What are analysts saying about Guess? stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Guess? stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Guess' have underperformed the industry in the past one year. We note that the company is witnessing lower store traffic in North America for the past few quarters. In addition, currency headwinds and higher expenses are also putting pressure on the company’s margins and profits. Further, the company is finding it difficult to keep pace with the fashion-conscious consumers as “change is the only constant” for this industry. However, management is taking several cost-cutting and supply chain initiatives to boost its top line. Further, the company's strong e-Commerce business remains encouraging. Notably, the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 31 cents for the first-quarter fiscal 2018 has narrowed by a penny in the last seven days." (5/22/2017)
  • 2. Cowen and Company analysts commented, "We struggle to forecast GES financials. We are lowering our estimates and reducing our price target to $10 from $16, reflecting 5x EV/EBITDA and 0.3x EV/Sales. We see risk to the dividend ($77MM annual payment) given only $396MM remains on the balance sheet. Value creation needs to come from Europe (36% of sales) and Asia (11% of sales) as the brand faces structural challenges in N. America." (3/16/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "GES delivered a 4Q miss on both the top- and bottom-line, as weakness in the USA continues to weigh on the business. We are encouraged by mgmt's commitment to store footprint reductions and rent negotiations domestically while diverting capital to Europe/Asia where growth and profitability are more visible and sustainable. Maintain Hold, PT to $12." (3/16/2017)
