Jefferies analyst Andy Barish lowered estimates and his price target on Hold-rated Zoe's Kitchen (NYSE: ZOES) to $26.00 (from $33.00) saying while results were better than feared, the environment is not getting any easier.

Barish commented, "EPS in line with Street and above our low-end est., while SSS was slightly below expectations, but better than feared with '16 guide lowered to only 4%-4.5% from 4.5%-5% given Hurricane Matthew. Unit growth remains strong with slightly higher expectations for '16 and +20% for '17, but the environment remains challenging and RLMs will compress further in the near term with higher investments and slower SSS."

The firm cut FY 2016 EPS from $0.12 to $0.04.
