Street sees National Vision as a buy, some shorts disagree, Barron's says

National Vision has been the fastest growing U.S. optical chain for a decade, with just about every broker calling the stock a Buy, Bill Alpert writes in this week's edition of Barron's. But in recent months, the stock has tumbled as key investor sol shares and shorts started to circle, the author notes. Recent critiques by short-oriented analysts have weighed on the stock, saying that the National Vision's discount offers, widely advertised to low income consumers, are not appropriate for most customers because the material used to make the glasses is too heavy for strong prescriptions and too prone to shattering, Alpert notes.

Buy
National Vision upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded National Vision to Buy and raised his price target to $37 from $30 after its Q2 results. The analyst is positive on the company's "differentiated concept" with comp growth drivers that include store maturation, increased marketing, and increasing vision insurance program participation, along with the "favorable" dynamics in the specialty optical retail industry. Chukumba adds that National Vision should be able to continue expanding store base square footage for the next several years.

Outperform
National Vision price target lowered to $30 from $37 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Zachary Fadem lowered his price target for National Vision (EYE) to $30 from $37 giving near-term overhangs. The analyst also notes that sentiment is "increasingly poor," but margin improvement offers a chance at redemption. While investor sentiment around Walmart (WMT) has shifted from an opportunity to an overhang, Fadem believes shares now price a worst case scenario that he views unlikely near-term. He reiterates an Outperform rating on National Vision's stock.

Buy
National Vision upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded National Vision to Buy with a price target of $28, saying the recent pullback in its stock price has created an attractive entry opportunity. The analyst is positive on the company's "healthy" outlook for comps thanks to its "unique value proposition, predictable store maturation curve, and marketing campaigns". Ohmes adds that his price target is based on the 13.5-times his expected FY21 EBITDA multiple, which is a modest premium to value and optical retail group average of about 13-times.
