Buffalo Wild Wings Given Buy Rating at Deutsche Bank (BWLD)
Deutsche Bank reissued their buy rating on shares of Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ: BWLD) in a research report released on Monday morning. Deutsche Bank currently has a $95.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $90.00.
“Chicken wing prices have fallen ~20% since the Super Bowl. Prices are now down y/y for the first time since late 2011. The recent wing price of ~$1.63/lb. compares to our forecast of ~$1.94/lb. for 2013 in our BWLD model. Further, fundamentals appear generally supportive of lower wing prices, with wings in storage up 66% y/y (vs. -46% y/y at this time last yr) and rising chicken production. A continuation of recent wing price trends could potentially add ~30c (~8%) to our current 2013E of $3.57 (consensus = $3.58), all else being equal. However, this EPS upside would not begin until 2Q since BWLD had already purchased the bulk of its 1Q wing needs back in Feb.,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
