Extreme over-reaction to a downgrade. The company is on target to report good sales and earnings. The price of gas is not going to keep people away as these restaurants are neigborhood restauarants. The analyst is an idiot.
i used to work for darden from 98-2004 and i have kept my 401k with them since then. it has split 2x so far, and i am loving it. i bought through stock options at 17.00 a share, and when it splits 3-2, omg, what can one say?? i just keep making money, and the next time it splits, i will actually buy stocks out of my own pocket at this is just as good as gold. where can you go and spend 10,000.00 and in 3-5 yrs get a 3-2?? yep, you do the math. best deal going and not as shaky as gold or gas or oil. do some research and let me know what you find out. i am still collecting and making money now without any input from me at all. i am loving it!!!!
