Outperform
McDonald's price target raised to $195 from $190 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Andrew Strelzik raised his price target on McDonald's to $195 after its Q1 earnings beat that was driven by high "comps, franchised margins, and refranchising gains". The analyst is also increasing his forecasts for FY18 and FY19 EBITDA and EPS on expectations of stronger comp trends and refranchising momentum, keeping his Outperform rating.

Conviction Buy
McDonald's upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler added McDonald's to the Conviction Buy List following the pullback in shares driven by US comp trajectory concerns into and following the Q1 report. Fassler is confident in a re-acceleration in comps as the company moves past January disruptions related to the transition to national value, and a normalizing competitive environment. Fassler notes McDonald's February share of advertising voice grew 3% year-over-year, versus a January decline of 24%, addressed traffic weakness by adding back regional value, and should benefit from remodel spending.

Market Perform
Starbucks appears expensive in U.S. restaurant space, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Sara Senatore told investors in a research note that in the U.S. restaurant space, Starbucks (SBUX) appears expensive. She views the relatively large valuation as "surprising" given that she believes the risk to growth is more likely to the downside than the upside, and thinks Starbucks is confronting an increasingly mature U.S. market, lower marginal returns and slower growth. She expects fundamental upside from peers McDonald's (MCD), Darden (DRI), Chipotle (CMG) and Yum! (YUM). Senatore has a Market Perform rating and $64 price target on Starbucks.
