Chipotle shares surge more than 10% as profit sweeps past estimates
Shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. soared more than 10% late Wednesday after the fast-casual restaurant chain posted a first-quarter profit above Wall Street expectations, and said its same-store sales rose 2.2%. Chipotle said it had net income of $59.4 million, or $2.13 a share, in the quarter, up from $46.1 million, or $1.60 a share, in the year-earlier period. Sales rose 7% to $1.1 billion, thanks to new-restaurant openings and to a lesser extent to the increase in comparable-restaurant sales, the company said. Chipotle pinned the same-restaurant sales increase to an increase in its average check, including a 4.9% benefit from menu price increases that have been taken hold in almost all of its restaurants in the past year. Food costs were 32.4% of revenue, a decrease of 140 basis points as compared with the first quarter of 2017, the company said. The FactSet consensus was for EPS of $1.57 and sales of $1.1 billion. For 2018, the company is now expecting same-restaurant sales in the low single-digits, and plans 130 to 150 new store openings. Shares have fallen 28% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 11%.
