Imperial Capital Offers Best Ideas In Equity Research: American Airlines, Intel And More


Analysts at Imperial Capital published a note titled ‘Best Ideas In Equity Research.’

Within the note, analysts highlight nine companies considered to offer the most upside potential.

American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ: AAL) Outperform rating; $58 price target. Bob McAdoo stated, "We believe earnings growth will continue to come from both structural changes to legacy AMR as well as traditional merger cost and market synergies, which will begin to take effect over the next several quarters."

Ascent Capital Group Inc (NASDAQ: ASCMA) Outperform rating; $94 price target. Jeff Kessler stated, "We believe that Ascent remains fundamentally strong and is not seeing any slowdown as a result of cable/telcos entering the Security space."

Boulder Brands Inc (NASDAQ: BDBD) Outperform rating; $16 price target. Mitchell Pinheiro stated, “We are maintaining our view that BDBD has built an attractive portfolio of cross-channel and cross-category brands that would be attractive to the larger, slower growing packaged food companies that are looking to replace growth in their declining brands.”

Covanta Holding Corp (NYSE: CVA) Outperform rating; $24 price target. Scott Levine stated, “CVA is the only “pure play” energy from waste (Efw) company in the U.S. with a unique business model that is both cash generative and highly contracted in nature.”

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) Outperform rating; $37 price target. Ashok Kumar stated, “Improving corporate PC demand, Data Center strength from the Grantley server product cycle, and long- term foundry share gains could lead to multiple expansion.”

Performance Sports Group (TSE: PSG) Outperform rating; $21 price target. John O’Neil writes, “ We believe PSG, which has leading shares in several sports equipment categories, has multiple growth opportunities which will result in accelerating sales, earnings and free cash flow.”

Radware Ltd. (NASDAQ: RDWR) Outperform rating; $24 price target. Michael Kim finds, “RDWR is achieving stronger deployments of its application security solutions, driven by escalating attacks on organizations’ data centers and applications, and is capitalizing on larger enterprise opportunities.”

Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN) Outperform rating; $50 price target. Bob Christensen noted, “As a low-cost producer, SWN is one of the few U.S. E&P companies that has the potential to flourish in a low $4.00/Mcf U.S. natural gas price environment, which is likely over the next few years.”

Synergy Resources Corp (NYSE: SYRG) Outperform rating; $15 price target. Kim Pacanovsky declared, “We believe that SYRG is among the best positioned companies to weather the current weak commodity pricing environment among our small cap E&P universe.”
