FBR & Co reissued their buy rating on shares of ClubCorp Holdings Inc. (NYSE:MYCC) in a research report report published on Friday morning. The firm currently has a $17.00 price objective on the stock.

“On September 15, 2016, FrontFour Capital Group, which holds ~3.4% of MYCC (part of initial IPO), delivered a letter to CEO Eric Affeldt, explaining its belief that poor investor messaging has led to depressed valuation and urging the board to pursue strategic alternatives, including a potential sale of the company. The issues listed were nothing new to investors and have been talked about for some time now. We believe management has been doing a good job trying to ease concerns and address these issues. However, even with the stock up 32% since our initiation on June 29, 2016, vs. the S&P 500 up 4%, we agree with FrontFour that the stock remains undervalued, and we expect to see continued appreciation as it should become clearer that fundamentals are intact, many of these concerns are nonissues, and reinvention capital and leverage come down.”,” FBR & Co’s analyst commented.
