Repeat spreads in Papa Johns

Repeat spreads in Papa Johns. The stock off 71c to $50 and 3.1K Apr 45 - Oct 50 call spreads sold at 50c (sold October). The spread is similar to a larger print from Tuesday when 10.1K Apr 47.5 - Oct 52.5 call spreads sold at $1.60, untied. The activity at that time opened short calls in October and closed in April. Today likely does the same roll, adjusting an overwrite and expressing the view that shares will see limited upside through October. The stock up 25% YTD with the company due to deliver its next earnings in early-May.

Overweight
Papa John's guidance better than feared, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh said Papa John's February update was "somewhat encouraging" and that the company's guidance for FY19 was "better than feared." While he expects sales and margins to remain pressured throughout 2019, Slabaugh thinks market expectations are for a choppy recovery and the quarterly report "helped to keep the hope for $2.00 in EPS power alive," he tells investors. He maintains an Overweight rating and $55 price target on Papa John's shares.

Hold
Papa John's upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull upgraded Papa John's International to Hold from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $45 from $35. The analyst believes the company's turnaround has entered a phase where investors believe the worst is behind it "and are willing to accord the company a hall pass to see whether the sales plan can work." The more optimistic sentiment stems from the view that the new board of directors and new brand spokesperson Shaquille O'Neal can reverse the declining traffic and EBITDA trends, O'Cull tells investors in a research note titled "Sell Thesis Not a Slam Dunk; Investors Optimism Outweighing Fundamentals." The analyst remains concerned that low franchisee profits will require ongoing financial support from Papa John's and declining transactions will pressure commissary profits, but he believes investor optimism will likely outweigh these fundamental issues in the near-term.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Loop Capital with analyst Anthony Chukumba citing the recent proxy contest threat was posed by an activist hedge fund consortium amassing 5% of the company stock. 2. Papa John's (PZZA) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel with analyst Chris O'Cull saying he believes the company's turnaround has entered a phase where investors believe the worst is behind it "and are willing to accord the company a hall pass to see whether the sales plan can work." 3. ON Semiconductor (ON) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney saying while not immune to cyclical risks, ON has improved its exposure to secular opportunities in advanced driver assistance system image sensors, electric vehicles and the cloud. 4. Ralph Lauren (RL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Ike Boruchow saying he views the company as a "rare standout" in his space, with increased visibility, running ahead of plan and with the potential for accelerating growth in the years ahead. 5.
