B. Riley set a $47.00 price objective on Cinemark Holdings Inc (NYSE:CNK) in a research note published on Wednesday morning. The brokerage currently has a buy rating on the stock.

“We are reiterating our Buy rating on GRPN and increasing our PT from $5.50 to $6.30 as we believe the new ad campaign is resonating with existing/new customers, which should drive engagement, customer adds and unit economics. With annualized North American Gross Profit (GP) per customer 12% below peak levels and International ~45% below NA levels, we believe the opportunity is in growing GP to previous peaks and potentially beyond with improved execution. While this growth will be driven by increased ad spend, the potential leverage is significant with Contribution Profit (CP) in NA inflecting +3% Y/Y in 2Q17 and in International declining -2% Y/Y (vs. -20% in 1Q17).”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
