In a report published Tuesday, Jefferies analyst Mark Wiltamuth initiated coverage on GNC Holdings (NYSE: GNC) with a Buy rating and $68.00 price target.

In the report, Jefferies noted, “We view GNC as a ‘Growth at Reasonable Price' story and it is our top stock pick. We believe the May 2013 rollout of new Gold Card member pricing sets the company up to accelerate to double-digit comps and 23% EPS growth 2013-2014. Current valuation of 15.5x 2014 P/E looks attractive vs. this growth outlook. GNC has the lowest P/E to growth ratio in our universe.”

GNC Holdings closed on Monday at $54.46.
