Oppenheimer starts Dunkin' at Perform, awaits 'more attractive setup'

Oppenheimer analyst Brian Bittner initiated coverage of Dunkin' Brands with a Perform rating and no price target. The company's new financial targets are "solid" but fully captured by current consensus estimates, which limits upside potential, Bittner tells investors in a research note partially titled "Searching For A Caffeine Boost." Further, the analyst says Dunkin' trades at a slight premium to the global franchised peer average, "which creates a difficult case for multiple expansion and suggests some take-out premium possibly embedded." He prefers to wait for a "more attractive setup."

Dunkin' Brands downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak downgraded Dunkin' Brands to Hold, citing the management's plans to add fewer stores going forward and the company's prospects for low-single digit same-store sales growth. The analyst further notes that Dunkin' Brands' Q4 results were "mixed", lowering his FY19 EPS view to $3.02 from $3.08. Over the longer-term horizon, Staszak remains positive on the shares given the company's "strong franchise program, established brands, digital sales initiatives, and opportunities to expand into new sales channels and geographic regions."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Yelp (YELP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Mark May saying despite "solid" Q4 results and management's new bullish long-term targets, the company's sales outlook "points to more challenging near-term business conditions than we expected." 2. Dish (DISH) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Kannan Venkateshwar saying while he believes the stock's current price implies "a deep discount relative to its intrinsic value," that "valuation may be moot if Dish is unable to fund its build and vendors are unwilling to work with the company." 3. D.R. Horton (DHI) double downgraded to Market Perform from Strong Buy at Raymond James while PulteGroup (PHM) was downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform. 4. Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak citing the management's plans to add fewer stores going forward and the company's prospects for low-single digit same-store sales growth. 5. Sierra Wireless (SWIR) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at First Analysis and to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Dunkin' Brands unlikely to be acquired in foreseeable future, says Longbow
Longbow analyst Alton Stump said Dunkin' Brands' levered balance sheet, premium valuation, and slowing same-store sales and unit growth all make the company a less attractive acquisition target than 6 years ago when speculation started after JAB entered the coffee quick-serve category. He believes takeout speculation is primarily responsible for Dunkin' shares staying in the high $60 to low $70 range, though Stump sees an acquisition by JAB, or any other potential buyer, as unlikely in the foreseeable future, he tells investors. He maintains a Neutral rating on Dunkin' Brands shares.
