Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ) fell more than 7% Tuesday after reporting second-quarter results, highlighted by a miss on U.S. same-store sales. Morgan Stanley's John Glass maintains an Overweight rating on Domino's with a price target lowered from $305 to $287. Argus' John Staszak maintains at Buy, price target lowered from $310 to $280.
Domino's Pizza Inc. Chief Executive Richard Allison said third-party delivery services like DoorDash and Uber Eats were a challenge during the second-quarter, and they aren't going away. "Our same-store sales performance for the quarter came in toward the lower end of our three-to-five-year outlook as we continue to navigate through headwinds related to aggressive activity from third-party aggregators," he said, according to a FactSet transcript. "I do not expect this activity to ease in the near term." Domino's reported a second-quarter revenue miss and same-store sales growth that missed expectations. "Domino's Pizza remains on the 'Biggest Concerns List' from CFRA Forensic Research Services, partly on sales and profit margin pressures and reduced operating leverage," wrote CFRA's Tuna Amobi in a note. CFRA maintained its hold opinion on Domino's stock but cut its price target to $270 from $290. BTIG remains bullish. "We maintain our buy rating on shares of Domino's Pizza following earnings as we believe the retail sales and market share gains the concept is generating will ultimately translate into a higher stock price," wrote analysts led by Peter Saleh. "While disappointed with domestic same-store sales results this quarter, new unit and retail sales growth remains healthy and we believe the stock's decline is more a function of elevated expectations rather than inflated valuation." BTIG cut its price target to $325 from $335. Domino's Pizza shares closed Tuesday down 8.7%, but are nearly unchanged in Wednesday trading. The stock has fallen 12.5% over the last year while the S&P 500 index has gained 6.6% for the period.

For his "Executive Decision" segment on Mad Money Tuesday night, Jim Cramer spoke with Rich Allison, president and CEO of Domino's Pizza, Inc. , which saw its shares fell 8.7% Tuesday after the company reported same-store sales growth of 3% when analysts were looking for a gain of 4.6%. While the 3% same-store sales number was admittedly at the lower end of guidance, Allison said he remains quite positive on Domino's outlook. Trading volume was heavy and the daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line moved sharply lower as prices closed on the low of the day.

The company is known for embracing technology, and it's done things like deliver pizza via robots and self-driving vehicles and allowed orders through cars and Alexa devices. It's experimented with cashless stores and even turning on smart home porch lights when the delivery person is near. The added capability won't just satisfy hungry customers.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Domino’s Pizza Inc. didn’t come in hot in the second quarter. The pizza-delivery chain said Tuesday that comparable sales at its U.S. restaurants rose 3% in the period from a year earlier, well below the 4.6% growth analysts had expected.Shares fell in early trading, and, to a certain extent, that is understandable. But this quarter’s results didn’t leave me with any fresh concerns about Domino’s long-term strategy or its ability to hold its own amid major changes in the U.S. food delivery market. While a 3% increase in comparable sales represents a slowdown in growth for an industry darling, it is still a solid result at a moment when restaurant traffic generally remains so weak. There’s another key reason that I am less alarmed by Domino’s comparable sales slowdown, even if it is more abrupt this quarter than expected. And that’s because it’s all part of a sensible strategy to adapt to a more competitive food-delivery environment.Domino’s is in the process of doing something it calls “fortressing.” Essentially, it means adding more locations in a concentrated area. The theory is that closer proximity to customers means better service in the form of shorter wait times and pizzas arriving hot. Additionally, the company has found that this approach tends to generate more carryout sales, which are often incremental business it wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. The downside of bulking up its restaurant portfolio in certain areas is that it creates pressure on Domino’s comparable sales, with revenue transferring from one store to another. Domino’s has said this created a comparable sales headwind last year of between 1% and 1.5%.I’m typically very skeptical of any established chain – restaurant or mall-based – embracing a massive store opening plan, given how saturated the U.S. market is. But Domino’s is an exception. With its focus on off-premise eating, cutting the time it takes to get from stores to customers is crucial to keeping itself differentiated as third-party delivery services such as DoorDash, Uber Eats and GrubHub Inc. barrel into more metro areas and give diners an explosion of choice for eating at home. In fact, Domino’s acknowledged feeling the heat of third-party services in the previous quarter, saying back in April that newcomers’ aggressive marketing promotions had been a competitive challenge.Better service also should help Domino’s maintain its edge against more traditional rivals such as Yum Brands Inc.’s Pizza Hut, which has been courting value-conscious diners with deals like a $5 medium pizza and a bigger push in delivery.Importantly, it seems Domino’s is trying to execute the fortressing plan in a way that shouldn’t roil its franchisee base. Executives have noted that a single franchisee is opening the fortressed stores within their own territory, so he or she is retaining transferred sales and seeing improved store-level profitability.I expect the rise of food delivery to massively disrupt the restaurant industry over the next decade. Domino’s is right to take a short-term hit to comparable sales – while it is in a position of real strength – to gird itself for the onslaught of competition.Plus, the fact that Domino’s didn’t revise its three- to five-year outlook on Tuesday suggests that the second-quarter results aren’t viewed internally as any kind of inflection point.Booming comparable sales growth can be comfort food for investors. Even though Domino’s didn’t offer that this quarter, it’s still on the right track.

Domino's Pizza Inc reported its slowest U.S. same-store sales growth in at least three years in the second quarter, driving shares lower and raising doubts about its strategy for fighting off competition from delivery apps. UberEats, DoorDash and GrubHub Inc have all pushed into the delivery business, which had been at the heart of Domino's expansion into the world's biggest pizza chain. In the second quarter of 2019, total U.S. same-store sales rose just 3%, below estimates and the slowest growth in at least three years.
