And this is why the entire industry of earnings forecasts needs to DIAF. Well not just this case, but you get the idea.

Because the stock had a waaaay over-blown value in the first place, pumped up on GROWTH, not necessarily just profit-earning. Since there's a Chipotle pretty much everywhere now, then further expansion isn't going to be as aggressive. It's still a profitable company, but the stock price might just come back down to where it ought to be - early investors will still make a killing, but people who bought it way over-valued will, as always, lose.

look what happened to google yesterday. profits were UP by like, 45% or something, but because it was below 'expectations' their stock took a huge tumble. how much "value" was just erased from asshole who are not only expecting infinite growth, but also get pissy when it's not up to some voodoo prediction is off.

Don't you all see? Unless it looks like chipotle will take over and become the only restaurant in the world, we should stop investing in them.

Also if they become the only restaurant in the world, we should stop investing in them because they cannot continue to grow.

There is a Chipotle-load of good Mexican food all over this country that is better, just as available, and at the same or better price, and their burritos aren't loaded with cheap a$$ rice to maximimze profit. Real Mexican food made by real Mexicans even. But investors need to not look at any of that, because it doesn't matter, and consider that most people's taste is in their ass.

(I work with this stupid asshole that tries to get our lunch group to go to Chipotle, when he isn't pushing for Subway or McDonalds...on a Friday. Jesus F man!)

The run up of the stock is also based on the 'expectations', so it's pretty reasonable/sensible this happens.

I like chipotle as much as the next lazy fatass, but I've noticed a steady decline in the quality of the food over the past 10 years. I might not mind so much except that it also correlates to a steady rise in their prices.

It's not really enough for me to take to the streets and jihad about it. But at the same time it also sours my opinion of them somewhat.

Let's not be disingenuous.I live in California. I'm probably 10 feet from a Mexican food place at all times. When I want Mexican food, I go to a Mexican food restaurant. When I want Chipotle, I go to Chipotle and I know exactly what I'm there to get. And it's not "Mexican" food.

and their burritos aren't loaded with cheap a$$ rice to maximimze profit. Real Mexican food made by real Mexicans even.

Ok, 1) real Mexican food should ALWAYS include delicious Mexican rice. Always. 2) All the chipotles I've ever been to have real Mexicans working in the kitchen.

Just sell your shares already ;)

Mexican burritos have NO rice in them, not 50%. The Mexicans working at your local Chipotle aren't even allowed to cook Mexican food. They'd get fired for that.

You know what good Mexican is, yet you say Chipotle is good and Mexican.....really? It's good for a quick Tuesday or Wednesday lunch, but if someone suggested Chipotle as THE place for the group to head to on a Friday, I'd never take their advice again.

You trolling!

burritos aren't really mexican. pretty sure they're american.

first off, flour was pretty much brought to the americas by europeans. historically, corn was the big deal here. hence corn tortillas, which are in every way superior to flour.

you can't have a flour tortilla burrito. i've tried, it always ends in apocalypse and catastrophe ("coming out from hiding", and "down turning").

but more importantly, the first burritos were made in america. so, are they mexican? or are they american made by people who were ancestrally from mexico?

Its all about PE, people. If it is anyhigher than 16-18 nowadays, you are paying too much for the stock, regardless of how busy the stores are. CMG is currently at 28.25, adoy.

/FB is over 100 now, was probably twice that at IPO

No I didn't. In fact, I went out of my way to point out that I don't consider Chipotle Mexican food. You fail, sir.

Chipotle is good fast mexican food.
Way better than Taco Bell, but still not as good as the local Mex place in most neighborhoods. (if you have the time to actually enjoy it)

Niman Ranch isn't exactly hard to come by -- there's a pizza place down the street from here that's obviously a front, and even they serve Niman Ranch meats.

For Chipotle, expansion in the United States is going to slow down for now. Chipotle needs to ramp up expansion in international markets. They have already expanded to Great Britain, France, and Canada. Unfortunately, Europe is not that hot right now as the EU is sliding into a recession. Chipotle should look into expanding into Australia, Canada, Germany, and Great Britain for now. Chipotle has begun to spend more on advertising outside of the internet which is good thing because Taco Bell is trying to actually compete against them.

A decade ago this company used to be owned by McDonald's. Look at them now.

Cry about authentic, while I keep eating delicious Mexican-American food. You can join the Chinese crying about authentic Chinese while I crack open my fortune cookie after my orange chicken and egg rolls.

Not that authentic isn't good, but so are the American-Ethnic variations.

SOURCE: All my life in San Diego, as well as some Mexican heritage. Someone pass me a California burrito.

RoyHobbs22: Chipotle is good but the pork at Moe's is better.


There used to be a Moe's Southwest Grill in Beaverton, OR (185th Ave.) a few years ago. It was OK, if a bit overpriced.

/ still, i can understand why it closed
// don't understand why Chipotle is so popular.
/// as other FARKERs have noted, there are many mom-and-pop Mexican joints that serve better & cheaper food...

/Remembers when the hot salsa was actually hot.


The might have been hit by the economy crashing like Moe's Southwest Grill was.
I worked for Moe's my entire college career. When I first started, Moe's made their own guacamole from fresh avacados, made their own marinades, marinaded and cooked their meats in it, and their fresh salsa spices didn't come pre-packaged, you actually had big tubs of cayenne pepper, onion powder, chili powder, etc and the food prep guy made it all by hand every day.
Once the crash hit, Moe's started cutting back. No longer did they do fresh avacados, mashed right there in the restaurant. It started coming pre-mashed in bags, and often tasted bland. The meats started coming pre-marinaded, vacuum packed. The salsa spices started coming in pre-mixed batches. They even changed the queso cheese recipe, presumably to something cheaper, after their original supplier went out of business.
Quality went way down, but prices sure didn't.

Their cilantro lime rice is veeery easy to make perfectly at home.

....and you cannot get guacamole without onions because then it's just called avocado spread. Guacamole = avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeno, lime juice, salt. Nothing more, nothing less. Making some tomorrow.

CSB time:

I had a business trip to Reno and grabbed lunch at a hole-in-the-wall Chinese place. One of the waitresses was speaking Chinese to all the other staff and such and then suddenly leaned over the counter to the kitchen crew "Adios amigos!"

I don't do much in the stock market, but one of my biggest bad decisions was to pass on Chipotle when they went public. IPO was 22$. Look where it is now... Also, Ford when it hit the shiatter. I couldn't hit the buy button...

Caliente means hot and and dulce means sweet. I am surprised nobody has mentioned this yet.

Yeah, I'm looking for a guy who's invented a time machine. I've got my eye on Google back when they went IPO at 100. Didn't know much about investing myself, and at the time I thought it was rather high...

But at least I avoided Facebook. Didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that one was overhyped.
