E Daily Stock Pick: Brinker International

A portfolio of stocks I've been building since September 3 is named Volio Folio. It will eventually hold 52 dividend dogs. Volio is the fifth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Five portfolios = V for Volio!

Today I'm reviewing the first of five consumer cyclical stocks striving to be picked to join the Volio folio. This could be the ninth pick for Volio!

That consumer cylcical sector includes twenty-eight industries ranging from Advertising Agencies to Apparel, Autos, Broadcasting, Department Stores, Gambling, Leisure, Lodging, Packaging, Personal Services, Shoes, Restaurants, Rubber, Plastics, Textiles, and all such consumer aimed enterprises.

My subject today is a small-cap restaurant company, Brinker International Inc. Their trading ticker symbol is EAT. This is my first report on EAT.

Brinker International Inc operates casual dining restaurants under the brands Chili Grill and Bar (Chili's) and Maggiano's Little Italy (Maggiano's).

Chili's falls in the Bar and Grill category of casual dining. Its menu features Fresh Mex and Fresh Tex favorites including signature items such as slow-smoked baby back ribs, craft burgers, fajitas, and famous bottomless chips and salsa paired with tableside guacamole.

Maggiano's is an Italian restaurant brand with a full lunch and dinner menu offering chef-prepared, such as appetizers, chicken, seafood, veal, and prime steaks, and desserts.

The company was founded in 1975 and is based in Dallas TX.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend-paying equities or funds like

Brinker International Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest, or not.

Those three basic keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.

EAT Price

Brinker's price per share closed at $44.55 on Friday. A year ago its price was $43.20. In the past year, its price rose $1.35 or 3.125%.
