What are Wall Street analysts saying about Del Frisco's Restaurant Group stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Del Frisco's Restaurant Group stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, LLC develops, owns and operates three contemporary, complementary restaurant concepts: Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, Sullivan's Steakhouse and Del Frisco's Grille. The restaurants offer selections that include steaks, lobster tails, lamb chops and fresh seafood, as well as an extensive wine selection. Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, LLC is headquartered in Wichita, Kansas. " (3/12/2018)
- 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are encouraged by the traction from DFRG’s new top-line programs and margin initiatives at the Double Eagle and Grille in Q4. However, visibility remains limited as Q1 comp guidance was disappointing (down 4-5%) driven by weather and calendar shifts. In addition, ’18 EPS guidance was below Street projections driven in large part by higher than expected pre-opening expenses from expected new unit openings in ’18 and 1H19. We remain on the sidelines with a HOLD rating. Our price target remains $16, reflecting ~7.5x our new 2019 EBITDA estimate of $48.7 million." (3/9/2018)

Del Frisco's Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:DFRG) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
