The shares of Restaurant Brands International (NYSE:QSR) are down 4.2% to trade at $59.40 at last check, after the company reported third-quarter earnings of 76 cents per share, which is two cents higher than analyst estimates, and revenue just barely below estimates. The Burger King parent noted labor challenges and Covid-19 pressures, and also had stiff competition as Wendy's (WEN) and McDonald's (MCD) unveiled new menu items. 

Today's negative price action has Restaurant Brands stock dipping below its year-to-date breakeven. QSR has been chopping lower on the charts since its May 3 two-year high of $71.12. Overhead pressure at the 80-day moving average kept a cap on the stock's attempt at a September rally, and the equity is currently on track for its third-straight monthly loss.

Of the 19 analysts in coverage, 11 carry a "buy" or better rating on QSR, with eight a tepid "hold." Meanwhile, the 12-month consensus price target of $72.47 is a 22.2% premium to current levels. 

The stock's typically quiet options pits are seeing much more action than usual straight off the bat this morning, with options volume running at five times what's typically seen. The November 60 put is the most popular, followed by the November 55 put.
