What are Wall Street analysts saying about Best Buy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Best Buy stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Best Buy have increased and outpaced the industry year to date given its robust earnings trend. The company’s earnings not only beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the seventh straight quarter but also rose year-over-year when it reported second-quarter fiscal 2020 results. Also, management raised the earnings view for fiscal 2020.  Moving on, Best Buy’s focus on developing omnichannel capabilities, supply chain and cost containment efforts along with strengthening partnerships with vendors bode well. However, potential effects of tariffs and volatile consumer spending led management to narrow its sales projection for the fiscal.  Further, higher expenses stemming from GreatCall is a threat to margins. Additionally, continued sluggishness in international segment on account of adverse currency fluctuations remains a concern." (11/7/2019)
  • 2. 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)
