RH Defied the Market Trend, Rose ~10% on October 11

RH (RH) shares defied the general market trend and rose ~10% on October 11 following the company’s announcement to buyback shares worth $700 million. RH is expected to generate more than $260 million in cash flows in 2018. The company’s decision to announce the share buyback reflects Gary Friedman’s, RH’s chairman and CEO, view that the company’s shares are “undervalued.” Following the announcement, Stifel upgraded RH stock to “buy” from “hold” and raised the target price to $150 per share from $142.
