"We appreciate Krispy Kreme’s effort to enhance shareholders’ value. We believe that the new share repurchase authorization affirms the company’s positive outlook and reflects solid growth potential going forward."
"Over the last 7 days, there has been no movement in the analysts’ estimate. However, we believe that the news of the share buyback program might encourage the analysts to pull their estimates upward. The current Zacks Consensus Estimate for first-quarter 2012 is 10 cents per share. For full year 2012 and 2013, the Zacks Consensus Estimates are 27 cents and 34 cents, respectively."
