Maxim Group Releases a Hold Rating on Cracker Barrel

Maxim Group analyst Stephen Anderson assigned a Hold rating to Cracker Barrel (NASDAQ: CBRL) today and set a price target of $155. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $148.42.

Anderson observed:

“Cracker Barrel (CBRL) reported F4Q17 (April) EPS of $2.23, which were above our $2.20 estimate and the $2.19 Street mean. CBRL’s restaurant-level comp of -0.8% missed consensus, though we were encouraged by improving monthly comp trends as the quarter progressed. The company’s retail sales were down 4.4% y/y, and we contend visibility here remains low as we believe retail sales are being hurt by Amazon and other online retailers.”
