5 Stocks Hit 52-Week Highs: Cost Plus, News Corp

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks hit 52-week highs on Thursday: Cost Plus (CPWM), Family Dollar (FDO - Get Report), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM - Get Report), Valspar (VAL - Get Report) and News Corp (NWSA - Get Report).

Cost Plus

The casual home furnishings retailer reached a deal to be acquired by Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) for $22 a share in cash, or about $500 million.

"We do not believe Bed Bath & Beyond intends to re-brand stores for either company, and instead believe Cost Plus will continue to pursue its expansion plans of opening new stores under the Cost Plus banner," Wedbush analysts wrote in a report Thursday.

Shares of Cost Plus hit a 52-week high of $21.97. The stock's 52-week low of $5.57 was set on Oct. 4.

Cost Plus trades at an estimated price-to-earnings ratio for next year of 17.14 times; the average for specialty retailers is 15.22.

Four of the seven analysts who cover Cost Plus rated it hold. Two analysts gave the stock a buy rating and one rated it sell.

The stock has risen 125.13% year to date.
