The New Dominos Pizza is awesome – DPZ @ $14 – stock up 64% since new advertising & pizza sales

I had my first new Dominos Pizza (DPZ) delivered to me at school since I’m doing an all-day writing session. At first I noticed when I opened the box it looked kind of greasy on the bottom almost like Pizza Hut. This is Dominos Pizza new “buttery garlic” crust. The pizza was piled with its new cheese and the toppings looked great. I ordered a large hand tossed pepperoni, onions, and roasted red peppers. Yum! Yum! I think I would of liked extra sauce because I’m just an extra sauce type of guy, but I was definitely impressed. I delivered pizzas for them for over 2 years and always thought the pizza was rather plain except for their new specialty pizzas. I would definitely buy again and even over Papa Johns because I feel I lost my taste for them.

My local pizza places in Virginia Beach, VA will ALWAYS top any franchise OR NEW YORK pizza. Those are Chichos Pizza (a surfer pizza bar) and Chanello’s (known as the dirty pizza joint) but I love them both. Both places are more specific in how they make there sauces. Chichos being hot and Chanellos being sweet.

DPZ @ $14 moved up hard just around November 09′ into the new year with their new pizza. I think they are doing an excellent job on their new promotion. All I can see is as a negative campaign back from competition is “We don’t have to change our sauce because we are that good”. But I think change is good and if they want to last another 50 years starting now is always smart. I predict the stock with the new sales and promoting up Dominos again will likely move up to $20 if they do very well in sales with the new pizza if it holds ground and returns customers.

I specifically liked working for Dominos Pizza because out of the 3 major chains (Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos) their stores were always the cleanest, food prep was simple, and most stores had really great technology to deliver quicker with interactive maps united with orders. Whereas the other 2 you had to do it old style making it harder if you were new or a new address popped up no one heard of. You’ll definitely get it fast if you order from Dominos (except on holidays with high ordering volume).

refinancing single family rental – extracting $31k cash to put into 2 new properties in similar area

Todays the day!!! I’m psyched since I had to wait a long aggrevating 6 months after listing my home on the MLS to sell it now I can refinance it. (a rule in the mortgage industry in which if you list your home and then take it off MLS you have to wait 6 month period before refinancing it).

So my credit score still sucks for some reason. I’m sure it has to do with my high debt/income ratio still at 650-680 which will force me to take a investment refinance loan at 80% having no PMI in the new loan with payments on $96000 at $784. I’m currently collecting $775 which would leave me a little bit negative, but I can get $31,000 cash to use on 2 new rental properties that will generate again higher ROI with long-term increase in assessment values since they are both foreclosures. I’m looking to buy 2 more single family homes in the $60-70k range that need little work and get loans at 7.5% investment making around $150-200/month cashflow which would cancel my -$25 dollar from refinancing increasing my mortgage vs. rent of $725. Plus I’d own 3 properties in the same area which are lower priced homes giving them more room to move up in price in the next 5-10 years.

I’m close to finished closing on my hawaii single family condo 3/2. I can’t wait to move in and will like refinance my mortgage in 6 months IF by some chance I can get a lower rate and use a bundle of that equity to buy more single family homes in VA or another investment in HI. Or I might just leave the equity open for something down the line.

My Visa May Calls are going to expire too. I’m getting quite frenzy over them and want to sell out extremely soon. I’m waiting because there is a huge support wick on the daily charts from yesterdays drop to $78 showing someone big buying up the stock, but it hasn’t moved past $85 yet and my options are being worthless the sooner they get to friday. I’ll be very fortunate if the stock pops up past $85 and I’m able to sell out profitably. I clearly need and want to be in aapl stock options right now, but first I need to sell out profitably up out of V calls.
