What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cheesecake Factory stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cheesecake Factory stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Cheesecake Factory have outperformed the industry over the past year. The company’s various initiatives to boost sales like menu innovation roll out of an improved server training program, launch of mobile payment app and focus on delivery bode well. The company is also evaluating different approaches to limit its costs. It installed a cost management system with substantial capabilities across production, planning and inventory management a few years ago to help analyze usage and waste. While such efforts encourage us, we are apprehensive of the stock’s future potential after the company missed earnings for two straight quarters. Particularly, higher-than-expected medical insurance costs along with some legal expenses are affecting the company’s profitability." (10/24/2018) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We downgrade shares of The Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) to the share price reached our $60 price target yesterday. CAKE’s comp growth is accelerating, and we see renewed margin expansion, buybacks, and potentially an acquisition contributing to at least low-teen EPS growth, but we now believe these positives have been priced into shares. Our EPS estimates are unchanged at $0.83 for 2Q18 (vs. $0.81 consensus), $2.77 for 2018 (vs. $2.69 consensus), and $3.16 for 2019 (vs. $2.91 consensus). CAKE shares have risen 25% year-to-date vs. the industry average of a 1% drop year-to-date, and now trade at 19x forward P/E, inline with the five-year average."
