Coffee and doughnuts seller Dunkin Brands Group Inc (DNKN) on Tuesday caught a big downgrade from analysts at JP Morgan.
The firm cut its rating on DNKN from “Overweight” to “Neutral” with a $33 price target. That target suggests a 7% downside to the stock’s Monday closing price of $35.39.
A JP Morgan analyst commented, “Reflective of extremely strong outperformance, we are downgrading Dunkin’ Brands to Neutral. The stock is up ~90% since the pricing of its IPO in July 2011, up ~45% YTD, and is just 4% off its recent high, in contrast to peers MCD, CMG, DPZ, YUM and SBUX, which are down 10-15% from their 52-week highs.”
Dunkin Brands shares fell 66 cents, or -1.9%, in Tuesday morning trading.
