El Pollo Loco appoints Miguel Lozano COO

El Pollo Loco (LOCO) announced the appointment of Miguel Lozano as COO, effective April 1. Bringing 30 years of restaurant industry experience, Lozano is the third addition in 12 months to the newly restructured senior leadership team to continue the pursuit of the brand's transformation agenda.

Since 2014, he was responsible for running 780 company-operated Starbucks stores in Southern California, which generated over $1.4B in sales. In his new role, Lozano will play a central part in formulating organizational strategy, driving brand growth and profitability. He will create the vision for all operations.

M&A interest could put near-term floor under restaurant valuations, says Baird
Baird analyst David Tarantino said Sonic's (SONC) agreement to be acquired by Inspire Brands, which also bought Buffalo Wild Wings last year, underscores that private equity firms continue to have interest in putting money to work in the restaurant sector, which he thinks could help to put a floor on the valuations of publicly-traded restaurant stocks. Among the stocks in the sector that he covers, Tarantino views Jack in the Box (JACK), El Pollo Loco (LOCO), Chuy's (CHUY), Habit Restaurants (HABT) and Potbelly (PBPB) as among those that theoretically could attract buyout interest at their current multiples, he tells investors.

Wingstop upgraded to Buy after meetings add confidence at Guggenheim
As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Matthew DiFrisco upgraded Wingstop (WING) to Buy from Neutral after meetings at the firm's Emerging Growth Restaurant Summit reaffirmed that consumer restaurant demand is strengthening. He has increased confidence in Wingstop's ability to support mid-single digit same-store sales growth and double-digit expansion through 2025 following the meetings, DiFrisco tells investors. Following the event, the analyst set an $80 price target on Wingstop shares and he also raised his price target on El Pollo Loco (LOCO) to $17 from $14 and increased his price target on Habit Restaurants (HABT) to $17 from $15.

Outperform
Starbucks posted strongest comp since June 2017, says William Blair
The highlight of Starbucks' fiscal Q1 results last night was the consolidated comp gain of 4%, the strongest since June 2017 and inclusive of stable trends in the United States and China and an uptick in U.S traffic to flat, William Blair analyst Sharon Zackfia tells investors in a research note. She raised her 2019 earnings per share estimate to $2.73 from $2.66 and 2020 estimate by 2c to $3.02. With an improving tone of business in the United States and earnings guidance that could position the company for organic non-tax-related upside for the first time since 2016, the shares remain attractive at 23 times the new 2019 calendar estimate, Zackfia writes. She keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

Starbucks growth drivers accelerating performance, says Tigress Financial
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth kept his Buy rating on Starbucks, saying its business performance is being accelerated by "key growth drivers including new product introductions and store growth combined with increasing operating efficiencies". The analyst adds that future growth will be driven by the company's ongoing international expansion, while its "enhanced digital capabilities and growing its customer loyalty program" can lead to traffic increase in typically less busy "dayparts".

Starbucks' 'solid' comp trends continued into Q2, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Sharon Zackfia says her recent investor meetings with Starbucks management "suggested a more agile and more focused approach to the business." This has yielded opportunities to bolster comps in both the United States and China with a focus on digital, throughput improvements in peak periods, and delivery, Zackfia tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes management's tone is consistent with her belief that Starbucks' "solid" comp trends have continued into the second quarter. Starbucks is well positioned to meet or beat its earnings guidance for 2019, concludes Zackfia. She keeps an Outperform rating on the shares and sees multiple expansion as well as double-digit earnings growth to propelling the stock.

Luckin could quickly overtake Starbucks in China, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull said "it is no secret" that Luckin Coffee has made meaningful inroads in China's coffee market, noting that it has been widely reported that Luckin is projected to have 4,500 units by the end of this year, which is more than Starbucks' expected 4,200 units. He estimates Luckin's menu prices are generally 20%-30% below Starbucks, which has led many investors and some competitors to question the sustainability of these lower prices. However, O'Cull said his analysis suggests Luckin's retail model operates with lower costs and he contends its low-cost retail model is sustainable. Luckin may be positioned to gain disproportionate share in China, making it more challenging for Starbucks to grow sales there, concludes O'Cull, who keeps a Hold rating on Starbucks with a $65 price target.
