  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $67 price target on Dave & Buster’s (PLAY) ahead of the post-close release of F1Q19 (April) results on Tuesday, June 11. Our F1Q19 EPS estimate of $1.15 is unchanged (vs. $1.12 Street), as is our +2.0% blended comp estimate (vs. +1.8% Street). We raise our F2Q19 (July) EPS estimate to $0.90, from $0.89 (vs. $0.89 Street), as we raise our blended comp estimate to +2.3%, from +1.8% (vs. +1.5% Street), from the launch of the Men in Black (MIB): International VR attraction. We still project low-teen percent EPS growth in FY19 of $3.26 (vs. $3.25 prior, $3.08 Street, and $2.84-$3.16 implied guidance), and an acceleration to 20% EPS growth in vs. $3.48 Street)." (6/4/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Although Dave & Buster's shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months, we remain apprehensive of high costs, a tricky consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space along with the company’s limited international presence. Also, a non-franchised model makes the company susceptible to increased expenses. Since all the restaurants are owned and operated by Dave & Buster’s, instead of signing franchise agreements and putting the burden of costs into the franchise, the company is solely responsible for the expenses of operating the business. However, the company’s unique business model, with increased dependence on gaming, sets it apart and we expect the company’s entertainment business to carry the growth story forward. Consistent efforts to build sales and improve margins through various initiatives have also been key growth drivers." (2/11/2019)
