What are Wall Street analysts saying about Dunkin Brands Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dunkin Brands Group stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dunkin’ Brands’ shares have outperformed the industry in the past six months. This can primarily be attributed to better-than-expected earnings in the trailing six out of seven quarters.  Moreover, the company’s sales and earnings witnessed a sharp increase in the first-quarter 2018. Following earnings beat in the reported quarter, the company raised 2018 guidance. Estimates have also witnessed upward revisions over the past 60 days. Dunkin' Brands’ franchised business model, various sales initiatives like product launches, ongoing loyalty program along with enhanced digital offerings bode well. However, the U.S. ice cream industry is also shrinking gradually due to a shift to healthier substitutes, making Baskin Robbins suffer here too. Intense competition from larger fast casual companies and a choppy sales environment in the United States might pressurize the top line." (6/27/2018)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN) announced 4Q17 (December) pro forma EPS of $0.64, which were in line with our $0.64 estimate and above the $0.63 Street mean." (2/6/2018)
