<WIRE> Bunnings Seen as 'Jewel in the Crown' for Wesfarmers (ASX:WES) by Macquarie

Analysts from Macquarie have increased the price target on Wesfarmers (ASX:WES), Australia’s retail giant, by 5.6% to A$57/share.

The expected earnings of the company have also been revised upwards, in the range of 5% to 7.2% for the financial years 2025 and 2026.
