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 outperformed the industry in the last three months backed by strategic capital investments, cost saving efforts, loyalty and marketing programs gaining traction. The company is also gaining from a robust surprise trend. Notably, the company delivered earnings and sales beat in third-quarter fiscal 2017, marking the second straight positive earnings surprise and the third consecutive sales beat. Further, it remains encouraged by comps performance as it marked the fourth consecutive quarter of sequential improvement. Results gained from significant progress on its strategic initiatives and strength in Hollister as well as direct-to-customer business. Moreover, the company provided an encouraging view for fourth-quarter fiscal 2017. The company expects foreign currency to be a tailwind, reflecting slight gains in sales and operating income. However, the Abercrombie brand as well as strained margins continued to weigh on results." (11/22/2017)
- 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)
- 3. 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)

Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:ANF) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
