Canaccord Genuity raised its price target on Buy-rated Williams-Sonoma (NYSE: WSM) from $53 to $55 citing dominant e-commerce business.

"We believe WSM's dominant e-commerce business remains a significant growth
catalyst," analyst Laura Champine said. "WSM is the clear leader in home furnishings e-commerce, generating $1.4B in FY11 online revenues, nearly 3x the size of its closest competitor. We estimate WSM's e-commerce sales will increase at a five-year CAGR of 15%, compared with 5% growth in the retail segment. We believe sustained growth of the e-commerce channel should drive higher returns and result in ROIC increasing from 13% to 18% over the next five years."
