Chipotle valuation 'increasingly challenging to justify,' says Wells Fargo

In a research note titled "We Think Queso Failed To Add The Zest To 3Q SSS Many Investors Craved," Wells Fargo analyst Jeff Farmer says Chipotle Mexican Grill's "premium valuation as increasingly challenging to justify." Lingering food safety concerns and a "perceived lukewarm initial consumer reception" to Chipotle's first TV-backed new product launch, queso, indicate another quarter of "underwhelming" average unit volume recovery and "sizable" downward earnings risk to 2018 and 2019 estimates, Farmer argues. He models Q3 same-store-sales being down 0.2%, versus the consensus expectations of up 2.0%. Chipotle reports Q3 results on October 24. Farmer keeps a Market Perform rating on Chipotle shares.

Neutral
Chipotle beginning to look interesting for long-term investors, says Baird
Baird analyst David Tarantino said the risk/reward of Chipotle is starting to look more interesting for patient, long-term investors following the stock's extended pullback. He said he is hesitating to raise his rating in the near-term due to risk of sluggish sales trends leading to further downward revision to consensus estimates, keeping a lid on sentiment in the short run. Tarantino maintained his Neutral rating and lowered his price target to $340 from $385 on Chipotle shares.

Chipotle estimates lowered at BTIG
BTIG analyst Peter Saleh lowered his Q3 SSS estimate for Chipotle to 0.5% from 3%, citing the impact of the norovirus incident at the company's restaurant in July. The analyst says that any impact from the company's launch of its Queso product will probably be "fairly modest" as consumers appear to have a "fairly negative" view of it, according to the analyst. He lowered his Q3 EPS estimate for the company to $1.72 from $2.05 and keeps a Neutral rating on the stock.

He said the trends show sales softened further to end the third quarter, suggesting value perceptions are near trough levels. Charles reiterated his Underperform rating and $250 price target on Chipotle shares.
