Michaels Companies (MIK) Gets a Hold Rating from Wells Fargo

In a report released yesterday, Zachary Fadem from Wells Fargo maintained a Hold rating on Michaels Companies (MIK), with a price target of $17. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $16.32, close to its 52-week low of $14.82.

Fadem commented:

“We believe this outlook shows that MIK still has work left to drive sustainable comp growth (guide flat at midpoint), and recent cost efforts (sourcing, fulfillment, etc.) have yet to be sufficient enough to offset ongoing distribution headwinds. While encouraging Q3 results are a step in the right direction, we remain on the sidelines, as industry trends remain stagnant, traffic has been negative for 3 straight quarters, and margins continue to deteriorate. Reiterate Market Perform.”

According to TipRanks.com, Fadem is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 7.0% and a 57.1% success rate. Fadem covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as National Vision Holdings Inc, Floor & Decor Holdings Inc, and Advance Auto Parts.
