Citi, SmartTrend Update Stances on RV Stocks
Wall Street analysts are taking another look at RV stocks as investments.
Citi today (May 21) said it maintains a “Buy” on Thor Industries Inc., but removed it from its Top Picks Live list.
A Citi analyst said, “We continue to rate the stock a Buy with decent stock upside over the next 12 months given decent underlying demand. However, given THO shares are trading near its 2-year high, shares may be pressured in the near-term by a volatile stock market and inclement weather, which may unfavorably impact retail sales and slow down the company’s momentum. Thus we are removing THO from our Top Picks Live! list.”
