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, "Jack in the Box’s first-quarter fiscal 2018 adjusted earnings of $1.23 per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 16% and increased nearly 15% year over year on margin improvement, driven by refranchising. Revenues of $294.5 million exceeded the consensus mark by 3% but fell 16.6% on a year-over-year basis owing to lower comps. First-quarter comps in the company-owned restaurants and franchisees compared unfavorably with the prior-year quarter’s comps, mainly due to a choppy sales environment in the U.S. restaurant space. The company signed an agreement to sell Qdoba brand as it had suffered poor restaurant level execution. Shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Both current quarter and current year stimates have gone down for the past 30 days . Even so, premium and value offerings along with increased focus on menu innovation, franchising and delivery should somewhat aid in spurring growth." (3/13/2018)
