Oh, I'm sorry. Did I hurt your feelings? Not sure why you're hating on Taco Bell, especially comparing it to Chipotle. Chipotle is a baby compared to Taco Bell (52% Market Share). How can you disagree with the fact that Taco Bell uses the same three ingredients for 15-25 options? And that it is the same thing for Men's Health, which they have used four basic ingredients to make the magazines for the past five years?
Taco Bell: $6.724 billion
Chipotle: $1.2 billion
Haters gonna hate. Okay. First, smaller companies grow faster. Second, how many times has Taco Bell split? Third, I hope no one listens to you, as of right now Chipotle is a horrible stock to buy, it's running about 1.15-1.30 for every dollar they actually have (I'm going off the little bit I looked at I didn't run a full analysis on their financial documents for this). However, it could go down with full analysis...but, is no where close to being in buying range.
Official Brother Chris (first recommendation on T-Nation) don't buy Chipotle stock.
McDonald's isn't in the same category as Chipotle. And, in Chipotle's category Taco Bell smashes Chipotle.
Haters gonna hate.
