Of the 21 analysts that cover Domino’s Pizza (DPZ), 57.1% are favoring “buys” on the stock as of October 16. The remaining 42.9% have given it “holds.” No analysts have given the stock “sell” ratings. As of the same day, analysts have given the stock an average price target of $294.84, representing a potential upside of 13.6% from its price of $259.63.
The contraction was the result of the company’s adoption of a new accounting standard and a lower operating margin in its supply chain. Increased delivery and labor costs lowered the segment’s operating margin. The operating margin of Domino’s company-owned restaurants was negatively affected by commodity inflation, higher labor costs, and an increase in insurance expenses.
In the third quarter, Domino’s Pizza (DPZ) posted revenue of $786.0 million, a rise of 22.1% from the $643.6 million it reported in the third quarter of 2017. Domino’s year-over-year revenue growth was primarily driven by its adoption of a new accounting standard, which contributed $82.5 million, and its higher supply chain revenue. Increased revenue from its company-owned restaurants and franchised restaurants also contributed to its revenue growth during the quarter.
Domino’s Pizza (DPZ) posted its third-quarter earnings results on October 16. The company reported adjusted EPS of $1.95 on revenue of $786.0 million. YoY (year-over-year), its EPS rose 53.5%, while its revenue rose 22.1%.
