Oppenheimer analyst Scott Schneeberger upgraded McGrath Rentcorp (NASDAQ: MGRC) from to Outperform with a price target of $74.00.

The analyst commented, "We recently attended investor meetings with MGRC's CEO/CFO following its extended record of quarterly outperformance in COVID-19 challenged 2Q20. We see the potential for 1H20 to represent a trough/3Q20 adj. EBITDA consensus of $59M (mid-point of $54-64M guidance) to prove conservative. Believing this could be a catalyst and viewing MGRC undervalued, we upgrade from Perform to Outperform and establish a $74 target. Our target anticipates MGRC's multiple expanding from 7.1x EV/EBITDA our 2021E adj. EBITDA of $242M (conservatively maintained at +5% y/y) to 8.2x, which is consistent with its three-year average. Appreciating MGRC's ROIC/FCF focus and management's caution in the current environment, we view the risk/reward profile of segment expectations/MGRC's stock price favorable."
