Seaport Global Securities initiated coverage on Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU) with an Accumulate rating and a price target of $104. Analyst Mark A. Levin thinks concerns create opportunity.

"Our target assumes the shares trade to 20x our 2017 EPS estimate of $5.20. With volumes likely to improve in Q4 and the first half of 2017 (absent a recession), we expect growth investors will eventually return to KSU. What's notable is that the relative premium at which KSU trades to other Class I rails has compressed meaningfully as investors have gravitated to names with cheaper multiples and/or more potential upside from coal. We think this creates an opportunity to buy the best growth story in the space at a reasonable price," said Levin.
