Baird says Cintas short report 'weak and flawed,' recommends adding to positions

Baird analyst Andrew Wittmann said short-seller Spruce Point presented "a series of weak and flawed arguments which demonstrate poor understanding of the business model and the industry" in its report published this morning targeting Cintas. Of the five key topics of concern raised by Spruce Point, Wittmann said the only one he would not argue against is the stock's elevated valuation, as the shares recently have hit record valuations, but he adds that "You get what you pay for." On the allegations of fraudulent labor practices, Wittmann argues that Spruce Point is extrapolating a single inspection citation, which was an isolated incident, in a way that "succumbs to the anecdotal evidence fallacy." The analyst recommends adding to positions on any weakness and keeps an Outperform rating on Cintas with a $300 price target.

Outperform
Cintas price target raised to $267 from $258 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Seth Weber raised his price target on Cintas to $267 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q4 earnings beat, saying the company's "growth engine" continues "chugging". The analyst believes that the positive momentum at Cintas will continue as the company is positioned well to benefit from an "elevated" employment environment that features a mid-90% retention rate. Weber further cites Cintas management expectations of a "healthy" core organic uniform revenue growth, adding that the ongoing ERP implementation should give the company the cash flow with options for acquisitions, dividend increases, and stock buybacks.

Cintas price target raised to $275 from $267 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Seth Weber raised his price target on Cintas to $275 and kept his Outperform rating after its earnings beat and strong gross margin in Q1 along with its raised FY20 guidance. The analyst is positive on the company's pricing trends, "ramping G&K synergies", and operating leverage gains thanks to the "strong organic revenue growth and route density." Weber also adds that Cintas' near $1B free cash flow offers the company capital allocation opportunities.
