According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BJ’s Restaurants have underperformed the S&P 500 in the past three months. Higher operating costs are expected to continue hurting profits. The company's high vulnerability to the inconsistent nature of consumer discretionary spending and limited international exposure further add to the woes. Further, in fourth-quarter 2018, the company reported mixed results, wherein earnings missed the Zacks Consensus estimate but revenues beat the same. Over the past 7 days, estimates for the current year have also witnessed downward revisions, reflecting analysts’ concern on the earnings prospects. Nevertheless, 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." (2/26/2019) 2.
