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 underperformed the industry in the past three months. The company missed second-quarter 2018 earnings estimates, putting further doubt on its growth potential. Adjusted earnings of 65 cents per share declined 16.7% on a year-over-year basis. Particularly, higher-than-expected medical insurance cost along with some legal expenses dented the company’s earnings in the second quarter. As it is, the company’s profits are under pressure from higher labor and pre-openings costs along with expenses related to sales initiatives. Earnings estimates for 2018 have also declined marginally over the past 30 days. Nevertheless, 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." (8/3/2018)
  • 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." (6/22/2018)
