StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on McDonald's Corp., Buffalo Wild Wings Inc., Texas Roadhouse Inc., and Jamba Inc.
New York City, New York -- (May 02, 2013)
Earlier this week, a report showed that confidence among U.S. consumers rose sharply in April. However, Wednesday’s disappointing ADP jobs report may hurt consumer confidence. All eyes are now set on Friday’s crucial jobs report for the month of April. If the April non-farm payrolls data falls short of expectations, then U.S. consumers are likely to scale back their spending, especially on discretionary items. This would have a negative impact on restaurant operators such as McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE: MCD), Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ: BWLD), Texas Roadhouse Inc. (NASDAQ: TXRH), and Jamba Inc. (NASDAQ: JMBA). Shares of restaurant companies ended mostly lower in Wednesday’s trading as the broad market struggled following some disappointing economic data.
