What are analysts saying about Urban Outfitters stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Urban Outfitters stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Urban Outfitter shares have taken a sharp U-turn following better-than-expected second-quarter fiscal 2018 results for the first time in trailing four quarters. The bullish run in the stock price helped it to outpace the industry in the past three months. New store openings, increase in direct penetration, growing wholesale operations, technology advancements and merchandising improvements bode well for the long term. Management is also making all possible efforts to enhance the performance of brands through store refurbishment and by bringing in more compelling assortments. However, along with top and bottom line, comparable retail segment net sales also fell for the reported quarter. Moreover, management’s remark over gross margin, which is anticipated to decline year over year in the third quarter due to rise in delivery as well as de-leverage in store occupancy expenditures is a major concern for investors." (10/17/2017)
  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "URBN's 4Q EPS of 55c was slight miss vs. Street's 56c, primarily on lower GM (-140bp vs. St. -100bp). Shares could trade down HSD today on decelerating sales trend towards end of 4Q, & 1Q GM is expected to be down similarly to 4Q. UO & Anthro store bases are at about saturation (199 & 210 stores, respectively), and DTC/bricks penetration could reach 50:50 in next 3 years." (3/8/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "2016 saw pressure in Anthro, margins compress in 2H, and some tail-off to UO's top line at year end. BUT' The company has high DTC penetration, is understored relative to peers, and is differentiated in the marketplace. With more balanced inventories, strength in DTC, and easy compares, we see a very favorable setup for URBN in 2H17." (3/8/2017)
  • 4. Wedbush analysts commented, "URBN executives spent portions of the call hind-sighting 4Q16 results, discussing the volatility of current macro conditions, and recapping secular issues related to the continued impact of sales shifting to digital. Overall, the tone suggests similar trends from 4Q are likely to continue through at least 1H17. These trends include lower IMU and higher markdowns at U.O. and Anthro, continued margin pressure from channel shift to direct-to-consumer, and continued outperformance of non-apparel categories. Additionally, store opening cadence tilts toward 1H17, which puts additional pressure on the P&L, likely driving back half-weighted growth in 2017. Valuation remains supportive, but we have yet to identify a compelling near-term catalyst. We remain NEUTRAL." (3/8/2017)
  • 5. Instinet analysts commented, "Forecasting a 50%/50% ecomm/store split in three years, URBN continues to acknowledge the ongoing retail transformation, while stressing its margineroding implications and not trying to convince others (or themselves) that business will go on as usual. In this new normal, it is encouraging that URBN is not facing a material string of store closures; however, with persisting GM pressures and ongoing opex deleverage, coupled with impairments for one-off locations, we believe URBN is better off, but not insulated from the retail pressures." (3/8/2017)
