Best Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now: Bloomin' Brands, Inc.(BLMN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By CNBC]

    Tony Tribble, Invision/AP
    Forget about Bloomin’ Onions or boneless wings, for many consumers, the choice of where to dine often comes down to a different factor: which restaurant has the best booze.
    “Alcoholic beverages can be a key driver of traffic, differentiation, and loyalty,” said David Decker, president of Consumer Edge Insight. According to the firm, two factors that keep customers coming back are “selection” and “pricing.”
    Consumer Edge Insight recently surveyed restaurant customers to find out which casual-dining spots generated the most loyalty with their alcoholic beverages.
    Taking the top spot for “selection” was Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), with 29 percent of those surveyed saying they were “most likely to visit it most often due to its good selection of alcoholic beverages.”
    Applebee’s (DIN) took the second spot, with 24 percent, and Outback Steakhouse (BLMN) and T.G.I. Friday’s tied for third place with 22 percent each.
    Prices also keep customers coming back to Buffalo Wild Wings.

    When asked which casual-dining brand they were “most likely to visit most often due to its good prices of alcoholic beverages,” Buffalo Wild Wings came out on top with 30 percent. Chili’s (EAT) was No. 2 at 23 percent, and Ruby Tuesday (RT) was third with 22 percent.
    Buffalo Wild Wings has always made alcohol a part of its experience, even making it part of its tagline: “Wings.Beer.Sports.”
    The chain is the No. 1 account for more than 50 different beer brands and recently launched Game Changer, a new beer in a partnership with Redhook Brewery. Priced between cheaper domestic lagers and pricier craft beers, Game Changer became the fourth-most-popular draft beer at company-owned locations within two weeks of its release.
    “Among casual-dining restaurants, Buffalo Wild Wings is seeing the greatest positive effect in terms of building customer loyalty with its alcohol offerings,” Decker said. “There are many steps other restaurants can take to improve their alcoho

Shares of Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) climbed higher throughout the second quarter, thanks to some data that suggested that books were making a recovery. Shares then retreated after the company fired its new CEO less than one year into the job. A favorable article from Barron’s suggesting that fears about obsolescence due to Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) were overdone led to renewed optimism, before BKS reported weak Q2 results that sent shares back down. It is one of the cheapest stocks in the retail sector, trading at a forward P/E of 12 and a P/S of 0.2. But the fears about BKS’s long-term viability are warranted, and investors should stay on the sidelines.

Global economic growth is slowing. The world economy continues to expand, but at a smaller growth rate than in recent years. The outlook isn’t much better. In fact, the IMF keeps revising its forecast downwards, as do the forecasters tracked by FocusEconomics. It turns out that the expected growth isn’t much off than the historical average. Advanced economies are will not accelerate from current tepid growth, but emerging economies will gradually improve.

Fact: The global economic outlook is not worse than normal

The IMF forecast for world GDP in 2017 is 3.4 percent growth (inflation-adjusted). The long-run average, calculated since 1970, is 3.6 percent. That’s not much different. It seems weak because previous forecasts had been up around 4.0 percent. We’ve had years with more than five percent growth. But the current forecasts are not that bad. Even if we take a narrower slice of history, say 1990 through 2015, we get just 3.6 percent growth. So maybe it’s not so bad.

    Today, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggested shorting mid cap emerging markets retail stock Cencosud SA (NYSE: CNCO):

    There are a couple of things going on here to lead us to a bearish conclusion, but the biggest of these is today’s cross under the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.46. For a brief while it looked like this long-term moving average line was going to play a support role – as it often does – but today’s second selling effort broke its back. Now that the floor’s out of the way, the selling just got a lot easier.

    “Right now, we are the only Latin American company in the retail segment, and the only ones with a real distribution chain assembled, selling in stores like Staples and others,” Caporale explained. “Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS)’s MakerBot had a few experiences in retail, but did not do very well: Cencosud SA (NYSE: CNCO)’s Jumbo supermarkets bought three printers [for its Argentina branch] and did not manage to sell any. The thing is, their machine costs about 90,000 Argentine pesos [about $6,000], and our machine goes for 32,000 pesos [about $2100].”
