What are analysts saying about Darden Restaurants stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Darden Restaurants stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Darden posted solid first-quarter fiscal 2018 results with the bottom and the top line surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate. In fact, the reported quarter marked the 12th successive earnings beat for the company. Going forward, various sales initiatives and technology-driven moves are expected to boost the top line. Additionally, efforts to attract guests at Olive Garden, LongHorn and other units, along with the cost saving measures are encouraging. However, Darden’s shares underperformed its industry in the past six months. A soft consumer spending environment might keep comps under pressure, while rising labor costs and a non-franchised business model are likely to dampen the company’s profits, moving ahead." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "compelling entry point." The firm's David Tarantino upgrades Darden's stock rating from Neutral to Outperform with an unchanged $94 price target.Darden's stock has lost more than 15 percent over the past three months, which makes its current valuation more attractive, Tarantino explained in his upgrade note. Specifically, the stock's current next-twelve-months (NTM) EV/EBITDA and P/E multiples are sitting 4–9 percent below their respective one year averages.While many investors are likely concerned with Darden's same-store sales outlook in the struggling casual dining industry, the company is well positioned to deliver above-average performance, the analyst noted. In fact, Darden can perform well in the restaurant sector even if overall industry trends don't improve — although it would likely imply upside to estimates.Meanwhile, management remains focused on simplifying its operations, which lead to a better service and execution and also improve the value proposition of its brands through scale advantages and quality upgrades."We believe further evidence of solid top- and bottom-line fundamentals in upcoming periods can lead to improved investor sentiment and support a return to higher valuation metrics on the shares following the recent pullback," (9/27/2017)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Hold rating on Darden Restaurants (DRI), though raise our price target to $90, from $87 ahead of the release of F4Q17 (May) earnings on Tuesday, June 27." (6/21/2017)
  • 4. Wells Fargo & Company analysts commented, "Olive Garden's healthy share gains persist, but we remain on the sideline with DRI shares trading at almost 9.5x EBITDA and now incrementally levered (through the Cheddar's acquisition) to a structurally challenged casual dining segment. DRI reported F3Q EPS of $1.32, +9% Y/Y and above the $1.27 Street estimate. Blended SSS were +0.9%, handily outpacing the +0.3% Street number. By concept, the core Olive Garden posted +1.4% SSS, ahead of the Street estimate and in line with the 400bps of average SSS outperformance (vs the casual dining peer group) seen over the last 4 quarters. LongHorn's SSS were +0.2%, ahead of the -0.1% Street estimate and just above the 250bps outperformance seen over the last 4 quarters. The FY17 EPS guidance range was increased to $3.95-4.00 from $3.87-3.94 (Street at $3.94) with a minor bump in EPS driven by (based on our model) a more modest level of labor cost pressure. Raising FY17E EPS to $4.00 from $3.95 and FY18E to $4.32 from $4.24. Model does not reflect potential acquisition accretion." (3/28/2017)
  • 5. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We recently hosted an investor dinner with Darden Restaurants’ management team: Gene Lee (President & CEO), Rick Cardenas (CFO), David George (President of Olive Garden), Todd Burrowes (President of LongHorn Steakhouse) and Kevin Kalicak (IR). Following the meeting, we are increasingly confident in our BUY thesis. While the industry backdrop remains challenging given the slowdown in restaurant sales and labor inflation, we remain confident in DRI’s ability to drive continued market share gains via an improved guest experience, off-premise, menu innovation and Olive Garden remodels."
