Guggenheim analyst Gregory Francfort initiates coverage on Wendy's (NASDAQ: WEN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $26.00.

The analyst comments "Our Buy rating is premised on too much pessimism on the sustainability of WEN market share gains. Wendy’s shares pre-Covid traded in a $20-$24 range and the pandemic has helped support top-line market share gains for the brand (low double digit current two-year comps). The current share price of $23 per share suggests investors are overlooking all sustainability of the past 18 months’ success, creating an opportunity for investors to get constructive on the stock at these levels."
