What are analysts saying about Panera Bread Co stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Panera Bread Co stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Panera has recently signed a deal to be acquired by Jab Holdings. Meanwhile, its Panera 2.0 program as well as innovation in food, operations, design and marketing has started yielding results, with sales improving at the converted restaurants. Focus on channels like catering and delivery, along with its Panera at Home business, bode well and should drive incremental revenues at the company. We are also positive on the company’s removal of all artificial ingredients from its food items, which should drive its popularity among health-conscious consumers. The company is confident that its efforts will translate into strong comps and sustainable double-digit EPS growth 2017 onwards. Also, its shares outpaced the Zacks categorized Retail-Restaurants industry in the past year. Yet, higher investments and costs are expected to hurt margins while a soft consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space might limit revenue growth." (7/4/2017)
- 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "A report in today’s New York Post suggests that 3G Capital, which has backed Restaurant Brands International (QSR – $56.19 – NR), may be considering its own bid for PNRA." (4/11/2017)
- 3. Wedbush analysts commented, "The Wedbush View: Given continued SSS growth outperformance and high visibility into upward EBITDA and EPS revisions, we view the acquisition premium as justifiable." (4/5/2017)
- 4. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We continue to recommend shares of PNRA as we believe the company will continue to gain market share over the next several quarters given numerous catalysts in place (i.e. Panera 2.0, delivery, catering, clean" initiative and menu innovation). We will have additional comments following PNRA’s conference call at 8:30am EST on 2/8/2017. Bullish takeaways: (1) Sales gap to the industry continues to expand as PNRA reported a strong December comp of +4.0% (company stores) vs. the industry down -4.3% (as measured by BBI); (2) Digital utilization rate accelerated to 24% (from 22% last quarter); (3) Delivery is available in 15% of system-wide bakery-cafes (up from 13% last quarter) and is expected to be in 30% to 40% of the system by the end of ’17; (4) Panera 2.0 rollout is mostly complete for company stores; (5) U.S menu and food portfolio is now 100% clean; (6) 2017 guidance (+11% to +14% EPS growth) was slightly better than we expected."

Consensus Ratings for Panera Bread Co (NASDAQ:PNRA) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
