They report next Friday. A weaker economy will mean people will dine at cheaper chains like Olive Garden. Some feel shares have run up too much.

Darden Restaurants
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
Darden Restaurants
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)
