What are Wall Street analysts saying about Denny's stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Denny's stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Denny's Corp., formerly Advantica Restaurant Group, Inc., is one of the largest restaurant companies, operating moderately-priced restaurants: Denny's, Hardee's, Quincy's, El Pollo Loco, Coco's and Carrows. The company believes its restaurants benefit from the diversity of the restaurant concepts, the generally strong market positions and consumer recognition enjoyed by these chains, the benefits of a centralized support system for purchasing, menu development, human resources, management information systems, site selection, restaurant design and construction. " (5/1/2018)
- 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "The Wedbush View: We believe current 2017 consensus expectations are realistic, driven by expense control, opportunistic purchases of franchised units, and share repurchases. Recent meetings with CFO Mark Wolfinger, Sr. Director of Investor Relations & Financial Analysis Curt Nichols, and VP of Financial Planning and Analysis Robert Verostek increase our confidence in 0-2% annual SSS growth guidance. We model 0.6% for 2017. Incremental pricing taken in April should sustain menu pricing of around ~2% through the remainder of 2017." (6/6/2017)
