Trader Radar - Monday Feb. 11th

Monday, 11 Feb 2008 | 1:50 PM ET

: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. Now, whether it's endless pasta bowls or crab crackin' Mondays when you're here at one of these casual diner operations - ”You're family.'' This restaurant conglomerate was spun- off from General Mills in 1995 and it seems not all casual diners are hurting in the current economic environment. The Red Lobster and Olive Garden owner satisfied investors Monday after saying 3rd quarter earnings would be a "Bahama Breeze." Who is it?

A: Darden Restaurants is the company on Fast Money’s trader radar. This diner's delight traded twice its average daily volume today.
