Today on Marketfoolery, analyst Austin Smith and Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser take a look at Wendy's (NYSE: WEN) big drop yesterday. 

After an analyst recently downgraded the stock on the expectation that the company would put out a same-store sales miss this earnings period, the stock fell big for the day. 

Ultimately our analysts believe Wendy's is stuck between a rock and a hard place. 

But it's not all doom and gloom in the restaurant space. Jack in the Box (Nasdaq: JACK) is hitting all-time highs on what seems to be enthusiasm for its Qdoba restaurant brand.
