Definately a newbie here. All I do is read, read, and read. A real slow learner here, very cautious too. Heck I can't even decide yet what brokerage firm I want to go with. Thought Zecco, but looks like they were a pumper too lolol.
But I keek following SPKL on Ihub.....anbd I keep wondering is this one of the slickest P&d there is or is a real thing. I have no position in this stock and wont have one anytime soon....just wondering what some of you here think about it.....the only thing I seem yto have learned in my studies is who do you trust, with their thoughts on a stock. However i have piocked a few that I think may not be BS'ers

Spicy Pickle Announces Two New Restaurants in Two New States
New Openings Mark the 29th and 30th Restaurants Opened
DENVER, CO, Oct 22, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) -- Spicy Pickle(R) fast casual restaurants (OTCBB: SPKL) today announced two new restaurants have opened bringing the current total to 30 open restaurants. The two new restaurants represent the first Spicy Pickle restaurants in their respective states, exposing the brand in new geographic areas.
The restaurant in Hattiesburg, Mississippi opened today October 22, 2007, and is the first Spicy Pickle opened in the South East region of the United States. The restaurant is located at 6156 HWY 98, Suite 100, Hattiesburg, MS 39402.
The Hattiesburg franchisee has committed to a total of three restaurants in the area.
The second restaurant in Fishers, Indiana opened on October 19, 2007. Located in the Indianapolis metropolitan area, this restaurant is the first of ten scheduled to open in the area. It is located at 8235 E. 116th St. Fishers, IN 46038.
Marc Geman, CEO of Spicy Pickle(R) Franchising, Inc., commented: "We are excited to open these restaurants in new geographic regions. We look forward to offering Spicy Pickle cuisine to new customers who have never had the opportunity to enjoy our food, and hope to expand rapidly in these new regions."
By the end of 2007, Spicy Pickle(R) anticipates opening approximately 8-10 more units, bringing its network to approximately 40 restaurants in 13 states. Over 50 additional franchise development agreements have also been signed.
In addition to its franchise activity, Spicy Pickle(R) currently has a breakfast menu in test, potentially opening a new daypart for the chain. The company is also building a major commissary in Denver to cost-effectively supply its local restaurants with artisan breads and sweet treats, baked daily according to Spicy Pickle's high standards. All other restaurants nationwide will continue to bake their artisan breads in-house. The Denver commissary is expected to open by the end of the year.

I'm new to this trading game as well. I use TD Ameritrade. I like it although I have never used any other brokers. I have experienced excellent customer service with them they are very helpful. I like SPKL it looks more like a long term thing to me not something that would run in a few days but increase is value slowly but surely. I know its not all about fundamentals but its seems like a solid company, and has some tremendous growth rates for a franchise. I believe Subway was growing like this in the 90's. There isn't a store in my location but a few of my friends in Colorado said that it's great. It was a steal back in august for .50 when they did their IPO. It's not in my portfolio but I like to keep and eye on it just to see what happens might buy some if it happens slip some where below 1.00.
