What are analysts saying about Habit Restaurants stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Habit Restaurants stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The Habit Restaurants, Inc., operator of The Habit Burger Grill, is a burger-centric fast casual restaurant company. It is engaged in preparing char-grilled burgers, sandwiches and salads. The Company offers tri-tip steak, grilled chicken and sushi-grade albacore tuna cooked over an open flame; prepared salads and a selection of sides, shakes and malts. It has operations in California, including Bay area, Central California, Greater La, Inland Empire, Orange County, Sacramento, San Diego; Arizona; Utah and New Jersey. The Habit Restaurants, Inc. is based in Irvine, California. " (5/16/2017)
  • 2. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We circle back to HABT shares as a buy given attractive valuation levels. The concept itself remains compelling in terms of unit-level economics and continued execution. In general, The Habit has higher average unit volumes (AUVs) and is growing 3x that of its non-growth peers, while trading at a similar multiple. Execution remains the key catalyst. We reiterate our Overweight rating and $20 price target. Each 1x in EBITDA multiple equates to ~ $1/share." (3/23/2017)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "4Q EPS upside and in-line SSS (same-store-sales) prove much better than feared following HABT's 2Q and 3Q EPS shortfalls and a 4Q earnings season that has seen the vast majority of the sector post material SSS shortfalls. HABT reported Q4 EPS of $0.07, nicely above the $0.04 Street estimate, driven by in-line SSS (+1.7%%, including -0.5% traffic and +2.2% check), greater-than-expected COGS favorability (down 215bps yr/yr) and a lower-than-expected tax rate (38.0% vs. 44.0%). While HABT's relative SSS resiliency is noteworthy, we expect multiple expansion to be hard won in 2017 with our expectation for a back step in EPS vs. 2016 driven by: (1) another year of mid-single digit wage rate inflation, (2) far more modest COGS favorability relative to the 215bps seen in 2016 and (3) ongoing new unit margin inefficiencies We are lowering our 2017E EPS to $0.27 from $0.32 and introducing 2018E EPS of $0.29. Raising our valuation range to $15-16 from $14-15 as we roll forward to 2018E EBITDA." (3/3/2017)
