What are Wall Street analysts saying about AutoZone stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about AutoZone stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In third-quarter fiscal 2019, AutoZone’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Compared with the prior-year quarter, earnings per share and revenues witnessed growth. This rise was backed by growing market presence of the company’s DIY retail and commercial (DIFM) businesses. Further, its fast deliveries, high-quality products and store merchandising are expected to drive revenues in the rest of fiscal 2019. Moreover, it often opens stores and distribution centers to improve market coverage. Also, strong cash flow enables AutoZone to frequently repurchase shares. However, rising capital and operating expenses and increasing the frequency of deliveries are hurting the company’s bottom line. Dependence on the weather for product sales is another headwind." (6/7/2019)
  • 2. 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)
