Grubhub Inc's reported a first-quarter profit on Thursday that topped Wall Street's view after the restaurant delivery service ramped up spending to woo restaurant partners and encourage customers to order more often and spend more. Grubhub, which is battling startups ranging from DoorDash and Uber Eats to Amazon.com Inc's Amazon Restaurants, has swept up more than a half-dozen companies since its April 2014 initial public offering and has been spending aggressively to fend off competition. During the first quarter, Grubhub had an increase in diners, improved quality and stable costs, the company's chief financial officer, Adam DeWitt, said.
Grubhub CEO Matt Maloney wasted no time telling investors what he thought of the competition in his company’s first quarter earnings call on Thursday. With Uber and Postmates IPOs pending and DoorDash experiencing rapid growth (by some measures, bigger than Grubhub), he spent the hour forcefully promoting his company’s strategy and position in the marketplace.

This marked a decline of roughly 78% when compared to its profit of $30.8 million, or 34 cents per share, during its first quarter of 2018.GrubHub's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA tallied up to $50.9 million during the company's first three months of 2019, sliding 21% year-over-year from the $64.1 million from the same period a year ago.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of the death of GrubHub (NASDAQ:GRUB) stock are premature.Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe restaurant delivery service reported disappointing quarterly results earlier this year and gave lackluster guidance as it ratcheted up marketing spending to launch the service in new cities. Still, GRUB isn't in any danger of going out of business at the hands of Uber Eats or anyone else though some bears may think otherwise.Though GRUB stock posted a small net loss of $5.2 million in the most recent quarter, GrubHub had positive net income in the preceding three quarters and earned $75.5 million in profit in 2018. Revenue rose 40% to $287.7 million in the last quarter and jumped 47% to $1 billion last year.Wall Street analysts are expecting GRUB to report earnings per share of 25 cents in the current quarter on revenue of $323 million in the current quarter, a 39% year-over-year increase. GRUB is scheduled to report earnings after the bell. Still A Market LeaderObviously, not everything is hunky-dory at GrubHub. The company is losing market share and faces two-well funded rivals in Uber, a "unicorn" planning a massive Initial Public Offering, and DoorDash, which is backed by Japan's SoftBank. * 7 Dividend Stocks That Could Double Over the Next Five Years GrubHub's share of the U.S. food delivery sales was 43% as of January, which isn't too shabby compared with DoorDash's 31% and Uber Eat's 26%, according to market researcher Second Measure. Growth in GrubHub and Uber Eats has slowed while smaller rival DoorDash has accelerated.The restaurant delivery market share data also fails to account for the surging demand for restaurant delivery services, which should create enough of a rising tide to lift all of the boats in the market. Moreover, there is still plenty of room for growth. A 2018 Gallup poll found that 84% of U.S. adults order food for takeout or delivery more than once per month, well above the 15% order online groceries or the 10 percent who buy meal kits online.Wall Street doesn't like it when companies invest in their business even when they are in highly competitive, fast-growing markets like GrubHub and would be derelict if they used the money on shareholder-friendly moves like stock buybacks. GrubHub has grown through acquisitions and may have to buy DoorDash or one of the ever-increasing number of rivals angling to get a piece of the restaurant delivery market. The company also doesn't seem to be getting any credit for the things it is doing right."…GrubHub still attracts high-frequency customers better than any other service," according to Second Measure. "In the first 10 weeks of this year, 17% of GrubHub's customers ordered food at least once a week, on average. And over 2% of its customers placed orders an average of three times per week or more. At Uber Eats, that number was only 1%." Grubhub Too Cheap To Ignore?Shares of GRUB stock have slumped about 99% since the start of the year and are a compelling value. They are trading at a nearly 60% discount to the average 52-week price target of Wall Street analysts of $103.95. While GRUB stock isn't cheap, trading at a trailing price-to-earnings multiple of 81, its multiple is still well below its 5-year high of 123.93, according to Reuters.

Consumers’ growing appetite for third-party delivery services is finally affecting Domino’s Pizza where it hurts — its pocketbook.

Food stocks GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB) and Shake Shak (NYSE:SHAK) are serving up tantalizing technical treats on the price charts. But for bullish investors, I suggest reining in the enthusiasm a bit and playing it safe.Source: Rik Panganiban via FlickrTechnically speaking, you could say that both GRUB and SHAK stock have something for every type of investor. That sounds agreeable, but investing in these food stocks isn't that simple …At the end of the day, everyone realizes there are bulls and bears in the market. However, there's also value, growth, momentum and income investing. In fact, there's more than a few variations and cross-contaminated styles to consider … and that's not just food stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis goes for the whole enchilada of publicly traded companies out there. And the way I see these two food stocks right now, GRUB stock is being served up as a contrarian, deep-value purchase, while SHAK looks like an All-American classic price pattern worth biting into. Food Stocks Buy 1: GrubHub (GRUB)The first of our pair of food stocks to buy is GrubHub. Shares of the food ordering and web-based delivery service platform are not exactly the flavor of the day on Wall Street. But don't let that dissuade you -- GRUB stock is a buy! * 10 Stocks to Sell Before They Give Back 2019 Gains With decent sales prospects of nearly 25% projected for the next five years, mid-cap pricing of just $6.15 billion and its recognizable name in this emerging industry trend, GRUB stock is one for contrarians to sink their teeth into.Technically, shares of this food stock look super tasty on the price chart as well!Currently, shares of GRUB are just coming off a confirmed variation of a four-month-long double-bottom pattern. With the formation finding support from the 62% retracement level and stochastics readying to cross from an oversold position, this food stock is a buy today.One caveat with buying GrubHub shares are earnings. The company's next quarterly confessional is slated for Thursday evening. Gap risk is heightened for a food stock like GRUB, which has a history of volatile post-report reactions and isn't a tendency to take lightly.As much, while this strategist believes the odds favor a bullish earnings event, nibbling on a smaller size order of GRUB stock makes sense. Alternatively, I'd recommend investors consider using the options market to gain long delta exposure with absolute, predetermined risk. Food Stocks Buy 2: Shake Shack (SHAK)It's a fact, even the best stocks go through corrective phases. And during SHAK stock's fairly short time as a publicly traded company, shares have witnessed a couple of larger periods of what some might call unruly price behavior. Still, these periods do act to serve up bullish platforms for higher prices like the correct cup-shaped base forming in this food stock since mid-2018.But that's not all this food stock is offering today's bullish investors.Currently SHAK stock is putting together an equally classic-looking tight handle consolidation that centered on the 62% retracement level. This is akin to the cherry on top of the sundae and sets this food stock up for a breakout entry:For investors interested in taking a bite out of this classic bullish pattern, a higher and above-average volume breakout 10 cents above the handle's high of $60.94 is the ideal entry point. Using a stop-loss of 7% to 8% in SHAK stock also works with buying this kind of setup. As with our other food stocks, earnings are just around the corner on May 2. * 7 Red-Hot E-Commerce Stocks to Consider Similarly, SHAK stock is also known for its volatile reactions.

When San Francisco's Evan Rich decided to open a casual spinoff to his acclaimed Rich Table restaurant, he knew RT Rotisserie had to have two elements: it needed to be somewhere he and his family would eat at everyday, and it needed to offer delivery. With the rising demand for convenience and speed, restaurant delivery has inflated in recent years to become a crucial factor in most restaurants' survival. About 40 percent of RT Rotisserie's business comes from orders placed through its exclusive third-party provider, Caviar.

During the Dot Com bubble, investors were buying the stock of any company that has had a website. Since then, the internet has evolved drastically and we now are in a new world order where we absolutely need it almost all day. The internet has become a necessity, though the reasons why vary for as many as we have people using it.Source: Shutterstock An important reason for tech's ubiquity is consumer conveniences. Food delivery is one of those, and for a great bunch of people, GrubHub (NYSE:GRUB) provides an essential service. With a few pokes at our smartphones, we can make food show up to our door from almost any restaurant.This is highly functional business with very few competitors but is this edge sustainable? The GrubHub stock is falling off a cliff so seemingly there is trouble on the horizon.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhile the S&P 500 is up 20% year-to-date, GRUB stock is down 15% for the same period. It has been underperforming the indices markedly since February. As markets pushed for new all-time highs, GRUB is falling into an abyss. How to Play GRUB StockIs this the time to catch the falling knife? The short answer is no. There is no rush to buy the shares at this time. Clearly the price action is telling us that there is something wrong -- don't be a hero.Before you label me a GRUB stock hater, this is nothing specific against the company itself. But I do have big problems with how the stock price action is unfolding into earnings events. * 7 Mid-Cap Stocks to Find the Market's Sweet Spot Among other things, GrubHub stock has a unicorn problem. Lyft (NASDAQ:LYFT) has already come to market with its initial public offering and an even bigger gorilla Uber will be coming next. And therein lies a giant problem for Grub.This is the hottest IPO in years, and aside from a passenger delivery service, Uber also has a budding food delivering food service through Uber Eats. The have deep pockets and they are not afraid to over spend. Moreover, this could eventually cause LYFT to also join the food delivery arena.This new competition from companies who don't currently care about margins puts even more pressure on the valuation for GrubHub stock. It's already stretched, as it sells at a 77x trailing price-to-earnings ratio and 6 time total sales.These are numbers that demand that GRUB deliver astonishing accelerating growth else price will continue falling until they reach equilibrium. Otherwise the stock cannot compete for investor bids against giant new entrants that who don't have as much margin pressures from Wall Street.So this could be a transition period for GRUB stock. Therefore by definition this makes it a questionable investment without any specific information on future plans. And since I don't have any, I will assume that I am at a disadvantage when bidding to buy the stock here on good faith.To make matters worse, its recent drop brings GRUB stock lower then the Christmas and recent earnings lows. This is an important level to hold because it was also pivotal in December of 2017. Technically, if GrubHub loses $65 per share, it could trigger a bearish pattern that would retest $45 per share. Although this is not a forecast, it could unfold given the right circumstances.Such pivotal zones usually offer support on the way down. But in this case, prices are falling too fast, so there is no evidence of recovery yet. These are signs that the bulls are tired of defending the neckline, therefore they're likely to lose it. In that case, the bears will overshoot lower and we will set new lows from two summers ago.So GrubHub is a falling knife with a very tiny handle and a large blade. Trying to catch it now requires a lot of skill and faith that the average investor does not likely have. It's probably better to let it fall onto the ground before picking it up so as not to lose any digits trying to time a perfect bottom.However, the earnings event is coming soon and those are always binary in nature. We don't know what the company is going to report, and more importantly we don't know how traders will react to those numbers.So it comes down to expectations. Maybe enough people expect the worst, and if so, then maybe GRUB can have a positive reaction to even marginal numbers.So the best play here is to use the options market, where one can risk a small amount to be long the stock through earnings. If I already owned the shares, I would buy protection puts in order to guard my assets through the event. Selling covered calls against stocks would also provide some cover against a stock sell-off.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.
