Wedbush maintained a Neutral rating on Bj's Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ: BJRI), and cut the price target to $34.00 (from $40.00), following the company's 3Q earnings report. EPS of $0.30 was below $0.33 consensus on -3.4% SSS growth vs. -1.9% consensus. A favorable tax rate boosted reported EPS by $0.04.

Analyst Nick Setyan commented, "Given our expectation for muted SSS growth trends and a declining marginal benefit from ongoing cost initiatives, we believe risk to stubbornly high consensus estimates remains."
