The story behind COSI is a sad one. The food is actually decent and the pricing isn't terrible. The company has the image and branding ability to be successful but doesn't capitalize. What this restaurant suffers from is poor atmosphere, lack of advertising, and a lackluster menu. Chips or carrots? Come on...

The company's management has also been an issue recently though they have brought in RJ Dourney as CEO whose biggest career title was VP at Applebees back sometime in the 2000s. They also hired a new CFO. I'm very interested in seeing what they are able to do with this company.

I'm extremely interested in the long term performance of this company. With the correct management they can really turn it around. They have operations in both the US and Costa Rica, and can easily drive foot traffic with some operational improvements.

Optimistic for the long term, but for now underperform short term.

Negative book value. Awful margins. Can't turn a profit, and the cash flow is even worse. No branding power. No competitive advantage at all. If this company had debt it would get shut down. SHORT THIS STOCK!

COSI is a great brand and at 1.30 is a complete bargain. I believe this has 10 bagger and even 100 bagger potential over the next 10+ years once the right management is obtained.

Bread and sandwiches are amazing. High risk but I think the food quality will win out. Line is always out the door.

New pop-up restaurants, Management reducing costs, changes in menu should bring profitability again.

This is a highly speculative stock, but I think that the new management team (on the job for just over a year now) has a solid plan to turn Cosi around. The company has already made menu and operational improvements; now it's all about marketing and execution. Cosi could be a multi-bagger if it finally reaches profitability.

Eat lunch here at least twice a week. Has room for improvement, which I hope the new management is making. Huge potential with attendant risk.

Does not depend on discretionary income spending.Small cap trying to recover from the recession.Should be able to outperform in a flatish market.

Market Cap only 55M and stock price is currently in the dumps. Management has struggled with a good product to produce any really good numbers. However, perhaps slowly starting to edge towards profitability and now would be a risky play to hop in and wait for it to soar.

Flyer. A better dining experience than Paneira, so if they can execute it could be an Peter Lynch style 10-bagger.

Good stock just beaten up. Has decent revenue increase over 2006,2007, and is expanding. I really like it below $3 also.

Concept is poised to become a strong player in quick casual restaurant sector. Should be second to panera bread within next 2 years.

Buy and hold. I'd turn the buy signal on when the stock gets below $5.50.
