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."

Consensus Ratings for Chico's FAS (NYSE:CHS) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
