For the first quarter, Domino’s revenues fell short of analysts’ expectations of $849.6 million. The company’s SSSG (same-store sales growth) was lower than analysts’ expectations in domestic and international markets. In the United States, the company posted an SSSG of 3.9%, which fell short of analysts’ expectations of 4.2%. In the international market, the company posted an SSSG of 1.8%—compared to analysts’ expectation of 2.4%. The company’s management stated that its fortressing strategy and aggressive promotions from third-party aggregators had a negative impact on its SSSG in the United States during the quarter.

Despite posting lower-than-expected revenues, the company beat analysts’ EPS estimate of $2.09. The strong first-quarter earnings appear to have led to a rise in the company’s stock price. As of April 24, the company was trading at $283.42—a rise of 4.9% from the previous day’s closing price.

YTD performance

Domino’s has returned 14.3% YTD (year-to-date). During the same period, Yum! Brands (YUM) and Papa John’s (PZZA) have returned 12.4% and 26.9%, respectively. The broader comparative index, the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLY) has returned 21.6% YTD.
