What are analysts saying about Buffalo Wild Wings stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Buffalo Wild Wings stock:
- 1. UBS Group AG analysts commented, "We believe modest multiple expansion may occur as BWLD works to address its recent issues. Our multiple moves up one turn to ~10x (on our 2018 EV/EBITDA, implies a ~29x 2018 P/E)," the firm said."This multiple takes into consideration BWLD's recent capital and strategic moves, but still discounts fundamentals given recent SSS struggles and the need for a continued recovery." (5/15/2017)
- 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Hold rating on Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), though raise our price target to $175 (from $170) after our meeting with CFO Alexander Ware on Friday, May 5. We raise our 2017-2018 sales estimates, and our 2018 EPS estimate, as we now model an accelerated rollout of delivery in the next few quarters. Management expressed confidence that it would find buyers for the 80 company-owned restaurants it sought to sell to franchisees." (5/9/2017)
- 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Buffalo Wild Wings has been posting positive comps over the past few years given its strong market standing. However, the company’s comps declined in 2016 due to the choppy restaurant sales environment. Even so, going forward, various initiatives like menu innovation, promotional offerings, loyalty program and digital enhancement should aid in reviving comps growth. Increased focus on take-out and delivery are expected to further drive sales. Also, the company’s alliance with beverage chains and major sporting events has been increasing its brand awareness. Yet, constant earnings and revenue miss in the past few quarters raises concerns. In fact, Buffalo Wild Wings’ shares have underperformed the Zacks categorized Retail-Restaurants industry over the past 3 months. Higher traditional chicken wing prices and other costs are anticipated to keep profits under pressure too. Estimates have gone also down ahead of its Q1 earnings release." (4/24/2017)
- 4. Wedbush analysts commented, "We believe risk exists to BWLD's 2017 guidance. Nevertheless, we continue to view potential capital structure catalysts as a near- and medium-term valuation floor." (2/8/2017)
- 5. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We recently hosted investor meetings with Buffalo Wild Wings management, including newly appointed CFO Alex Ware and Heather Pribyl (Investor Relations). We are incrementally more positive on BWLD following our meetings with management, given significant cost-cutting opportunities and potentially improving returns on capital. While we remain HOLD given what we believe to be a challenging Q4 (higher y/y wing costs & likely negative comps), we see the longer-term horizon for BWLD as promising." (12/5/2016)
