By Jason Carr

In a report released today, Eric Wold from B.Riley FBR reiterated a Buy rating on Cinemark Holdings Inc (CNKResearch Report), with a price target of $46.50. The company’s shares opened today at $41.06.

Wold observed:

“Before the open on Holdings (CNK) reported 2Q19 results that came in well ahead of our recently reduced expectations as box office outperformance for the domestic circuit combined with impressive concessions per cap gains and a notable turnaround for the Latin American circuit (with the highest level of attendance since the Mexican circuit was sold). Heading into what is expected to be a stronger box office environment for 2H19 and heading into early 2020, we believe the gains in Movie Club membership positions CNK well to outperform and gain additional market share with movie-goers. As the company continues to pare back on capital spending as the theater enhancement strategy is well past its peak, we would also expect the improving free cash flow trends to drive stronger capital returns to shareholders.”
