What are analysts saying about Abercrombie & Fitch Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Abercrombie & Fitch Company stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Abercrombie outperformed the industry year to date driven by strategic capital investments, cost saving efforts, loyalty and marketing programs gaining traction. It posted solid quarterly results in a long time as both top and bottom-line beat in second-quarter fiscal 2017. This was Abercrombie’s first positive earnings surprise in last six quarters, following in-line results in first-quarter. Sales topped for the second straight quarter. The quarter marked a significant progress on its strategic initiatives and reflected strength in Hollister and direct-to-customer businesses. The company also provided an encouraging view for fiscal 2017 and the fiscal second half. Additionally, it expects foreign currency to be a tailwind going forward, reflecting slight gains in sales and operating income. However, Abercrombie’s namesake brand continued to weigh on performance. Moreover, margins remain strained due to a highly promotional backdrop." (9/12/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "ANF reported 1Q EPS of ($0.91), versus FBR/consensus of ($0.68)/($0.70), including an impact from new stock option changes of $0.14. Management expects SSS to continue to be challenging in 2Q17, although they are expected to improve in the back half of 2017. A&F is expected to be the most challenged, while Hollister should continue to perform well. Both brands are benefiting from newly rolled out loyalty programs and omni-channel investments. Although we are encouraged by ANF’s omni-channel and brand initiatives, we remain on the sidelines until we see consistent SSS improvement and an inflection in margins." (5/26/2017)
  • 3. UBS AG analysts commented, "ANF reported 4Q EPS of $0.75 (UBS $0.89; Street $0.75), with EBIT at $61m (UBSe: $102m; Street $79m). SSS declined -5% (UBSe -5.5%, Street -5.4%) with A&F SSS - 13% and Hollister SSS +1%. GM was worse than feared at -130bp YOY (vs UBSe - 25bp), while SG&A delevered by +425bp (UBSe +100bp, partly due to ~$15.6m flagship lease termination)." (3/3/2017)
  • 4. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "ANF Shares Pop on Outlook for Comp to Improve...but high short interest ~26% of float, likely helped drive some upside. We are encouraged by momentum at Hollister (4Q comps +1%), and believe management team is talented. However, A&F brand is likely still on a journey, and store base will likely need to continue to shrink to drive productivity. Reiterate Market Perform; we lower our PT to $14." (3/3/2017)
  • 5. Mizuho analysts commented, "We have adjusted our estimates and reduced our PT to $14 from $15 to incorporate the weak 1Q guide and the unexpected SG&A savings of ~$100mm that likely led to today's short covering (~26% short interest coming into the print). While we are encouraged by improved earnings visibility from unexpected cost efficiency as well as management's willingness to continue evaluating the store fleet (50% of leases up for negotiations), we remain concerned given Spring weakness and the long road ahead to turn A&F. While easier compares and product changes may aid 2H acceleration, we question the pace and degree of improvements and model A&F comps to turn positive in FY18." (3/2/2017)
