1 Consumer Stock to Watch

Consumer-facing companies like Darden Restaurants (NYSE: DRI  ) and Wal-Mart had a rough February, as rising gas prices and lower paychecks pinched their customers. Is Chipotle (NYSE: CMG  ) next? And how about fellow fast-casual restaurant Panera Bread (NASDAQ: PNRA  ) ? 

The Motley Fool's Alison Southwick asks contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos why he thinks Panera has what it takes to navigate this tough consumer environment.

Investors can be forgiven for thinking that a company that has returned almost 2,500% since going public probably has its best days behind it. But in the case of Panera Bread, there's reason to believe that the best is still yet to come. The stock has been on an absolute tear over the past five years, and you're invited to find out why -- and what else there is to look forward to -- in The Motley Fool's brand-new premium report on Panera. Included are key areas that investors must watch, as well as opportunities and threats facing the company both today and in the long term. As a bonus, we'll keep you up-to-date on Panera for a full year, providing expert guidance and analysis as key news develops.
