What are analysts saying about AMC Entertainment Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AMC Entertainment Holdings stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc., operates as a theatrical exhibition company primarily in the United States and internationally. It owned or interests in theatres and screens. AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. is based in Leawood, Kansas. " (7/11/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On Wednesday evening, April 19, AMC sort of preannounced 1Q17, saying its adj. EBITDA (in a noisy, transitional quarter that was the first full period with the recently acquired Odeon and Carmike chains and had four days of the Nordic chain acquired on 3/28) topped the FactSet consensus of $214M. AMC was not more specific, so we do not know how much it topped the EBITDA consensus. For now, we see no reason to change our $276M 1Q17 estimate. AMC also detailed several below-the-line items (D&A, interest, M&A cost, average shares) that on balance were somewhat dilutive versus our view of EPS but accretive versus our view of FCF/share. Our $37 PT is based on an SOTP that is focused on EBITDA multiples, so nothing disclosed here affects our PT, and on balance, the statement should be helpful for the equity, as it supports the argument for a northward bias to the consensus for core EBITDA. We estimate 2017 adj. EBITDA of $952M." (4/21/2017)
  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "AMC Entertainment (AMC) hosted an Investor Day in San Francisco on Thursday (after hosting similar ones in Chicago and NYC) and we came away increasingly confident in AMC being our favorite pure play exhibitor name. We believe AMC has the potential to meaningfully outperform its peers over the next 12-18 months on the heels of the theater remodel program, contributions from three major acquisitions (with global diversification) and potential rollout of dynamic/variable ticket pricing. We believe there is an attractive set-up for both AMC EBITDA growth and stock performance heading into the impressive 2017/2018 film slates that should drive strengthening margins and post-merger deleveraging ' all of which should lead to valuation multiple expansion. With AMC shares' EBITDA multiple remaining well below the post-IPO peak reached in early 2015, we recommend adding to positions at current levels with an unchanged price target of $47.50." (3/24/2017)
  • 4. Wedbush analysts commented, "Maintaing our OUTPERFORM rating and lowering our price target to $40 from $41... we assume AMC will capitalize on its many upgrade opportunities throughout its worldwide circuit, and capture cost synergies with Carmike over the upcoming two years. We will refine our estimates and price target following the closing of the Nordic Cinema acquisition." (3/20/2017)
