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 is streamlining its supply chain and is opting for store transformation and inventory positioning in order to meet the evolving need of the customers. It is focusing to expand its footprint by opening new stores, widening online presence and strategic collaborations. Earlier in October, the company collaborated with Walmart to create an automotive specialty store on Walmart.com. Also, the company’s stock has outperformed the industry it belongs to, over the past three months." (12/6/2018)
  • 2. 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."
