  • Goldman Sachs Maintains "Neutral" Rating on Cedar Fair Following Investor Day (FUN)

    Following an investor investor day with Cedar Fair, L.P. (FUN) , analysts at Goldman Sachs reiterated their "Neutral" rating on the amusement park operator on Friday, as the company's first half of 2013 revenues have been slightly below previous estimates. The analysts see shares of FUN reaching $43, which suggests a 4% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $41.40. A Goldman Sachs analyst noted, “On 6/27, Cedar Fair held an investor day at their flagship park, Cedar Point. The tone of the day was upbeat. While the focus was mainly on the long-term opportunity and direction of the company, FUN also provided year-to-date (through June 23) revenue, attendance and per cap figures. Total revenue is up 5.0%, slightly below GS 1H13 revenue forecast of up 5.7% but above consensus of up 3.8%. Attendance is up 1% above GS forecast of up 0.1% but in-park guest per cap of +4% was below our forecast of 5.7%. Management cautioned though that thus far, we are only roughly 37% of operating days and 25% of budgeted attendance. They indicated that same park attendance, adjusting for the park they sold and two parks now combined, would actually be up slightly above 1%.” Cedar Fair shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 23.77% year-to-date.
