RBC Capital reiterated an Outperform rating and $49.00 price target on Restaurant Brands International (NYSE: QSR) following the company's 2Q earnings report. QSR reported on EPS beat of $0.41 vs. consensus estimates of $0.35. Management raised 2016 and 2017 EPS estimates from $1.42 and $1.65 to $1.49 and $1.71, respectively, to account for the beat.
Analyst David Palmer commented, "We are raising EPS estimates following the company's 2Q EPS beat and ongoing cost control, partially offset by lower sales growth. While the lion's share of G&A savings may be in the past, we believe supplychain efficiencies and debt refinancing provide sources of EPS upside in the near future."
Shares of Restaurant Brands International closed at $46.31 yesterday.
