What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bojangles stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bojangles stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Bojangles, Inc. is engaged in owning and operating restaurants. Bojangles', Inc. is based in North Carolina. " (1/5/2018)
- 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "A strong finish to 2016 will be overshadowed by a weak start to 2017 and what we view as conservative guidance for the year ahead, in our view. BOJA reported 4Q16 EPS of $0.28, well ahead of the $0.21 Street estimate on the back of better than expected system same-store sales (SSS) of +2.4% (vs. the Street's +1.1% estimate). EPS upside was driven by 120bps of yr/yr COGS favorability and store operating expense leverage of 30bps yr/yr (vs. our expectation for 60bps of pressure). Including 4Q, BOJA has delivered EPS upside in each of the last eight quarters, but that trend looks to cease in 2017 as BOJA issued guidance that fell below Street expectations across the board (including EPS of $0.87-$0.93, or down 7-13% yr/yr) despite the benefit of the extra week (about $0.02) due to a significant downdraft in SSS starting in February (a recurring industry theme). While we think this guidance may prove conservative (particularly given the recent improvement in trends over the past 2 weeks) we remain on the sidelines as BOJA battles through a weaker start to the year while facing an increasingly promotional quick service environment and mounting labor cost pressures in 2017. We are lowering our 2017E EPS to $0.89 from $1.02, our 2018E EPS to $0.98 from $1.11, and raising our valuation range to $16-$18 from $15-17 as we roll forward to 2018 estimates." (3/8/2017)

Bojangles (NASDAQ:BOJA) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
