Wedbush initiates coverage on Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) with an Outperform. PT $25.00.
Analyst, Corinna Freedman, said, "We believe the shares can trade higher over the near-term due to attractive valuation relative to growth, upcoming positive catalysts on the horizon and a period of favorable seasonality...Fundamentally, we are also positive on the shares given minimal input cost inflation relative to competitors, strong franchise in kids footwear (a less economically sensitive customer base,) above retail average store expansion and resulting improvement in leverage."
