What are analysts saying about Five Below stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Five Below stock:

  • 1. UBS AG analysts commented, "quickly recognize and react" to the fact that the toy's popularity is fading and will be forced to manage down its inventory, Lasser noted (see his track record here).In fact, the company has already become promotional and is offering two fidget spinners for $5 or one for $3.Second, Five Below's stock valuation has "hung in there better than most retailers" and is now trading at 27x on a next-twelve-month basis, the analyst continued. This represents a 65 percent premium versus the hardline and broader group average and marks an expansion from the 50 percent premium the stock traded at to start 2017.Finally, Five Below is still at the end of the day a retailer and at the very least the negative perception of poor overall trends could act as an "overhang" (7/10/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Five Below, Inc. is a specialty value retailer offering merchandise for teen and pre-teen customers in the United States. The Company offers products all priced at $5 and below, including select brands and licensed merchandise across a range of categories, which it refers to as worlds: Style, Room, Sports, Media, Crafts, Party, Candy and Seasonal. It offers a wide variety of merchandise that includes everything from sporting goods, games, fashion accessories and jewelry, to hobbies and collectibles, bath and body, candy and snacks, room décor and storage, stationery and school supplies, video game accessories, books, DVDs, iPhone accessories, novelty and seasonal items. Five Below, Inc. is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. " (5/23/2017)
  • 3. Deutsche Bank AG analysts commented, "Tgt USD40 to USD48. With 1Q guidance better than feared and the long-term growth algorithm intact (FY17 EPS growth expected to be up 20%-25%), shares are up meaningfully after the close. We expect FIVE to continue to benefit from new store growth (will enter the state of California at the end of 1Q); enhanced merchandising and sourcing capabilities; and marketing initiatives (will utilize TV in 2Q and 4Q), but are cautious on 1Q as comp guidance (flat to up 2%) implies an acceleration on a two-year stack basis at the mid-point, which has not been achieved since 4Q15. However, management was upbeat regarding emerging trends as well as the company's Easter set. We continue to view FIVE favorably in the long-term as a unique sq. ft. story leading to 20%+ EPS growth, but see valuation as full." (3/23/2017)
  • 4. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We reiterate our Buy on FIVE ahead of 4Q earnings on March 22. Bottom line, we have never seen the shares this compelling since the IPO. As shown in Exhibit 1, they have undergone significant multiple contraction over the past four years as earnings have consistently grown and the shares have remained stuck in the upper $30's, except for two runs to $50-plus. At the same time, the company's ability to grow both sales and EBITDA by 20% or better has become increasingly rare (Exhibit 2). As detailed in Exhibit 3, our $52 PT implies a reasonable EBITDA multiple (13x) on 2018E." (3/20/2017)
