Yahoo Finance speaks with Chipotle CEO Brian Niccol on the state of his restaurant business amidst the coronavirus.
Grubhub founder and CEO Matt Maloney talks with Yahoo Finance about how the food delivery business is navigating the coronavirus pandemic.
Yahoo Finance catches up with Yum! Brands CEO David Gibbs to discuss how his business is faring during the coronavirus.
Many major retailers say they can’t pay rent for the month of April — and they are asking their landlords for deferrals.
Fast-food chain Wendy's Co said on Thursday it would defer rent and ease royalty and marketing fee payments for franchisees, amid growing pressure in the restaurant industry due to coronavirus-related outlet closures. The Ohio-based restaurant chain also reported same-store sales growth of only 2.8% so far in the first quarter and withdrew its forecasts, suspended share buybacks as the company prepares to battle the financial fallout of the pandemic. The U.S. restaurant industry is likely to be among the most severely hurt by the outbreak, as scared customers cook at home instead of dining out and governments force restaurants to shut dining rooms and switch to drive-thru, delivery and take-out only.
The coffee industry is a complex and multilayered one, including everything from producers and distributors to processors, wholesalers, and retailers. Notable names include Starbucks Corp. (SBUX), J.M.
Dunkin’ Brands shares are jumping after the coffee chain announced it is offering free delivery and $3 off from Grubhub. Yahoo Finance’s Heidi Chung joins Zack Guzman to discuss.

Dunkin' Brands Group Inc on Thursday said it will ease royalty and advertising fee payments for franchisees in the United States and Canada, while McDonald's Corp is in talks to reduce some payments for franchisees. Waiving that revenue and absorbing some of the blow themselves, the moves illustrate how some fast food brands are rushing to protect franchisees - who help power front-line sales - from the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. McDonald's is considering waiving rent and service fees for April and March, according to a source familiar with the conversations.
McDonald’s, Dunkin’ and other fast-food chains are changing the way they do business in an effort to combat the coronavirus.
Restaurant operators of all sizes are being impacted by the coronavirus and investors looking for exposure should follow the concept that "cash is king," according to BTIG.The Analyst Peter Saleh upgraded Dunkin Brands Group Inc (NASDAQ: DNKN) from Neutral to Buy with a $60 price target. The analyst maintains Texas Roadhouse Inc (NASDAQ: TXRH) at Buy.Dunkin Has Cash Dunkin is "flush with cash" with more than $375 million on hand which represents more than seven months of franchise fees and royalty revenue, Saleh said. The cash is also the equivalent of three times the annual dividend payment.The company has sufficient cash to cover a full-year of G&A and interest expense before it needs to tap additional sources of capital, the analyst wrote in a note. In addition, operators could be forced to increase leverage to help their franchisees and Dunkin certainly has "an ample cushion."Texas Roadhouse Has No Debt Texas Roadhouse's 50% decline over the past few weeks should be put in perspective, Saleh said. The company has zero debt, more than $100 million in cash and owns close to $500 million worth of land.The casual sit-down chain should be considered the "safest investment in casual dining right now" given its cash position, the analyst wrote. As such, the chain should be able to "recover faster than others."DNKN and TXRH Price Action Shares of Dunkin traded lower by 7.7% to $44.28.Related Links:How Trump Is Handling The Restaurant Biz Amid Coronavirus OutbreakMcDonald's Switches To 'Walk-In-Take-Out' Model In All Company-Owned Restaurants Due To CoronavirusLatest Ratings for DNKN DateFirmActionFromTo Mar 2020BTIG ResearchUpgradesNeutralBuy Feb 2020Argus ResearchDowngradesBuyHold Feb 2020Wells FargoMaintainsEqual-Weight View More Analyst Ratings for DNKN View the Latest Analyst RatingsSee more from Benzinga * Beyond Meat CEO Talks Health Claims, Asia And More With Cramer * Wendy's Nationwide Breakfast Launch Is Coming Soon * Guggenheim Incrementally Bullish On Dunkin' Brands(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

Since late January, Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND) has been under some selling pressure. Keep in mind that the shares have gone from $120 to $99.Source: calimedia / Shutterstock.com But of course, since the company went public in May 2019, this kind of volatility has been the norm. To get a sense of things, the initial offering price was $25 and the high was $239 on Beyond Meat stock, less than a year into trading.Yes it's typical to see wide swings with a hyper-growth IPO. And yet, Beyond Meat has been able to maintain its staggering ramp. During the latest quarter, the company reported revenues of $298 million, up 239% on a year-over-year basis. The company's plant-based meat offerings are available in more than 77,000 retail restaurants and foodservice outlets in over 65 countries. Just some of their marquee customers include Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), Mcdonald's (NYSE:MCD) and Dunkin Brands Group (NASDAQ:DNKN).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 9 Stocks to Buy If People Get Stuck at Home But despite all this, I actually think there are some things that investors need to be worried about. Why so? Well, let's take a look at three bearish factors for Beyond Meat stock: How Big Is The Opportunity…Really?According to research from UBS, the market for plant-based meat alternatives is forecasted to go from $4.6 billion in 2018 to a staggering $85 billion by 2030. And this estimate is not an outlier. Various other reports show strong growth.But investors should still take this with a grain of salt. After all, these forecasts are generally for the next five to ten years. So yes, that much can happen during such a short period of time.There are also some signs that adoption may not be as widespread. For example, a survey from Piper Sandler of 3,500 adults showed that 62% were not interested in plant-based meats.Something else: The health benefits may not be as strong as believed. Note that Beyond Meat is a processed food, with high levels of sodium and saturated fats.True, there are other reasons people eat plant-based meats, such as for animal welfare and even helping deal with climate change. But if the health benefits are not as great, then this could certainly mute some of the demand. CompetitionWhile Beyond Meat is the pioneer in its category and has developed its own intellectual property, these advantages may represent a weak moat. The fact is that there are numerous other companies also focused on the opportunity.For example, there are startup operations like Impossible Foods Inc. that have raised substantial amounts of venture capital. Traditional food companies are also developing their own alternatives, such as Nestle (OTCMKTS:NSRGY), Cargill and Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN). Such companies have strong distribution footprints and savvy marketing capabilities.In fact, there are already signs of pricing pressures, which could weigh on margins for Beyond Meat. To this end, Impossible Foods recently discounted its wholesale products by 15%. Valuation On Beyond Meat StockThe valuation on Beyond Meat stock is certainly far from cheap. Note that the shares currently trade at about 13.5 times sales. This is something you typically see with a red-hot software startup, not a food manufacturer.Wall Street analysts are also skeptical. The average price target is $103, which assumes only about 4% upside from current levels.Now it's true that there should be a premium on Beyond Meat stock. But still, it does seem like much of the good news is already baked in. So even a slight deceleration in growth -- which seems reasonable because of the competition and pressure on margins -- makes the shares vulnerable.Tom Taulli (@ttaulli) is the author of various books on investing and technology, including Artificial Intelligence Basics, High-Profit IPO Strategies and All About Short Selling.
