  • 3. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "We are raising our EPS estimates and maintaining our price target following slightly improved trends relative to the industry in recent months as well as the positive impact from store closures. While earnings visibility remains low as the company rationalizes its restaurant base, we continue to view efforts to accommodate take-out and delivery as significant sources of potential long-term upside." (3/6/2017)
  • 4. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "4Q adj. EPS was -$0.04, in line with our expectations and slightly better than Cons. at -$0.08. System SSS of -1.3% was in line, while RLMs of 11.9% was at the high end of last month's pre-report. Of the 55 underperforming stores expected to be closed, 39 have been completed and SSS 1QTD is trending at -1.9% at co-owned stores and +1.3% at franchised stores.
