Big debt, small cap, inconsistent earnings, no dividend, why would this be a good investment especially in such a competitive industry?

MRT has been killed in the market. Book value is over nine bucks and the recent buy back of stock has reduced the float to zero. The inly think keeping me for choosing a longer time frame is the 800 pound gorilla pounding the world markets at the current time.

An upscale steak house to die for... I think they have a winning concept to lure the high-rollers, of whom there always seem to be quite a few. Long-term buy and hold.

Prior year earnings was adversely affected by nonrecurring items and unfavorable movements in beef prices during the summer. Looking forward, price stability in the price of beef and expansion into new markets will enable MRT to continue its trend of beating consensus estimates.
