When Will Chipotle Reach Burrito Saturation?

On Friday's installment of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio lead advisor Ron Gross take a look at some of the biggest blockbuster stories from this earnings season, to see who popped, and who dropped.

Chipotle had another phenomenal quarter this quarter, with shares up more than 11% by market close on the news. Revenue increased more than 20%, with same-store sales growing by more than 9%. The company is looking to open another 200 restaurants in 2014: Is that too aggressive? Could the company be approaching the dreaded "burrito saturation point?" In this segment, Ron tells investors why he loves this stock, and how much more growth the company could still have left.
