In a report published Thursday, Deutsche Bank analyst George Hill initiated coverage on Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) with a Buy rating and $7.00 price target.

In the report, Deutsche Bank noted, “We are initiating coverage of Rite Aid with a Buy rating. We believe that Rite Aid should be able to maintain its recent improvement in profitability as store remodels, SG&A cost initiatives, and lower interest expense all help to offset pharmacy reimbursement pressures. We also see a number of strategic actions that Rite Aid could take that would drive profitability ahead of our current forecasts.”

Rite Aid closed on Wednesday at $5.10.
