What are Wall Street analysts saying about Advance Auto Parts stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Advance Auto Parts stock:
  • 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We are inclined to view the partnership favorably as it provides AAP with a new channel to expand its customer base with little incremental capital, while leveraging its vast and underutilized supply chain. We estimate AAP to have ~1% share of the $9­10B online auto parts market today, or well under­indexed vs. its ~6% share of the $160B total U.S. auto parts (DIY + DIFM) industry. We view this partnership as the first step towards AAP taking its fair share online, and see a $500M+ revenue opportunity (should AAP reach 6% online penetration). WMT’s national footprint of 3,500+ Supercenters could help AAP reach underpenetrated markets (i.e. West Coast) to help improve brand awareness, and add additional points of distribution for a vast and disparate supply chain." (10/16/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Advance Auto Parts is focusing to expand its footprint by opening stores, widening online presence and collaborations. Further, to meet the evolving need of the customers, Advance Auto Parts is streamlining its supply chain and is opting for store transformation and inventory positioning. Also, its past investments and reduction in material costs are driving the company’s gross margin. It has also outlined a five-year strategy to remove unnecessary costs up to $750 million within a span of four to five years. In the last three months, shares of the company have outperformed the industry it belongs to. However, huge capital expenditure and price competition are concerns for Advance Auto Parts." (8/9/2018)
