New Analyst Price Target Set for the PG Stock
An Evercore ISI analyst just upgraded The Procter & gamble company (PG) stock. The analyst envisions a potential 11.41% upside for PG shares. PG stock has jumped nearly -3.42%, just based on this upgrade news.
The Procter & gamble company (NYSE:PG) has faced a challenging market environment in 2022 so far. However, a fresh upgrade from one Evercore ISI analyst is spurring traders to send PG stock higher today.
What does this Upgrade mean for PG Stock?
This upgrade came at a great time for the Procter & gamble company as its investors have endured recent hardships. The PG stock is down nearly 10% YTD and it has fallen from its 52-week high of $163.84 to its current price of $148.06.
However, there is some good that has come from PG's poor recent performance. PG's recent adversity has resulted in a great opportunity for investors, as their financial ratios are more attractive now than they have previously been. These attractive ratios could have been an influencing factor in Evercore ISI's decision to upgrade its outlook on the PG stock.
Evercore ISI is foreseeing a “better risk/reward ratio” for the PG stock now than they have previously. With that being said, Evercore ISI raised their price target to $180, as they expect The Procter & gamble company's market share to continue increasing.
If Evercore ISI's predictions pan out it could mean more than just an 11.41% upside, as it could encourage further growth in the PG stock.
Here are the latest analytics from the PG Stocktwits and PG Twitter communities (over the last 24hrs):
As we can see, the recent Evercore ISI analyst upgrade had a different effect on the social sentiment within both the PG Stocktwits and PG Twitter communities.
The social sentiment in both the PG Stocktwits and PG Twitter communities has been boosted by both their recent analyst upgrade and the fact that their stock just reported earnings. PG reported an EPS miss of $0.01 as they reported an EPS of $1.21 versus their estimate of $1.22. Furthermore, PG reported revenues of $19.52B versus their revenue estimate of $19.4B. Overall, their earnings were very neutral as they were very close to meeting EPS expectations, and they narrowly beat their revenue estimates. Lastly, Proctor & Gamble stated that they are expecting their financials to grow between 0-4% through 2023. This stagnant growth has investors worried and is a big talking point in the PG Stocktwits and Twitter communities.
