Wow the second straight quarter of absolute disaster for Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). As I type it is down 11% in after hours after the destruction it faced the past three months. A classic lessons on the dangers of momo stocks once they turn for the worse.
Q3 EPS of $2.27 misses by $0.03. Revenue of $700.5M (+18.4% Y/Y) misses by $1.7M. (Same store sales below +5% – down from the traditional double digit pace of yesteryear)
