Domino's Pizza Downgraded to Equalweight From Overweight by Morgan Stanley Due to Valuation; Price Target Cut to $535 From $541

8:50AM ET 1/14/2022 MT Newswires
Domino's Pizza (DPZ) received an investment rating downgrade Friday to equalweight from overweight from Morgan Stanley, which cited valuation for the move, saying the pizza company has "a superior business model" but that it is "hard to argue for further multiple expansion."

Morgan Stanley cut its price target on the stock to $535 per share, down from $541. The stock closed Thursday's session at $481.40 and slipped 2.3% in recent Friday pre-market trading to $470.

"This is largely a valuation call," Morgan Stanley analysts John Glass, Brian Harbour and Raghav Nayar said in a Friday note to clients. They noted the stock was the 47% up in 2021, the best performer in their coverage, but is "now presenting more limited upside" to the firm's price target on the stock.

"While DPZ still embodies many of the characteristics of a great long-term growth compounder, we see limited justification for further multiple expansion, especially as DPZ's sales growth will likely [begin] to normalize after experiencing substantial COVID (and stimulus) benefits" in 2020 and 2021, the analysts added.

Domino's Pizza has an average investment rating of outperform among analysts polled by Capital IQ, with price targets ranging from $416 to $642.
