Why I Loaded Up on This Mega-Growth Stock

In the following video, Fool analysts Austin Smith and Jeremy Phillips discuss Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG  ) , a company whose stock has been on a bit of a wild ride in recent months.

Chipotle is the only brick-and-mortar store Jeremy would even consider owning in his portfolio, he says. With an average meal price of about $10, Chipotle is a machine that pumps through customers at its busy 1,300 stores, he says. It makes high-quality food and will continue to expand its operations in the fast-casual market.

Chipotle has a lot of room for growth, Austin says. It can expand both here in the U.S. and internationally. It also has yet to roll out its Asian-inspired Shophouse stores outside the Washington, D.C., market.

After trading at up to 50 times earnings last year, Chipotle has fallen to about 30 times earnings. That puts in in line with many competitors. Yet Chipotle has much more room for growth, Austin says.

Chipotle Mexican Grill has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Garder and has soared 387.33% since he recommended the company in January 2007. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential and helping likeminded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. Learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service, Supernova.

    After reading so much about this company and the high price of it's stock, I finally went to try it's food.

    Worst Mexican food I have ever tasted...I don't think I'll ever return...only fool will eat this crap...

    At about the same price per meal, Panera bread offers decent food and a much lower entry price for it's stock....
