In a report published Monday, Jefferies analyst Andy Barish reiterated a Buy rating on BJ's Restaurants (NASDAQ: BJRI), and raised the price target from $29.00 to $33.00.

In the report, Barish noted, “We knew 1Q13 compares would be difficult but the sharp traffic drop-off in Feb as guests' wallets were squeezed was less expected. Many tempered ‘13 guidance, but the slowdown appears to have been largely ignored by the market; valuations have expanded as investors look past a choppy '13 to more normalized EPS growth in '14. We introduce '14 ests but remain selective, and prefer those names with tangible SSS drivers and cost offsets.”

BJ's Restaurants closed on Friday at $32.73.
