What are Wall Street analysts saying about BJ's Restaurants stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BJ's Restaurants stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "BJ’s Restaurants’ shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. We are optimistic about the company’s growth, as diverse sales-driving efforts bolstered its top-line performance in the first quarter of 2018. Further, earning and revenues not only surged year-over-year but also surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results were driven by improved comps and restaurant operating margins. BJ Restaurants’ high-quality slow-roasted menu has been favoring growth in foot traffic, while daily Brewhouse Specials are contributing directly to the company’s top line. Apart from menu innovation, the company’s cost containment initiatives are improving margins. Also, of late, earnings estimates for the current year have inched up, reflecting analysts’ confidence on its future potential. However, high costs and limited international presence raise concerns." (6/13/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We maintain our BUY rating and would view any potential weakness in shares as a buying opportunity (down ~ 4% AH). While Q2 results and the company’s QTD sales outlook fell short, we remain confident in our thesis: (1) We believe the brand’s polished" casual positioning remains relevant with consumers. (2) Off-premise represents a significant opportunity as to-go"/delivery represents just ~5% of sales, which is well below the industry average of 10%-11%. (3) Our checks indicate a strong consumer response to BJRI’s new, slow-roasted menu items, which we anticipate will ultimately drive a higher check average. (4) We believe that BJRI has the opportunity to more than double its store base from current levels. (5) We see an attractive risk/reward as shares are trading at just 7x NTM EBITDA, which is one of the lowest multiples in the industry and more than one standard deviation vs. its historical average."
