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 benefits from solid focus on buyouts, travel retail network, effective launches and strong online sales. These factors helped the company retain its robust record in first-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein earnings and sales grew year over year and beat estimates for the 17th and seventh straight time, respectively. While earnings gained from robust sales and the Leading Beauty Forward initiative, revenues were fueled by strength across most regions, brands and product categories. Further, the company gained from solid travel retail and online sales growth, which are major long-term drivers. Also, estimates have improved by a penny in the past thirty days, ahead of second quarter earnings release. However, a tough macroeconomic landscape owing to various store closures, tariff impacts and Brexit related concerns pose hurdles. These factors have weighed on the stock, which declined in the past six months." (2/6/2019) 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."
