Dunkin' Brands to repurchase $650M under accelerated share repurchase agreements

In a regulatory filing earlier, Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) disclosed that it entered into accelerated share repurchase agreements with each of Citibank (C) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) to repurchase an aggregate of $650M of the company's common stock. The company will acquire the shares under the ASR agreements as part of its previously announced $650M share repurchase program, Dunkin' noted. Pursuant to the terms of the ASR agreements, on February 16, the company will make payments of $650M in the aggregate to the dealers and will receive an initial delivery of approximately 8,479,000 shares of the company's common stock in the aggregate from the dealers, which is approximately 80% of the total number of shares of the company's common stock expected to be repurchased under the ASR agreements. Final settlement of each ASR agreement is expected to be completed in August 2018, although the settlement may be accelerated at the dealer's option.

William Blair upgrades Dunkin' to Outperform ahead of Q4 results
William Blair analyst Sharon Zackfia upgraded Dunkin' Brands to Outperform from Market Perform with the stock trading at 22 tomes her new 2018 earnings estimate. Innovation at the company has accelerated to the point where upside to 2018 comp estimates is possible, Zackfia tells investors in a research note previewing the Q4 earnings for Restaurants. The analyst now sees "muted" risk of further development slowdowns in the U.S. given tax savings for Dunkin's franchisees and excitement around the new prototype. She also believes new units in California are likely trending better than most investors suspect.

Starbucks brand strength still like 'Nike without adidas,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst John Glass said that, unfortunately, the near-term top-line prospects for Starbucks have gotten no better, but he does not believe the brand is "broken." Starbucks still has high customer frequency, a huge competitive moat and no competitors of scale virtually anywhere in the world, said Glass, who compared the brand to "Nike without Adidas, Coke without Pepsi." Pressure from the value-end, such as McDonald's (MCD) and Dunkin' (DNKN), is not new and he is not yet convinced this will be Starbucks' "undoing," Glass tells investors. The analyst, who is still "disappointed, if not surprised" by Starbucks' recent weaker top-line performance, keeps his Overweight rating and $72 price target on the shares.

Dunkin' Brands upgraded to Outperform at BMO Capital on better comps view
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Andrew Strelzik upgraded Dunkin' Brands to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target to $69 from $64. Strelzik cites his increased confidence following the company's investor meeting that the "next gen store image" can refresh the brand and produce an inflection in comps into 2019, estimating 50-100bps in annualized comp improvement. The analyst adds that the company has "strong visibility" in its remodeling progress.
