" (8/1/2017)
  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "We worry comps will be challenged in SONC's 2Q and 3Q, modestly trailing Street estimates. Shares' downside could be limited as SONC completed the previous initiative to refranchise to ~95% one quarter ahead of schedule, which could lead to a favorable company margin and G&A guidance update. Downside is further limited by targets to repurchase 17%+ of the company's market cap in 2017." (3/24/2017)
