Those same analysts estimate it will earn $1.31 per share in its current fiscal year and that that will grow by 5% to $1.37 the following year.

S&P, which has it rated "hold," says "the company will experience same-store sales growth below its closest peers in fiscal 2013, despite what we consider its strong regional market share positions. We remain cautious on the shares, with sales pressures intensifying."
