What are Wall Street analysts saying about Columbia Sportswear stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Columbia Sportswear stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We believe that MagnaChip’s 4Q17 OLED revenue, which declined 19% Q/Q, was primarily due timing at major OEMs being pushed out to 1Q18 due to: many of the 18 design win total at the end of 3Q17 should hit production next quarter, MX guiding to 75% Q/Q rev. growth in 1Q18 (and $100M+ in rev. this year), and 6 additional design wins secured this quarter. We believe that MX has the most comprehensive OLED driver portfolio and expect 72% Y/Y growth in 2018. Despite MX being, in our opinion, one of the best OLED plays we are cautious towards GMs in 2018 as MX faces the headwinds of high wafer pricing and its portfolio optimization strategy potentially reducing utilizations in the near-term." (2/7/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Columbia Sportswear have outperformed the industry in the past year on the back of a solid surprise history and sturdy performance of the company’s European wholesale and U.S. direct-to-consumer businesses. In fact, the company’s top- and bottom-line results in the third quarter of 2017 were primarily driven by improved sales in all international regions. Incidentally, the company is on track with Project CONNECT initiative to drive revenues, capture efficiencies, improve marketing processes and lower SG&A costs. Further as part of the company’s marketing initiatives, it has developed several shop-in-shops and enhanced the number of brand presentations in key partner store locations. However, the company has been facing challenges in the U.S. region, especially on its wholesale front. Moreover, the company remains prone to headwinds such as volatility in the prices of several raw materials and currency fluctuations." (1/17/2018)
  • 3. FBR & Co analysts commented, "COLM posted 3Q EPS of $1.25 versus FBR/consensus of $1.14/$1.15, driven by better margins and stronger than expected revenue. Total revenue growth was +0.2% (versus FBR/consensus of -5.2%/-1.3%), driven by a strong Columbia result and positive international sales. Management reiterated 2017 guidance of +3% top line (versus FBR/consensus of +1.8%/+2.8%) and altered EPS guidance to $2.60– $2.70 from $2.74-$2.84, including a $0.14 per share impact related to Project CONNECT (versus FBR/consensus of $2.79/$2.81). Management did note that a shift in wholesale orders from 3Q into 4Q will benefit 4Q17. Based on advanced orders for Spring 2018, management indicated that they expect U.S. wholesale to turn positive for 1H18. COLM continues to be a outperformer in a tough environment, and we believe it is well positioned to continue to gain share, particularly as we enter winter 2017 with improved inventory positions."
