What are analysts saying about Chico's FAS stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Chico's FAS stock:

  • 1. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We hosted upbeat meetings with Chief Financial Officer Todd Vogensen, VP of Investor Relations Julie Lorigan and VP of Financial Planning and Analysis Jennifer Ellis last week at B. Rileys’s consumer conference in NYC. Management is being proactive in reevaluating its cost structure, which we expect to continue to benefit the bottom line, and implementing omni channel capabilities, though the overall traffic environment continues to be a headwind. When CHS reported 2Q EPS in August we believe performance sequentially improved 3QTD from 2Q (3Q SSS guidance is -LSD vs -8% 2Q comp) and we believe better performance has continued (excluding any hurricane impact) as products are resonating better with consumers. Note though August is traditionally a transitional month and smallest of the quarter. We also believe that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma will have a ~1% impact on 3Q performance as 325 stores were closed. While there will likely continue to be environmental pressure in the short term, we expect topline to continue to improve in 2H with better product resulting in significant margin upside with cost-cutting/ operational initiatives." (10/2/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "CHICO'S FAS, INC. is a specialty retailer of exclusively designed, private label casual clothing and related accessories. Each store offers collections of color coordinated tops, pants, shorts, skirts, jumpsuits, dresses, vests, jackets, outerwear, socks and accessories, including leather and fabric belts, scarves, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. " (8/23/2017)
  • 3. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are raising our estimates and PT to $17 (based on 17x our FY18 EPS estimate of $1.00) following a strong 4Q beat that demonstrates solid execution despite a challenging Holiday retail environment. Importantly, the company demonstrated progress on improving overall profitability by reducing promotions to increase gross margin while simultaneously shedding costs within the organization. We expect a similar dynamic in FY17 with plans for ~50-100 bp of gross margin expansion and $50m in cost savings which should give investors confidence in the 2019 goal of a +DD operating margin from 6.9% in FY16."
