What are Wall Street analysts saying about Darden Restaurants stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Most of Darden’s brands have witnessed growth over the past few quarters given various sales initiatives like simplifying kitchen systems, operational excellence, menu innovation along with technology-driven moves. The acquisition of Cheddar's has added an undisputed casual dining value leader to Darden's portfolio of differentiated brands, which is expected to further drive comps. Initiatives to attract guests at Olive Garden, LongHorn and other units also bode well. Further, it’s efforts to check costs are commendable. Backed by these efforts, Darden’s first-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the 12th consecutive quarter. However, Darden’s shares have underperformed the industry over the past six months. Going forward, rising labor costs and a non-franchised business model are likely to dampen the company’s profits, while a soft industry backdrop might pressurize comps." (11/6/2017)
  • 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)
