  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "While the momentum at PLNT is undeniable, the valuation and sentiment seems to leave little room for multiple expansion, suggesting the primary lever for share appreciation is earnings growth. As such, given same-store sales that are likely to decelerate as the store base matures, we believe a better entry point is likely to present itself, be it a function of the earnings power growing into the multiple or a correction of the market and/or the stock." (3/24/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "With 4Q marking two consecutive quarters of +DD comps, PLNT is entering 2017 with momentum. Margins were strong with GM and SG&A both better than consensus, contributing to a bottom-line beat. While EPS guidance for the year is a bit light vs. consensus, we still like this story and consistent execution indicates the business model is truly scalable. Reiterate Buy. $25 PT" (3/2/2017)
