What are Wall Street analysts saying about Brinker International stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Brinker International stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Brinker have outperformed the industry in a year’s time owing to robust top- and bottom-line growth. The company’s traffic-building strategies and efforts to capture increased market share boosted the performance. In second-quarter fiscal 2019, the company’s earnings came in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues surpassed the same. Brinker’s strong To-Go business continues to drive the performance. Meanwhile, Chili’s turnaround strategy has started to pay off. Increased focus on company-owned restaurants, which allows it to have full control over operations, is also expected to boost results. However, high costs associated with restaurant operations might hurt its profitability in the future. Further, dismal performance of international franchise comparable sales at Chili's restaurants is a major concern. The company is plagued with intense competition characterizing the industry." (1/31/2019)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Brinker International (EAT) reported pro forma F1Q19 (September) pro forma EPS of $0.47, which beat the $0.45 Street mean, but were below our $0.48 estimate." (10/30/2018)
