Jefferies upgrades Royal Mail to 'hold'

By Michele Maatouk

Date: Tuesday 16 Feb 2021

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Jefferies upgraded its stance on shares of Royal Mail on Tuesday to 'hold' from 'underperform' and hiked the price target to 450p from 300p.
The bank said a better-than-expected peak season and ongoing Covid-19 restrictions lead to a 60% increase in its FY20/21E operating profit forecast to 580m.

"We estimate the exceptional Covid-19 impact at circa 25% of operating profit and project FY21/22E at 432m, assuming a 12% parcel volume decline, mitigated by an 8% letter volume recovery, and 4% lower opex," it said.

Jefferies noted the shares are now trading at 12.0x FY21/22E EV/EBIT, in line with the postal sector.

At 1335 GMT, the shares were up 1.9% at 476.54p.
