Analysts Anticipate PBP Will Reach $23

Looking at the underlying holdings of the ETFs in our coverage universe at ETF Channel , we have compared the trading price of each holding against the average analyst 12-month forward target price, and computed the weighted average implied analyst target price for the ETF itself. For the PowerShares S&P 500 BuyWrite Portfolio ETF (Symbol: PBP), we found that the implied analyst target price for the ETF based upon its underlying holdings is $23.12 per unit.

With PBP trading at a recent price near $21.04 per unit, that means that analysts see 9.91% upside for this ETF looking through to the average analyst targets of the underlying holdings. Three of PBP's underlying holdings with notable upside to their analyst target prices are Total System Services, Inc. (Symbol: TSS), FLIR Systems, Inc. (Symbol: FLIR), and Analog Devices Inc (Symbol: ADI). Although TSS has traded at a recent price of $48.01/share, the average analyst target is 21.43% higher at $58.30/share. Similarly, FLIR has 20.56% upside from the recent share price of $30.69 if the average analyst target price of $37.00/share is reached, and analysts on average are expecting ADI to reach a target price of $75.41/share, which is 16.48% above the recent price of $64.74.

Below is a summary table of the current analyst target prices discussed above:

Name Symbol Recent Price Avg. Analyst 12-Mo. Target % Upside to Target
PowerShares S&P 500 BuyWrite Portfolio ETF PBP $21.04 $23.12 9.91%
Total System Services, Inc. TSS $48.01 $58.30 21.43%
FLIR Systems, Inc. FLIR $30.69 $37.00 20.56%
Analog Devices Inc ADI $64.74 $75.41 16.48%

Are analysts justified in these targets, or overly optimistic about where these stocks will be trading 12 months from now? Do the analysts have a valid justification for their targets, or are they behind the curve on recent company and industry developments? A high price target relative to a stock's trading price can reflect optimism about the future, but can also be a precursor to target price downgrades if the targets were a relic of the past. These are questions that require further investor research.
