11:38 EDTDRI, BWLD, DENN, RT, EATBrinker retreats after analyst downgrades on industry concerns
Shares of casual dining restaurant operator Brinker (EAT) are falling after RBC Capital downgraded the stock in a note to investors today. Brinker owns and franchises the Chili's and Maggiano's chains. WHAT'S NEW: Casual dining trends remain "worrisome" this summer, RBC Capital analyst David Palmer wrote. Data compiled during 2006-2012 show that visits to major casual dining trends by upper class "millennials" fell 12% during the period, while visits by low income millennials tumbled 29% over those six years. Consequently, Palmer expects same-store sales growth for the causal dining sector to remain near 0%. Brinker's new initiatives should enable the company to continue to grow its sales at a faster rate than the industry average, but the initiatives are unlikely to enable the company to generate "outsized" traffic for the company, the analyst contended. On a positive note, Brinker's free cash flow and share repurchases, along with its commitment to cut costs, should prevent the stock from falling too far, according to the analyst. He cut his rating on the shares to Sector Perform from Outperform and reduced his price target on the stock to $49 from $56. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other casual dining names include Darden Restaurants (DRI), Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), Denny's (DENN), and Ruby Tuesday (RT). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Brinker dropped 1.3% to $44.55.
