Stifel analyst Christopher Growe upgraded The Simply Goods Group (NASDAQ: SMPL) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $42.00 (from $38.00).

The analyst commented, "We are upgrading the shares to Buy from Hold and establishing a $42 target price. Our outlook for near-term growth bolstered by the potential for an acceleration in long-term growth driven the growth in new users and increased household penetration provides the basis of our optimism here. A recovery in mobility and buy-rate for its products is not embedded in our estimates and could enhance its growth through the year. We believe M&A activity could occur as well and, while difficult to estimate, we see opportunity from Simply using its balance sheet to buy a business or being a takeover candidate itself. The company reported a stronger 4Q21 performance and offered guidance in line with our consensus-leading estimate – 11% sales growth and 12% EBITDA growth. While the shares reacted favorably on Friday, we believe the revelation of the growth potential throughout FY22 should continue to move the shares higher."
