What are analysts saying about Restaurant Brands International stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Restaurant Brands International stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Restaurant Brands’ shares have widely outpaced its industry over the past year. Going forward, various sales-boosting initiatives like improving services, reimaging restaurants, menu innovation along with continued expansion should drive the top line. In fact, the company believes that there is opportunity to grow all three of its brands across the world. Also, the company aims to continue focusing on guest satisfaction and franchisee profitability, which it believes will drive long-term growth of brands. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters and estimates too have been stable ahead of its third quarter earnings release. However, rising costs along with negative currency translation might dent the company’s profitability, while a soft consumer spending environment could keep comps under pressure." (10/16/2017)
  • 2. Royal Bank Of Canada analysts commented, "Raising price target to reflect the Popeyes acquisition: We are raising our price target from $59 to $63 to reflect the EPS accretion and future growth potential of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (NASDAQ: PLKI) under the Restaurant Brands International (RBI) umbrella. Based on our pro-forma analysis (see Exhibit 2), we believe the deal could add ~6pp (~$0.14) to 2018 EPS under the following assumptions: 1) G&A is reduced to 35% of EBIT, or $18k/ store versus ~108% and ~33k/ store today; 2) the company pays a 4% borrowing rate on new debt; and 3) an effective tax rate of 22.2%, which incorporates the Canadian statutory rate of 25% for Popeye's profits (vs. 38% today). Our new price target of $63 equates to 26.5x our 2018e EPS of $2.37 (+34% YOY). We will fine-tune our estimates to include Popeyes upon closure of the deal." (2/22/2017)
