    • Lifestyle media firm XO Group (XOXO -3.5%) has got a new bull on board as Axiom and analyst Victor Anthony are launching coverage at Buy.
    • Anthony has a price target of $21 on the stock -- 31% upside from last Thursday's close (and higher considering today's market downdraft).
    • The stock rates as one of Axiom's "top SMID cap ideas" for 2016. Anthony thinks that in a rebounding advertising/commerce marketplace, XO Group will see multiple drivers including growth opportunities in local and national online advertising.
    • A survey of local vendors shows high satisfaction, Axiom says, including willingness to take on price hikes.
    • “Coming off an investment cycle and exit of underperforming assets, we see 390bps of adjusted EBITDA margin expansion from 2015 to 2017 and FCF per share growing at a 20% CAGR from 2015 to 2018,” Anthony writes.
