What are Wall Street analysts saying about Columbia Sportswear stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Columbia Sportswear stock:
  • 1. 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." (1/18/2019)
  • 2. 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."
