Tivity Health (TVTY) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by Cantor Fitzgerald

Tivity Health (NASDAQ:TVTY)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reissued by equities researchers at Cantor Fitzgerald in a research report issued to clients and investors on Monday. They currently have a $49.00 price target on the stock. Cantor Fitzgerald’s target price indicates a potential upside of 28.10% from the stock’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “. We maintain our Overweight rating on TVTY shares and our 12-month price target of $49. After the close on Monday, November 5, TVTY reported 3Q18 results, with revenue slightly below our estimate and FactSet consensus, while adjusted EPS were slightly above our estimate and consensus. Visits continued to rebound from 1Q18 levels, which were negatively affected by flu and weather. TVTY fine-tuned its 2018 guidance. Last quarter, the company indicated that UnitedHealth Group (UNH – Overweight) will remove SilverSneakers in 11 additional states beginning in 2019. At this juncture, it is probably safe to assume that UNH will move the remaining states in 2020.””
