International Money Express (IMXI) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by Cantor Fitzgerald

International Money Express (NASDAQ:IMXI)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reissued by research analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald in a research note issued on Wednesday. They presently have a $14.00 price objective on the stock. Cantor Fitzgerald’s price target suggests a potential upside of 31.09% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “: We maintain our Overweight rating and lower our 12-month price target to $14 from $15, due to lower than expected revenue growth, leading to lower EBITDA. Quarterly top-line results were above our expectations. IMXI issued 2019 guidance below consensus. We believe the company’s targeted business model, which we view as a competitive advantage, will help it continue to gain market share in Latin America, the fastest-growing US remittance region. We think Intermex can produce mid-20% revenue growth with steady margins with an upward bias, resulting in significant annual earnings growth and an improving balance sheet.””
