Brinker initiated with a Hold at Loop Capital

Brinker, Darden, Chuy's Holdings downgraded to Underperform at BMO Capital
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Andrew Strelzik also downgraded Brinker (EAT), Darden (DRI), and Chuy's Holdings (CHUY) to Underperform from Market Perform as part of his broader casual dining sector report and lowered their respective price target to $40 from $43, $96 from $105, and $23 from $28. The analyst cites expected deceleration of industry comps starting in Q4 of this year as a result of wider food-at-home/food-away-from-home gap coming from food commodity deflation. Strelzik says all of the downgraded companies have a tight correlation between comps and commodity prices and sees their EBITDA multiple expansions coming under pressure. The analyst adds that the widening gap will make the recent multiple expansion in the industry unsustainable in spite of recent sequential comps improvement at Brinker, strong brand positioning and value options at Darden, and "attractive" long term growth potential of new unit openings at Chuy's.
