WWW Remains Expensive, Says Sterne Agee; Reiterates Underperform
In a research report issued today, Sterne Agee analyst Sam Poser reiterated an Underperform rating on Wolverine World Wide (NYSE:WWW) with a $23 price target.
Poser commented: “Trends in Sperry and Merrell have not improved since WWW provided guidance on 7/15. Reducing 4Q14 estimates due to FX pressures. The company’s 2018 revenue expectations need to be reduced from $4.1B to sub $3.5B due to recent lackluster performance for both Merrell & Sperry. 2018 EPS target may be achieved. The stock remains expensive given modest revenue growth and debt levels.”
