Analyst action: Acadia, Tractor Supply

Brian Tanquilut at Jefferies says investors are right to look at Acadia Healthcare as a solid M&A play in the behavioral health sector. But, he added late last week in raising his Acadia price target to $39 from $30, the company also is doing a very nice job raising margins at facilities once it owns them. Acadia (Ticker: ACHC) closed Friday trading at $31.64 and is up 35 percent so far this year.

Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel has hiked his rating on shares of Tractor Supply to ‘market outperform’ and lifted his price target to $125 from $100. That puts him at the head of the pack and alongside David Strasser from Janney Montgomery Scott. Tractor Supply shares (Ticker: TSCO) ended last week at almost $111.
