Marcus Corp (MCS) Gets a Hold Rating from B.Riley FBR

In a report released today, Eric Wold from B.Riley FBR maintained a Hold rating on Marcus Corp (MCSResearch Report), with a price target of $41. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $41.04.

Wold commented:

“The Marcus Corporation (MCS) is scheduled to report 1Q19 results before the open on Thursday, 4/25, with a conference call at 11:00am ET. Although 1Q19 results were adversely impacted by the combination of weak box office trends (with results slightly worse than our original projection), the closure/renovation of the Saint Kate Arts Hotel, and the initial integration of the Movie Tavern acquisition, we remain positive on the full-year outlook with an expectation for a new domestic box office record, the benefits of the re-branded hotel in Milwaukee, the flow-through of the Movie Tavern circuit during stronger box office quarters—and now the potential for less of a competitive impact in the Milwaukee hotel market than we originally feared. Nevertheless, due solely to a relatively fair valuation at current levels, we are maintaining our Neutral rating and $41 PT.”

According to, Wold ‘s ranking currently consits of no stars on a 0-5 ranking scale, with an average return of -4.4% and a 40.1% success rate. Wold covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Reading International Inc, Cinemark Holdings Inc, and National Cinemedia.

Currently, the analyst consensus on Marcus Corp is a Moderate Buy with an average price target of $45.
