Cumulus Ends The Week On A Strong Note


Is a leaner Cumulus Media a more profitable one? That’s what investors indicate, based on the strength seen on Friday for the company’s stock.

Minutes before the Closing Bell on Wall Street, CMLS was trading at $18.20, up 39 cents from Thursday’s close.

Cumulus, however, is a thinly traded issue, with just 7,188 shares trading on Friday.

Still, CMLS holds a 1-year Target Estimate of $16, and it has been since early September that Cumulus’ stock has been valued at this level.

The boost could be tied to preliminary Q4 results released this week by Cumulus.
