Maxim Group Sticks to Their Hold Rating for Castle Brands (ROX)


Maxim Group analyst Alexander Scharf maintained a Hold rating on Castle Brands (ROX) today. The company’s shares closed on Friday at $0.83, close to its 52-week low of $0.74.

Scharf said:

“On Friday, 2/8, post-close ROX reported weaker-than-expected F3Q19 (Dec) results due to single-digit revenue declines for whiskey and ginger beer. Margins were also compressed due to lower volume, cheaper product mix, and non-recurring professional fees. The $2M expansion of ROX’s credit facility should support Jefferson’s growth, but additional high-interest floating rate debt is an incremental concern. Lowering revenue estimates; maintain Hold.”

Castle Brands has an analyst consensus of Moderate Buy, with a price target consensus of $1.75.
