It's Not Yet Time to Buy Chipotle

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics relating to their 10-Bagger portfolio.

Chipotle gave a disappointing earnings report and the stock fell hard. But it's not time to buy just yet. Sales grew about 21%, but missed expectations. Same-stores sales came in lower than analysts forecasted, too. Chipotle isn't the only restaurant to miss earnings. Yum! Brands also came up a little shy. John and David really like Chipotle. It has great management, and a lot of growth ahead of it. Given its comments about a slowdown, however, it's probably wise to wait a bit longer before picking up shares. John and David definitely see a future opportunity here.
