UBS analyst Dennis Geiger said the strategic initiatives at McDonald's remains on track across re-franchising, repurchase, and G&A savings. The analyst believes the ongoing efficiency efforts could drive upside over time.

Geiger maintained his Buy rating and lowered his price target to $130 from $137 on McDonald's shares.

Chipotle shares should be bought closer to $375, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe, who has a "marginal" Overweight rating on the name, believes risk tolerant investors should buy shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill closer to $375. The analyst prefers shares of Starbucks (SBUX), McDonald's (MCD) and Yum! Brands (YUM) in large cap restaurants. In a research note following Chipotle's Q3 results, Ivankoe says the company is "finally doing the things that other restaurant companies would have long done to maximize brand value." He thinks capacity enhancements could help Chipotle's comps but thinks lower stock prices are a better entry point. The stock in pre-market trading is down 4% to $388.31.

Wendy's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak upgraded Wendy's to Buy with a $15 price target saying the company has revitalized its brand over the last three years by selling more than 800 company-owned restaurants. The sale of these restaurants has boasted free cash flow as franchisees are responsible for most capital expenditures and sale proceeds are providing capital for share buybacks and dividend increases, the analyst wrote. Staszak said by year end, franchisees will own 95% of all Wendy's restaurants and only 5% will be company-owned. The company and franchisees have remodeled 30% of restaurants, which are generating significantly greater revenue than older locations, Staszak said.
