Market Perform
Darden downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jeff Farmer downgraded Darden Restaurants to Market Perform citing accelerating casual dining segment same-same-store declines in June. The analyst expects a diminished rate of upward earnings revision in coming quarters. He cut his price target range for the shares to $66-$70 from $70-$74.

Sell
Darden downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Paul Westra downgraded Darden based on the firm's belief that the U.S. economy will probably enter a recession within nine months. As a result, the firm now expects two year industrywide comps to come in at 0.5% in the first half of 2018, versus the consensus outlook of 1.75%, Westra stated. The analyst says that Darden's Olve Garden and Longhorn brands are already seeing weak demand, while the company lacks "brand agility" amid "fierce competition." Target $53.

Outperform
Darden at a 'misplaced discount' to peers, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Bittner believes the market has presented another Darden buying opportunity, with stock valuation sitting at a "misplaced discount" to peers. Further, the analyst believes better in-store execution, improved off-premise business and elevated brand momentum can sustain sales trends above peers. Bittner also sees limited risk to upcoming Q1 results. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $70 price target on the shares.
