Analysts See 15% Gains Ahead For The Holdings of RPV
By Dividend Channel Staff, Monday, April 16, 9:13 AM ET
Looking at the underlying holdings of the ETFs in our coverage universe at ETF Channel, we have compared the trading price of each holding against the average analyst 12-month forward target price, and computed the weighted average implied analyst target price for the ETF itself. For the PowerShares S&P 500® Pure Value Portfolio ETF (NYSE:RPV), we found that the implied analyst target price for the ETF based upon its underlying holdings is $74.74 per unit.
With RPV trading at a recent price near $65.06 per unit, that means that analysts see 14.87% upside for this ETF looking through to the average analyst targets of the underlying holdings. Three of RPV's underlying holdings with notable upside to their analyst target prices are Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. (NYSE:JEC), Coty, Inc. (NYSE:COTY), and Unum Group (NYSE:UNM). Although JEC has traded at a recent price of $59.27/share, the average analyst target is 22.41% higher at $72.56/share. Similarly, COTY has 18.63% upside from the recent share price of $17.66 if the average analyst target price of $20.95/share is reached, and analysts on average are expecting UNM to reach a target price of $56.22/share, which is 18.34% above the recent price of $47.51. Below is a twelve month price history chart comparing the stock performance of JEC, COTY, and UNM:
Below is a summary table of the current analyst target prices discussed above:
|Name ||Symbol ||Recent Price ||Avg. Analyst 12-Mo. Target ||% Upside to Target|
|PowerShares S&P 500® Pure Value Portfolio ETF ||RPV ||$65.06 ||$74.74 ||14.87%|
|Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. ||JEC ||$59.27 ||$72.56 ||22.41%|
|Coty, Inc. ||COTY ||$17.66 ||$20.95 ||18.63%|
|Unum Group ||UNM ||$47.51 ||$56.22 ||18.34%|
Are analysts justified in these targets, or overly optimistic about where these stocks will be trading 12 months from now? Do the analysts have a valid justification for their targets, or are they behind the curve on recent company and industry developments? A high price target relative to a stock's trading price can reflect optimism about the future, but can also be a precursor to target price downgrades if the targets were a relic of the past. These are questions that require further investor research.
