Line Corp (LN) Receives a Buy from Jefferies

By Jason Carr

Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett maintained a Buy rating on Line Corp (LNResearch Report) today. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $34.51.

Bennett noted:

“We attended BAT’s CMD yesterday. We’d suggested prior to the event that what was needed was much more granularity on future expectations, specifically RRP. After two previous CMD/briefings that were lacking in this regard, encouragingly this is what we got. With its RRP portfolio looking in good shape and a growth model that looks easily in reach, and therefore deserving of a more premium multiple, we hope we now see a period of sustained re-rating.”

According to, Bennett is a 1-star analyst with an average return of -1.0% and a 41.0% success rate. Bennett covers the Healthcare sector, focusing on stocks such as The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd, Aurora Cannabis Inc, and Tilray Inc.
