losers Wednesday, falling 15% after the company posted in-line second-quarter earnings but warned that full-year results would fall short of Wall Street forecasts.

The restaurant chain earned $9.3 million, or 34 cents a share, on sales of $198.1 million. Analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call were expecting earnings of 34 cents a share on sales of $197.8 million. A year ago the company earned $8.4 million, or 32 cents a share, on sales of $169.6 million.
