The decision to sell Red Lobster, although a sad loss of a brand for the company, will allow it to focus more on its other brands and its shareholders. Currently trading at 20 times earnings, it could easily rise from there.

Olive Garden? Red Lobster?!! Really???!!!!

These places have always been terrible - both in terms of nutrition and tastiness. Now, with a surging popular interest in authentic, healthy, and actually-decent-tasting cuisine, the masses are starting to figure this out and these dinosaurs are quickly losing traction. Bye Bye and good riddance. Yes, DRI has many other brands, a couple of which actually serve decent food. And yes, there's talk of a spin-off. But with the lion's share of the company's stores outdated and struggling, I just don't see how the math adds up to improved enterprise value anytime soon.

Medium priced restaurants will provide opportunities for diners with declining take-home pay to eat out without resorting to low end fast food.

Moving up on some news that wasn't great today...possibly a sign that DRI has bottomed? Company is planning on expanding into Latin America. I'm hoping increased growth potential translates into multiple expansion.

Darden has been struggling recently in maintaining growth, however they are wisely putting assets to work in addressing the issue. Older stores are being remodelled, low price menu items are being added, and additional stores are being built. I believe the quality of the food and concepts of Olive Garden and Red Lobster are still strong and I am willing to patiently collect my impressive dividend while waiting for the profits to start growing again.

I like this pullback as a buying opportunity, I still show the value of the stock in the 57-60 range.

With the effective steady increase in the markets more people will be looking for restaurants slightly better than fast food chains and DRI will benefit in that climate.

Decent fundamentals, very good valuation and dividend. The stock is priced at a level ($49) that has provided support 4 times this year already.

I'm not a chain casual dining fan, but I'm always impressed whenever I go to an Olive Garden. The restaurants always look like they have just been remodeled. Because they don't franchise (in the U.S. and Canada at least), it is easier make upgrades and improvements to the stores and menus. Last time I was there we were given free samples of a sweet white wine as an apertif. That hasn't happened since our honeymoon in Spain!

This stock isn't going anywhere with 1000s of family friendly restaurants. As an Italian olive garden is kind of a slap in the face to traditional Italian food but at the same time I can't stop going for endless bread sticks and chicken nyoke soup
