JPMorgan analyst Matthew R. Boss upgraded Dillard's Inc. (NYSE: DDS) from Underweight to Neutral with a price target of $298.00 (from $210.00).

The analyst comments "Mgmt Follow-Up Takes & Model Implications - Upgrade DDS to Neutral & Raise PT to $298. We are upgrading DDS to Neutral and raising our Dec ’22 PT to $298 based on 5.2x EBITDA (= DDS 3-year/5-year pre-pandemic average) or 8x our 2023 EPS, in line with our current “Distressed Retail” current average. Digging deeper, nearterm our FY22 EPS of $44.78 (> Consensus at $35.71) embeds 2H22 EPS of $21.72, which conservatively stands 5% below DDS’ 1H22 reported EPS despite ~60% historical EPS seasonality in 2H with our FY23 EBIT margin of 11% 880bps above FY19 and 500bps above the aforementioned distressed retail average."
