Houston Pizza Venture, one of the largest Papa John's (PZZA) franchisees in the country, will now add solar to its 100% renewable energy purchase as part of a nine-year agreement with TXU Energy.

Beginning in 2018, solar power from the new Luminant Upton 2 Solar Power Plant in West Texas will also make up nearly a quarter of the restaurant company's renewable energy mix. TXU Energy is a subsidiary of Vistra Energy (VST).

Citi sees increasing likelihood of Vistra acquiring Dynegy
After hosting investor meetings with managements in Texas, Citi analyst Praful Mehta believes the likelihood of a Dynegy (DYN) acquisition by Vistra Energy (VST) is increasing. He views price as the "likely gating item" and continues to expect an $11-$12 per share buyout price for Dynegy in an all stock deal. Vistra management seems "more open to the deal than we originally interpreted," Mehta tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes a private equity exit for Calpine (CPN) is increasing likely as the company continues with its reported sale process.

Papa John's Q2 U.S. comp sales exceeding expectations, says Longbow
After speaking with Papa John's franchisees, Longbow analyst Alton Stump estimates that the company's U.S. system-wide comp sales have risen 2.5%-3% so far this quarter, versus the consensus outlook of a 2.2% increase. The analyst says that comp sales were boosted by the company's expanded partnership with MLB and its two medium, two topping pizzas for $6.99 each promotion. Stump is now more confident that the company is recovering from its weaker than expected domestic comp performance in late 2016 and early 2017. He expects it to continue to gain share and keeps a $95 price target and a Buy rating on the stock.
