What are analysts saying about Ross Stores stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ross Stores stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ross Stores has outperformed the broader industry in the past one year, given its positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. Further, the company raised its earnings forecast for fiscal 2016 on the back of solid year-to-date results. The company has been gaining from the favorable response of value-focused customers to its extensive collection of brand bargains and solid cost controls. Further, the company’s solid financial status, ongoing merchandise initiatives and consistent focus on store expansion bode well.  We applaud the company’s merchandise organization initiatives as well as its ability to run the business with leaner inventory levels. However, challenges related to strong comparisons, amid macroeconomic uncertainty and a volatile retail landscape are expected to hurt fourth quarter results. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company's fourth quarter earnings release." (1/27/2017)
