Darden Restaurants is selling Red Lobster -- and investors aren't buying it.

Today on Investor Beat, Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Ron Gross explore Darden's recent decision to sell Red Lobster to a private equity firm for $2.1 billion dollars. Chris offers that Darden wanted to spin-off Red Lobster back in December to push up the stock price, yet Darden's stock fell today. Ron explains that investors had hoped for more from a deal, and see the dip in stock price as confirmation of unrealized hopes.

Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.
