Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Looking forward, management's forecast is positive, but realistic. Earnings are expected to be $7.40-8.00 per share compared to $7.40 in fiscal 2022 as comparable-store sales should increase by 4-6%. The company will open up to 60 new restaurants, which doubles 2021's expansion rate. Also, Darden raised its dividend by 10%. It currently pays a robust 3.67%, based on a low 59% payout ratio. Darden trades at a 17.83x PE, just slightly higher than its 17x forward PE, but far below the 31.6x industry average. Read 3 Options to Profit from Falling Crude Oil for our full analysis.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly The owner of such iconic brands as Red Lobster, Olive Garden and Longhorn Steakhouse. As customers return to sit down dining, earnings will look to expand quickly. Recently reported earnings beat expectations and support an impressive 32% ROE. The dividend was increased by 10%, the 3rd boost since the pandemic began. We recommend a stop loss at $98, looking to achieve $152 -- upside over 32%. Yield 3.87% (Analysts’ price target is $151.59)

DON'T BUY
It has been hit by many downgrades. He expects a disappointing report next week due to food and labour inflation, plus a cash-strapped consumer. Also, they are sensitive to fuel costs.

BUY
The market prefers Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP) stock as rates rise and tech is unfashionable. The PEG ratio is a key metric. These shares pay big dividends or buyback shares. Their latest quarter disappointed, taking a big hit from Omicron and food inflation. But the former is now behind us and food inflation could peak in the second half this year. If you buy now, you can benefit later with this stock. Trades at 17x earnings and pays a 3.5% dividend yield. A well-run restaurant chain.

BUY
It reports Friday. Restos have made a big comeback. Darden has deep pockets and can stay competitive, so he expects good numbers.

BUY
Up 25% this year. Buy. During the pandemic people ordered out and now people are dining in. The chart says this wants to bounce. He'd still buy this. He likes the chain and restaurants. The future looks brighter than the present.

TOP PICK
The company is taking more market share compared to competitors. People will go to restaurants with the economy reopening. With the pandemic shuttering many smaller players, the big players should dominate. Social media mentions have increased by 20% in the last 24 hours.
food services
BUY
It's taken more market share during Covid and is pulling away from the pack. The CEO said that the first thing people do when they get vaccinations is to go to a restaurant. The pandemic has lasted just long enough to wipe out the little guys and left the bigger players to dominate.
food services
BUY
It reports Thursday. It's had a good run and he expects good numbers, given the scarcity value of this stock and the Last Man Standing thesis during the upheaval that all restos have faced during Covid.
food services
COMMENT
Trade this medium-term as a reopening play, but after that is downside: food and labour costs will rise and there will be a labour shortage. As the economy reopens, people will dine-in and not take-out as they did during Covid.
food services
BUY
Last summer, Bogota Chow steakhouse sold 1,300 steaks a week way past their normal 500 after the first stimulus cheques were issued. Darden controls costs well and have a good, diverse range of brands. The valuation makes sense.
food services
COMMENT
New York will soon ban indoor dining and he expects the rest of the country to follow, which will impact Darden. But long term it will survive. He expects good guidance when they report next week, but the stock has run up lately.
