Consensus Metrix was at $0.54. Fourth-quarter same-store sales'which had been previously divulged'declined by 4.8%. For full-year 2017, the company continues to target high-single-digit same-store sales, 195-210 new units, and a tax rate of 39.0-39.5%. We retain our 2017 and 2018 EPS projections of $8.40 and $12.40, respectively, and maintain our Neutral rating on CMG." (2/3/2017)
  • RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "Following 4Q16 results, our EPS estimates are largely unchanged reflecting a slightly faster sales recovery offset by higher assumed G&A from executive bonuses. Upside to our base case target of $465 will largely depend on accelerating sales momentum from operations improvements, digital ordering and new marketing'all of which can increase in impact in the coming months." (1/31/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Chipotle is one of the most recognized fast casual Mexican restaurant chains in the U.S. However, the company’s earnings and revenues has come under tremendous pressure in the recent past owing to the negative publicity related to the E. coli and the norovirus outbreaks. As a result, Chipotle shares have underperformed the Zacks categorized Retail–Restaurants industry over the last year. Nonetheless, Chipotle’s recovery plan to restore its economic model and customers trust to build sales, along with efforts to enhance guest experience augur well. Moreover, various sales-building initiatives undertaken by the company by the company like menu innovation, increased brand marketing along with increased investments in technology-driven initiatives should aid in bringing back customers. Yet, higher costs are expected to hurt margins while a soft consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space might limit revenue growth." (1/19/2017)
