Buffalo Wild Wings may receive a bid competing with Roark Capital, says Maxim

Maxim analyst Stephen Anderson notes yesterday's press speculation of a bid for Buffalo Wild Wings from Roark Capital, saying that while the $150/share price is "plausible", there is potential for a competing bid given the company-specific initiatives to cut expenses and an improving food cost climate. Anderson says that despite the industry headwinds and the pending exit of CEO Sally Smith, the company is laying the groundwork for a return to SSS growth, margin expansion, and increased shareholder returns. The analyst also says the recent decline in spot wing costs, already down 15% since summer end, will add to EPS next year. Anderson keeps his Buy rating and $160 price target on Buffalo Wild Wings.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Regal Entertainment (RGC) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Leo Kulp saying he views the current valuation, at seven times this 2018 estimate, as "compelling." 2. Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Dougherty with analyst Jeremy Hamblin saying expectations for a recovery remain low but sees margin improvement as a critical component to future success and views share risk/reward as favorable. 3. Western Gas Partners (WES) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Selman Akyol noting its transactions to strengthen its capital structure and citing his expectations for strong growth into 2018 and beyond. 4. Crane (CR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global with analyst Wait Liptak citing improving sector growth rates as evidenced new orders and backlog trends. 5. Lear (LEA) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Joseph Spak saying third quarter results should give greater confidence into the resiliency of the company's margins.

Roark Capital prime candidate to re-invigorate Buffalo Wild Wings, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh says Buffalo Wild Wings has suffered from persistent "top-line weakness as well as a slippage of differentiation and everyday-value". The latest Wall Street Journal report suggesting that Roark Capital bid $150/share positions it as a prime candidate to "re-invigorate the experience, menu quality, and value", given their historical success and long-term ownership of brands, including Arby's, Carvel, and Carl's Jr, says the analyst in his research note. Slabaugh has an Equal-Weight rating on the stock with a price target of $115.

Roark a credible buyer, Buffalo Wild Wings may be a willing seller, says Stifel
After The Wall Street Journal reported that Buffalo Wing Wings has received a takeover bid from private-equity firm Roark Capital, Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull said he thinks Roark could be a credible buyer given its success with several restaurant investments, including Wingstop, and that BWW could be a willing seller given Marcato's involvement and the company's recent struggles defining a clear vision for improving shareholder value. O'Cull has a Hold rating and $115 price target on Buffalo Wild Wings shares.

Buffalo Wild Wings price target raised to $150 from $110 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jeff Farmer raised his price target for Buffalo Wild Wings to $150 from $110 after The Wall Street Journal reported that Roark made a takeover offer "of more than $150 a share in recent weeks." The analyst believes that a potential Roark acquisition coming to fruition is driven by Roark's history within the restaurant space, Buffalo Wild Wings' woeful fundamentals across both same-store sales and EPS, the relatively ineffective activist investor and leadership void. Farmer reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares.
