Chegg, Brinker International, Microsoft, SAP and Appian highlighted as Zacks Bull and Bear of the Day
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") today downgraded Brinker International, Inc.'s ("Brinker") Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B1 from Ba3, Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to B1-PD from Ba3-PD and senior unsecured non-guaranteed notes to B3 from B2. This concludes Moody's review for downgrade initiated on March 23, 2020. "The downgrades reflect that Brinker's revenues and earnings will remain well below last year even after many of its restaurants have opened given the material limitations on in-unit dining capacity that are expected to be put in place in local jurisdictions to maintain social distancing," stated Bill Fahy, Moody's Senior Credit Officer.
Restaurant stocks have been whipsawed by poor earnings, Covid-19 warnings from health experts, and hopes about reopenings and vaccine progress. Analyst Brian Vaccaro notes that restaurants’ ability to raise capital in recent weeks has bolstered balance sheets, in many cases pushing off any concerns about liquidity to a year or more. “While risks obviously remain, for investors seeking tactical long ideas in an environment of improving weekly sales data as more states reopen (and capacity limits are raised),” there are still restaurant stocks worth buying, he writes.
Comments from the Fed chairman certainly didn't remove the doom and gloom surrounding the restaurant industry.
I wonder which chains may not survive this crisis without having to file for bankruptcy, and whether the crisis will alter the future of company capital structures.
