Fast Food, Fast Money In '08?


Nothing feels better after a long night of New Year's Eve partying than a big juicy burger. And few companies make a better one than CKE Restaurants , the owner of Carl's Junior and Hardies. Never shy about offering his opinion is Andy Puzder, the company's CEO.

Puzder shows the panel how his burgers compare to competitors such as Wendy’s and McDonald’s.

Please watch the video for his comparasion.

Dylan Ratigan asks the panel what they think of this stock?

Brian Schaeffer says he’s a buyer.

Either the Street is missing something or CKR is off the mark. But one way or another something doesn’t seem right, counters Guy Adami.

* Note: On Monday December 31st the Fast Money panel was made up of:
Brian Schaeffer, Van Der Moolen Capital Markets Managing Director
Carter Worth, Oppenheimer Chief Market Technician
Jon Najarian (Pete’s brother) aka The Monster
Guy Adami aka The Negotiator
