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•

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.

Baron Funds Comments on Del Frisco's Restaurant Group - Mar 05, 2014

Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:DFRG) is an operator of 46 fine dining steakhouse restaurants under three brands (Del Frisco's Double Eagle, Del Frisco's Grille and Sullivan's). These include the highest volume restaurant in all of New York City (the Del Frisco's Double Eagle steakhouse on Sixth Avenue in midtown Manhattan does about $37 million in annual sales!) The menu at Del Frisco's looks like a typical steakhouse menu (steaks, seafood and an extensive wine list) but the food is phenomenal. In fact, it is our favorite steakhouse in New York (and if you go we would highly recommend the bone-in rib eye). We are most excited about the company's growth concepts, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse and Del Frisco's Grille. The Del Frisco's Grille concept is the newest concept and as the name suggests, it is a more casual version of the flagship Double Eagle restaurant. The Grilles are open for lunch (unlike most of the Double Eagles) and they attract more female guests, extending Del Frisco's demographic.

We believe that the company can double the number of Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouses (to 20 from 10 today) and can grow Del Frisco's Grille from 17 units today to around 100 units over time. The combination of restaurant growth and comparable store sales of 2% to 5% should deliver top line growth in the mid-teens. This, combined with some margin leverage, should deliver 20% EPS growth. And there is upside from a potential corporate restructuring, which would enhance the company's growth profile. Over the next few years, EPS could grow to around $2, and we believe that a fast-growth concept like Del Frisco's could earn a multiple of 25x or more. This would represent at least a double from the current price of around $23.

Business Description

Industry: Restaurants » Restaurants
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:DFR.Germany,
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
