Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD) serves up its famous wings in 14 original sauces and four original spice combinations — but don’t believe for a second that’s all B-dubs serves up.
Its guests across 835 locations in 48 states can order a wide variety of food, and also can watch just about every sports event on its usually loaded cable or dish system on BWLD’s plethora of screens. BWLD is all about the atmosphere: sporty, but family-oriented.
How is it playing out? Well, BWLD brings about $835 million in revenues for earnings of $54 million, and BWLD already has told analysts it expects to achieve net earnings growth of 20% for fiscal 2012. An 18% return on equity and $151 million in cash flow looks pretty good, too, but that news is even better when you factor in the absence of any long-term debt on the books.
There’s no dividend, but BWLD still looks like a nice long-term play since — let’s face it — everyone loves buffalo wings.
