What are Wall Street analysts saying about Hibbett Sports stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Hibbett Sports stock:
  • 1. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are buyers of HIBB heading into FQ2 results on Friday, August 24 BMO. Our 9c EPS estimate is 2c ahead of consensus as we are modeling slightly higher revenue growth of +15.4% on +6% comp (vs. +14% consensus on +6% comp), higher gross margin of 31.6% (vs. 31.4% consensus) and lower SG&A margin of 27.3% (vs. 27.9% consensus) relative to the Street. We believe our recovery thesis is well on track and Q2 will be reflective of this progress. Our industry checks and discussions with management indicate that the inventory mix continued to improve in Q2, which should translate into a significant upward comp inflection (on an easy -11.7% comparison) and strong gross margin recapture (vs. -400bps)." (8/17/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hibbett lagged the industry in the past month due to dismal first-quarter fiscal 2019 results and strained margins trend. Both earnings and sales missed estimates in the fiscal first-quarter while the top line also declined year over year. Earnings were hurt by soft margins and higher SG&A expenses, whereas sales dropped due to soft comps. Moreover, the company’s soft margins trend continued in the first quarter. Gross margin were hurt by higher sales of clearance merchandise and freight related with e-commerce sales, while higher SG&A expenses took a toll on operating margin. The company expects easier gross margin comparisons in the second quarter due to the week shift caused by the 53rd week last year. However, the shift is likely to impact gross margins in the third quarter. Nonetheless, Hibbett remains positioned to gain from the growth of omni-channel capabilities, renewed loyalty program and inventory management initiatives." (5/30/2018)
