+ Watch KKD
on My Watchlist
The Company is engaged in the sale of doughnuts and related items through Company-owned stores.
Overseas developing markets will taste the sweat treats and fall in love and KKD will get fat on profits.
Cleaning things up!
Strong brand recognition, improving balance sheet, stock buy back in 2013 with more cashed earmarked for additional buyback. Improving sales number coupled with International expansion should continue to boost earnings.Doughnuts account for 80% of their sales and they are by far the best. Their main competitor, Dunkin' Donuts, is not even close. "Hot Doughnuts Now" is iconic in the United States and soon will internationally.
Too expense and missed on revenue.
RAPID GROAWTH AHEAD
Last quarter earnings were a great disappointment. KKD is not longer the growth Company as it was supposed to be. There is a good Chance that KKD - after last quarterly earnings - will be seen by Investors no longer as a large growth Company.
The push against obesity is starting to take baby steps in the media and that doesn't bode well for companies like Krispy Kreme.
Rebuilding rolls on, supplemented by buy-backs and an incremental [but relentless] overseas expansion. While Starbucks and Dunkin' are experimenting with their menu, Krispy has made the command decision to stay with what works - no more whole wheat donuts!
GOOD STOCK TO HAVE
Living overseas here in The Philippines, I see so many new branches being Built
if they get the coffee right as percentage of sales, they will outperform
cash flow is south of 50 cents per share..that makes its P/CF north of 35... There are better places to put your money..
Q1 EPS of $0.20 beats by $0.04. Revenue of $120.6M (+11.2% Y/Y) beats by $4.63M.
this company has been around since 1937. It currently has over 700 stores worldwide including in asia and the middle east. Its expansion overseas is moving at a quick pace. Its not hard for me to say that in another 10-20 yrs from here it will be a well known franchise around the world.
The show is over, now time for a dose of reality.
Great turnaround story, solid management, and excellent growth coming up with plenty of room to expand. Furthermore, doughnuts seem to be crossing through cultural borders as the company is doing well in Asia and the Middle East (though it helps that Kuwait's Al Kharafi family owns a 12% equity stake and bankrolling some of the expansion). Barely any penetration in Latin America and nothing in Europe so far.And besides, they're doughnuts. Who doesn't like doughnuts? It's a guilty pleasure.
Slow steady growth, almost twice the cash than debt owed, expanding to new international markets, relying on its iconic brand name and method of grand openings.
Solid expansion plan. Seem to have solid numbers. Undervalued right now, outperform.
The spelling says it all.
KKD is making a comeback
