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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Jack in the Box have underperformed the industry in a year’s time. Additionally, the company reported mixed fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 results, wherein earnings missed the consensus estimate but revenues surpassed the same. Over the past 30 days, earnings estimates for the current and next year have witnessed downward revisions, reflecting analysts’ concern on the earnings prospects. Higher costs woes linger too. Soft comps performance in the first seven quarter of first-quarter fiscal 2019 is also worrisome. However, Jack in the Box’s regular menu innovations and plans to continue focusing on improving guest experience at both brands via operational excellence are encouraging. Its premium and value offerings along with focus on breakfast menu to combat competition also bode well. Moreover, the company has been regularly rewarding its shareholders through share repurchases and dividends." (11/26/2018)
  • 2. 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)
