S&W Seed Company (NASDAQ:SANW)‘s stock had its “outperform” rating restated by Zacks in a research note issued to investors on Wednesday, AnalystRatings.NET reports. They currently have a $12.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s price target would indicate a potential upside of 74.67% from the stock’s previous close.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “S&W Seed is a developer of drought and salt resistant alfalfa seed varieties. The company has unused processing capacity that, when utilized, provides significant operating earnings leverage. The recent addition of Round-Up Ready alfalfa seeds could have a significant impact on selling prices. The company now owns the international distributor of its seeds. S&W Seed has expanded the program to produce Stevia leaf to be used to make a natural, non-caloric sweetener. This is a rapidly growing market with a large potential for commercial development of varieties that will grow in California. The company has a five year sales contract with PureCircle, the world’s largest producer of Stevia sweeteners, for production quantities of dried Stevia leaf. Our recommendation remains as Outperform and our target price is $12.00. .”
