What are analysts saying about Zoe's Kitchen stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Zoe's Kitchen stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Zoe's Kitchen Inc. operates as a fast casual restaurant concept serving Mediterranean-style food. The company operates a range of restaurant formats, including in-line, end-cap, and free-standing restaurants. It also grants licenses to qualified franchisees to construct and operate Zoe's Kitchen restaurants. Zoe's Kitchen, Inc. is based in Plano, Texas. " (8/23/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating and $28 price target on Zoe’s Kitchen (ZOES) ahead of the release of 1Q17 (March) earnings on Thursday, May 25." (5/23/2017)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We remain encouraged with Zoe's long-term brand positioning after spending time with management. The company has a committed team and a robust unit-growth pipeline that should help it to grow as gracefully as possible into its growth multiple in the face of persistent industry competition. However, our stock opinion also reflects the current restaurant contraction cycle where lower multiples are a reality. As a result, and as we gauge the timing and relative impact of current strategic initiatives, we are lowering our price target on ZOES shares to $16 based on ~14x FY17E EV/EBITDA (vs. ~17x FY17E prior). The key catalysts remain operational execution. We are maintaining our Neutral rating on ZOES shares. Every 1x turn in EBITDA multiple equates to ~$1/share." (3/23/2017)
  • 4. Buckingham Research analysts commented, "We launched coverage about a year ago and have been on the wrong side watching as results deteriorated. We're certainly aware of the sliding traffic across the industry as well as rising labor costs which together have really pinched the financial model that we liked so much at the onset. Going forward, we console ourselves with 1) our view that management has not mis-executed; it really seems like an industry issue, 2) comparisons will get much easier and comps should benefit from new stores coming into the base as well as initiatives to drive sales including small-order delivery, menu innovation, price, and marketing and 3) the remaining LT opportunity to grow what we view to be a differentiated concept. We acknowledge considerable remaining risk as ZOES taps its revolver and the climate remains uncertain but we keep the BUY for those willing to hold out for some help from the environment when things change in the future."
