Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating on Del Taco (TACO), though lower our price target to $15, from $16, following release of disappointing guidance after the release of final 4Q18 (December) results yesterday. TACO’s 4Q18 pro forma EPS were $0.18, below the $0.19 consensus. We reduce our 1Q19 (March) EPS estimate to $0.05, from $0.08 (vs. $0.07 consensus), and our 2019 (December) EPS estimate to $0.54, from $0.62 (vs. $0.58 consensus), as we now expect a negative comp in 1Q19, as well as higher SG&A spending and occupancy costs for the remainder of 2019. Although we lower our 2020 EPS estimate to $0.67, from $0.73 (vs. $0.65 consensus), our forecast represents a 24% jump in EPS driven by anticipated asset sales to franchisees, sustained comp growth, and cost savings."
