This value investor's top pick for the rest of 2022 keeps losing ground, but that isn't stopping him from doubling down on this speculative play.

Companies in the sector are seeing their share prices sag as rising labor and input costs take a toll on restaurant margins.

The growth crowd has moved on, leaving a stock trading at attractive levels.

After a surprisingly solid year for the sector in 2021, a lot of restaurant names are seeing their shares sag amid rising food costs and a shortage of help.

Many restaurant stocks performed well in 2021 despite rising costs and labor issues, but this year could be more challenging.

BurgerFi International, PetMed Express and Big 5 Sporting Goods aren't without warts but could be bargains.

The grill maker's stock is near its IPO price, and the high level of short interest in Weber is an attention-getter.

BurgerFi International has bought a pizza-and-wings business and Getty Realty is adding locations while raising its dividend.

McDonald's decision to raise its dividend is an indicator of the sector's comeback from the pandemic, but higher labor and food costs are a concern.
