  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, " MIK shares rose just 2% yesterday (S&P 500 fell 0.4%) on the back of betterthan-expected initial 2017 guidance, despite entering the day at a sub-10x P/E multiple. We believe there is a path back to the upper $20's over the next 12-18 months (Exhibit 1), a 30%ish annualized return, and we reiterate our Buy rating as one of our favorite value ideas. We see moderate multiple expansion on modest 2017/2018 EBITDA and EPS growth triggered by the realization that the company has a unique opportunity to drive greater consumer engagement and share gains without sacrificing above-average profit margins over the next five years."
