A broker is predicting the Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE) share price could make significant gains in the future.
The wine company’s shares are currently swapping hands at $11.85, a 0.42% gain. In comparison, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is 1.3% higher at the time of writing.
Let’s take a look at why experts recommend this company.
The team at Citi believes Treasury Wine is a buy with a $13.78 price target. That’s nearly 17% more than the current share price.
Citi says Treasury Wine could outperform its expectations in the second half. Citi said industry data shows sales are also shifting from the retail channel to the on-premise channel.
As my Foolish colleague James noted, this could be a huge positive given this channel offers higher margin.
Experts have also recently named Treasury Wine as one of five ASX shares to ride out the 2022 volatility.
