NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Five analysts lowered share-price targets for Amazon Friday, though most maintained a long-term bullish outlook after the release of the company's second-quarter earnings report, which was mostly in-line with Street expectations.
Darden Restaurants' (DRI) second-largest shareholder, Starboard Value, detailed its transformation plan for the restaurant chain operator that could boost the share price to $67 to $86, or 39% to 78% above Thursday's closing price of $48.29. The plan includes company-wide operational improvement, a turnaround plan for Darden's Olive Garden business, separating the company's restaurant brands and real estate assets and a new franchising program.
