What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ross Stores stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ross Stores stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain BUY rated and would use any weakness in shares as an incremental opportunity to accumulate; our price target is $105. ROST reported 1Q19 EPS of $1.15, above our estimate of $1.12, including a 2% comp sales gain (in line with our estimate). Total revenue was up 5.8% to $3.8bn (in line with our estimate). The comp sales increase in the quarter was led by an increase in basket size (with units up and AUR down slightly). Traffic was impacted by the softness in Ladies apparel, per mgmt. Gross margin was down 85bps (vs. our -70bps estimate), and SG&A expense deleveraged 10bps (better than our 50bps estimate), resulting in a ~100bps operating margin decline (vs. our -120bps estimate)." (5/24/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ross Stores boasts a robust surprise trend, having delivered 11th consecutive earnings beat in fourth-quarter fiscal 2018, with 10 positive sales surprises in 11 quarters. Moreover, its commitment to price management, merchandise initiatives, cost containment and store expansion bode well. Further, the recently raised dividend and new share buyback program highlight its balance sheet strength and ability to generate cash to fund growth initiatives. However, the company lagged the industry in the past three months owing to expectations of higher freight costs and wage investments in fiscal 2019, which have been hurting margins for a while. These headwinds hurt operating margin and led to higher cost of goods sold and SG&A expenses, in fourth-quarter fiscal 2018. This along with expectations of difficult comparisons, a competitive landscape and macroeconomic headwinds led to a soft outlook for the first quarter and fiscal 2019." (5/13/2019)
