2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Guru Investment Theses on Fiesta Restaurant Group Inc

John Keeley Comments on NCR Corporation - Feb 05, 2014

NCR Corporation (NCR) was the Fund's largest detrac tor during the fourth quarter, falling over 14 percent and detracting 25 basis points of return . The nancial technology company delivered a slightly weaker than expected quarter t hat surprised us as well as the Street. They reafrmed guidance which implies a strong fourth qu arter and suggested that cash ows will continue to be cautiously managed. Since we like th e business and valuation, as well as the improved balance sheet, we are inclined to stay the course.

John Keeley Comments on Bancorp South - Feb 05, 2014

Bancorp South (BXS) was another position that made a positive contribution during the quarter and for the year. In 2013, the regional ban k climbed over 61 percent and added 91 basis points of return to the portfolio. The compan y produced a very solid quarterly earnings report and remains a core restructuring holding fea turing a new CEO, Dan Rollins, who comes from a successfully run bank in Texas, Prospe rity Bank. We believe there are consider- able operating costs that can be taken out of the b ank over a multi-year period so we remain very positive on the stock and believe it should pr oduce earnings upside over the next few years.

John Keeley Comments on Fiesta Restaurant Group - Feb 05, 2014

Fiesta Restaurant Group (FRGI) was the Fund's best performing position in the fourth quarter and for all of 2013. Over the past year the stock g ained over 240 percent and added 212 basis points of return. The fast-food chain has con tinued to restructure after spinning off Burger King restaurants and is now successfully ach ieving organic growth. We continue to believe the stock is undervalued and expect further growth ahead.
