It IS sick. No matter what the earnings are, stocks go up these days. Look at EAT yesterday. Their net income was lower compared to last year. Sales were lower too. However, they bought back enough stock to "beat" earnings by 3 cents and the stock goes up 7%. This is just a game. One has to be on the right side - long or short - to make money.
Some poster thought that this was the peak of EAT and suggested to short it. Since then the stock went up. Who knows? Come Monday, it can keep climbing or crash or crash and then climb. Same thing can happen to DRI. But DRI is not owned by institutions completely like EAT. So less manipulation.
