Chuy's reports Q3 adjusted EPS 20c, consensus 29c

Reports Q3 revenue $101.2M , consensus $104.57M. On a calendar basis, comparable restaurant sales increased 0.5%. The company estimates that unfavorable weather conditions during Q3 more than offset the favorable impact from lapping Hurricanes Harvey and Irma last year by approximately 30 basis points. The company said, "Despite top-line improvement, we experienced a challenging third quarter as we continued to face industry-wide labor cost pressure and heavier rainfall than normal that resulted in the wettest September in history in most of our core Texas markets, which further muted our results by reducing our patio sales by over 18%. As we look towards the remainder of the year, we are encouraged that our new marketing efforts, that are being tested in November and December, will build added awareness and frequency and set us up well for successful execution during 2019. Weathering the current short-term challenge is a key priority for us, and as a result, we will focus on labor efficiency, technology initiatives and other margin enhancements that should help us build a foundation for long-term sales growth and profitability. With this operating focus, front and center, we will also be limiting our development during 2019 to five to seven restaurants."

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.

M&A interest could put near-term floor under restaurant valuations, says Baird
Baird analyst David Tarantino said Sonic's (SONC) agreement to be acquired by Inspire Brands, which also bought Buffalo Wild Wings last year, underscores that private equity firms continue to have interest in putting money to work in the restaurant sector, which he thinks could help to put a floor on the valuations of publicly-traded restaurant stocks. Among the stocks in the sector that he covers, Tarantino views Jack in the Box (JACK), El Pollo Loco (LOCO), Chuy's (CHUY), Habit Restaurants (HABT) and Potbelly (PBPB) as among those that theoretically could attract buyout interest at their current multiples, he tells investors.

Sonic downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh downgraded Sonic (SONC) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that given the premium valuation that Inspire Brands has agreed to pay he does not expect any competing bids. The analyst, who raised his price target on Sonic shares to $43.50 from $40, added that he views Roark's acquisition of the company as "somewhat unique" and does not expect the "floodgates of restaurant M&A to open." His previously published list of potential takeout targets in the restaurant space includes Red Robin (RRGB), Chuy's (CHUY) and BJ's Restaurants (BJRI).
