Domino’s Pizza (NYSE: DPZ) has recently received a number of price target changes and ratings updates:

  • 8/10/2017 – Domino’s Pizza was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating. They now have a $217.00 price target on the stock. According to Zacks, “Domino's Pizza’s second-quarter 2017 adjusted earnings of $1.32 per share beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 8.2% and climbed 34.7% year over year (y/y) on strong sales and a lower share count. Revenues rose 14.8% y/y to $628.6 million and topped the consensus mark by 2.5%. In fact, the company has been posting positive comps in domestic and international markets over the last several quarters. However, strength in domestic markets was overshadowed by weak international comps growth, particularly in Europe, in this quarter. Nevertheless, initiatives on the digital front, focus on re-imaging and other sales boosting strategies are expected to help regain the momentum. In addition, the company’s shares outpaced the industry year to date. Yet, higher labor costs and expenses related to initiatives might dent margins. Also, soft consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurants space and adverse forex translation remain concerns.”

According to Zacks, “Domino's shares outpaced the Zacks classified Retail–Restaurants industry year to date. The company’s solid brand positioning should continue to boost sales in the upcoming quarters. Efforts to accelerate its presence in high-growth international markets bode well. The company’s revenues and earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in each of the trailing four quarters. The first quarter of 2017 marked the 24th and 93rd consecutive quarter of positive same-store-sales domestically and internationally, respectively. Going forward, the company’s initiatives on the digital front, focus on re-imaging and other sales boosting strategies are expected to help sustain the momentum. Yet, higher costs and negative currency translation are likely to hurt profits. A soft consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space might limit revenue growth.”
