With Chipotle in activist's sights, Piper reviews restaurant activism success
Noting that activist investors have recently disclosed their involvement with both Chipotle (CMG) and Fiesta Restaurant Group (FRGI), Piper Jaffray analyst Nicole Miller Regan took a look back at 149 activist campaigns that occurred in the restaurant industry from 1997 to now and found that 70% of the campaigns are followed by positive returns in the year following a campaign announcement. Of note, two-thirds of those campaigns are followed by returns of more than 20%, said Regan, who added that she expects M&A to become more prevalent in the restaurant sector. Some smaller names she offers for investors to consider in this context include Bravo Brio (BBRG), Ignite Restaurant (IRG), Potbelly (PBPB), BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) and Noodles & Company(NDLS).

BJ's Restaurants acquisition by Darden could make sense, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc believes that an acquisition of BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) by Darden (DRI) "could create long-term value for both companies." BJ's sales levels suggest that it should open new restaurants, but it lacks the funds to do so, while Darden has had trouble meeting its sales growth targets and has indicated that it could look to make acquisitions, KeyBanc stated. The firm keeps Overweight ratings on both names.

BJ's Restaurants upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Nick Setyan upgraded BJ's Restaurant to Neutral and raised its price target to $41 from $31.50 following checks that indicate inline Q1 same-store-sales growth and the potential for 2H 2017 same-store-sales growth and margin improvement. The analyst increased his 2H comp expectations by 50 bps and said the expected rollout of higher average check slow roasted items, hand-held tablet/ordering technology, and third party delivery initiatives driving 2H mix and transaction growth.
