" (2/24/2017)
- 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."
