What: What an open for shares of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers
So what: Of note today is the company's solid earnings beat, which was announced last night after the market closed. Revenue reached $215.8 million as restaurant sales increased 3.1%, and earnings per share of $0.48 crushed analyst's estimates of $0.36.
Now what: The bottom line is that consumers are spending more per visit, and that's great for Red Robin. I'm still not seeing a lot of value in shares after today's jump, with a forward P/E ratio of 19.3 and revenue growth of only 7%. Despite the good quarter, Red Robin is just too expensive for this Fool to jump in.
