|About: Darden Restaurants, Inc. (DRI)|By:, SA News Editor

Hedgeye's Howard Penney thinks Darden Restaurants (DRI) can be a long-term turnaround story if Starboard is successful in landing board seats.

He writes that Starboard isn't the stereotypical activist investor out looking to make a quick buck.

The upside is so high with Darden it gives investors a "generational opportunity," according to Penney.
