What are Wall Street analysts saying about Best Buy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Best Buy stock:
  • 1. Wedbush analysts commented, "JCP reports 1Q results BMO on 5/21. The company was not immune to the cold weather/ calendar shift headwinds and we expect soft metrics overall with possible offset on merchandise margin pressure after clearing non-core and low-margin merchandise in 4Q. The company started 1Q with inventory down 13%, considerably lower than sales that were down 8% in 4Q. We do not expect a significant contribution to sales from exiting the major appliance business because inventory was limited to floor samples. Our checks indicate that the majority of the floor samples in categories were sold and the floor space re-purposed." (5/17/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Best Buy’s extensive investments to upgrade operations with special focus on developing omni-channel capabilities, supply chain and cost reduction opportunities coupled with strengthening partnership with vendors bode well. The company’s “Best Buy 2020: Building the New Blue” program aims to explore growth opportunities and optimize cost. These efforts have helped the stock to outpace the industry in the past three months and continue post upbeat results, as evident from fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 performance. This prompted management to provide an encouraging fiscal 2020 view. Going forward management sees opportunity in areas including lease-to-own program, mobile devices, smart home technology and digital health. However, higher cost of investments in technology and wages and increased transportation costs may hurt margins. Best Buy expects SG&A expenses to rise in the low single-digits in fiscal 2020."
