Brinker (EAT) is expected to report Q4 earnings before the open on Thursday, August 11 with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET.
Analysts are looking for a profit of 47c on revenue of $710.57M. The consensus range is 45c-48c for EPS, and revenue of $685M-$750.98M, according to First Call.
Brinker, which has surprised to the upside on earnings for the last three quarters in a row, was recently upgraded to Buy at Miller Tabak. Whether or not it can meet -- or beat -- earnings expectations will largely be determined by how well the company managed the commodities headwinds it expected in Q4, as discussed on its last earnings conference call.
