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 underperformed the industry in a year’s time, we are encouraged by the company's robust top- and bottom-line growth. The company’s traffic-building strategies and efforts to capture increased market share boosted the performance. 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. Estimates for current quarter and year have been stable over the past 60 days." (4/18/2019) 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."
