Oppenheimer Gives a Buy Rating to Endurance International

By Jason Carr

In a report released today, Jason Helfstein from Oppenheimer reiterated a Buy rating on Endurance International (NASDAQ: EIGI), with a price target of $12. The company’s shares opened today at $9.20.

Helfstein noted:

“Endurance reported better 4Q:16 results, while 2017 guidance was in line. The company has moved past the “gateway product” error, and is successfully refocusing on core domain competencies. With low-quality subs churning off the platform, management expects APRU will be a more material driver in 2017. Focus on proven brands: BlueHost for WordPress users, HostGator for digital influencers & iPage for low-cost solution. Increasing international focus, as 10% of CTCT traffic from APAC & India, and next step is localizing brand to increase conversion. Competition is strong with GDDY (Hosting/Presence) & Wix (Website Builder) innovating on product. However, we see shares as cheap, trading at 8x ’17E FCF/share.”
