What are 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. " (7/17/2017)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Company 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)
