View Full Version : Cheesecake Factory: Any Reason NOT to buy this stock?

09-16-2005, 01:02 PM
Myself, I often like to buy stocks and potential buys in companies that I myself like.

Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) in Florida is ALWAYS packed, they have great food and a neat atmosphere.

They have maybe 90 stores in most US states but I think there is some room to expand and grow. They are not everywhere yet.

Financials seem strong and I liek the management. Anaylsts like the company for the most part.

Anything I am missing?

i know it's packed everywhere, but i can't stand the food. it's puzzling. i do think there's room to grow though. even at 30+ PE.

own it.

One problem with the company is that they pay their workers more than they should. My dad manages a TGI. Fridays right next to one of these places in Florida and they take all his workers lol I would think they have high labor costs but can't confirm that.
