Papa John's sees special charges of $25M-$35M for Q4

The negative publicity surrounding the company's brand that began in July 2018 has continued to impact the North America system-wide sales and the company cannot predict how long and the extent to which negative publicity will continue, Papa John's said. As previously noted, the company incurred $24.8 million of Special charges during the third quarter. The company expects to continue to incur significant Special charges for the remainder of 2018, which could continue into 2019, as a result of the above-mentioned events. The Special charges are now expected to approximate $50 million to $60 million for the full-year 2018, including a recently announced contribution to the national marketing fund in the fourth quarter. The Special charges for the fourth quarter are expected to approximate $25 million to $35 million.

Domino's Pizza price target raised to $305 from $285 at Maxim
Maxim analyst Stephen Anderson raised his price target on Domino's Pizza (DPZ) to $305 after its investor meeting with the management last week, saying the company is "building a global fortress" and remains "unfazed" by competition. The analyst says Domino's Pizza should sustain its "best in class" performance in spite of the woes experienced by Papa John's (PZZA) and Pizza Hut (YUM) as it seeks more operational efficiencies on a "global scale" even though it may take a few quarters for cost savings to materialize. Anderson keeps his Hold rating on the shares, awaiting a deeper pullback before considering a more bullish stance.

Yum! Brands price target raised to $102 from $92 at BTIG
BTIG analyst Peter Saleh raised his price target on Yum! Brands (YUM) to $102 and kept his Buy rating, citing his greater confidence in the company's unit growth trends and potential for driving same-store sales gains. In the short run, the analyst points to the benefits coming from its Pizza Hut business and its partnership with the NFL, its new advertising campaign, and the potential market share gains from sales declines at Papa John's (PZZA). Longer term, Saleh sees "stronger international unit growth after the closing of the Telepizza master franchise deal "which should drive unit growth closer to 4.0%", along with benefits coming from all of Yum's segments' partnership with GrubHub (GRUB).

Papa John's price target raised to $48 at Stifel on higher odds of deal
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull said he has a "conflicted" view on Papa John's because fundamentals remain poor, but this has likely motivated the board to move quickly to take advantage of a "white-hot restaurant M&A market." While stating he has "no knowledge of a potential M&A transaction," O'Cull believes a strategic acquirer seems more likely than financial sponsor given the latter would be difficult due to the level of equity investment required. O'Cull keeps a Hold rating on Papa John's shares, but raised his price target to $48 from $38 to reflect what he sees as a higher probability of a deal occurring.

Papa John's U.S. comps began to recover in mid-September, says Longbow
Longbow analyst Alton Stump believes, based on his talks with Papa John's franchisees, that U.S. same-store sales began to recover in mid-September and to-date in October, which could drive upside for both its earnings and the stock's multiple. Same-store sales, which were down 11.5%-12% in August, recovered to a 9%-9.5% decline in September and a 7.5%-8% decline in October to-date, Stump estimates. He keeps a Buy rating on Papa John's shares.
