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 Dave & Buster's shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months, we remain apprehensive of high costs, a tricky consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space along with the company’s limited international presence. Also, a non-franchised model makes the company susceptible to increased expenses. Since all the restaurants are owned and operated by Dave & Buster’s, instead of signing franchise agreements and putting the burden of costs into the franchise, the company is solely responsible for the expenses of operating the business. However, the company’s unique business model, with increased dependence on gaming, sets it apart and we expect the company’s entertainment business to carry the growth story forward. Consistent efforts to build sales and improve margins through various initiatives have also been key growth drivers." (2/11/2019) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Dave & Buster’s (PLAY) reported F2Q18 (July) results EPS of $0.84, easily beating our $0.66 estimate and the $0.67 Street mean."
