Jefferies analyst Philip Ng reiterated a Buy rating and $47.00 price target on WillScot Mobile Mini Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: WSC) after holding meetings with Tim Boswell (CFO) and walking away encouraged to learn that shipments are expected to drop 30% in 2023 to fully offset price gains, demonstrating the resilience of the business .

The analyst said: “Price visibility bolsters management’s confidence in earnings growth, even in a recession. The cost of new units has increased 40% over the past 2 years and financing costs have risen, pushing the base rate for new supply higher, and spot rates are around 30% above the WSC fleet average.The pricing benefit of the inflationary backdrop will be felt more fully as units fall apart and will have a lasting impact over the next few years as inflation stabilizes.Holding current prices stable, prices are expected to be up around 10% over the next 3 years in modular, but WSC is also targeting increases of around 25% on renewals, and that tends to hold steady given the high switching costs for existing customers.”
