McDonald's Q2 U.S. comps ahead of consensus, says Cleveland Research

Cleveland Research analyst Steven Gojak said his checks lead him to believe that U.S. comparable store sales growth for McDonald's has improved compared to trend and is likely ahead of consensus expectations. The analyst, who pointed to strong check growth and modest traffic improvement, believes the second half outlook also sounds more positive. He keeps a Neutral rating on McDonald's shares.

Credit Suisse bullish on McDonald's, initiates with an Outperform
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Lauren Silberman initiated McDonald's with an Outperform and $230 price target. The analyst notes that recent asset and technology investments support a more modernized McDonald's, and believes the company is effectively expanding its competitive moat relative to peers. Same-store sales represent the "greatest source of upside to shares," with McDonald's slate of on-trend sales initiatives supporting outperformance, she contends, adding that healthy same-store sales, defensive characteristics and transition to about 95% franchised support the current premium valuation.

Investors see McDonald's outperforming, Starbucks underperforming, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull said his recent survey to measure investors' sentiment toward restaurant stocks revealed that McDonald's (MCD) and Yum! Brands (YUM) as the only large-cap restaurant stocks voted to outperform heading into earnings season, while most investors pointed to Starbucks (SBUX) as most likely among the large-caps to underperform in the near term despite the fact that investors surveyed expect the company to beat Q3 EPS expectations. O'Cull, who raised his Americas same-store sales growth forecast for Q3 to 5.0% from 4.0% and raised his FY19 and FY20 EPS estimates for Starbucks, increased his price target on the stock to $86 from $65, though he keeps a Hold rating on the shares. He also has Hold ratings on McDonald's and Yum! shares.
