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, "Although shares of Brinker have outperformed the industry in a year’s time, earnings estimates for the current quarter and year have been stable over the past two months, limiting the stock's upside potential. Also, high costs associated with restaurant operations might hurt its profitability in the future. The company is plagued with intense competition characterizing the industry. Various sales building efforts are also causing the company to see dented margins as cost from these efforts are high. However, we are encouraged by Brinker’s aggressive expansion and sales-building initiatives along with increased investments in technology and continual focus on take-out businesses. Particularly, 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 the bottom and top lines." (1/16/2019) 2.
