What are Wall Street 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, "Shares of Chipotle have outperformed the industry over the past year. We expect the company to remain on this growth trajectory after fourth-quarter 2018 earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Adjusted earnings grew 28.4% from the year-ago quarter, driven by higher revenues and lower food costs. Despite having a good share of negative publicity from a food-borne illness, Chipotle’s viable business strategy and the appointment of Brian Niccol significantly helped in 2018. For 2019, management expects comps to grow in the mid-single-digit range and expects to open 140-155 restaurants. Chipotle's increased focus on food safety and enhancing customer experience, along with various sales-building initiatives, is likely to drive the top line while high costs and intense competition may be concerning in the future." (2/11/2019) 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are adjusting our FY19/20 estimates to $12.00/14.50 from $11.95/14.31 on comps of 5.2/5.0% and raise our price target to $420 from $400. Maintain Underperform as we continue to believe the bull case is in the stock." (2/7/2019) 3.
