Barclays Analyst Boosts Tronox Holdings Price Target by 29.4%: Strong Buy Rating Maintained

Barclays's Michael Leithead raised their price target on Tronox Holdings (NYSE: TROX) by 29.4% from $17 to $22 on 2024/05/15. The analyst maintained their Strong Buy rating on the stock.

Leithead reported that their price target hike was catalyzed by a deep dive into their Basic Materials (U.S. Chemicals & Packaging) sector coverage area, post-Tronox Holdings's Q1 2024 earnings report on 2024/05/01. The analyst told investors that a positive volume rebound in the TiO2 market in Q1 demonstrated the company's operational leverage that should drive recovery.

On 2024/05/15, the analyst also raised their price target on Kronos Worldwide Inc by 12.5%, from $8 to $9, and maintained their Strong Sell rating.

Analyst ratings can provide valuable insights for investors, and Leithead's bullish stance on Tronox Holdings indicates their confidence in the company's future performance. According to their assessment, the positive volume rebound in the TiO2 market during the first quarter showcases Tronox's ability to leverage its operations, which should contribute to the company's recovery.

It is worth noting that 100% of top-rated analysts currently rate TROX as a Strong Buy or Buy, with no analysts considering it a Hold. Additionally, no analysts recommend or strongly recommend selling the stock. This widespread optimism among analysts further supports Leithead's positive outlook on Tronox Holdings.
