Suntrust Downgrades Vistaprint from Buy to Neutral

Vistaprint (NASDAQ: VPRT) is a Venlo, Netherlands based company that supplies printed and promotional material and marketing services to businesses and consumers.

A Financial Expert’s Opinion

SunTrust analyst Robert Peck recently downgraded his rating for Vistaprint from Buy to Neutral on November 10th, but raised his price target from $63 to $67. The downgrade came after shares of Vistaprint surpassed the analyst’s original price target and reached his new price target.

Peck explained, “While the company recently reported a slight beat for F1Q15 (September), VPRT shares have appreciated 21% and outperformed the peer group by ~21 points over the past month. We think investors have reassessed the story recently and investor sentiment has improved, with the stock having outperformed the Nasdaq by 17/33/54 points over the past 1/3/6 months. Thus at current levels we view valuation as more appropriate and risk/reward more balanced, warranting a Neutral-rating.”

Peck mentioned that he would upgrade his rating for Vistaprint again on a pullback or if the stock showed evidence towards the progression of a turnaround.
