Asure (ASUR) Gets a Buy Rating from Canaccord Genuity


In a report released today, David Hynes from Canaccord Genuity maintained a Buy rating on Asure (ASUR), with a price target of $13. The company’s shares opened today at $6.95.

Hynes said:

“We’ve written that ASUR is a “show me” stock, and to that point, there are three things that we’ll be watching in 2019: (1) that management can set realistic financial targets and execute at least to plan, (2) signs of gradual improvement in cash conversion on healthy adjusted EBITDA profits, and (3) additional disclosure to support the narrative that organic growth is in fact in the 5-10% range, with the possibility of acceleration as cross-sell execution spools up. If Asure can check the box on all three, we are quite confident that the stock will be re-rated higher, perhaps meaningfully, from today’s ~2.0x EV/R on C2019E. After all, we continue to believe that Asure has set down a proven and quite logical path toward building a larger and nicely profitable business in the payroll/HCM space.”

According to TipRanks.com, Hynes is a top 100 analyst with an average return of 31.8% and a 77.8% success rate. Hynes covers the Technology sector, focusing on stocks such as Aspen Technology, Q2 Holdings Inc, and Veeva Systems.
