The company's return on invested capital is more than twice that of its closest competitors

In my opinion, Starbucks (SBUX) is well-positioned to ride the Covid-19 economic recovery in its home market, the U.S., as well as in its fastest-growing overseas market, China. For one, the company's high returno on invested capital (ROIC) indicates leadership in profitability.

Additionally, as equity analyst John Zolidis pointed out, Starbucks will be "a beneficiary of the secular theme of share consolidation as small indie players in the U.S. fold and as Luckin wraps-up its operations in China."

Companies are being forced to cut back on shareholder distributions, but this could be a blessing in disguise

Since 1980, share buybacks have grown exponentially and an increasing number of American companies have shown a preference for repurchasing shares over distributing wealth through dividends. While both are valid avenues for rewarding investors, buybacks provide the added benefit of reducing the outstanding share count of a company, leading to an increase in earnings per share even if net income remains the same.

41% of the stock is sold short, but the company continues to book solid financial results

Casual dining restaurants are adjusting to a new generation of spenders and competition. This has placed immense pressure on many to adjust and pivot their marketing and even their models.

Buffalo Wild Wings is not the only appealing item on the buyout menu

Fast-casual dining has exploded in recent years, with a raft of new restaurant chains seeing explosive growth. Unsurprisingly, the rapid rise has attracted a huge amount of investor attention.

The attention has not always been positive, however, especially for some of the original darlings of the sector. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (CMG), for example, took a nasty fall in the wake of a health scare and compressing margins, sending the share price down nearly 60% from the high in late 2015.

Bargain-bin restaurant stocks that make better investments than Chipotle

Published Jan. 28 by Bob Ciura

The restaurant industry was arguably the most eager to wave goodbye to 2016. Last year was a terrible one for casual dining.

The restaurant industry closed the year on a particularly weak note: December sales fell 4.3%, the industry’s worst performance in three years.

The good news is that declining share prices across the industry have presented investors with some cheap stocks. It may be time to go bargain hunting, as many stocks sport PE ratios in the teens, with 3% to 5% dividend yields.

However, not all restaurant stocks are a bargain—investors

Tips to increase the odds of success

Investing alongside activist investors can be a tantalizing proposition. There are few outright bargains in the market now and a company that is trading cheaply with a definite catalyst in an activist investor gaining control can be very appealing. We have invested alongside activists several times over the years. We have had our successes and failures, so we want to share three rules we have developed over time that we believe increase the odds of an investment alongside an activist being a success.

Mid-caps have room to grow, but not all are growing enterprises

Mid-cap stocks are often overlooked by investors and not widely covered on Wall Street or many financial websites and blogs. I consider it a mistake because there are many mid-size companies that are attractive long-term investment opportunities.

Moreover, in the general sense, smaller companies tend to have more room to grow than their larger more well-known counterparts. Consequently, if a larger total return is part of your investment objectives, then high quality growing mid-caps might be just the ticket.

Although mid-caps generally have more room to grow, not all mid-caps are growing enterprises. In fact, mid-cap companies can be found

New management is doing a great job at turning around Darden

We first bought shares of Darden Restaurants (DRI) back in October 2014 when Starboard was victorious in its proxy fight to replace all of Darden’s board of directors. Since then the new management has done a fantastic job of improving the business. Initially we categorized our investment as riskier than average. It’s not that we didn’t believe in the new management team, it’s just that turning around a group of restaurants is inherently a tough business. However, with the turnaround well under way and Darden becoming a much more stable business, we have added the stock to our dividend portfolio.
