We expect the company to tread on the growth trajectory after it posted better-than-expected third quarter 2018 results. Earnings and revenues not only surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, but also grew 69.4% and 6% respectively from the year ago quarter. The top line improved primarily owing to a rise in royalty income from system-wide sales growth and an increase in advertising fees and related income. The company has also raised the 2018 guidance for adjusted earnings given its robust sales building and refranchising efforts. Earnings estimate for the current year has also increased over the past 30 days. However, high costs of operations and stiff competition continues to be potential headwinds." (11/20/2018)
