Chipotle (CMG)

Chipotle's superb 2020 performance amid a challenging backdrop was due to the successful business transformation led by CEO Brian Niccol and his team. Improved digital access, which has been a pillar of management's transformation strategy and a growing sales driver in recent years, enabled the company to serve customers with digital pickup and delivery as the pandemic began. Only three months after the onset of COVID-19 in the U.S., Chipotle returned to growth, achieving same-store sales growth of 6% in Q4, or 20% over two years.

The pandemic accelerated a shift in the company's digital sales mix from

The stock of Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG, 30-year Financials) appears to be significantly overvalued, according to GuruFocus Value calculation. GuruFocus Value is GuruFocus' estimate of the fair value at which the stock should be traded. It is calculated based on the historical multiples that the stock has traded at, the past business growth and analyst estimates of future business performance. If the price of a stock is significantly above the GF Value Line, it is overvalued and its future return is likely to be poor. On the other hand, if it is significantly below the GF Value Line,

The hedge fund manager doubled down on his favorites stocks to improve returns

In 2014, Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio) made one of the biggest mistakes of his career. He started buying shares in the healthcare company Valeant (now named Bausch Health Companies Inc. (BHC)).

The investor and manager was incredibly enthusiastic about the group's business model and CEO, Michael Pearson. Pearson, it seemed, had managed to pioneer the perfect business model. Valeant would acquire pharmaceutical businesses with vast amounts of debt and then slash costs and research and development spending to maximize cash flow after the deal.

The big mistake

Initially, the strategy worked, but then the company came under

The stock is dramatically undervalued

This stock has been on our radar since its initial public offering last year, which made headlines when its shares soared 188% on its first trading day but ended up below its debut price of 0.65 Hong Kong dollars (0.08 cents).

As an investor in Asia, Snack Empire Holdings Ltd. (HKSE:01843) quickly gained our interest because its business, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks, sells its signature fried chicken and other popular Taiwanese street snacks in both Singapore and Malaysia.

The company is an excellent long-term buy, given its growth initiatives and relative valuation

Yum China Holdings Inc. (YUMC) is a good franchise selling at a discount on Wall Street, according to Quo Vadis Capital President John Zolidis.

Last week, the operator of KFC, Pizza Hut and other fast-food brands in China reported fourth-quarter earnings of 35 cents per share that beat analysts' expectations of 24 cents per share.

But it warned of "significant headwinds" in the first quarter of 2021 due to a Covid-19 resurgence in some areas of China.

Wall Street took this warning seriously, sending the company's shares on a roller coaster following the report.

Still, Zolidis thinks Yum China is

A look at the company's 4th quarter financial results

On Tuesday, Chipotle (CMG) reported results for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2020.

Revenues in the quarter increased 12% to $1.4 billion, attributable to 6% growth in units (ending the year with 2,768 locations) and a 6% increase in comparable store sales (comps).

Considering that the company's operations are still being materially impacted by the pandemic, with 40% of dining rooms closed (and the others only offering limited seating), that's an impressive result. Comp store sales in the fourth quarter benefited from an increase in average ticket due to customer adoption of premium offerings like carne asada

Same-store sales rose 5.7%

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG) released its fourth-quarter 2020 results after the market closed on Feb. 2. While company's earnings did not meet Refinitiv's consensus estimates, revenue matched expectations.

Shares dropped nearly 4% in after-hours trading following the announcement.

By the numbers

The Newport Beach, California-based burrito chain posted adjusted earnings of $3.48 per share in the fourth quarter, up 21.7% compared to the prior-year quarter. Revenue of $1.61 billion surged 11.6% on a year-over-year basis due strong restaurant comps as well as new restaurant openings. This was partially offset by a slowdown in overseas sales. Analysts had predicted earnings

The fast-casual burrito chain is growing fast, but the numbers are beginning to cool down

After the markets closed on Feb. 2, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG) reported earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2020.

Although the company continued its breakneck growth pace and met revenue expectations, it fell short of what analysts had predicted for earnings and comparable store sales, causing the stock to stumble in after-hours trading.

Earnings overview

In full-year 2020, GAAP earnings per share came in at $12.52 while adjusted earnings were $10.73 per share. Revenue was $6 billion, a 7.1% decrease from full-year 2019. Digital sales grew 174.1% and accounted for 46.2% of sales, with comps

Billionaire investor Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio) disclosed late last week he boosted Pershing Square Capital Management's stake in The Howard Hughes Corp. (HHC) by 23.37%.

The guru's New York-based hedge fund is known for taking large positions in a handful of underperforming companies and pushing for change in order to unlock value for shareholders. While he has found success recently with Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG) and Starbucks Corp.

Some thoughts on where we stand

Seven months ago, in mid-March, I published an article in which I shared my thoughts on the state of financial markets. On the day I wrote it (March 18), markets had fallen by nearly 5% in the days session, and were down more roughly 30% from their highs a month earlier. While it was a chaotic time in the markets and in the world around us, I thought the appropriate course of action for an investor was to stay calm and remain focused on the long-term:

A look at the company's 3rd-quarter financial results

On Wednesday, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG) reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020. The company returned to growth in the third quarter, with revenues up 14% to $1.6 billion. Growth in the quarter was driven by a combination of higher same-store sales (up 8%) as well as a mid-single-digit increase in the company's footprint (up 6% year over year to 2,710 locations).

As shown below, after a difficult point in the second quarter as the company navigated through the heart of the pandemic, Chipotle has returned to two-year stacked comps well into the double digits.

A review of Pershing Square Tontine Holdings

Last week I wrote here on Gurufocus about the Pershing Square Holding (LSE:PSH) vehicle run by Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio). This vehicle is essentially a closed-end fund trading at a massive 30% discount to its net asset value.

A discount like that is especially large given the size of the fund, the fact that it has a star manager and the fact that Ackman is going to great lengths to try and close the discount. One additional reason for my optimism regarding the future of Ackman's vehicle is that a small part

Despite a challenging environment, Pershing's hospitality holdings have performed reasonably well

Previously, I discussed some of the bigger winners for Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio)'s Pershing Square Capital - his credit default swap bet against the stock market in March and home improvement retailer Lowe's (LOW). Two other solid performers in the fund's portfolio were Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and Starbucks (SBUX) - here's what accounted for their gains.

Between Jan.1 and Aug. 25, Chipotle and Starbucks are up 8% and 3.7% respectively. While these might not sound like earth-shattering returns, they are impressive in a context where food and drink consumption have fallen.

Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG)

Chipotle's outstanding performance this year has been driven by its successful business transformation led by CEO Brian Niccol and his team, who have made Chipotle one of the best performing restaurant brands globally, with 52% year-to-date stock price appreciation. Digital access has been a pillar of management's strategy, fueling double-digit same-store sales growth in 2019, and enabling the brand to return to growth only three months after the onset of Covid-19 in the U.S.

Following a very strong start to the year, with same-store sales up 12% to 13% in January and February, Chipotle's same-store sales

Discussion of markets and holdings

To the Shareholders of Pershing Square Holdings, Ltd.:

Pershing Square Holdings generated strong performance during the first half of 2020 and year-to-date,5 as our NAV total return per share increased 28.9% and 44.1%6 respectively, compared with the S&P's half-year and year-to-date total return of -3.1% and 7.9%.3 Our strong absolute and relative performance was driven by our late February and early March hedging program in the index CDS markets, the subsequent unwinding of that hedge beginning on March 12th, and the contemporaneous reinvestment of nearly all of the gains from hedging by March 18th, which allowed us to take advantage
