Wendy's announces 2020 goal of opening over 600 new restaurants globally

The Wendy's Company has announced a 2020 goal of opening more than 600 new restaurants across the globe. As part of its efforts to grow and differentiate the brand while keeping energy stewardship at the forefront, Wendy's recently unveiled a new "Smart Family of Designs," providing a portfolio of development options to franchisees, including buildings that fit into smaller footprints. These designs provide more access to real estate, the ability to customize needs for specific trade areas and reduces the development investment for franchisees looking to build new restaurants. Wendy's recently introduced the Smart 2.0 design, which reduces environmental impact with an even smaller footprint and features that promote energy efficiency, while targeting an additional $150,000 of savings in development costs. This next generation of Wendy's Smart designs, which were first introduced in 2017, complements the company's commitment to reduce the amount of energy used in company-owned and operated restaurants by 20% by 2025, as part of its participation in the Department of Energy's Better Buildings Challenge.

Perform
Wendy's initiated with a Perform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Bittner initiated Wendy's with a Perform rating, saying the company's investment story is focused around the management's 75% growth target for free cash flows based on accelerating sales, lower capital expenses, and positive tax changes. The analyst notes that while the company is "executing solidly", his Perform rating is based on financial targets already "baked in" to valuation and some "meaningful dependence" of free cash flow projections on strong comps and unit offerings. Bittner add that he is "positively biased" on any "irrational pullbacks" in the stock price.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wendy's (WEN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Alton Stump saying his conversations with U.S. Wendy's franchisees leads him to estimate that domestic franchised same-store sales are up 2%-2.5% to date in the first quarter. 2. Barclays (BCS) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Martin Leitgeb citing the company's capital progress and less risk from financial regulation for the upgrade. 3. Eaton (ETN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Andrew Orbin saying management outlined its long-term strategy for Industrial and Electrical segments growth and said a recent inflection in Electrical provides better visibility on margins. 4. Splunk (SPLK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Joseph Bonner saying the company is in a fast-growing market, though its success will depend on the execution of a ramp in software sales along with capturing market share without pressure on margins. 5. Dollar Tree (DLTR) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Karen Short saying she views the company's outlook as conservative and believes the recent share selloff provides an attractive entry point.
