Though the Portugal-U.S. World Cup match ended in a tie on Sunday, there was at least one winner—Buffalo Wild Wings.
Its stock surged 5 percent following a new report detailing strong attendance at the chain during World Cup matches so far. (What's the stock doing now? Click here)
Strong World Cup viewership bodes well for the chain's same-store sales performance this quarter and next, according to a new Wunderlich Securities report.
The firm's channel checks revealed "standing-room-only attendance" for last night's game along with "long wait times (over an hour) for any tables for viewership in either the bar, dining room, or patio" at the restaurants' locations.
Interest was high in the game on ESPN too, where the game delivered a 9.1 overnight rating—the largest ever for a World Cup game on the network, according to a Tweet from ESPNResearch.
In the report, Wunderlich Securities reiterated its "buy" rating on the chicken wing seller's shares along with a $180 price target. The company's stock last traded around $163.
Declining spot wing prices, the firm noted, are also likely to mean lower costs for the company.
