  • Maxim Group Starts Coverage on Ross With "Buy" Rating (ROST)

    Maxim Group reported on Tuesday that it has begun coverage of discount retailer, Ross Stores, Inc. (ROST) . The firm has initiated coverage on ROST with a "Buy" rating and $75 price target. This price target suggests a 16% increase from the stock's current price of $63.29. Analyst Rick Snyder commented, "we arrive at our $75.00 price target by applying an 8.0x EV/EBITDA multiple to our 2015 EBITDA estimate of 1997.0. Although we typically apply a 7.0x EV/EBITDA multiple to department stores, we believe that Ross Stores deserves a premium for the following reasons: 1) the outsized growth in the off-price channel in which the company operates; 2) the consistent gains in comps; and 3) growth in sales per square foot, expanding square footage at a CAGR of 7.0% since 2004, including expansion into new markets 4) We believe that Ross could eventually expand to 2,500 stores from its current 1,227 and have modeled annual square footage growth in the mid single digits."
