Though Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) now trades over 50% above its IPO price, Paul Zimbardo remains a skeptic. Zimbardo notes how the restrictions attached to Dunkin's $1.5B debt load could limit growth, and isn't sold on the company's Western expansion plans. He also thinks "prospects are bleak" for Dunkin's Baskin-Robbins subsidiary.

    Another highway robbery by the private equity thugs! They do well even during a depression when every body is having a hard time! No depression for them!

    Absolutely tjohn1, this is highway robbery. IPOs in today's market are brand fueled marketing scams, robbing the real entrepreneurs access to capital. Dunkin Donuts cannot compete with local donut shops or coffee houses. Dunkin Donuts cannot even compete in America selling donuts. Their prices are exceptionally high, quality has diminished to horrible, and service is performed by "staff" not the owners. TWO THUMBS down for DNKN. I will never eat there again.
