What are Wall Street analysts saying about Costco Wholesale stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Costco Wholesale stock:

  • 1. <" (12/4/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Costco continues to be one of the dominant retail wholesalers based on the breadth and quality of merchandise offered. The stock has outpaced the industry in a year gaining from sturdy comps performance and upbeat results in fourth-quarter fiscal 2017. Costco seems somewhat unfazed by tough retail scenario, comprising soft traffic and inclination toward online shopping. Moreover, we believe that the hike in annual membership fees and higher penetration of Citi Visa co-brand card program will also benefit the stock. We are also encouraged by Costco’s expansion strategy, as it remains committed to opening new clubs and expanding e-commerce capabilities. However, stiff competition and cautious consumer spending remain threats. Further, investors remain concerned about the contraction in gross margin and marginal decline in membership renewal rates that is expected to continue for at least a quarter or two. These may hurt the bottom line." (10/9/2017)
  • 3. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "COST reported 1Q17 EPS of $1.17 (-5.5% y/y) below of our $1.35 estimate and the Street's $1.36. Reasons we'd buy COST on a post-2Q dip: 1) The new credit card benefitted 2Q EPS by $0.16 and is seeing strong trends in account activation, card usage and new sign-ups. 2) COST announced a North American membership fee increase of ~10% to go into effect 6/1. The additional revenue affords COST the ability to further invest in pricing for members, an important lever for growth. 3) Online sales reaccelerated to +12% in 2Q, from +8% in 1Q, driven by COST's investments in site functionality, merch availability and delivery/returns. 4) The dynamics underlying our expectation for accelerating SSS growth in 2H17 remain in place. 5) COST's capital structure is solid, supporting our belief that another special dividend could be paid this year. We reiterate our Buy rating on COST." (3/6/2017)
  • 4. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "In addition to appreciating $39.99 red roses we are buyers of COST as we expect steady traffic gains should continue on superior value and brands, an appealing shopping experience, & a global runway of growth. The qtr. did highlight changes ahead including promotional direct mail changes, membership fee increases, & online expansion ' these factors should help fortify long-term growth. What's MVM?.. We believe Costco is well positioned to continue delivering double-digit earnings growth over the near to medium term driven by square footage growth, steady membership revenue growth, and positive same-store sales comps. Costco's higher income customer base (average household income of ~$96,000) is faring better economically than low- to middle-income consumers, who continue to struggle with wage growth. We believe superb price/value, luxury product, and streamlined assortment helps drive a sustainable high-margin membership stream. Rated Outperform with a $170 PT based on ~28x FY2017E EPS." (3/3/2017)
  • 5. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "Costco reported a large F2Q17 EPS miss given several margin-related headwinds. On the positive side, Costco also announced it is raising membership fees in the U.S. and Canada on June 1 by ~9% and U.S. customer traffic remained a solid +3% in February. We rate COST shares Outperform with a $180 target price." (3/3/2017)
