Today, Fool.com analysts Anand Chokkavelu and Matt Koppenheffer review Chipotle's big earnings miss on Thursday after the market close.

While some of the metrics look strong in a vacuum, when compared with Chipotle's past performance and the expectations that investors have baked into the stock, they're understandably disappointing. 

This is a growth investor's worst nightmare, but all the pessimism could be spelling some success for value investors in the long run.
