What are Wall Street analysts saying about National Vision stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about National Vision stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "National Vision exceeded the first quarter on a strong note with better-than-expected earnings and revenues. The company has been witnessing positive comps on increased customer transaction for past 69 quarters. However, we are disappointed with the company expecting to report softer comps in the second quarter as compared to the previous projections. According to National Vision, the timing of tax refunds and the size will impede growth. On a positive note, National Vision’s plans to continue to focus on core growth drivers in 2019 buoy optimism. In this regard, the company aims at increasing its store count following a formula-based approach. However, the company’s high dependence on limited number of vendors is a concern. Also, a tough competitive landscape is a threat. Moreover, rising costs can exert pressure on the bottom line. Overall, National Vision has been underperforming its industry in the past three months." (5/15/2019) 2.
