Celsius Holdings Inc (CELH) Gets a Buy Rating from B.Riley FBR

B.Riley FBR analyst Jeff Van Sinderen maintained a Buy rating on Celsius Holdings Inc (CELH) today and set a price target of $7. The company’s shares opened today at $4.03.

Van Sinderen observed:

“CELH reported 3Q results AMC on 11/8 with sales that substantially exceeded and EBITDA/ EPS that came in below, due largely to investment to grow China (pro forma EBITDA doubled to positive $2.2M, excluding investment in Kong distributor). Sales grew 54% in 1Q while up 32% for 1H. Domestic revenue grew 92% to $11.4M, which was roughly what we were modeling for the company’s total revenue. Demand for the company’s product remains strong. GM came in at 41.5% (above our estimate of 40.5%), impacted by slotting fees and similar costs in international. The Nordics continued to normalize (sell-throughs remained positive) in the wake of recent inventory rebalancing, along with disruption from new flavors that required label changes.”

According to, Sinderen is a 1-star analyst with an average return of -0.7% and a 42.6% success rate. Sinderen covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Tuesday Morning, Tilly’s Inc, and Kirkland’s.
