Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group Inc (NASDAQ:DFRG) posted a fiscal fourth-quarter loss of $0.04 per share on Tuesday, beating the average analyst estimate of an $0.08 loss per share. That’s way down from net income of $0.30 per share a year ago.

For the coming year, analysts are mixed, expecting a loss of $0.15 per share on average and a 40% increase in revenue to $529.8 million. Del Frisco brought in $378.2 million in 2018.

Some growth may be thanks to the seven to eight restaurants the group expects to add in 2019. Currently, the group consists of 75 restaurants across 16 states and Washington, DC.

Investors weren't biting, sending the stock down 1.2% to $7.89.
