Jack in the Box (NASDAQ: JACK) reported mixed results for its second quarter of 2020. While non-GAAP EPS of $0.50 didn’t meet Wall Street’s projected EPS of $0.65, the revenue of $216 million surpassed the market’s target of $210.76 million. JACK stock dropped about 7% in the after-market session.

The company will continue to monitor and revisit its capital allocation policies throughout the third quarter with the goal of reinstating dividends and share repurchases once it has more clarity around the scope and duration of the disruption caused by COVID-19.
