Equal Weight
Sonic downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh downgraded Sonic (SONC) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that given the premium valuation that Inspire Brands has agreed to pay he does not expect any competing bids. The analyst, who raised his price target on Sonic shares to $43.50 from $40, added that he views Roark's acquisition of the company as "somewhat unique" and does not expect the "floodgates of restaurant M&A to open." His previously published list of potential takeout targets in the restaurant space includes Red Robin (RRGB), Chuy's (CHUY) and BJ's Restaurants (BJRI).

Jefferies continues to see upside potential in shares of Papa John's
Jefferies analyst Alexander Slagle continues to believe Q3 will represent the worst in terms of fundamentals for Papa John's (PZZA) and that "ultimate upside potential outweighs downside." The analyst recommends looking past fear of near-term trends and buying shares of Papa John's. An analysis of potential refranchising and leveraged buyout scenarios suggest there continues to be opportunities for value creation, Slagle tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that even without a buyout, there is a three-to-five year path to recovery that could return Papa John's to its normalized earnings/EBITDA levels and growth rate, potentially driving $4.00-plus of earnings per share by 2020. Slagle adds that based on this week's acquisition of Sonic (SONC) by Inspire Brands, Papa John's would be worth $63.50 per share in a buyout. He keeps a Buy rating on Papa John's with a $58 price target.

Neutral
Sonic downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Nick Setyan downgraded Sonic to Neutral from Outperform but raised his price target to $43.50 from $42 following the acquisition offer from Inspire Brands. In a research note to investors, Setyan says that, in hindsight, the offer of Sonic is "not surprising" and that he views competing bidders as "unlikely." He continues to believe Sonic is positioned as the main net transaction share gainer within the quick service restaurant burger category over the medium term, but downgraded shares to reflect the high probability of the Inspire Brands deal closing.
