    If I was anywhere on the Chipotle one trick pony ride, it would be as a short.

    be careful with momo stocks, especially after they've fallen from grace. I am sure plenty of shorts got burned trying to chase GMCR at 20 instead of 80

    Frankly, I pay no attention to anyone who would compare Chipotle to Taco Bell - Qdoba, Moe's Panchero, etc.,perhaps. But comparing to Taco Bell is like suggesting that Chevy sales will impact BMW - I don't think so.

    If CMG were trading @ 20x earnings and a 1x PEG, I'd agree. The problem is it's no longer a small startup and is trading @ 30x PE and 1.6x PEG...No doubt its burritos are better than TB's, but I seem to remember a certain donut company called Krispy Kreme that used to be viewed the way CMG is now, and I know how that turned out.
