Dunkin' Brands spikes 4% amid takeover speculation

The move higher in shares of Dunkin' Brands is being attributed by traders to speculation of a takeover. Talk on social media has JAB Holdings interested in acquiring the coffee chain. JAB describes itself as a "privately held group focused on long term investments in companies with premium brands, attractive growth and strong margin dynamics." Shares of Dunkin' are up $2.13 to $55.70 in morning trading. The Fly, in fulfilling its mission of explaining stock movement, often comes across the many unconfirmed rumors being passed through trading desks and social media platforms. On the occasion that rumors or speculation appear on The Fly's news feed, it should be viewed not as giving credence to the conjecture, rather as simply highlighting its impact on the stock prices of the companies involved.

Outperform
Dunkin' Brands price target to $57 on sales momentum at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jason West said US franchisee checks indicted continued sales momentum thru Q4 driven by continued strength from Cold Brew, premium sandwiches, and easy comps. West said a shift towards higher quality products, which is more difficult for c-stores to replicate, is helping sales. The analyst raised his Q4 US same-store-sales estimate to +3% from +2.5% and raised Outperform rated Dunkin's price target to $57 from $53.

Buy
Dunkin' Brands price target raised to $61 from $57 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Stephen Anderson said his recent round of channel checks lead him to believe the launch of Dunkin' Donuts locations inside BJ's clubs is off to a solid start. He also thinks cold brew coffee platform extension can possibly drive comp sales in 2017 and that a reversal in coffee prices should reduce pressure on franchisees to raise menu prices. He raised his price target on Dunkin' shares to $61 from $57 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
