2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Del Frisco's Restaurant Group Inc develops, owns and operates contemporary restaurants.

The Company develops, owns and operates three contemporary, high-end, complementary restaurants: Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, or Del Frisco's, Sullivan's Steakhouse, or Sullivan's, and Del Frisco's Grille, or the Grille. It currently operates 40 restaurants in 20 states. Each of its three restaurant concepts offers steaks as well as other menu selections, such as chops and fresh seafood. Del Frisco's, Sullivan's and the Grille are positioned within the fine dining segment and are designed to appeal to both business and local dining customers. The Company's Del Frisco's restaurants are sited in urban locations to target customers seeking a 'destination dining' experience while its Sullivan's and Grille restaurants appeals to a broader demographic, allowing them to be located either in urban areas or in close proximity to affluent residential neighbourhoods. The Company is a premier steakhouse concept in the United States. The Del Frisco's brand is defined by its menu, which includes USDA Prime grade, wet-aged steaks hand-cut at the time of order and of other offerings, including prime lamb, fresh seafood, and signature side dishes and desserts. It is also distinguished by its 'swarming service,' whereby customers are served simultaneously by multiple servers. Each restaurant has a sommelier to guide diners through an extensive, award-winning wine list and its bartenders specialize in hand-shaken martinis and crafted cocktails. The Company's restaurants target customers seeking a full-service, fine dining steakhouse experience. The Company currently operates 10 Del Frisco's steakhouses in eight states. These restaurants range in size from 11,000 to 24,000 square feet with seating capacity for at least 300 people. The Sullivan's brand is defined by a fine dining experience at a more accessible price point, along with a vibrant atmosphere created by an open kitchen, live music and a bar area designed to be a center for social gathering and entertainment. Each Sullivan's features fine hand-selected aged steaks, fresh seafood and a broad list of custom cocktails, along with an extensive selection of award-winning wines. The Company currently operates 19 Sullivan's steakhouses in 15 states. These restaurants are in size from 7,000 to 11,000 feet with seating capacity for at least 250 people. The Company developed the Grille, its newest concept, to take advantage of the positioning of the Del Frisco's brand and to provide greater potential for expansion due to its smaller size, lower build out cost and more diverse menu. The Grille's menu is designed to appeal more broadly to both business and casual diners and features a variety of Del Frisco's prime aged steaks, top selling signature menu items and a broad selection of the same quality wines. The Grille also offers an assortment of relatively less expensive entrees, such as flatbread pizzas, sandwiches and salads, all prepared with the same signature flavours, ingredients and

Guru Investment Theses on Del Frisco's Restaurant Group Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on Del Frisco's Restaurant Group Inc - Dec 17, 2014

Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group (DFRG) is a fine dining company that operates 45 steakhouses across three brands. We initiated our position when earnings were pressured by underperformance in the Sullivan’s Steakhouse brand and the investment in a new growth brand, Del Frisco’s Grille. We like the fact that the company overall has outperformed the overall restaurant sector the past few years. The company underperformed in the quarter due to delays in new store openings and some location-specific issues that hurt revenue growth. We continue to believe that Del Frisco’s offers an appealing product with high unit growth potential and have added to our position on the recent price weakness.
