    Today is National Donut Day, which, if not worth the trip to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (KKD +3.2%) for a free donut, merits discussion on how KKD rates as a tempting stock pick to SA contributor Rochelle Jenks. A measured approach to store growth is helping the company to keep same stores sales strong (last 3 quarters: 5.4%, 6.8%, and 7.5%) and refine its approach to where it should open new locations. On the product side, cold beverages and ice cream concotions provide new growth channels. Buy KKD on any dip to $15-$16, advises Jenks.

    Retail Geeks thinks it's a worthwhile venture to track which brands are attracting the most new Facebook fans, more as a backdrop to help provide context and comparative peer data than to assume a linear relationship to sales trends. In the hunt for Facebook relevance - Amazon (AMZN), Nautica (VFC), and Fanta (KO) are three hot brands - while OfficeMax (OMX), Hanes (HBI), and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (KKD) are barely moving the Facebook meter.

    Krispy Kreme (KKD) execs made it quite clear during the firm's earnings call that doughnut sales are "doggone strong" but it might have been premium coffee that really set up the company for a smashing performance (I, II) in Q1. Beverage unit sales were up a solid 5% Y/Y during the period for the company, but dollar sales shot up 16% as the company pushed more higher-priced coffee drinks. KKD +12.1% premarket.

    More on Krispy Kreme's (KKD) FQ1: The upbeat tone management struck during last quarter's CC ("great" February traffic counts, 9% comps growth in week 5) plays out well, as revenues, operating income, and adjusted net income rise 11.2%, 40%, and 37% respectively in FQ1. Same-store sales growth comes in at 11.4%. CEO James Morgan calls the performance "exceptional," and raises FY14 EPS guidance to $0.59-0.63/share versus consensus of $0.58. Shares +10% AH. (PR)

    Restaurant visits by parties of adults grew by 1% last year to end four consecutive declines in the category but visits with children in tow showed flat growth once again, according to tracking from the NPD Group. A tripping point for the sector has been the lack of growth in visits by parties with kids. What to watch: Analysts see increased promotional activity sneaking in on the industry's margins.

    Krispy Kreme (KKD -6.9%) trades lower after reporting largely in-line Q4 results and issuing soft guidance During the company's earnings call, execs were very vocal that the current quarter is going well. Traffic count was "great" in February and the comparable store sales gain in the first week of March was up 9% despite "gas and the expiration of the payroll tax thing." (transcript)
