Darden Restaurants (DRI): Moving Average Crossover Alert


Are you a technical investor? If so, it may be time to consider Darden Restaurants, Inc. DRI for your portfolio. The company just saw its 50 Day Moving Average breakout above its 200 Day Simple moving average, a trend that could indicate some bullishness in the future for DRI.

This trend may have already begun, as shares of DRI have moved by higher by 19.9% in just the past month. Plus, DRI has earned itself a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), so there is plenty of reason to believe that the run for Boot Barn has plenty of life left.

More bullishness may especially be the case when investors consider what has been happening for DRI on the earnings estimate revision front lately. No estimate has gone lower in the past two months, compared to 12 higher, while the consensus estimate has also moved higher too.

So given this move in estimates, and the positive technical factors, investors may want to watch this breakout candidate closely for more gains in the near future. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
