    Sorry for the drop today, but is this drop in year-to-year revenue really a surprise to anybody?

    I finally bought into a couple of restaurants with significant dine in floor space. BJRI earlier this morning because last week my wife ordered take out and I picked it up at curbside. There were quite a few cars waiting in the parking lot and the staff were busy bringing it out. There was also a lot of activity with customers ordering and going in to pick up. I started looking at it and when I noticed the over 100% institutional ownership and news of the investment by the founder of Panera Bread, the relatively low pe ratio and market cap, I had to put some money to work. Let's see with expected bad earnings after the bell but some light at the end of this pandemic. God Bless and stay well.

    90% gain since 7/14. Thanks to The Turnaround Letter and Elliot Wave Trader; I'm not that smart.

    noticed big increase in long term debt on balance sheet from qtr back or so. Does anyone know what that relates to. I know they are opening restaurants but not enough to increase debt like that. |Did they acquire a business or buy back any shares.

    From Motley fool Analyst yesterday, BJ's has burn rate that should last well into 2021 relative to cash reserves, and growing off-site sales. Great signs which agree with recent rally:
    "Right now, the name of the game is damage control. BJ's serves as a great example. The company has invested in its off-premise sales offering Family Feast selections and to-go craft beer options that have helped offset some of its lost dine-in sales. BJ's sales declines were at their worst for the week ended March 24, at 82%, but that has since eased to a 70% decline during the week ended April 21. Through other cost reductions, the company has reduced its cash burn to roughly $2.5 million per week, and it has roughly $70 million of cash on its balance sheet"

    BJRI is going to get a slice of the pizza pie business! ordered a buffalo chicken pizza (to go obviously), and it was delicious! I already see them sending emails to have people pick up food and even beer and take it to go!
    Bullish

    Its actually not a bad report, If you think the margin issues they had this quarter are a one time thing not going to be the trend going forward good buying opportunity. Expectations were way to high this quarter, EPS estimates should of been around 0.60, we were up 5.5% last quarter on earnings day on a bigger EPS year to year decline percentage wise 13.2 vs 12.9 this quarter. They still have 90 million dollars left to buy back shares and that number could increase in the future they have already retired over 33% of the shares could eventually reach 50%.

    ER is after hours today and my gut feel is that numbers and guidance will be better than expected considering the pandemic. I bought because while I was there for curbside pick up, the parking lot was buzzing with activity and staff were bringing out orders as well as people showing up and going in to pick up their orders. As I was on my way home, I drove by a nearby Olive Garden location and I did not see much activity. Just a personal observation of how these restaurants are executing and dealing with the pandemic but I like DRI stock too but have not bought the stock yet. Thoughts. God Bless and stay well.

    great place to eat and decent prices for the quality of food. Very surprised at the big drop in price lately. Have not been a watcher of the stock price but notice a big spike and big drop. Probably growth investors bailing out and value investors not moving in because of high pe. But at about price of 30 good price. They are still growing nationwide and the type of restaurant that is going regional to national. Have big opportunity over next decade to open restaurants. They should be able to double restaurants over coming 5 years. one thing for sure they have the most diversified menu of any sit down restaurant I go to and they are all good tasting.

    BJ’s Restaurant does have delicious, fresh, expertly prepared food. And their craft beers are great. The food servers, bartenders, and managers are all friendly and customer-oriented. Their food & beverage costs-of-goods is below thirty percent (<30%). However, the balance sheet shows high debt to equity (I.e. leverage) for even “normal operating conditions”. And, the restaurants show excess seating capacity, with few exceptions, always. Remember that “an idle asset should be treated as a liability” to any Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
