In a report published Tuesday, Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy initiated coverage on Prestige Brands Holdings (NYSE: PBH) with a Hold rating and $36.00 price target.

In the report, Jefferies noted, “We are initiating coverage of PBH with a Hold rating and $36 price target. Through transformative M&A, PBH is now uniquely positioned as a pure-play in the attractive (and consolidating) OTC industry. However, the stock has significantly re-rated over the LTM and we expect PBH to face meaningful competitive headwinds in the near-term, which should provide investors with a better entry point into an attractive long-term story.”

Prestige Brands Holdings closed on Monday at $33.26.
