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)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $67 price target on Dave & Buster’s (PLAY) ahead of the post-close release of F1Q19 (April) results on Tuesday, June 11. Our F1Q19 EPS estimate of $1.15 is unchanged (vs. $1.12 Street), as is our +2.0% blended comp estimate (vs. +1.8% Street). We raise our F2Q19 (July) EPS estimate to $0.90, from $0.89 (vs. $0.89 Street), as we raise our blended comp estimate to +2.3%, from +1.8% (vs. +1.5% Street), from the launch of the Men in Black (MIB): International VR attraction. We still project low-teen percent EPS growth in FY19 of $3.26 (vs. $3.25 prior, $3.08 Street, and $2.84-$3.16 implied guidance), and an acceleration to 20% EPS growth in vs. $3.48 Street)."
