Buffalo_Wild_Wings_2011-04-05_1153-300x223The first game of the 2013 NFL season is still two months away, but football fan favorites “beer and wings” are running wild.

Shares of restaurant operator Buffalo Wild Wings Inc. (BWLD) are up 36% this year as this sector has consumers voting with their wallets and investors counting profits.  More good news for the wing maker as the stock was upgraded to “buy” from “hold” at Miller Tabak, citing lower operating costs as well as lower prices for chicken wings. This came after an upgrade from Morgan Stanley last week.

With a forward P/E of 22, expected lower operating costs and the potential for a big season when college football and the NFL kick-off, BWLD may have plenty of room to run.
