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, "Shares of BJ’s Restaurants have outperformed the industry in the past month and we are further encouraged after the company posted better-than-expected results in the first quarter of 2019. Its extensive focus on refining and streamlining its menu is the key driver for improved traffic. It is also investing heavily in technology-driven initiatives like digital ordering to boost sales. BJ’s Restaurants is committed to improving operating margins through cost-containment initiatives. The company is focusing more on its smaller prototype restaurants that cost roughly $1 million less than the prior prototype. However, high operating costs are expected to continue hurting profits. Its high vulnerability to the inconsistent nature of consumer discretionary spending and limited international exposure add to the woes." (5/20/2019) 2.
