What are Wall Street analysts saying about Abercrombie & Fitch stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Abercrombie & Fitch stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Abercrombie surpassed the industry year to date driven by its strategic capital investments, cost-saving efforts, loyalty and marketing programs gaining traction. It is also gaining from a robust surprise trend. The company delivered narrower-than-expected loss per share in first-quarter fiscal 2018, while top line beat estimate. Notably, this was the fourth straight positive bottom line surprise and fifth consecutive sales beat. Results gained from strong performance across all brands, effective marketing and growing consumer confidence, alongside robust comps, gross margin growth and expense leverage. Moreover, currency tailwinds aided results. Going forward, the company focuses on improving customer experience by investing in loyalty programs, stores, DTC and omni-channel capabilities. However, the company estimates operating expense to increase nearly 2% from the fiscal 2017 level, versus the prior guidance of 1% increase." (8/13/2018)
  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "self-inflicted factors," Boss wrote. The problem is management "sees no silver bullets" to drive a sustainable growth ahead and as SG&A efficiencies and other cost-saving programs will merely "fund the rising cost of relevance."The topic of going private was also discussed in the meeting. Management acknowledged it has been approached by "more than one potential suitor" to go private but the board believes that staying a public company was "a better course of action to invest in the process at hand and drive shareholder value," the analyst also said."ANF's earnings power going forward is increasingly dependent on the company's ability to drive positive comps which appears increasingly too difficult in the worsening retail backdrop," Boss wrote. "We are not convinced that ANF will see an inflection point in comps on a sustainable basis and see consistent EBITDA declines for the years ahead." (11/1/2017)
