- In-theater ad firm National CineMedia (NASDAQ:NCMI) finished up 6% today, charging off an earnings report where it noted an upbeat outlook for Q2 and the rest of 2015.
- FBR & Co. upgraded the stock to Outperform, with a price target to $17.50: "Maintenance of a modicum of 2015 momentum into 2016, which appears likely, would argue for additional revenue growth that should go straight into dividend hikes that fuel the equity."
- Benchmark raised its price target on the shares, to $17.31 from $16.81, and maintained a Buy rating. Analyst Mike Hickey reeled off the positives: "Favorable consideration is factored from a significant valuation reset, stabilized CPMs, elevated yield, strong guidance, optimism over forward box office growth and a strong executive team," before noting offsets including ad softness and mobile competition.
- Shares closed today at $15.80 and the company features a forward dividend yield of 5.9%. It's owned by theater circuits Regal, AMC and Cinemark along with smaller partners.
