  • Why I Am Not Yet Nibbling On Shake Shack [View article]
    I think this will not be as big of a problem as you surmise. They are only going to make 12 restaurants or so per year. Chipotle and others make 150 plus per year with very good results.

  • Why I Am Not Yet Nibbling On Shake Shack [View article]
    I think the author assumes the company has all franchised locations? Not so. At end of q2, out of 71 total SHAK restaurants, 37 were domestic company-operated. 34 were licensed. Going forward, they have a bias in favor of opening company-operated shaks vs. licensed.

  • The Habit: Mixed Report, $30 Fair Value [View article]
    Thanks for a thoughtful article.

    People don't expect a 30% grower to "only accelerate growth." Simply maintaining a growth rate like that (let alone accelerating it) is unsustainable over time. I think that premise is false and is the reason why I disagree w/ your view on comps. Positive or even flat comps against the backdrop of prior year quarter comps of 16% are fine. The market may overreact initially but the growth rate will have the last word finally.

  • Frontline Merger Provides Compelling Investment Upside [View article]
    I don't follow this at all. Since the exchange ratios are fixed, all that matters is which one garners more shares in the new entity at lower current prices.

  • Frontline Ltd. And Frontline 2012 Ltd. Have Entered Into A Merger Agreement [View article]
    @Marine Harvest:

    Your post is wrong (as usual). FRO has traded down in the past month leading up to the merger announcement from $2.95 on June 12th to the current $2.33, or 21%. Numerous commentators have mentioned the fact that FRO has underperformed on the announcement (something anyone could easily see) and that FRNT shareholders got a good deal. Here is a recent headline: "Frontline (FRO) Stock Falls on Frontline 2012 Merger".

    Though FRO had fallen considerably leading up to the merger announcement it still fell more on the actual announcement, while FRNT shares rallied on the announcement. The opinion of two analysts at Arctic securities and Pareto, who follow the company is that "Both brokerages also believes that shareholders of Frontline 2012 has been a good deal." That's a poor translation of "the shareholders of FRNT have gotten a "better" deal. The word that is used is "bessere" (better). Ultima has already explained the entire scenario in depth. Basically, it was a classic case of follow the money. JF owned a huge percentage of FRNT, so FRO shareholders got the worst of the deal.

    By the way, you still can't figure out the math on this one. You need to try to understand that there are 44 million more shares of FRNT outstanding.

    Ultima:

    You've been exactly right about what JF was going to do to FRO shareholders from the beginning. Kudos on a great call. FRNT valued at 3 times FRO! Amazing.

    Meanwhile FRO down huge after announcement and FRNT up huge.

  • Seadrill: Should You Buy This 11%-Yielder? [View article]
    <<5. Even in a market with few tender activity those companies with modern or high tech equipment will stay profitable - even more so if they have a strong order backlog with high dayrates. Those contracts are functionally forward sales of capacity. So companies like SDRL are hedged partially.>>

    Apparently NOT!

    Explain why p/s is more relevant than p/e and earnings growth rate.

  • North Atlantic Drilling: Fleet Analysis And Financial Results As Of November Commentary [View article]
    @Fun Trading

    On the contrary, I thought my apology quite good and (for my part) sincere. It's a little uncharitable in you that you could not accept my apology in the spirit it was offered. After all, I was merely trying to provide you with cover and an excuse for your unfortunate blunder in referring to the NADL/Rosneft agreement as a "done deal."

    If it's important to you, I suppose I can concede your overscrupulous point about "America." But I can't help feeling that your making it makes you simply childish, especially when the whole world refers to us, and no others, as "Americans": Canadiens are Canadiens; Brazilians Brazilians; Mexicans Mexicans; and we are Americans.

    As for poor Aristotle, I expect that you stand "zero chance" of wresting his hoary head from the grave to act as arbiter in our dispute.

  • North Atlantic Drilling Discusses Conditions In Offshore Drilling Industry [View article]
    Does anyone really believe they will get another contract b4 the end of the year?! There's a very good chance they won't get one in 2016 either! 2015 almost certainly not.

  • Ship Finance International: An Undervalued 10% High-Yield Stock [View article]
    I enjoyed the article. I suppose its 40% exposure to offshore raises the risk profile.

    There are no purchase options. This was clarified in the cc. The ships can be put to FRO at year end at owner's discretion.
