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. " (10/19/2017)
  • 2. B. Riley analysts commented, "We are not making any meaningful changes to our 2017/2018 estimates after already adjusting our model last week and are reiterating our Buy rating and $32.50 price target. Key Points  Q2 Results In‐Line with Pre‐Announcement. Revenues came in at $1.202B compared to RILY/consensus estimates of $1.203B/$1.222B (as some analysts in consensus did not adjust their estimates following the pre‐announcement early last week)." (8/5/2017)
  • 3. Loop Capital analysts commented, "particularly ugly," according to Loop Capital Markets' David Miller. Yet despite a 25 percent plunge in AMC's stock the analyst is parting ways with his bullish stance as he maintains a Buy rating but with a price target lowered from $39 to $33.AMC's guidance implies that AMC underperformed the overall U.S. market, which is "highly unusual" under the company's CEO Adam Aron's leadership, Miller explained. Meanwhile, expenses in the quarter were "out of whack," which may imply that something "very unique" occurred in the quarter on the expense side.AMC's poor performance in the quarter could be in part explained by a $202.6 million impairment charge related to its investment in National Cinemedia, the analyst continued. This is "highly unusual" since AMC's peer Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC) is also an equity investor in Cinemedia but it didn't take a write-down in its earnings report last week.Looking Beyond The Poor Performance"Nevertheless, because AMC's accounting team apparently determined internally that the market value of NCMI declined below its carrying value, the decline is considered 'other than temporary,'" the analyst explained.Last, AMC's guidance for the full-year, including a reduction in cap-ex to $600 million from a prior $700 million to $750 million estimate is in factor what "most investors wanted anyway."Not included in the analyst's research report is a development out of China in which AMC's parent company, Dalian Wanda, is reportedly under investigation by Chinese regulatory bodies, TheStreet noted. The Chinese company could be facing scrutiny related to the funding of its foreign acquisitions.Finally, if AMC's stock trades as low as $15 per share it will imply a "mere" 6.6x 2018 EBITDA on an EV basis, which marks the "lowest we've ever seen any exhibitor entity trade." (8/2/2017)
  • 4. 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)
