KeyBanc Starts Estee Lauder at Buy: What It Means for Mutual Fund Investors

Inside the Analyst Move


According to the firm’s analyst Jason Gere: “EL offers a “best-in-class” portfolio of beauty / personal care brands that possesses strong strategic alignment and consistently targets / reaches out toward key consumer preferences / purchasing trends. Investors should recognize that FY15 represents a transitional year for EL as the impact of its streamlining initiative, unfavorable FX, and softer Chinese conditions are felt, though we see a strong case for a re-acceleration in top- and bottom-line growth into FY16 based upon the strength of EL’s product portfolio and margin progress, with potential for additional upside as its flexibility to deploy capital (i.e., M&A, share repurchases) is exercised. We believe EL’s growth story is deserving / supportive of its premium valuation.”
