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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Advance Auto Parts adjusted earnings grew year over year in the fourth quarter of 2019 but missed the Zacks Consensus Estimates. The firm expects net sales of $9.88-$10.1 billion in 2020, up from prior year’s guidance of $9.65-$9.75 billion. It continues to expand and optimize footprint by opening stores, widening online presence and collaborating. Further, the company is investing in its supply chain capabilities which is expected to accelerate growth. However, increasing costs will likely dent margins if the company is not able to pass the price increases to customers. Moreover, the fact that consumers are opting for new vehicle purchases instead of maintaining old ones can adversely affect the demand for Advance Auto Parts’ products. Hence, investors are recommended to wait for a better entry point." (2/20/2020)
  • 2. Evercore ISI analysts commented, "We are trimming 2H19 EPS -$0.10/-3% ahead of 2Q results on Tuesday, as we incorporate recent labor inflation that has been widespread across retail. After choppy 2Q results are released, the setup for AAP starts to improve. Weather should normalize, and compares begin to ease on a 3 year basis next quarter, with 1Q20 comps more favorable still. Critically company specific comp and margin drivers ought to gain traction on a 12-18 month view, just as a rising 4-12 year old vehicle sweet spot helps provide a comp tailwind for AAP and peers. Tariffs remain a risk for all of retail, yet with 25% tariffs already in place on 90%+ of the auto parts imported from China today, AAP and peers are relatively well positioned on this front. 2Q expectations muted given read across from competitors. 2H19 guidance reduction likely."
