The Bullish Case for Cinemark Holdings (CNK)

Cinemark Holdings (CNK) is approaching a key resistance level.  If the level is surpassed a breakout could occur…

Cinemark Holdings (CNK) is the third- largest motion picture exhibitor in the United States. The company operates 4,568 screens in 37 states and 12 Latin American countries.

The company has been struggling due to limited attendance amid the coronavirus pandemic. But it has plenty of liquidity to hold it over until the vaccine distribution takes effect and moviegoers start coming back. Last week B. Riley raised its price target for the stock to $28, which is over 50% higher than its current price.

CNK had $826 million in cash as of the end of the last quarter, compared with $3.6 billion in long-term debt and only $ million in short-term debt. While sales are estimated to be down 88.2% (year over year) in the fourth quarter, they are expected to rise 174.5% for 2021.

It has a very low 8.29 trailing P/E and 1.63 Price to Sales ratio. The company has shown some recent weakness, but is up over 15% for the past month. This has led to a “Neutral” rating in our POWR Ratings system.
