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 Holdings, Inc. is involved in optical retail primarily in the United States. The company offer product and services for eye care needs through retail stores and consumer websites. Its brand portfolio consists of America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses, Eyeglass World, Vision Centers inside select Walmart stores and Vista Optical locations inside Fred Meyer stores and on select military bases. National Vision Holdings, Inc. is headquartered in Duluth, Georgia. " (8/1/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to see several tailwinds to revenue growth and, despite trading at a premium valuation, we would use the weakness YTD as an incremental opportunity to accumulate (-21.3% vs. S&P 500 +1.4%). 1Q is EYE’s largest quarter, but there has recently been some noise as the timing of tax refunds continues to elongate the peak selling season. We believe it is prudent to look at the performance of the business in 1H18 vs. 1H17. In 1Q17, EYE experienced its slowest quarter of consolidated comp growth (+4.4%; AB +6.9%; EGW +3.9%). Important to our L-T thesis, EYE experienced strong demand in 2Q17 (+9.1% consolidated comp growth; AB +12.2%; EGW +9.2%), demonstrating the non-discretionary nature of the business. Weather was also a slight headwind in the quarter. We now expect 80bps of QoQ consolidated comp acceleration in 2Q18, resulting in a +5.0% comp in 1H18." (5/15/2018)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We view National Vision as an attractive core holding for small/midcap growth investors with a favorable set-up at this stage in the economic cycle owing to both offensive (white space, +MSD comps) and defensive (recurring revenue, subscription club, recession resistance) characteristics.  A model with visibility; an eye on value in historically high- priced category. Challenges across retail have been well documented, but National Vision has outgrown peers and taken share by offering low prices and free eye exams to an underserved value segment of the market. Over the past 10 years, value players have outgrown the industry by nearly 2x (6.6% vs. 3.4% CAGR), with National Vision a key contributor posting 62 straight quarters of positive comps (+5% during this time, including recession).  A look ahead; we model double-digit sales & profit growth. Over the next 3-5 years, we expect National Vision to post ~10% EBITDA and." (11/20/2017)
