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. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We downgrade Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to Hold, from Buy while maintaining our $510 price target, as the share price surpassed our price target earlier this week. Although our 4Q18 (December) pro forma EPS estimate is at a Street-high $1.92 (vs. consensus $1.35), we lower our 2019 EPS estimate to $12.93, from $13.14 (vs. consensus $11.99), as we expect CMG to boost marketing expenses to support the launch of new menu items and digital initiatives. We model continued margin expansion, renewed unit growth, and share buybacks in 2019, but in light of the 34% gain since the late December low, we now believe potential positives and risks now are in balance." (1/16/2019) 2. 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 given its strong efforts to maintain its brand name. 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 its recent earnings. Chipotle's increased focus on food safety and enhancing customer experience, along with various sales-building initiatives, is likely to drive the top line. Notably, the company’s robust marketing activities, including a combination of brand-building efforts, as well as transaction-driving promotions and advertising, are resulting in a steady inflow of new customers. However high costs and intense competition may be concerning in the future. Estimates have also gone down over the past 30 days."
