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, "Estee Lauder has outperformed the industry in the past year, courtesy of robust sales and earnings history. The company has been gaining from growth across most brands and sales channels. The trend continued in second-quarter fiscal 2020, with the top and the bottom line surpassing estimates and rising year on year. Performance was supported by growth in emerging markets, travel retail and online sales. However, the company is witnessing certain headwinds caused by the recent outbreak of the coronavirus in China and around the world. Additionally, adverse currency movements are expected to negatively impact the company’s performance in fiscal 2020. Moreover, challenges in Hong Kong’s retail environment and tariff impacts in China are a concern. Notably, management lowered sales and earnings guidance for fiscal 2020." (3/20/2020)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We increase our FY20 EPS est. by $0.25 to $6.05 to reflect the FQ4 beat & mgmt’s optimistic FY20 outlook, and our FY21 EPS est to $6.60 and raise our price target by $15 to $190. After today’s sharp positive stock performance (+13% vs. the the stock trading at a 31.6x 15% premium to its 3-yr historical avg), we think most of this strength is priced in. Therefore, we urge investors to hold the stock – maintain Market Perform." (8/19/2019)
