What are Wall Street analysts saying about Foot Locker stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Foot Locker stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We feel like 2Q19 was a mixed bag, with the puts/takes likely adding up to an in-line quarter. Probably the best news for FL is that, unlike many other retailers, the company has minimal weather exposure, so unforeseen margin pressure seems unlikely. We suspect that running was FL’s strongest comping footwear category, driven by solid Nike Air Max performance, the releases of a sequential uptick in adidas Boost. We also suspect that casual footwear was positive, albeit not as strong as last quarter, as Yeezy likely performed well, but Champion appear to have slowed." (8/20/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We were disappointed with today’s result and are refining our estimates/ lowering our price target to reflect a more muted outlook. However, we would use today’s share price weakness (-16% vs. S&P 500 up slightly) as an incremental opportunity to accumulate shares as we continue to believe valuation remains attractive (shares trade at ~9x our FY19E EPS) given our expectations for ~MSD% comp and EPS growth in FY19E. We are maintaining our BUY rating, but lower our PT to $60 from $75. After finishing FY18 with an impressive +9.7% in 4Q, FL drove +4.6% comp growth in 1Q19. While FL’s comp was one of the strongest in our group so far, it was below our expectations. Additionally, gross margin expansion was softer than expected, while the SG&A rate deleveraged at a more pronounced rate." (5/24/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Foot Locker have risen and outpaced the industry in a year's time. The company’s focus on development of supply chain, improvement of mobile and web platforms, implementation of new point-of-sale software worldwide, and expansion of data analytics capabilities bode well. The company also plans to spend a major portion of the capital on its fleet of stores, including revamping and remodeling of the same. Such efforts would help attain long-term goals that include sales of $10 billion and net income margin of 8.5%. The company’s third-quarter fiscal 2018 results are the testimony of the same, wherein both the top and bottom lines beat estimates. Although sales fell marginally, earnings grew on a year-over-year basis. However, the comapny has been witnessing an increasing trend in SG&A expenses for quite some time now. Management expects SG&A to rise in the fourth quarter that may strain margins to an extent." (2/4/2019)
