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. 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)
  • 2. 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)
