Stock performance

Analysts were expecting DPZ to post EPS of $1.23 on revenues of $614.4 million. Although Domino’s outperformed analysts’ EPS and revenue estimates, the stock price of the company declined due to lower-than-expected SSSG (same-store sales growth) in international markets and a decline in its EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) margin.

The company posted SSSG of 2.6% in international markets, compared with analysts’ estimate of 5.0%, while its EBIT margin fell 0.9%  to 18.0%.

As of July 26, 2017, Domino’s was trading at $186.43, which represents a fall of 12.9% since the announcement of its 2Q17 earnings.

Year-to-date performance

Despite the recent fall in DPZ’s stock price, the company has returned 17.1% since the beginning of 2017. During the same period, the stock price of Yum! Brands (YUM) has risen 17.8%, while Papa John’s (PZZA) has fallen 13.8%.

The iShares Select Dividend ETF (DVY) and the S&P 500 Index (SPX) have returned 4.7% and 10.7%, respectively.
