What are Wall Street analysts saying about Jack in the Box stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Jack in the Box stock:
  • 1. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We recently held a series of investor meetings in McDonnell (CEO) and Dan Jackson (CFO) of Strategic Education, visiting with both existing shareholders and new institutional investors. Our key takeaways are below." (5/16/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Jack in the Box makes regular menu innovations and plans to continue focusing on improving guest experience at both brands via operational excellence. The premium and value offerings at Jack in the Box along with focus on breakfast menu to combat competition bode well. It has a mostly positive record of earnings surprises in the recent past. Yet, comps at company-owned and franchised restaurants have been suffering due to poor restaurant level execution. Higher costs remain concern too. Notably, Jack in the Box’s shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Nonetheless, expansion of third-party delivery channels should increase transactions. Earnings estimates have also been revised upward over the past two months." (1/23/2019)
  • 3. Wedbush analysts commented, "We are maintaining our $155 PT for EXPE following a 3Q:18 with EBITDA +29% y/y, 10% above consensus, on higher advertising ROIs. However, top-line KPIs lagged the Street. To break out of range-bound levels, we believe EXPE needs to prove to investors its ability to generate sustainable, profitable growth after lapping initial market optimization efforts. Mgmt maintained high-end FY EBITDA guidance (+10%-12% y/y), implying flat 4Q growth, conservative in our view. HomeAway online bookings decelerated by 9pts on 2pt easier comp from continuing marketing efficiencies, but still a red flag, we think. Airbnb/BKNG’s larger push into traditional US vacation rental markets could also be a factor. We continue to like EXPE shares long-term on improving advertising efficacy delivering path to sustainable mid-teens EBITDA growth. Maintain Outperform." (10/26/2018)
