" (11/14/2018)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We attribute recent weakness in BPI’s shares to profit taking, given its strong performance and no change in its fundamental or outlook. 3.5x our 2018 and 2019 EBITDA estimates (pre conversion), a significant discount to the peer group average of 10.3x/8.6x, we are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating. Our 12‐month price target of $15, which represents nearly 50% upside from current levels, will likely move to $20 or more, once the conversion is complete, given the higher growth and earnings assumptions."
