(10/30/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Brinker’s aggressive expansion strategies and sales building initiatives like streamlining of menu and loyalty program should boost comps. Increased focus on company-owned restaurants, which allows it to have full control over operations, is also expected to boost the bottom as well as the top line. Also, various operational, remodeling and digital initiatives are likely to drive growth. Backed by such initiatives, Brinker’s shares have outperformed the industry’s rally in the past year. Earnings estimates for the current quarter and year have also increased over the past two months, reflecting analysts’ optimism surrounding the company’s future earnings potential. However, the company’s revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in 10 of the trailing 13 quarters, mainly due to traffic decline at its restaurants.
