Aaron's price target raised to $54 from $42 at Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Kyle Joseph raised his price target for Aaron's to $54 saying he remains a buyer of the shares following the company's Q2 results. Both Aaron's segments exceeded expectations while the 104 store acquisition highlights the benefits of its "robust balance sheet," Joseph tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares.

Rent-A-Center unlikely to be acquired by Aaron's, says Loop Capital
After three representatives of an activist investor were appointed to Rent-A-Center's (RCII) board, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba says that Aaron's (AAN) is unlikely to look to acquire the company because its business model is being hurt by virtual rent-to-own offerings. According to the analyst, Aaron's is much better positioned than Rent-A-Center in the virtual rent-to-own space. Moreover, the analyst thinks that the FTC could block the acquisition. He reiterates an $8 price target and a Sell rating on Rent-A-Center.

Stephens suggests pair trade of long Aaron's, short Synchrony
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic noted that Aaron's (AAN) won of the subprime portion of Signet Jewelers' (SIG) outsourcing of its credit portfolio, with Alliance Data (ADS) winning the prime portfolio, and he thinks there may be more upside to Aaron's revenues from this deal than Signet's financials suggest. Based on his belief that subprime consumer lenders are outperforming prime lenders, he suggests a pair trade of Aaron's long against Synchrony (SYF). Caintic has an Overweight rating and $38 price target on Aaron's shares.

Stephens cautious on article stating strategic buyers for Rent-A-Center
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic cautions Rent-A-Center (RCII) investors on near-term optimism following a TheDeal.com article stating strategic buyers for the company, namely Aaron's (AAN) and Buddy's. The analyst thinks operational headwinds are high, which may limit appetite for strategic buyers, and believes Aaron's can successfully compete away business from Rent-A-Center rather than having to pay to acquire it. He reiterates an Underweight rating and $9 price target on Rent-A-Center's shares.

Rent-A-Center sale still unlikely in near-term, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba thinks Engaged Capital has nominated a "strong" slate of director candidates for Rent-A-Center's (RCII) board and would not be surprised to see multiple of its nominees elected. However, he continues to believe a near-term sale of Rent-A-Center is highly unlikely, adding that he highly doubts Aaron's (AAN), which he sees as "the only logical strategic buyer," would be interested in taking on the integration challenge right now. Chukumba maintains a Hold rating on Rent-A-Center shares.
