High-quality organic food. Every once in a while there is a name that is very, very popular. This is the stock that has the most amount of excitement but also the most amount of volatility. Huge swings. But he feels it is time for some serious business and this is an area he feels investors should take a look at. Have something like 40% margins and 1000 stores. Looking for another $50 from here.

This is not the kind of a stock he looks at because it is a high growth stock and a high multiple stock. Their growth is slowing down. There is a lot of competition in Mexican food. At 30X earnings he is staying away. Doesn’t pay a dividend.

Not really familiar with it but it is higher end. All these companies are going to suffer from higher input costs, affecting margins. Expensive stock in terms of PE and that is why it went down. If it happens again you could see it at $2.50.

Chart shows a long upward trend from early 2009 but there was choppiness in 2011. Has a little bit of a wedge pattern so if it broke down to about the $325 level, there is probably a good chance to Short there and the most logical place for support would be at around $288-$290. Shorting when you have such a nice trend can be dangerous. If you want to buy, try to get it at the $330 level.

Buying a Put when it reaches its high of around $347-$350 with the idea of selling it if it goes down to $320-$310. Good strategy? This is a classic earnings momentum stock. He doesn't like to buy options because by definition you could lose 100% if you're wrong. If you are going to do it, buy a longer dated option (2 month or 3 month), pay the premium and then sell it as it migrates in 1 month.

Wants to buy a $3.10 Put for August up. (Caller thinks stock is going to go below $310.) Currently trading at $315, which is pretty good for a restaurant. Chart indicates there is a lot of biting going on and doesn't look like it is exhausting. This move would be a bit tricky now.

This is the kind of staple industry that just chugs along. Chart looks good. Nothing jumps out and is in a good sector.

Great earnings. Stock will probably split. Whenever they open a shop there is literally a line 2 hours before they open. Stock is going a lot higher.

Strategy of Buying Puts thinking the stock might go down for a while? He doesn’t use options. Chart shows a pretty good upward trend from early 2009 and has gone parabolic in the last half of this year. It could come back to the $200 level but he can see it moving higher. Unbound volume indicates it is being accumulated.
