    • While Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) may have grabbed some headlines this week for its ambitious goals with autonomous driving (SAE level 5), the technology is being widely discussed across industries as a potential future reality.
    • At a real estate conference in New York this week, a panel member called autonomous vehicles the biggest tech news concerning real estate in the last ten years. Some see a future reversal of urbanization trends in a development that could have significant investment implications.
    • City planners and architects are already thinking of next-gen design. A paper titled "Beyond Google's Cute Car" (.pdf version) is a good example of how cities are being reimagined.
    • Then there's this from the man who designed the 2015 Ford Mustang. "The next 10 years in this business is going to be the biggest change and challenge since the turn of the last century when cars took over for horses," said Ford design chief Moray Callum. Ford (NYSE:F) aims to have a high-volume, fully autonomous SAE level 4-capable vehicle in commercial operation in 2021.
    • Self-driving car development is a topic of discussion on FedEx (NYSE:FDX), UPS (NYSE:UPS), Lyft (Private:LYFT), Uber (Private:UBER), Hertz Global (NYSE:HTZ), Google (GOOGL, GOOG), Avis Budget (NASDAQ:CAR), Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). Earnings season is just heating up, but a host of companies -- including OTCPK:TMOAF, OTCPK:DDAIF, OTCPK:VOLVY, MXIM, CPRT,  WBC, GNTX  and XLNX -- have already talked up the trend on their conference calls. GM reports earnings this week and will update on any self-driving Chevy Bolt plans.
    • Looking ahead, insurance companies, chipmakers, truckers and cybersecurity firms (NYSEARCA:HACK) will be firmly in the self-driving conversation.
    • So who has a profitable trade idea off of the evolution of cars?

    • Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ) jumped to a 52-week high on the way to close nearly 5% higher today, after reporting a 13% increase in Q3 U.S. sales from a year earlier, far outpacing rival Pizza Hut (NYSE:YUM) and bucking the broader restaurant industry trend of weakening sales.
    • For the first time in the company's history, DPZ is bringing in more sales through smartphones, watches, virtual assistants and other digital channels than from diners walking into stores or phoning in orders; BofA Merrill estimates 55% of its sales were digital in Q3, vs. just 20% for the restaurant industry.
    • Some Wall Street analysts have started to assign DPZ tech-style stock price targets based on the rapid growth of its digital sales, and Bloomberg's Shelly Banjo says 63% of analysts covering the company have raised their price targets in the past month.

    • The sluggish trend continues in the restaurant sector with same-store sales down 0.6% in August, according to the latest read from Black Box Intelligence.
    • Same-store traffic was 2.7% lower Y/Y during the month to improve on the 3.9% drop recorded in July. Average guest check across the industry was up 2.3% to help offset for some of the loss of customers.
    • Another weak month in the Southwest (sales -5%, traffic -7%) doesn't bode well for chains with a high concentration of stores in Texas.
    • Though the broad read from analysts is that consumer spending is still tight in the U.S., there are also some concerns that restaurant chains are having trouble building brand loyalty with millennials giving their business to independent eateries.

    • There's more confirmation that consumers are doing the heavy lifting in the U.S. to prop up GDP while business investment falls short.
    • "Consumer confidence improved in August to its highest level in nearly a year, after a marginal decline in July," noted The Conference Board director Lynn Franco.
    • Some analysts think the slowdown in auto sales is freeing up some spending in other areas, although certain sectors that rely on foot traffic (restaurants, department stores) aren't necessarily seeing the bounce.
    • Companies that line up neatly with millennial trends seem to be the ones making the outrageous gains in the retail sector. Ulta Salon (NASDAQ:ULTA), Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), Burlington Stores (NYSE:BURL), and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) come to mind -- with the four generating returns ranging from 40% to 60% over the last year.

    • According to industry estimates, the rules could generate more than $82B for the U.S. economy and create more than 100K new jobs over the next decade.

    • A major announcement from Ford that it will develop a 100% autonomous vehicle in 2021 could have far-reaching implications in a variety of sectors.
    • “The first application of the fully autonomous vehicle will be commercial applications, whether it’s ride-hailing or parcel delivery,” Ford CEO Mark Fields told Recode. Companies that could be eyeing the implication of purchasing self-driving car fleets include FedEx (NYSE:FDX), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), UPS (NYSE:UPS), Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), and Papa John's International (NASDAQ:PZZA).
    • There's also relevance on Ford's big bet on autonomy for Avis Budget Group (NASDAQ:CAR) and Hertz (NYSE:HTZ).
    • The trucking and shipping sectors (ARCB, KNX, MRTN, CGI, YRCW, HTLD, UACL, SWFT) will also be monitoring how autonomous vehicle technology fits into the future.

    • Donald Trump said he would like to raise the federal minimum wage to $10 per hour. The surprising disclosure came at a press conference yesterday in Florida, although he seemed to walk it back a bit later in the day.
    • Hillary Clinton supports a $12 per hour national level, but is open to state and cities that go higher with the minimum wage.
    • A higher federal minimum wage could pressure restaurant chains operating in states where the lowest pay scale in nearer to the $7.25/hour floor.

    • A harsh view on the restaurant sector from Stifel Nicolaus is based in part on its view that a U.S. recession could occur within nine months. The note from the firm also warns on a loss of pricing power by restaurant operators.
    • Early Q2 reporters Starbucks, McDonald's (MCD -3.9%), and Chipotle (CMG -1.8%) already set a negative tone for the sector by missing estimates, but Stifel's downgrade on 11 different restaurant chains is taking the gloom to a new level.
    • 50 of the 55 publicly-traded restaurant stocks with a market cap of over $50M are in negative territory today. Leading decliners are Noodles (NDLS -17.7%), Chuy's Holdings (CHUY -9.3%), BJ's Restaurants (BJRI -6.2%), Sonic (SONC -3.8%), Bojangles (BOJA -3%), Dave & Buster's Entertainment (PLAY -3.6%), and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB -7%).
    • Investors are betting that pizza delivery chains won't be impacted by the general trend of sluggish traffic. Both Domino's Pizza (DPZ -0.6%) and Papa John's International (PZZA -1.7%) are up over 10% over the last few weeks.

    • 7-Eleven and drone delivery service upstart Flirtey announce that they have completed the first fully autonomous drone delivery to a customer's residence. The pair says the development will help advance research toward integrating drones into the National Airspace System.
    • The drone delivery in the Reno area, which marked the first time a U.S. customer has received a package to their home via drone, included Slurpee drinks, a chicken sandwich, donuts, hot coffee, and candy.
    • Looking ahead, the two companies have plans to expand drone delivery tests and work closely together, according to a top 7-Eleven exec.
    • Drone watch: While there's some speculation on the ways that companies such as Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), Walgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA), and Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ) could use drone delivery, many industry watchers think emergency conditions (flood/forest fire/earthquake/medical) or niche situations (oil rigs/barrier islands/inaccessible roads) are the most likely scenarios for widespread drone action. Earlier this year, an article in the MIT Technology Review speculated that an intermediary dropping off point out such as the local Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) store could be utilized instead of working out all the problems of home delivery.
