Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc together with its subsidiaries operates Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants, which serves a menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads, made using fresh ingredients.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is the largest player in the $10 billion-plus domestic fast-casual Mexican restaurant category. Its menu includes burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads, which are made from higher-quality ingredients than at quick-service restaurants. Because customers can choose from four different meats, two types of beans, and an array of extras, more than 65,000 menu combinations are possible. As of December, the firm operated 2,300 restaurants in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

Never a Better Time to Pile on Chipotle The situation caused by the SEC filing makes the time ripe to add to your CMG position
Shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) have been tumbling since Chipotle touched its 52-week high of $499 in May 2017. The decline accelerated this week as Chipotle’s management warned investors about rising costs in a recent Securities Exchange Commission filing.

Bill Ackman Comments on Chipotle Mexican Grill Guru stock highlight
On September 6, 2016, we announced a 9.9% stake in Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) which we purchased at an average price of $405 per share. Chipotle has built a superb brand pioneering the “fast casual” restaurant industry with the success of its outstanding product offering, unique culture, and powerful economic model. We have followed the business for years, noting how it has disrupted the fast food industry with its high quality, delicious and customizable hot meals that are prepared quickly and sold at affordable prices. The company has been significantly negatively impacted by food safety issues beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015 which caused a peak decline in average unit sales of 36%. In response, the company has implemented enhanced food safety protocols over the past year, and worked to win back lost customers. While traffic and sales have begun to recover, average unit volumes were still 19% below peak levels as of the fourth quarter of 2016. Read more...
