Tesco: Consistent Earnings Growth at Attractive Price
Tesco (ADR stock ticker: TSCDY) should be considered for potential purchase based on its leading position in the UK retail market, its expansion opportunities in international markets, its ability to improve operating margins and its attractive dividend yield of 3.6%.
Tesco’s ADR stock price target is $21.30 based on applying a 13x multiple to its earnings next year. Tesco deserves to trade at a premium multiple to its high single digits / low teens long-term earnings growth rate based on its consistent earnings execution, its focus on maximizing shareholder value, its best in class EBIT margins and its strong return on equity.
