  • Susquehanna Bancshares Inc analysts commented, "Thursday's announcement that FINL has entered into a firm agreement to exit JackRabbit is a positive development. Increased focus on the core Finish Line banner has been needed for some time. However, it's too early to tell if more focus will help to establish an identity for the Finish Line brand." (1/30/2017)
  • Wedbush analysts commented, "doesn't take much" to achieve. Specifically, the company could generate an earnings per share of $2.30 by fiscal 2020, which doesn't even include benefits from leveraging its supply chain, benefits from store remodels, full-priced sales, growth in digital and profitable or divested Jack Rabbit."Investors give little value to the after mentioned factors," the analyst argued.In addition, Svezia is estimating Finish Line will achieve a free cash flow of $83 million in fiscal 2017 and $97 million in fiscal 2018, sufficient enough to support a healthy buyback program and a two percent dividend yield.Finally, the analyst noted that shares of Finish Line are trading at 11x P/E, or a 14 percent discount to its five-year historical average.Bottom line, the stock suffered from a "bumpy run but [Finish Line's] finish line finally maybe in sight."

  • Deutsche Bank AG analysts commented, "the right path to stable top-line productivity and DD EPS growth."We believe new CEO Sam Sato and new Chief Merchant John Hall are improving vendor relationships, and store closures and remodels should aid SSS and margins," analyst Paul Trussell wrote in a note. "We see reasons to think supply chain issues are finally behind us, and comScore indicates a digital pick-up in June and July. Finally, FINL laps easy SSS and GPM compares ahead," Trussell continued.However, the stock has also gained about 50 percent since January 2015 lows due to investor optimism on the company's prospects.

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "FINL reported adjusted F1Q17 EPS of $0.23, versus FBR/consensus of $0.23/$0.22. (See earlier note for details.) Management expects GM and SG&A margins to contract in F2Q17, similarly to 1Q; but it indicated there is a product margin and SG&A expansion opportunity in F2H17, which could drive upside to guidance. FINL has already started to benefit from its new supply chain systems, which, we think, could contribute to margin expansion in F2H17 and into FY18. Management noted that QTD comps are running +LSD. In addition to the appointment of new chief operations and chief IT officers in February, FINL recently, in May, hired John Hall as division president and chief merchandising officer and Debbie Fortnum as SVP of supply chain. We believe FINL’s new executive team sets it up well to execute in FY17." (6/29/2016)
