UPGRADE

Buy
Wendy's upgraded to Buy following solid comp checks at Longbow
As previously reported, Longbow upgraded Wendy's to Buy from Neutral with a $18 price target. Analyst Alton Stump's checks with US franchisees indicate Q3 domestic franchised comps are up in a 3.0-3.5% range to date, above his prior estimate of 2.5%, as well as consensus at up 2.4%. The analyst is confident Wendy's will beat Q3 same-store sales growth estimates and expects the same in Q4. Further, Wendy's could generate over $300M of cumulative free cash flow in the 2017-2019 time frame taht could be sued to purchase as much as 15% of shares by the end of 2019, the analyst wrote in a note to investors.

Fast food restaurants more insulated from Amazon effects, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital says that fast food companies "are likely more insulated" from Amazon (AMZN) than other types of restaurants "due to their convenience-based usage occasions, low price points, and insulation from deflationary pressures." The firm identifies Wendy's (WEN) and McDonald's (MCD) as its favorite names in the fast food space.
