Why big-name brokers are backing speculative small cap MotorCycle Holdings Ltd (ASX:MTO)

Wilsons has joined Morgans in slapping a buy rating on motorcycle dealership operator MotorCycle Holdings Ltd (ASX: MTO) with Wilsons placing a 12-month price target of $4.29 on its shares.

Morgans issued a buy rating on this underperforming small cap back in February, despite its disappointing results announcement, as the figures still exceeded the broker’s expectations.

Wilsons buy rating is based on MotorCycle Holdings FY18 guidance EBITDA in the range of $19 million and $21 million – compared to a consensus of $21.9 million and Wilsons’ own forecast of $21.5 million.

Auto stocks as a whole have been performing well of late, with shares in four-wheel drive accessories company ARB Corporation Limited (ASX: ARB) hitting a 52-week high on June 21 when its share price reached $23.50.
