Del Frisco's (DFRG) Catches Eye: Stock Jumps 9.2%
Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc. DFRG was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 9% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This reverses the recent trend for the company—as the stock is now down 4.1% in the past one-month time frame.
The upside was driven by reports of a potential buyout of the steakhouse chain.
The company has seen three negative estimate revisions in the past few weeks, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter has also moved lower over the past few weeks, suggesting there may be trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward, to see if this recent move higher can last.
Del Frisco's currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.
