By Ryan Adsit

Altius Minerals (TSX: ALS), the Materials sector company was revisited on May 17, and remains undervalued for at least one analyst on the street. On May 17, analyst Carey MacRury gave a Buy rating to ALS and set a C$16.50 price target.

MacRury wrote:

“We expect the higher revenue to be driven by higher potash volumes from PotashCorp’s Rocanville operation, a full year run rate from the Chapada copper stream, and higher y/y commodity prices. We have revised our forecasts to reflect the Q4/17 royalty revenue and $25 million in preferred securities. We are now forecasting FY18 EBITDA of $42.7 million ($43.7 million previously).”
