Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. develops and operates fast-casual, fresh Mexican food restaurants in the United States, Canada, and England. Its restaurants primarily offer burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads. As of June 21, 2012, it operated approximately 1,260 restaurants. Chipotle Mexican Grill has a market cap of $12.16 billion and is part of the services sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 52.7, equal to the average leisure industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 13.5% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are eight analysts that rate Chipotle Mexican Grill a buy, two analysts rate it a sell, and 11 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Chipotle Mexican Grill as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.

On the positive front, Country Style Cooking Restaurant Chain ( CCSC), up 7.6%, Empire Resorts ( NYNY), up 6.3%, Sonic Corporation ( SONC), up 3.5%, and Rick's Cabaret International ( RICK), up 2.8%, were all gainers within the leisure industry with McDonald's Corporation ( MCD) being today's featured leisure industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the leisure industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Leisure&Entert ( PEJ) while those bearish on the leisure industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Services ( SCC).
