining niche, Ruth's provides the utmost quality service and an overall wonderful dining experience. Economic weakness will certainly weigh on them in the intermediate term, but what they sell best is great service, and once the economy picks back up in the next 6-18 months, Ruth's will likely perform very well.
