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.

Stephens more cautious on Rent-A-Center after update on strategic process
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic said he is incrementally more negative n Rent-A-Center after the company said its board expects to reach a determination with respect to "whether" to pursue a sale of the company, as he thought selling the company was the main activist thesis. A decision not to sell would drive "material downside" for Rent-A-Center shares, Caintic believes. The company comments on January and February same-store sale were also negative, noted the analyst, who maintains his Underweight rating and $5 price target on Rent-A-Center shares.
