Dunkin' stock rises as same-store sales show improvement over the past month
Shares of Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. rose 1.7% in premarket trading Wednesday after the coffee and ice cream seller provided a mid-quarter sales update, which showed improvement over the last month in its U.S. Dunkin' and Baskin-Robbins sales, helped by strength in drive-thru sales and a jump in midday sales. For the eight weeks ended May 23, same-store sales for open Dunkin' U.S. stores fell 23%, but improved to a decline of 15% for the week ended May 23 from a drop of 25% for the week ended April 25. The company said the improvement was driven by strong sales at drive-thru stores, double-digit percentage year-over-year same-store sales growth during the 11 a.m to 2 p.m. time period and increased sales through the Dunkin' app, delivery and curbside. For open Baskin-Robbins U.S. stores, quarter-to-date same-store sales fell 10.5%, with sales improving to flat for the week ended May 23 from down 10% for the week ended April 25. AS of May 23, about 650 of 9,637 Dunkin' U.S. stores were closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

U.S. stock-index futures Wednesday morning added to solid gains after a private-sector labor-market report came in much cooler than expected. Data from Automatic Data Processing Inc. showed that 2.76 million jobs were lost in May, but that figure was far weaker than consensus expectations for a loss of jobs 8.663 million, compared with April's tally for a loss of 20.236 million. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 230 points, or 0.9%, at 25,930, those for the S&P 500 index were up 0.6% at 3,096, while Nasdaq-100 futures were gaining 0.4% at 9,685. The ADP data come ahead of U.S. unemployment figures in the nonfarm private sector that will disclosed on Friday, and will likely show that unemployment in the U.S. for May has approached 19% amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
