(5/21/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Estee Lauder has surpassed the industry over a year, courtesy of focus on buyouts and product launches; strength in emerging markets; and solid growth in travel retail and online business. These factors helped the company to mark its 14th and 4th straight earnings and sales beat, respectively in second-quarter fiscal 2018, wherein both top and bottom lines grew year over year. Results gained from solid cost savings and contributions from BECCA and Too Faced. Sturdy growth in travel retail and online channels also drove performance. Notably, the company witnessed strength in most geographic regions and categories — with skin care and makeup standing out. Continued growth opportunities in the global prestige beauty industry, along with expected gains from tax reforms also led to a raised view. However, weak gross margin and soft U.S. retail traffic remain hurdles. Macroeconomic issues that could affect consumer spending also pose threats."
