What are analysts saying about Guess? stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Guess? posted better-than-expected second-quarter fiscal 2018 results and has also raised its view for the fiscal year. Both earnings and revenues surged 26.7% and 5.3%, respectively from the prior-year period. Earnings mainly benefited from increased margins and revenues across its segments. The upside in revenues came on the back of solid sales at its Europe and Asia segments. Moreover, comps in Europe and Asia had also risen, owing to new store openings. Management also remains optimistic about its e-Commerce business that has been improving steadily. Moreover the company has been undertaking cost saving initiatives through improved supply chain management. Consequent to such factors, shares of Guess? outperformed the industry in the last three months. Nevertheless, the company has been facing macroeconomic challenges in the U.S. and Canada, owing to lower consumer spending and has hence resorted to store closures in these regions." (8/25/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We are reiterating our Buy rating, estimates, and $16 price target with GUESS? scheduled to announce F2Q18 (July) results after the close on Wednesday, August 23. We believe, once again, that the split between international and domestic operations will be stark, with international remaining strong and the domestic division continuing to fade. Further, with the USD weakening since the last guide, we expect that the potential for upside in 2Q, but more importantly the back half of FY18, will be materially increasing." (8/21/2017)
  • 3. 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)
  • 4. 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)
