EQWS's Holdings Imply 16% Gain Potential

Mon, Jul 17, 8:54 AM ET, by ETF Channel

Looking at the underlying holdings of the ETFs in our coverage universe at ETF Channel, we have compared the trading price of each holding against the average analyst 12-month forward target price, and computed the weighted average implied analyst target price for the ETF itself. For the PowerShares Russell 2000 Equal Weight Portfolio ETF (EQWS), we found that the implied analyst target price for the ETF based upon its underlying holdings is $46.43 per unit.

ETFs With Most Upside To Analyst Targets

With EQWS trading at a recent price near $40.11 per unit, that means that analysts see 15.76% upside for this ETF looking through to the average analyst targets of the underlying holdings. Three of EQWS's underlying holdings with notable upside to their analyst target prices are Anavex Life Sciences Corp (AVXL), Asterias Biotherapeutics Inc (AST), and Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (ENT). Although AVXL has traded at a recent price of $5.34/share, the average analyst target is 180.90% higher at $15.00/share. Similarly, AST has 153.57% upside from the recent share price of $3.50 if the average analyst target price of $8.88/share is reached, and analysts on average are expecting ENT to reach a target price of $8.88/share, which is 144.49% above the recent price of $3.63. Below is a twelve month price history chart comparing the stock performance of AVXL, AST, and ENT:

AVXL, AST, and ENT Relative Performance Chart

Below is a summary table of the current analyst target prices discussed above:

Name Symbol Recent Price Avg. Analyst 12-Mo. Target % Upside to Target
PowerShares Russell 2000 Equal Weight Portfolio ETF EQWS $40.11 $46.43 15.76%
Anavex Life Sciences Corp AVXL $5.34 $15.00 180.90%
Asterias Biotherapeutics Inc AST $3.50 $8.88 153.57%
Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. ENT $3.63 $8.88 144.49%

Are analysts justified in these targets, or overly optimistic about where these stocks will be trading 12 months from now? Do the analysts have a valid justification for their targets, or are they behind the curve on recent company and industry developments? A high price target relative to a stock's trading price can reflect optimism about the future, but can also be a precursor to target price downgrades if the targets were a relic of the past. These are questions that require further investor research.
