Jefferies maintains a 'Hold' on Chuy's Holdings (NASDAQ: CHUY) price target of $19.00.

Analyst, Andy Barish, said, "2Q PF EPS $0.17 vs our/cons $0.14. SSS 1.9% vs our 1.4%/consensus 1.5% but mostly expected. First guide for ’12 EPS $0.54-0.56, above cons on the beat. 2H12 SSS 1-1.5% implies slight decel on macro caution & new units coming into comp base, but "core" base still at ~2.5-3% SSS & new units exceeding targets. We like the earnings visibility but stock has traded up significantly since IPO & we think valuation is fair at current 30x EPS."

FY12 EPS Estimate raised from $0.52 to $0.55.
