What are Wall Street analysts saying about Columbia Sportswear stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Columbia Sportswear stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are encouraged by the continued momentum in the business and believe COLM is well-positioned to continue to drive outsized results. Looking to 2019, we see another year of solid growth and our estimates incorporate healthy revenue (+HSD%) and EPS (+LDD%) growth, as we believe COLM has meaningful growth opportunities, globally, in Footwear/Apparel. We remain BUY-rated and raise our PT to $120 from $115." (2/7/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Columbia Sportswear has outpaced the industry in a year driven by its robust past record that was retained in the third quarter of 2018. In the quarter, both top and the bottom lines grew year over year and beat the consensus mark for the seventh and 23rd consecutive time, respectively. Sales were backed by solid growth in all geographic regions, product categories and most brands. Further, direct-to-consumer and wholesale businesses continued being strong. These factors along with improved margins and lower tax rate fueled the bottom line. The company’s upbeat third-quarter and year-to-date performance led management to raise 2018 view. However, the company is battling high that escalated 13% in the reported quarter. Management expects SG&A costs to increase further that may weigh on its operating margin in 2018. Nonetheless, we expect the company’s Project CONNECT program to provide significant cushion in the near future." (2/7/2019)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We expect COLM to beat its 4Q plan. When COLM reported 3Q (on October 25 th ), the company not only beat its plan for the quarter but also cited strong momentum continuing into early 4Q, with both factors contributing to upwardly-revised FY18 guidance. In other words, at that time, COLM was expecting a good 4Q. That said, the company also has a history of providing conservative guidance, so we doubt that its outlook fully reflected all of the good it was expecting. As it turned out, weather was very favorable in October and November, which was a tailwind for COLM’s wholesale channel, and we believe this more than offset a warm December, which wasn’t the best backdrop for its DTC channel." (2/5/2019)
