Loop Capital still sees no likely strategic buyers for Rent-A-Center
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba reiterates a Sell rating on Rent-A-Center with an $8 price target after the company declined Vintage Capital's offer to enter into a due diligence exclusivity agreement. The analyst continues to believe there are no likely strategic acquirers for Rent-A-Center and that a going private transaction is an "increasingly remote possibility" given the company's already high leverage and weakening performance. An indication of interest is a "far cry from actually making a definitive offer," Chukumba points out. He believes that absent a sale, the company has little chance of reaching its 2018 and 2019 financial targets.

Rent-A-Center remains overvalued, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Sell rating and $8 price target on Rent-A-Center, saying the company remains overvalued based on its historical average levels and average valuation of other "secularly challenged" specialty hardlines retailers. Chukumba also points to recent bearish developments for the stock, including the management's decision to stop providing monthly performance metrics, the new limit on interest expense deductibility in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the Board's proposal to declassify. The analyst also contends that a near-term sale of the company is unlikely.

Rent-A-Center CEO resignation 'another bad sign,' says Loop Capital
After Rent-A-Center announced that Mark Speese has resigned as CEO, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba called the news "another bad sign" that likely indicates that Speese was fed up with dealing with an activist investor pushing for a sale, Rent-A-Center continued to underperform in Q4, or both. Chukumba keeps his Sell rating and $8 price target on Rent-A-Center shares.

Loop Capital less optimistic on Rent-A-Center ahead of earnings
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Sell rating and $8 price target on Rent-a-Center ahead of Q4 earnings, but says he is turning even less optimistic about the company's top-line growth and profitability expectations. The analyst notes that investors will focus on comps and profitability, any 2018 guidance, a potential update on the company's progress in strategic alternatives review, and the turnaround plan of the recently appointed CEO.
