What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cheesecake Factory stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cheesecake Factory stock: 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $55 price target on The Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) ahead of the release of 4Q18 (December) results on Wednesday, February 20. We expect CAKE to post 4Q18 (December) EPS of $0.63 vs. $0.62 consensus, on a blended comp of +1.5% vs. +0.8% consensus. We model a 14% jump in EPS to $2.79, vs. $2.67 consensus as we expect another year of 1.5%-2.0% comp growth vs. +1.3% consensus and easier y/y cost comparisons. We believe the acquisition of the remainder of its minority-owned North Italia concept, which we expect will occur in 2H19, will provide a potent catalyst." (2/15/2019) 2. 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."
