Coty may consider acquiring Avon Products, says DA Davidson

DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser speculates that Coty (COTY) may be interested in acquiring Avon Products (AVP). Weiser says Coty has recently added $587M in debt and when asked about it on the earnings call, it claimed it was related to Burberry license acquisition where the payment was only expected to be about $162M. Coty management has also hinted that it intends to grow its EPS by using its balance sheet, says the analyst in her research note. Weiser keeps her Buy rating and $2 price target on Avon, saying the company "represents one of very few ways to gain immediate entry to the Latin American beauty market" while also noting that Coty "raves" about direct-to-consumer sales models.

Neutral
Avon Products price target lowered to $2 from $3 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser lowered her price target on Avon to $2 following the latest quarterly results. Weiser notes that along with the EPS miss, sales were flat and 100bp operating margin expansion model was too optimistic. The analyst notes that service disruptions and investments this year have offset cost reductions, while earthquakes in Mexico will likely weigh on Q4 earnings. The analyst is keeping her Neutral rating on Avon.
