Goldman Sachs downgraded Wendy's (NASDAQ: WEN) from Conviction Buy to Buy with a price target of $11.00 (from $12.50). Analyst Karen Holthouse remains bullish on the stock but pointed out limited comp visibility.

"We continue to see a compelling longer-term cash flow story for WEN, with refranchising, upside to property revenues, and the potential for additional G&A cuts offering a cushion against potentially weaker comp trends; however, in the current environment, we see execution risk and the potential for additional FY16 comp guidance reductions. As a result, we remove shares from the CL but maintain our Buy rating," said Holthouse.
