What are analysts saying about Chipotle Mexican Grill stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chipotle Mexican Grill stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Chipotle shares have underperformed the industry in the last three months. We note that throughout 2016 Chipotle’s results continued to be affected by the negative publicity related to the food-borne illnesses. Though the company is on the road to recovery, still, it will take some time to completely restore its economic model and customers’ trust and consequently build sales. A string of new food safety concerns may further thwart performance. Nevertheless, marketing initiatives combined with the ongoing improvements in the customer experience, improved digital ordering channels along with increased focus on menu innovation should aid in bringing back customers. Furthermore, adoption of new food safety protocols and changes in the board is expected to reap results in the long term. However, higher costs are expected to hurt margins, while a soft consumer spending environment in the U.S. restaurant space might limit revenue growth." (9/26/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $435 price target on Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) as 3Q17 (September) nears an end." (9/21/2017)
  • 3. Wedbush analysts commented, "We believe current valuation appropriately reflects an improving top-line trajectory, offset by limited visibility into Chipotle's nearterm margin trajectory. Checks indicate continued SSS growth momentum in Q1. Our recent checks of 5% of comp base units indicate Q1 SSS growth at least in line with 14.9% cons. Promotions (both online and mailers), fundraisers, busier lunch, improved weather, and compares versus LY's outbreak were all cited as drivers. In cases where sales were down, the primary reason now cited has returned to the pre-crisis answer of cannibalization." (3/27/2017)
  • 4. Instinet analysts commented, "After yesterday's market close, Chipotle Mexican Grill reported Q4 EPS of $0.55, within the pre-announced range of $0.50-0.58, and matching our $0.55 estimate. 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)
