Considering that the company focuses on the same business segment as La
In the recently reported results for 2011, TheCompany had total earnings of $
12,293 million and a net margin of 5.4%. At the operating level the company had
a $ 23,497 million EBITDA which is 23% higher than the one it had during 2010.
The growthin operating income was driven by increasing retail sales through a
22% expansion in store surface, and a 13% SSS growth, while marginally
increasing costs. On the Financial business the companyhad a 17% increase in
loans outstanding, while increasing revenues by 24% and increasing gross
margins from 56% to 63%.
After releasing its results for the year 2011, we are resuming coverage ofHITES
with a HOLD rating and a 12 month target price of $ 400. Our target price
estimate has a 7.4% upside potential, and a 10% total return if we consider a
30% dividend distribution policy, in linewith the company´s historical payout
ratio. This expected return is slightly above the 5.1% increase we estimate for
the IPSA index, which makes it a relatively attractive investment in terms ofreturn, although the operational risk and illiquidity of the stock aren’t attractive
enough to justify a BUY rating on a risk return basis.
