+ Watch BKW
on My Watchlist
Burger King now has the chance to go after the juggler of MacDonald's, clients are becoming enraged after being told to pay, get a cold burger, fries and a melted deserts. My last burger from BKC was great, tasty and very hot! With Mickey Dee's order, my Chicken-Mac-Nards were so cold, I thought the saved them from the previous night because they were like chewing cardboard. I called management and MCD did nothing to ameliorate my issue and the guy who was in front of me waiting in his car for four minutes, threw his bag of hamburgers at the employee and demanded a refund. BKC has the ability to steal all the disenchanted consumers from the Hubris King "Mac Donald's" and their "too big to fail" or "What's good enough for Mac Donald's is good enough for Americans" attitude.BKC, it's time to crank away and crush the arrogant king of burgers, keep doing a great job and please don't allow your burgers to sit under the heat-lamp, you make them to go, keep up the good work! Your variety has improved and overall customer service is good, well done Burger King!
This account is an experiment to see if good customer service reviews on www.yelp.com for public companies which have locations in or near Vista, California (my hometown) will lead to market-trouncing results. Any business that gets a 2.6-5 star rating will get a green thumb, and any business that gets a 0-2.5 rating will get a red thumb. For businesses with multiple locations in Vista, I will take the average of all of those location’s ratings. This isn’t intended to be exhaustive…I’ll probably only rate 100 tickers at absolute max – this is simply intended to be an experiment. It’s a flawed one, I know, but hey I might as well have some fun here. :)Currently, the 13 Burger Kings in and around Vista have an average 2.54 star rating on Yelp, thus this company gets a red thumb.
Temporary boost from franchise contracts won't forever offset a bad menu, poor marketing/image, and empty parking lots. When the franchises start to bail the whole operation will fall apart.
After a nice pullback on light volume from $18.46 still trading above major moving averages with stochastic just turning up on heavy volume makes it a nice technical trade right now. Plans of opening hundreds of restaurants in Russia and one thousand chains in China over next several years as the number two burger chain world wide and more global expansion underway the stock should have plenty of room for growth.
I'm red thumbing this just on priciple-http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2271440/Burger-King-admits-selling-beef-burgers-Whoppers-containing-horse-meat.html#axzz2JmUR1pvHNot because they served horsemeat in their burgers but the fact that they did bussiness with a supplier that would sport such a shoddily made sign.Seriously look at the second pic in the article. The most aggregious of offenses is that they didn't use stainless studs to attach the raised letters in silvercrest. That's why you see the rust stains running down.Second issue is with seams, seams are not desirable, so you try and minimize them to one at the middle. If the customers willing to pay for it there is a way to eliminate the seam entirely.Third and last issue, whats up with the concrete slab, yeah that looks lovely(sarcasm) and also way more work then just digging two holes and sinking your pole 42' (depending on frost line of the area)Also why no skirt, do you really want to look at the poles. Maybe I'm biased but I don't trust any copany or those associated with them if they don't have a quality sign.
New business model and revamping of its image will help boost this stock. Burger King is even now starting to compete with McDonald's on a wide scale.
The stock has McDonald's like potential
Interesting company with huge grows in CEE
south america whole new area to explore
In the long run, I don't think this stock is better than the market. I don't think its going away, I just don't think its better than average. Sorta reminds me of their food -- blah.
The only real reason to buy this company is to make an Asia play.As a former resident in Japan and current resident in China, I can say that people of these two countries are extremely brand loyal. I can safely assume S. Korea is more or less the same. Don't expect them to jump ship from McDonald's to BK just because there's a new restaurant on the block. Foreigners eat at McDonald's because they want a slice of American culture. Burger King doesn't have nearly enough status and worldwide recognition to be a "brand name" (which Asian people CRAVE!). When it comes to hamburgers and foreign countries, MCD will always be #1. Yum Brands (actually quite a bit stronger than MCD in China) will be the top dog with chicken and pizza. BK has been trying to enter the Japanese market forever, yet still struggles. I'm guessing that the results will be more or less the same in China.If China's growth is stalling, BK couldn't have picked a worse time to build 1000 more restaurants. No thanks.
