Rough start for restaurants stocks to earnings season

|By:, SA News Editor

It's very early in the earnings season, but restaurant operators are 0 for 5 in meeting the Q3 estimates of analysts, observes Hedgeye.

Domino's Pizza which is considered one of the more resilient chains to consumer spending swings was the latest to swing and miss.

The sector has been tapped as one of the potential casualties from the government shutdown with family dining operators expected to take the hardest hit.
