When El Pollo Loco (LOCO) burst onto the scene, it generated massive initial investor interest. The stock burst out of the gates on its first day and spiked to its 52-week high of $41.70 in record time. That flurry of interest in El Pollo Loco proved unsustainable and The Crazy Chicken (El Pollo Loco) soon stabilized in the $35-$38 range between September 2014 and November 2014.

Thereafter, the stock went into freefall, dropping from a November high of over $37 p/s to a December 31 low of $19.97 p/s – a decline of over 45% in just a few months.
