Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) Q2 Earnings & Revenues Beat Estimates

Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. (DNKN - Free Report) operates through its Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins brands that serve hot and cold coffee and baked goods, as well as hard-serve ice cream.

Going forward, the company’s comps should gain from menu innovation and unit expansion plans. Moreover, various sales and digital initiatives undertaken by the company bode well. Further, the company’s multi-year partnership with Keurig Green Mountain and J.M. Smucker, to manufacture, market, distribute and sell Dunkin' K-Cup pods to retailers in the United States should continue to aid Dunkin Brands’ top line. The company’s focus on expanding its beverage portfolio also provides it with a great growth opportunity.

However, challenging comps growth in international markets at both its divisions is a potent headwind. Further, immense competition in the breakfast segment and lower-than-expected sale in ice-cream products could hurt the company’s top line in the near term.

Investors should note that the consensus estimate for DNKN has gone slightly up over the last 30 days. Meanwhile, DNKN’s earnings have been strong over the past few quarters. In fact, the company posted positive earnings surprises in three of the last four quarters, with an average beat of 5.2%.
