BMO Capital analyst…

BMO Capital analyst Andrew Strelzik raised the firm's price target on Wingstop to $185 from $175 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The company's Q2 earnings beat was driven by stronger comps and margins, with the management also boosting its 2021 unit growth guidance despite the more cautious outlook for the second half of the year due to rising wing costs, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

Stephens analyst James Rutherford raised the firm's price target on Wingstop to $190 from $172 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares, stating in post-earnings research note to investors that he was "pleased to see" domestic unit growth accelerate to nearly 14% year-over-year and for the company to increase its FY21 outlook for unit growth to 12%. While wing prices are a headwind to unit margins, and guided to remain so for the rest of the year, the company sees a boosted bird supply in 2022, noted Rutherford.

RBC Capital analyst…

RBC Capital analyst Christopher Carril raised the firm's price target on Wingstop to $168 from $159 but keeps a Sector Perform rating on the shares. The company's Q2 earnings beat demonstrates its ability to lap difficult COVID compares while maintaining sales gains made over the past year, but its current valuation reflects the current momentum and growth potential, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

In an interview on…

In an interview on CNBC's Mad Money, Charlie Morrison said Wingstop invested in digital years ago and made it the forefront of the company's strategy. "We're investing capital aggressively to build out our tech stack," he noted. Wingstop is opening its first location in Manhattan in about a month and plans to open 25 ghost kitchens in the area. Wingstop is a global grand and growing quickly in the UK as well as markets in Western Europe, he said. Each location can operate with as few as three to four employees. Morrison thinks current high food costs are transitory and the problem will resolve itself in early 2022.

Reports Q2 revenue $74.0M, consensus $73.13M. "Our results in Q2 continue to prove the strength of our brand and our growth strategies.

"Despite the challenging commodity environment, we had another record quarter for development and have now opened more than 200 restaurants during the last 12 months, highlighting our brand partners' continued excitement to grow with our brand. We believe we are well positioned to execute against our strategic long-term growth drivers."

As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Gregory Francfort initiated coverage of Jack in the Box with a Buy rating and $135 price target. The analyst is positive on the company's long-term alignment of franchisees and franchisors and the renewed potential of unit growth following years of stagnation, supported by improved franchisee profitability and new management. Francfort adds that Jack in the Box is also positioned well for U.S. inflation worries.

Guggenheim analyst Gregory Francfort initiated coverage of Domino's Pizza with a Neutral rating and $535 price target. The company's strong continued growth is offset by a high multiple that may create a better entry point going forward, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Francfort adds that concerns about Domino's lapping strong sales do not appear warranted with the company holding the revenue upside even as the economy has opened up.

As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Gregory Francfort initiated coverage of Chipotle with a Neutral rating and $1,750 price target. The company is continuing to post strong sales but much of the growth over the next several years has been priced into the stock, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Shareholders' estimated 9% return over time from current levels is healthy but does not leave a ton of room for potential hiccups, Francfort adds.
