Could higher prices at Chipotle mean bigger margins for the company and its investors?

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion with host Chris Hill and analysts Ron Gross, James Early, and Charly Travers.

Despite higher food costs, shares of Chipotle (CMG 1.56%) were up Friday after first-quarter profits rose 22%. In this segment, Ron Gross analyzes Chipotle's slowing same-store sales as well as prospects for the restaurant chain raising prices on consumers and what it will mean for the company's bottom line.

The relevant video segment can be found between 8:12 and 8:55.
