Really likes the restaurant sector. This one has been very successful in restructuring. Have been beating estimates substantially. Just announced they're going to start paying a dividend, which is a smart move.

World-class name. 16,000 locations globally. Have been doing very good cost cutting lately. 4 straight quarters of positive earnings surprises. Long-term growth rate of 16%.

Have restructured and taken a bunch of costs and rationalized the business. Prefers over Tim Horton's (THI-T).

(Market Call Minute.) You buy this one for restructuring. Costs came down more this quarter than expected and same-store comparables went down less than expected. Stock could probably move higher.

An early turnaround story. Aggressively cutting costs. Although they are ahead of schedule, there is limited upside and he would like to see the same store sales growth number turnaround.

Great company but unfortunately they may have hit the wall in their growth a couple of years ago. Premium product at a premium price and combined with the economic downturn put a huge crimp in their growth plans.

Was a traditional growth company trading at high multiples and then the wheels fell off. They are in a difficult position right now with a premium product where people are questioning how much they buy and what they pay.

Suffered a giant decline from $40. You would think the decline was over, but he sees some things on the fundamental side that concerns him. He would be a seller despite the large decline. Concerned there will be more downside.

Stock had a huge run over the long run and in more recent times, has started coming off. The growth they were showing was unsustainable and the valuation was very high. Going into a weaker economy, they are vulnerable to their cheaper competition.
