Shares of Dunkin' Brands (DNKN +3.8%) run higher after Piper Jaffray's recent upgrade to an Overweight rating looks a little more impressive after it takes down other restaurant chains. A common thread from DNKN bulls is that the headline P-E ratio looks pricey mainly due to one-time expenses the company will outlive, but is justifiable given the large growth track the company remains on.

    Rather than being overweight this stock, you should consider this stock overweight. Like an obese person or a bubble. Price to sales is still more than double industy average, how do those one-time expenses account for that?

     

    This is every sell-side analyst's favorite for a reason. Pump, dilute, and dump.

    One time expenses? ya mean the interest payments on its outrageous debt? Crank Tim Horton's valuations into DNKN and you'll see the DNKN is a bargain...at about $12 a share!
