A Very Tentative 5-Minute Analysis (Heiserman)

Not Good:

Short Ratio: 15.16% (just a bit over the desired 15% max)
New Debt of 850M: Debt/Equity ratio of 137% (not <75%)

on the good sided:

Stock-based compensation ratio: 13.3% (<15%) (based on 10Q fourth quarter results showing 4,401,544 in deferred stock compensation and $33,030,220 in Accrued Profits.

Intangible Assets Ratio: 2% (<20%)
Rev Growth is excellent (5 year to 2003: 151% | 2001-3: 48% |2001-5(est): 68%)
No lawsuits/restatements/unusual losses
Auditors' reports qualified.

Estimates indicate more rather than fewer people will being going out to eat. The ShortRatio is just a little over the desired 15%. The new debt may indicate smart consolidation of old debt and smart expansion.

Anyone else want to contribute or help me out with this?
