    Market Realist7 days ago

    Strong Earnings Drove Jack in the Box’s Valuation Multiple

    Of all the valuation multiples available, we have opted for the forward PE multiple due to high visibility in Jack in the Box’s (JACK) future earnings. The forward PE multiple is calculated by dividing the company’s stock price by analysts’ EPS estimates for the next four quarters. Management’s strong third fiscal quarter earnings and initiatives to drive the company’s sales appear to have increased investors’ confidence, which led to a rise in its stock price and valuation multiple.

  • Jack in the Box Outperformed Analysts’ Earnings Expectations
    Market Realist7 days ago

    Jack in the Box Outperformed Analysts’ Earnings Expectations

    Jack in the Box (JACK) posted an EPS of $1.70. Jack in the Box’s EPS growth was driven by the expanded EBIT margin, the lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases. Jack in the Box’s EBIT margin has improved from 15.5% to 26.4% due to refranchising company-owned restaurants, sales leverage from positive SSSG (same-store sales growth), and lower G&A (general and administrative) costs. The improvement was partially offset by increased labor expenses and higher repair and maintenance costs.

    What Drove Jack in the Box’s Same-Store Sales Growth?

    After posting systemwide negative SSSG (same-store sales growth) for the last five quarters, Jack in the Box (JACK) returned to the positive territory with an SSSG of 0.5%. During the quarter, the company posted an SSSG of 0.6% in company-owned restaurants. In franchised restaurants, the SSSG was at 0.5%. In company-owned restaurants, the SSSG was driven by 2.6% growth in the average check size due to more menu items and a favorable product mix. However, the transaction declined 2.0%, which partially offset some of the increase in the SSSG.

    How Wendy’s Valuation Multiple Compares with Peers

    Of all the available valuation multiples, we have opted for the forward PE (price-to-earnings) multiple due to high visibility in Wendy’s (WEN) future earnings. The forward PE multiple is computed by dividing the company’s stock price from analysts’ EPS estimates for the next four quarters. The better-than-expected second-quarter sales and aggressive expansion of delivery service by Wendy’s management appears to have increased investors’ confidence, leading to a rise in the company’s stock price and its valuation multiple.

    Wendy’s Second-Quarter EPS Failed to Meet Analyst Expectations

    In the second quarter, Wendy’s (WEN) posted EPS of $0.12. Wendy’s EPS growth was driven by higher adjusted revenue, a lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases in the last four quarters, partially offset by a fall in the adjusted EBITDA (earnings before, interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) margin. Due to the enactment of tax reforms, Wendy’s effective tax rate fell to 25.5% for the quarter compared to 38.9% in the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

    Shake Shack’s Valuation Multiple Falls on Weak Outlook

    Of the available valuation multiples, we have opted to use the forward EV-to-sales ratio, as Shake Shack (SHAK) is still in the growth phase of its business life cycle. Despite posting strong second-quarter earnings, Shake Shack didn’t raise its 2018 revenue guidance due to the delays in opening new restaurants. Analysts and investors appear to have been disappointed, as they expected the company’s management to raise its revenue guidance.
