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 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cheesecake Factory’s shares have outperformed the industry over the past three months. Earnings estimates for 2018 has also gone up over the past 60 days, reflecting analysts’ optimism. The company’s differentiated menu, operational distinction and unique ambiance appeal to customers. Further, the company’s aggressive expansion initiatives also bode well and should drive growth. However, a lowered fiscal 2017 outlook due to prevailing challenging restaurant environment calls for caution. Moving ahead, higher labor and pre-openings costs coupled with expenses related to sales initiatives are likely to continue to hurt margins. In addition, underperformance by Grand Lux Cafe raises caution." (2/7/2018)
