What are Wall Street analysts saying about AutoZone stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AutoZone stock: 1. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "Helped by 5% growth in VOI sales, WYND reported 4Q18 further adjusted EBITDA of $240M, compared to our/Street’s estimates of $239M/$240M. Tours saw a 2% YoY increase while VPG improved 3% and provision for loan losses of 19.3% remained flat YoY. FY2019 guidance calls for revenues of $4,120M-$4,220M (+6% YoY), vs. our/ Street’s $4,143M/$4,157M and adjusted EBITDA of $995M-$1,015M (+5% YoY), vs. our/Street’s $1,025M/$1006M. First-quarter 2019 could see modest revenue growth, as tour growth in 1Q19 (1%-2% YoY) will be soft—new sales centers ramping in 2Q-3Q—and lower exchange revenue per member. We adjust our 2019E EBITDA to $1,005M from $1,025M. Maintain Outperform." (2/26/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Of late, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for AutoZone’s fiscal 2019 is moving up. The company’s revenue is driven by both Do-It-Yourself (DIY) retail and commercial (DIFM) businesses. For fiscal 2019, AutoZone is expected to witness year-over-year growth on the back of new programs in commercial business, store openings and improving online presence. Moreover, it frequently opens new stores and distribution centers to improve market coverage. Over the past three months, shares of AutoZone have outperformed the industry it belongs to. However, continuous rise in capital and operating expenses due to frequent opening of distribution centers and wage expenses are concerns for AutoZone."
