As of February 14, 2018, Domino’s Pizza (DPZ) was trading at $209.78. Analysts were expecting the stock to reach $229.75 in the next 12 months, which represents a return potential of 9.5%. Domino’s better-than-expected 3Q17 earnings and the recent tax reform legislation appear to have compelled analysts to raise their target prices.
Due to the high visibility of Domino’s Pizza’s (DPZ) earnings, we’ve opted to use the forward PE (price-to-earnings) multiple. A forward PE multiple is calculated by dividing a company’s stock price by analysts’ earnings estimate for the next four quarters. Although the stock has increased 0.3% since the announcement of its 3Q17 earnings, Domino’s valuation multiple has declined due to analysts’ higher EPS (earnings per share) estimates for the next four quarters.
In 4Q17, analysts are expecting Domino’s Pizza (DPZ) to post EPS (earnings per share) of $1.96, which represents a rise of 32.4% from $1.48 in 4Q16. EPS growth is expected to be driven by revenue growth, expansion of EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margins, share repurchases in the last four quarters, and a lower effective tax rate. The company’s management had forecast that its market basket cost would increase 2% for its domestic stores in 2017 compared to 2016, which is expected to raise the company’s cost of sales by 0.1% of its total revenue.
