  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We reiterate our cautious view on Hold-rated CHUY's shares on expected opening weakness following a 'worse' 4Q16 release, that included: (1) low quality +$0.01 above-consensus 4Q16 OpEPS of $0.18 (vs. consensus' $0.17E) on -130bps/+20bps below/above-consensus 4Q16 comps/store-margins of -1.1%/16.7% (vs. cons' +0.2%E/16.5%E); and where, most importantly, mgt issued (2) -$0.06 below-consensus midpoint 2017 EPS guidance of $1.13 (vs. consensus prior $1.19E) which includes (i) -30bps below-consensus 2017 midpoint comps of +1.5% (vs. cons' prior +1.8%E; our unchanged +1.5%E) and (ii) +$0.8mm above-consensus G&A (-$0.04 EPS impact) (see below). We lower our 2017 EPS outlook to $1.13E (vs. consensus' prior $1.19E; our prior $1.15E), initiate with a 2018 EPS estimate of $1.23E (vs. consensus' prior $1.33E) and continue to believe that, given our bearish macro view, CHUY shares are fairly valued trading at a 2018 P/E of 22-times." (3/1/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "4Q adj. EPS of $0.18 beat by $0.01, helped by a low tax rate and lower than expected COGs, which offset higher than expected labor costs as -1.1% SSS was worse than flattish expectations. '17 EPS guide of $1.11-$1.15 is $0.03 below Cons. as 53rd week ($0.05) will be offset by higher G&A ($0.03-$0.04) and cannibalization from Cedar Park (Austin) unit ($0.03). Our '17/'18 EPS go to $1.12/$1.20 (from $1.17/$1.28) and PT to $28 from $32. Maintain Hold." (3/1/2017)
  • 4. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "CHUY's 4Q16 EPS of $0.18 exceeded consensus by $0.01 as stronger restaurant margins and a likely lower tax rate more than offset softer same-store sales. CHUY introduced below-consensus 2017 EPS guidance of $1.11-1.15 and indicated quarter-to-date comps are running flat to slightly negative including a headwind from a Valentine's Day shift. We are lowering our price target, to $31, and our EPS estimates owing to greater margin compression." (3/1/2017)
