Following the latest results, Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) 16 analysts are now forecasting revenues of €4.12-B in Y 2020. This would be a 9.5% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Statutory EPS are expected to accumulate 7.8% to €4.02.
Before this weeks earnings report, analysts had been forecasting revenues of €4.07-B and EPS of €4.11 in Y 2020.
So it looks like there’s been a small decline in overall sentiment after the recent results, there has been no major change to revenue estimates, but analysts did make a small dip in their EPS forecasts.
The consensus price target held steady at €155, with analysts voting that their lower forecast earnings are not expected to lead to a lower stock price in the foreseeable future.
The consensus price target just an average of individual analyst targets, so considering that the price target changed, it would be good to see how wide the range of underlying estimates is.
Currently, the most Bullish analyst values Ferrari at €210/share, while the most bearish prices it at €73.60. This is a fairly broad spread of estimates, suggesting that analysts are forecasting a wide range of possible outcomes for the business.
My call is aligned with BAML at $230 (€ 210)/share long term, that is the Top of the range.
