+ Watch DNKN
on My Watchlist
DNKN has a lot of room to expand. Every time I see a new store open there are lines out the door. They have just started showing up in FL and the results are the same as I see in NE, busy.
It's going to expand west. It's competitive advantages is great and their fundamentals are solid. I will buy this once I see a dip in price.
Exploding western-US locations! Can't go wrong with coffee and new breakfast sandwich menu items are awesome! Growth potential = extreme!

Coffee is very cheap at the moment, just above $1.00 per pound. The savings will not be passed onto consumers; instead this will help bring the profits of $3.50 cup of coffee to increase. Great way to get ahead with this as many of these companies will be purchasing a lot of cheap coffee in the next few months for their future sales.
Red thumb ended too soon by http://caps.fool.com/player/acardenal.aspx Value at 15x PE = $17, a bit of growth = good. Debt = bad.End ASAP.
The coffee has such a big following, I couldn't stay away from this one... adding breakfast sandwiches is brilliant... a local store recently expanded with addition of Baskin product and traffic has increased nicely... expansion/growth into CA is brilliant and can't/shouldn't be ignored...
This company has some 25,000 PLUS combined DD and Baskin Robbin Locations, and their Coffee is known to be better than SBUX. With all their Real Estate alone, they are sitting on a fortune and can always finance if times get lean!!!
Mega growth potential!!!
Now paying dividends
They are expanding, but I dont think they have what it will take to stomp on the Starbucks' ground.
Expansion growth, product growth and great coffee!
Who doesn't like Dunkin?
Growing store count and not many stores in the west. Like how small the shops are and that people usually just come in and grab and go. Keeps costs of buildout in stores lower.
Dunkin Donuts has no public stores in California. This is incredible. It’s just starting it’s west expansion, with plans to open over 300 new stores this year. DNKN K-Kups just saw a 30% increase in sales comps. They also own Baskin Robbins which I love. Nigel Travis, the CEO since 2009, also announced a dividend increase of 27%, so it now yields 2.1%. At only 3.9 billion (Starbucks is 42 billion, which I also own), PEG 1.55, and a brand everyone knows, I’m ready to start 1.1% position. I also want to tell my son he owns shares of Baskin Robbins when we start going there, so I trimmed 20% of his NFLX position in his ESA and bought DNKN with it so he can ride that re-invested dividend for 16 years.
Loyalty program via mobile apps, etc. Companies trending towards multiple pay options (DPZ and their revamped online system, Amazon vs. brick and mortar stores, etc.) seem to have done well. Decent dividend.
Though the company has great expansion plans and many exciting news announcements, there is an underlying and fundamental issue with its structure as an "Asset - Light" business. The company has almost $2B in debt, backed by an overinflated valuation of its Trade Name. Though this is a company that makes its money through franchise and licensing agreements, hence lending to the idea of an asset-light strategy, backing up a substantial amount of debt with an Intangible Asset (Trade Names, etc.) is a very risky move. I will be curious to see what happens in the next 2-3 years with all of the expansions, but I think that in the end the company will have to come up with a new strategy, which could create investor-averse conditions.
Will keep as a long-term holding and see what happens.
