Overweight
Papa John's risk/reward looks attractive on pullback, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh attribute Papa John's softer than expected Q4 domestic same-store sales to the negative news flow from comments on the company's last earnings call along with continued aggressive value offerings from competitors. However, he thinks the weak quarter and guidance were somewhat expected by investors and he views the risk/reward as attractive on a pullback, given that he foresees improving trends throughout the year and thinks its guidance is beatable. Slabaugh lowered his price target on the stock to $70 from $75 but maintains his Overweight rating on Papa John's.

Papa John's downgraded to Neutral following comp miss at Longbow
As previously reported, Longbow downgraded Papa John's to Neutral from Buy following the Q1 earnings and comp miss. Analyst Alton Stump is concerned Papa John's may not have a recovery in comps in the near-term and recommends investors wait for a significant pullback and or evidence same-store-sales being to recover in the coming quarters before becoming constructive on shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Crocs (CROX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Jim Duffy saying he believes the stock has "adequately" re-rated to discount fiscal 2019 earnings power. 2. Monster Beverage (MNST) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Andrea Teixeira saying she sees a "difficult road ahead" for the company following its first quarter results. 3. Adient (ADNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Armintas Sinkevicius saying that recent management commentary appears to have taken the potential for strategic action involving the underperforming metals business off the table. 4. Ironwood (IRWD) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst David Lebowitz saying he believes management's target of Linzess U.S. sales exceeding $1B by 2020 could be a challenge given the recent deceleration in volume growth. 5. Papa John's (PZZA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Alton Stump saying he is concerned Papa John's may not have a recovery in comps in the near-term and recommends investors wait for a significant pullback and or evidence same-store-sales being to recover in the coming quarters before becoming constructive on shares.
