Analyst Eric Wold reiterated a Buy rating on AMC Entertainment today and set a price target of $29. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $18.13.

Wold observed:

“After the close on Thursday (11/8), AMC Entertainment Holdings (AMC) reported 3Q18 results that exceeded our and consensus expectations for adjusted EBITDA even with the expected near-term headwinds associated with the launch of (and stronger-than-expected demand for) the Stubs A-List subscription program. With the dynamics of the Stubs A-List program dominating the conference call, we came away increasingly positive that management has a handle on controlling profitability of the plan and is not against adjusting pricing and terms to ensure it does not negatively impact results—while still providing a benefit to movie- goers.”

According to, Wold is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 6.4% and a 48.4% success rate. Wold covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Reading International Inc, Cinemark Holdings Inc, and National Cinemedia.
