Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BJ's Restaurants stock:
  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating on BJ’s Restaurants (BJRI), though lower our price target to $72, from $84, following mixed 4Q18 (December) results." (2/22/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BJ’s Restaurants have outperformed the industry in a year. The company is likely to continue the uptrend, given its better-than-expected performance in each of all of the trailing four quarters. While BJ Restaurants’ high-quality slow-roasted menu has been boosting foot traffic, daily Brewhouse Specials are contributing directly to the company’s top line. Notably, the company’s extensive focus on refining and streamlining its menu is the key driver for improved traffic. BJ’s Restaurants is also investing heavily in technology-driven initiatives, like digital ordering to boost sales. However, higher cost of sales and labor expenses due to increased wages are expected to continue hurting profits. The company's high vulnerability to the inconsistent nature of consumer discretionary spending further add to the woes." (1/21/2019)
