What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dave & Buster's Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dave & Buster's Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although shares of Dave & Buster's have underperformed the industry in the past year, we are encouraged by the company’s solid revenue growth in the last-rported quarter. Its various sales-building initiatives, increased focus on distinguished offerings and dependence on gaming set it apart from other restaurants. In the fiscal first quarter, its revenues rose 9.5% from the prior-year quarter number. The upside was primarily driven by consistent unit growth, and robust Amusements and Other revenues as well as Food and Beverage revenues. Consistent efforts to build sales and improve margins through various initiatives have also been key growth drivers. However, the company trimmed its 2019 outlook, which is concerning. Also, rising labor costs and a non-franchised business model might hurt profits." (9/2/2019)
