Darden price target raised to $140 from $130 at Loop Capital

Loop Capital analyst Lynne Collier raised her price target on Darden to $140 and kept her Buy rating after its "solid" Q3 earnings and increased guidance. The analyst cites the company's better than expected margins and comps of 2.8% that came in spite of its reduced incentives and promotions across the portfolio. Collier adds that while still negative, the same-store sales of Darden's Cheddar's concept have also improved sequentially. The analyst continues to view the company as one of her "favorite ideas" thanks to its "best-in-class management, continued market share gains, economies of scale and an attractive return of cash to shareholders."

Darden price target raised to $130 from $125 at Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Jeremy Scott raised his price target for Darden Restaurants to $130 from $125 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares following the company's fiscal Q3 results. The key headline was "significantly" better than expected restaurant margins, which were powered by labor productivity across all concepts, Scott tells investors in a research note titled "Rolling Downhill." He believes Darden's value and service-led model, "supported by best-in-class operating fundamentals," will continue to pull market share over the coming years.

Darden price target raised to $134 from $119 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Peter Saleh raised his price target on Darden to $134 and kept his Buy rating, calling the company a "casual dining outlier" with expanding margin in the most recent quarter in spite of the labor cost headwinds. The analyst notes Darden's same-store sales gains, but notes that he is particularly impressed with its "restaurant-level margin expansion that is materially outpacing the peer group", adding that the top-line and margin growth are indicative of the company being "increasingly unique" in casual dining category.

Underperform
Darden Q3 earnings driven by stronger margins and comps, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Andrew Strelzik nudged his price target on Darden to $99 from $97 after its Q3 earnings beat that reflected the company's stronger same-store sales and margins and led the management to boost its FY19 projections for the 3rd straight quarter. The analyst also raises his FY19 and FY20 EPS outlook by 11c and 6c to $5.78 and $6.35 respectively, but keeps his Underperform rating for the stock. Strelzik maintains that he expects "slowing casual dining trends to pressure valuations across the group" and believes that risk/reward for Darden shares "favors the downside".

Darden price target raised to $141 from $136 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Jake Bartlett raised his price target on Darden to $141 and kept his Buy rating after its "strong" Q3 results, saying its earnings beat and higher than expected comps gave him greater confidence in the company's ability to sustain traffic and drive margin expansion. The analyst attributes the quarter to Darden's "strong operating execution and value proposition" as well as "solid restaurant demand" suggesting that the industry has the pricing power to offset cost inflation. Bartlett adds that while FY20 unit openings forecast was lower than he expected, he sees acceleration in new restaurants the following year.
