Analysts’ target for Ferrari falls

Of the 11 Reuters-surveyed analysts covering Ferrari, 45% recommend “buy,” and 55% recommend “hold.” About a month ago, 9% of analysts recommended “sell” for RACE. Their 12-month consensus target price for Ferrari stock is $140.03, which is 29.3% higher than its market price of $108.33 and implies potential despite the recent sell-off in Ferrari stock amid market turmoil. However, analysts’ target price has fallen from $145.52 a month ago.

Recent fundamental updates

In the third quarter, RACE’s adjusted earnings rose ~4% YoY (year-over-year), and its revenue rose 0.3% YoY with the help of an 11% YoY jump in its global shipments offset by currency movements. Its adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 33.2% from 31.8% YoY and 31.9% sequentially. In the next part, we’ll look at analysts’ ratings for Harley-Davidson (HOG) stock this month.
