A number of casual dining stocks are dropping after a major player in the sector, Darden Restaurants (DRI) predicted that its earnings per share in its second quarter ended November 25 would be significantly below analysts' expectations. Darden, which operates Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants, expects its earnings per share in the second quarter to be 25c-26c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 47c. Moreover, Darden predicted that its U.S. same-restaurant sales would sink 2.7%. Finally, the casual dining operator provided FY13 earnings per share guidance of $3.29-$3.49, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $3.88. Darden's promotions last quarter "did not resonate with financially stretched consumers as well as newer promotions from competitors," said Darden CEO Clarence Otis, adding that the company would look to change its promotions soon. In late morning trading, Darden dropped 9.86% to $47.25. Other casual dining companies also retreated, with The Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) falling 5.31% to $32.25, BJ's Restaurant (BJRI) giving back 4.10% to $32.96, Brinker (EAT) declining 3.16% to $28.92,Texas Roadhouse (TXRH) losing 3.65% to $16.09, and DineEquity (DIN) falling 1.85% to $61.56.

06:28 EDTEATImpact of low oil prices extends beyond oil industry, WSJ says
The fall in crude prices is having a ripple effect that extends beyond the oil industry, the Wall Street Journal reports. Sales of single family homes in Houston were down 10% year over year in October, the report says, and restaurants in Texas and the Southwest have seen a drop in sales and customer traffic. Brinker (EAT) credited weak oil prices for downbeat results in states that rely heavily on the energy industry, the report says. Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and American Eagle Energy (AMZG) have both exited Bakken last month, with Occidental selling its North Dakota assets and American Eagle seeking chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, the report says.
