Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Denny's stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Denny's Corp., formerly Advantica Restaurant Group, Inc., is one of the largest restaurant companies, operating moderately-priced restaurants: Denny's, Hardee's, Quincy's, El Pollo Loco, Coco's and Carrows. The company believes its restaurants benefit from the diversity of the restaurant concepts, the generally strong market positions and consumer recognition enjoyed by these chains, the benefits of a centralized support system for purchasing, menu development, human resources, management information systems, site selection, restaurant design and construction. " (5/3/2019) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $21 price target on Denny’s (DENN) following yesterday’s release of in-line 1Q19 (March) results. DENN posted 1Q19 pro forma EPS of $0.13, in line with consensus, but below our estimate of $0.14. However, revenue beat projections with a +1.2% blended comp (vs. +1.0% Maxim and +0.9% Street). We lower our 2019 EPS estimate to $0.74, from $0.75, and our 2020 EPS estimate to $0.97, from $0.98, though this primarily reflects changes in expense timing tied to refranchising."
