Looking at the underlying holdings of the ETFs in our coverage universe at ETF Channel , we have compared the trading price of each holding against the average analyst 12-month forward target price, and computed the weighted average implied analyst target price for the ETF itself. For the ProShares Ultra Industrials ETF (Symbol: UXI), we found that the implied analyst target price for the ETF based upon its underlying holdings is $81.01 per unit.
With UXI trading at a recent price near $73.58 per unit, that means that analysts see 10.10% upside for this ETF looking through to the average analyst targets of the underlying holdings. Three of UXI’s underlying holdings with notable upside to their analyst target prices are MRC Global Inc (Symbol: MRC), Anixter International Inc (Symbol: AXE), and Gardner Denver Holdings Inc (Symbol: GDI). Although MRC has traded at a recent price of $13.20/share, the average analyst target is 37.31% higher at $18.12/share. Similarly, AXE has 24.46% upside from the recent share price of $57.45 if the average analyst target price of $71.50/share is reached, and analysts on average are expecting GDI to reach a target price of $33.55/share, which is 11.92% above the recent price of $29.98.

Are analysts justified in these targets, or overly optimistic about where these stocks will be trading 12 months from now? Do the analysts have a valid justification for their targets, or are they behind the curve on recent company and industry developments? A high price target relative to a stock’s trading price can reflect optimism about the future, but can also be a precursor to target price downgrades if the targets were a relic of the past. These are questions that require further investor research.
