Potbelly reports Q2 EPS 13c, consensus 13c

Reports Q2 revenue $110.3M, consensus $112.41M. Company-operated comparable store sales decreased 0.2%. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 2.6% to $11.5M from $11.8M.Alan Johnson, Chief Executive Officer and President of Potbelly Corporation, commented, "We are pleased with our performance in the second quarter, where we delivered revenue of $110 million and adjusted EPS of $0.13. We are encouraged by the improvement in our company-operated same store sales, which was nearly flat at -0.2%, and was driven by stronger traffic and higher check. The positive trajectory of our comp trends confirms to me that we are effectively executing on our traffic building initiatives." Johnson, continued, "While we are encouraged by our performance through the first half of the year, we recognize that 2018 is a transition year for Potbelly and there is still much work to be done. However, we have assembled the right leadership team and are executing on the right strategies to effect a successful turnaround of the Company."

Potbelly naming new CEO removes some uncertainty, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Stephen Anderson nudged his price target on Potbelly to $13 from $12, saying the company's naming of Alan Johnson as new CEO removes some management uncertainty as it continues to undergo a strategic review. Anderson keeps his Hold rating, noting that any potential upside from the review is likely to be offset by a still-uncertain fundamental outlook. The analyst believes that the most likely outcome of the review is a more aggressive refranchising program, with the proceeds to be used to buy back shares.

Potbelly, Del Taco may see largest EPS tailwind from tax reform, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo argues that Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO), El Pollo Loco (LOCO) and Jack in the Box (JACK) could see the largest EPS accretion tailwind from a reduced corporate tax rate, with Restaurant Brands (QSR), Red Robin (RRGB), Noodles & Company (NDLS) and Yum! Brands (YUM) the companies that could see the smallest tailwind. Recent restaurant rally indicates that virtually the entire sector has benefited from anticipation of potential tax reform, with the most heavily shorted names seeing an amplified move, the firm adds.
