Buffalo Wild Wings stock is apparently through the roof thanks to what investors may one day refer to as “the Great World Cup Bounce of 2014.” CNN Money reports it hit a record high yesterday — up 6 percent to $166 — after Sunday’s USA-Portugal match filled locations to capacity, some with hour-long waits, mostly, one supposes, because soccer is best watched in a bar. (Unlike the other football, whose Super Bowl merely warrants 50-piece McNuggets runs.) CNN is pretty bullish; it advices investors to go ahead and buy stock because “June for bar and grills is relatively a quiet period,” and the chain “really doesn’t have any competitors.” [CNN Money]
