Sonic Corporation : StockCall Scrutinizes Darden Restaurants, Wendy's, Cheesecake Factory, and Sonic

03/27/2013 | 07:05am US/Eastern

LONDON, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

A data released on Tuesday showed that confidence among U.S. consumers fell unexpectedly in March. According to a report from the Conference Board, consumer confidence fell 8.3 points to 59.7 in March. The data suggests that consumer confidence has been weighed down by the automatic spending cuts, which took effect earlier this month. However, the labor and housing markets are continuing to recover, and therefore consumer confidence is likely to rebound in coming months, which augurs well for restaurant companies such as Darden Restaurants Inc. (NYSE: DRI), Brinker International Inc. (NYSE: EAT), The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated (NASDAQ: CAKE), and Sonic Corporation (NASDAQ: SONC). On Tuesday, restaurant stocks ended mostly higher, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall reviewed the Restaurants industry and chose DRI, EAT, CAKE, and SONC for its technical coverage.
