What are analysts saying about Chuy's Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chuy's Holdings stock:

  • 1. Wedbush analysts commented, "The Wedbush View: We see risk to current 2017 guidance and consensus estimates as incremental 2H:17 margin headwinds are less likely to be offset by a continuation in lackluster SSS growth trends. Therefore, we downgrade to NEUTRAL from OUTPEFORM. Checks indicate in line trends in Q2 at best. Our recent checks point to negative SSS growth in Q2, largely in-line with -0.9% consensus. We are lowering our Q2 SSS growth estimate to -1% from -0.5%." (6/21/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Chuy's Holdings, Inc. owns and operates full-service restaurants serving a distinct menu of authentic Mexican food. The Company offers menu which includes appetizers, soups and salads, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas and combination platters. It operates chains throughout Texas, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Chuy's Holdings, Inc. is headquartered in Austin, Texas. " (5/8/2017)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
  • 5. 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)
