Alexander & Baldwin (NASDAQ:ALEX)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reissued by analysts at Compass Point in a research report issued to clients and investors on Friday. They currently have a $60.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $58.00. Compass Point’s price target suggests a potential upside of 48.11% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “We are reiterating our Buy rating and raising our price target to $60 from $58 on shares of ALEX. After a thorough review of the company’s 10Q (filed August 8), we are publishing our updated valuation model for the company. We are increasing our NAV to $60 from $58 primarily as a result of ALEX’s ramp up in NOI and strength in Grace’s backlog (up 15% yoy). We believe that Kukui’ula will continue to be the key dial-moving asset of our NAV as price and pace continue to excel and beat our (and the Street’s) expectations while (1) updates on future developments, (2) migration of mainland assets back to HI, and (3) government paving contract awards all remain as future catalysts for the stock. Below, we include the most interesting and relevant information disclosed in the earnings release and 10Q as well as recent updates.”
