  • Nomura Securities Starts Coverage of The Buckle at "Neutral" (BKE)

    Nomura Securities analysts initiated coverage on The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) early on Monday, giving the specialty retailer a tepid rating because they believe its shares are currently fairly valued. The analysts rate BKE as "Neutral" and see shares reaching $50. This price target suggests a 3% downside to the stock's Friday closing price of $51.69. Nomura Securities analyst Simeon Siegel commented, "We believe The Buckle's (BKE) strong third-party offerings (~66% of sales) and lower-priced, higher-margin private label goods (~34% of sales) help drive consistent comp growth. We believe fears of unsustainable margins have driven consistent skepticism for BKE. At 18.6%, BKE currently has one of the highest short interest as a percentage of float ratios in our coverage universe. Despite BKE's consistency, we are on the sidelines as LSD comps, LSD square-footage growth and industry-leading margin levels translate to only 13% EPS growth over the next three years. We believe the shares are fairly valued. We are projecting EPS of $3.49/$3.67 in FY13E/FY14E versus the Street at $3.53/$3.66. Our target price of $50 is based on 13–14x our FY14 estimate versus the peer group average 14x multiple and BKE’s historical average of 14x." Buckle shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 15.79% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Buckle (BKE) offer a dividend yield of 1.55% based on Friday's closing price of $51.69 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 80 cents per share. The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
