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 in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Its 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 started to pay off. Increased focus on company-owned restaurants, which allows the company 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." (5/3/2019) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $58 price target on Brinker International (EAT) following today’s release of better-than-expected F3Q19 (March) results. We raise our FY19 EPS forecast to $3.95, from $3.91, due to the F3Q beat, but lower our F4Q19 (June) EPS estimate to $1.39, from $1.42 (vs. $1.35 Street) on slightly higher food costs, though raise our blended comp estimate to +2.4%, from +2.0% (vs. +1.7% Street). We also reduce our FY20 EPS estimate to $4.29, from $4.34 (vs. $4.02 Street), but increase our blended comp estimate to +2.0%, from +1.6% (vs. +1.3% Street), as we expect third-party delivery to be a top-line catalyst. Our FY21 EPS estimate of $4.84 (vs. $4.24 Street) reflects our outlook for continued 1.5%-2.0% comp growth and a return to margin expansion."
