    EPS looks scary. Wondering whether, or more likely when, they'll cut the dividend.

    They're at a 5 year low. Where is good value?

    My analysis suggests the current price is good value, with a potential downside of $13-14 a share and potential upside (once they turn around in a few years) of their all-time high. Decent risk vs reward scenario, the only negative is the downtrend is solidly intact, there's no reason not to wait for it to rise above a couple of the shorter term moving averages. I don't see a dividend cut, it's still very low at 2.3%.

    I was checking the financial report that went out yesterday. Is it just me or are they kind of stabilizing their finance a bit? It's not looking great at all but it looks like the hemorrhage has stopped. Or maybe it's me who's too enthusiastic?

    I looked and it looked like same stores sale decreases were accelerating, not decreasing. It seemed really negative. And the stock bounced. The same store sales decreases were across the board, not just out west. If they don't turn around quick, they'll turn an operating loss next year for sure.

    Newbie observation/comment: From what I can see, their finance are bad and remain bad one financial report after the other. Yet, share value keeps increasing this year.

    I'm puzzled about this. is there something I am missing?

    Investors anticipating the turnaround. People do not invest based on the last quarterly report, they invest on their expectation of future reports.
