Wow, had to really stretch for that one. I started looking into BAGL because I like their eateries and they are small enough to grow fast. Alas, they seem to have some money problems. But my research led me to a review of Panera, with a much broader menu and at a different stage where growth is possible, now on the bottom line where it was on the top line for the previous decade. Watching both, and will see what happens.

Usually punny headline spinning off of The Blues Brothers, and if you don’t get it it is my bad, not yours.

I could have made a really quick 20% if I had pulled the trigger on the June 20 plummet first thing in the morning, but I missed it and it climbed. I thought it may bounce again the next day and set a limit, and it bounced lower than I expected and not as high back up as I had hoped.

Now my hopes are pinned on the wisdom of a Fool who sees at least a 25% upside over the 3 to 6 months.

Looking at the LVS chart over the last few years, periodic growth leaps appear to have an occasional $40 fall back support point. Hoping to jump into the next one without being reminded why the windows don’t open in Vegas hotels.

This thought brought to me by news of an expanded stock buy back program delivered through my Yahoo News Alert.

Weak headline, I know. So, while generally borderline about Capital One, I have noticed that every company that buys whatever discount brokerage I am using does well in the following two years, so hoping history repeats itself once I get in at my $54 target.

I know a lot of good people that work there, and their majority stake in VMWare looks like a good point to step in… at $22.00
