  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Dunkin’ Brands’ have underperformed the industry over the past six months. Earnings estimates have remained stable over the past month, reflecting limited upside potential for the company’s future earnings. High costs of operations have been plaguing the company . Additionally, the company’s coffee offerings face intense competition from one of the coffee giants — Starbucks — boasting a much larger scale. Also, Dunkin' Donuts generates a chunk of revenues from the breakfast segment, which is gradually becoming more competitive. However, banking on its already established namesake, the company has undertaken the implementation of a six-part plan to fuel Dunkin’ Brands’ strategic growth in the United States and better position itself as a beverage-led On-the-Go brand. Moreover, strong digital initiatives and aggressive expansion strategies by the company also add to positives." (1/15/2019)
