KeyBanc initiates coverage on Panera Bread (NASDAQ: PNRA) with a Buy. PT $175.00.

Analyst, Christopher O'Cull, said, "Consistent with our favorable bias toward dominant brands with relevant niches, we believe Panera is well positioned to sustain 20% annual EPS growth. We expect the growth to come from expanding system units by 8% annually (9-10% company and 6-7% franchise), 3-4% SRS gains and 30-60 bps margin expansion from sales leverage."
