Wedbush initiates coverage on Pool Corp (NASDAQ: POOL) with a Outperform rating and a price target of $115.00.

Analyst Al Kaschalk commented, "With scale and as value added distributor of swimming pool supplies, equipment and related outdoor leisure products (Blue Business) and a recurring cash flow model, we view shares of Pool Corporation (POOL) as a core holding for mid-capitalization portfolios. POOL’s estimated ~44% market share lends itself to scale advantages, including purchasing and distribution efficiencies when combined with a large installed base of swimming pools, recovery in US single-family housing, and its growing Irrigation and Landscape (Green business) segment; we look for POOL’s EPS CAGR to be in the 15-18% range over the midterm. POOL’s >100% net income converted to cash flow provides ample funding for disciplined acquisition strategy as well as returns to shareholders via dividend growth and share repurchase program."
