What are Wall Street analysts saying about Buffalo Wild Wings stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Buffalo Wild Wings stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Various innovative initiatives undertaken by Buffalo Wild Wings like menu innovation, promotional and value offerings, roll-out of loyalty program and delivery, enhancement of digital capabilities along with international expansion are positives. The move to try small, fast food style stores given consumers inclination toward to-go and in-home dining experiences also bodes well. Notably, the company's earnings and revenues have been mostly missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the trailing 11 quarters. Moreover, the company’s comps have been under pressure due to the choppy restaurant sales environment. The menu price increases made by the company might affect traffic trends in the near term, thereby further weighing on traffic. Buffalo Wild Wings’ shares underperformed the industry in the past year. Earnings estimates for 2017 have gone up in the past 60 days." (2/5/2018)

- 3. UBS 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."
