What Happened:

Shares of upscale bowling alley chain Bowlero (NYSE:BOWL) jumped 12.9% in the morning session after the company reported fourth-quarter results that beat analysts' revenue estimates, driven by better-than-expected bowling center revenue. Its full-year revenue guidance also came in higher than Wall Street's projections. 

On the other hand, its EPS and operating margin missed Wall Street's estimates. During the quarter, the company initiated a quarterly dividend of $0.055 per share, payable on March 8, 2024, to stockholders of record on February 23, 2024. The integration of last year's Lucky Strike acquisition is also going well, and management expects to open new locations during the year. Overall, this was a mixed quarter for Bowlero.
