Traders weigh buying the dip in Jack in the Box as comp sales disappoint

The "Fast Money" traders weighed the fast-food stocks after Jack in the Box reported disappointing same-store sales growth.

The fast-food chain said comparable-store sales grew 0.5 percent during the quarter, below analyst estimates for growth of about 1.6 percent according to a FactSet consensus estimate. The miss sent the stock 3 percent lower in extended trading.

Trader Guy Adami said he's surprised the stock has not sold off more than it already has. He said the real problem is the company's forward guidance for fiscal 2017. Adami said, however, that he would be interested in buying the stock if it pulled back to $93 or $94 a share.

Trader Tim Seymour said that Jack in the Box isn't the most attractive stock in the fast food space. He said investors should look at Yum Brands, McDonald's or even Domino's Pizza.
