What are Wall Street analysts saying about Estee Lauder Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Estee Lauder Companies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Though Estee Lauder has been focused on enhancing its advertising and marketing efforts, these efforts entail high costs. Incidentally, the company’s operating expenses, as a percentage of sales expanded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 owing to increased advertising investments to support digital activities. Also, the operating margin contracted 90 basis points during the quarter. Persistence of such trends remains an aspect of worry for Estee Lauder, which has seen its shares decline in the past six months. Apart from this, the company also faces threats from cheaper alternatives may hurt its market share. Nonetheless, robust online and travel retail sales remain major driving factors for the company. Moreover, Estee Lauder is likely to benefit from acquisition synergies. Evidently, the company’s Too Faced buyout bore strong results in the fourth quarter and is expected to perform even better in the next year." (10/1/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We visited a very crowded HERA (Korean brand) pop-up store right next to an Estee Lauder counter. However, overall we liked what we saw in China for EL & reiterate our Outperform rating on the stock given increased confidence that EL is poised for robust (likely +DD) growth in China for the m.t. to l.t."
