Kathryn and SirTas – thanks for the info. I've been watching CHUX for a year or so but haven't bought the stock yet.

I would think SSS should be pretty good this quarter (Q3). Last year's Q3 was impacted significantly by the events of Sept. 11, the company has said. That should make for an easy comparison. If SSS does somehow drop this quarter, I would think that's a sign of trouble.

Listening to the CC, I was impressed that management seems to have a good focus on cost control, which is critical to success in this industry. The company has a hedging program that allows it to lock in costs on about 70% of items on the menu.
