Guru Investment Theses on BJ's Restaurants Inc

Baron Funds Comments on BJ's Restaurants Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

BJ's Restaurants Inc. (BJRI), the operator of casual dining restaurants, declined 22.7% in the quarter as the company reported weak sales. Trends for most all mid-tier restaurant chains were very soft this summer, as consumers seemed to be spending on cars and home furnishings, not eating out. BJ's was unable to buck the trend it has in the past. We remain optimistic that the company can grow its chain four-fold in units, and increase margins so it should be able to compound earnings at a fast pace going forward. However, in this weak comp environment, earnings growth is constrained and the stock's multiple has contracted.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

It operates in one geographic area; the United States of America. The Company has registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office its standard and seasonal beer logos and names, as well as many of its signature menu item names including Great White and Sweet Pig for its proprietary pizzas, Together At Last! for its proprietary appetizer, Pizookie for its proprietary dessert and Wow, I Love This Place for its proprietary motto. It competes with casual dining chain restaurants and other food and beverage service operations. It also competes with national and regional restaurant chains and locally-owned restaurants. The Company is subject to various federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations that affect its business. Its restaurants and breweries are subject to tied house laws and the three tier system of liquor distribution, both of which were introduced at the federal level after the repeal of Prohibition.
