Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 32

Shares of Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ) advanced more than four percent this morning after receiving an upgrade from UBS. The research firm increased its ratings for the pizza restaurant chain from "Neutral" to "Buy."

UBS analyst Dennis Geiger thinks concerns related to weakening demand are "overblown."

(NYSE:DPZ) has a "compelling" growth profile for the long term.

Separately, Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ) also appeared in the second-quarter 2022 investor letter of investment holding firm Pershing Square. Here's what the firm said:

"Since our last update, Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ) 's near-term business performance has shown meaningful improvement, including three-year stacked growth for the second quarter of 17% in the U.S., up 560 basis points sequentially. This improvement was driven by the full impact of its recent pricing actions, operational changes leading to improved staffing and labor utilization, and the return of its signature Boost Week promotion. These positive developments caused a significant recovery in Domino's share price and its valuation increased to more than 28 times our estimate of next twelve months' earnings.  In light of the company's relatively high valuation in the context of a volatile market environment, we decided to exit our investment to raise cash for alternative investment opportunities. We have enormous respect for Domino's and its management team led by Russell Weiner, and we expect the company to continue its long track record of success."
