Eric Gonzalez analyst at KeyBanc said he believes that 2018 was a fundamental year of foundations for Dunkin, and he expects breakfast sales to have boosted the companies fourth-quarter sales. Given McDonald’s well-publicized/accelerating share losses at breakfast and the competitive overlap between the two brands, we wonder to what extent Dunkin’ has been a beneficiary of McDonald’s struggles, Gonzalez wrote in a note last week.

Analysts predict an expected earnings report of $0.61 cents per share with $329.88 million USD in revenue, with same-store sales expected to have grown over 3%.

Although analysts are not expecting terrible results for Yum Brands, predictions are not anywhere near as positive as they are for Dunkin. Tower has estimated that Yums global same-store sales will be above predicted for their fourth quarter. The average consensus estimates for global same-store sales are set for around the 2.5% growth. Taco Bell and KFC are as expected to have seen the largest sales growth during the fourth quarter, while tower has mentioned he believes Pizza hit will continue to trail behind

Analysts are predicting Yum to report earnings of $0.97 per share with an underwhelming $1.59 billion in revenue. Same-store sales are estimated to show a growth of 2.5% over the quarter.
