DRI Stock Sinks as Darden Disappoints Again
by Christopher Freeburn | June 20, 2014 12:17 pm
On Friday, Darden Restaurants (DRI) posted quarterly results that fell short of Wall Street forecasts, sending DRI stock down almost 3% in midday trading.
DRI stock slid after Darden reported a fiscal fourth-quarter profit of $86.5 million, down from $133.2 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted EPS came in at 84 cents per share, which missed the 94 cents that analysts had anticipated, the Associated Press notes.
Darden said revenue edged up to $2.32 billion, but that also fell narrowly below the $2.33 billion that Wall Street had expected.
DRI stock closed at $49.52 per share on Thursday.
