+ Watch EAT
on My Watchlist
The Company owns, operates or franchises various restaurant brands located in the United States.
Here's another debt laden company, similar to AZO, that thinks all it has to do is buy back its stock to grow earnings. It's a bankruptcy waiting to happen.
Technology, menu innovation, renovations and a focus on creating the best job in the industry. Will lower TO, improving COS and Labor, improve the EBITDA and continue the return to shareholders.

Dropped Macaroni Grill. Starting to see an increase in guest traffic.
When the overly optimistic FOMC says that household spending will be "constrained" by sluggish income growth, ongoing job losses, lower household wealth, and tight credit AND Shanghai stocks hit a seven-week low, then you know this bear market rally is finally over!
Shorting the recent bounce and 21 P/E.
Restaurant business is going to be rough for a while as its mostly tied to expendable income.
Now that Christmas is over and people sit down to pay the bills, restaurants will be among the first to take a hitReal estate costs will hurt EAT as well
great food, strong mgmt with vision to grow
This company is continually looking for ways to improve, from menu to service. It's menu is priced well. It will gain customers from the upper end market. Pricing and good food keep this company viable. The amount of time and money given back to the community is incredible. This stock can only go up.
Less disposable income will result in less eating out. This stock should continue to be battered until we come out of this mess.
People will either eat at home or at McDonald's... overpriced casual dining chain restarants are toast !
Trading at only 4 times cash flows for 2009. Trading at less than 2.5 times average cash flow for past 5 years. Manageable debt and a great franchise on the cheap in my opinion. Company spends money from operations to buy shares, pay dividends, and open new profitable stores. I think the market is handing us a deal because of the Macaroni Grill charge (which made 2008 earnings look horrible) and the class action suit. I read that it may cost $100 million. That's a lot of money, but should be a one time event. Shares look undeservedly cheap for such a great brand...I bought and will buy more if price cooperates.
The US might be hitting bottom of the slowdown or it might have a few months to go. I'm going to buy this stock now because companies try harder when their stocks are down. They are therefore more likely to do well when the cyclical recession becomes a postive market. I am also convinced that the world talked itself into recession. Now it needs to talk itself out of it.
Sector call....economy slowing, fewer people eating out.
