Actually, this is the third single-day drop of this magnitude in the past 14 months. Plus there was a 20% slide over the course of a couple days back in September. It does seem to rebound each time.

I still think this is a good stock to be in, but geez, do other stocks get punished badly this regularly? They lowered their yearly earnings forecast by about 7%, so 25% of the market cap vaporizes?

I don't really want to buy more, because I'm already overweighted in RRGB thanks to the spectacular growth my early purchase generated. Not a bad problem to have, all in all. It would be kinda nice if we didn't have to keep taking these outsized hits, though.
