What are analysts saying about Gap, Inc. (The) stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gap, Inc. (The) stock:
- Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "GPS reported comparable sales of +1%, slightly below expectations for 2.1%, but shares edged higher after yesterday's close given increased EPS guidance. The Gap brand has now reported two consecutive months of positive comparable sales, and we see an inflection forming. In addition, Old Navy remained positive, with comparable sales up 2%. Banana Republic continues to struggle though and we think management needs to take action." (2/7/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gap, which has clearly outperformed the broader industry over the past one year, recently posted solid comps for the 2016 holiday season. Comps benefited from the company’s solid strategies and favorable customer response for its namesake and Old Navy brands. Further, the robust holiday performance encouraged management to raise its fiscal 2016 earnings view, to slightly above its previously guided range. This has also caused an uptrend in estimates ahead of the company’s fourth-quarter earnings. Apart from these factors, we commend Gap’s focus on accelerating its transformation plan, by reasonably altering its product portfolio and operating capabilities worldwide. Also, the company’s endeavors to expand its omni-channel reach remain on track. However, macroeconomic headwinds like volatile consumer behavior remain threats for the company. Stiff competition from other players can also weigh upon Gap’s performance." (2/2/2017)
FBR & Co analysts commented, "GPS reported 3Q16 EPS of $0.60, in line with FBR/consensus of $0.60, which excludes a $0.09 negative impact associated with previously announced store closures and streamlining measures and was in line with $0.59–$0.60 EPS guidance provided on November 7 during GPS’s October SSS call. The –3% comp for 3Q was primarily driven by the negative impact from the Fishkill distribution center fire. Management reiterated 2016 EPS of $1.87–$1.92 even though 3Q16 was better than expected, implying a lower 4Q16 versus consensus. Management is cautious on 4Q given a fall off in traffic throughout November and additional expenses related to occupancy for the new Times Square flagship, lapping bonus reversals LY , and additional marketing expense." (11/18/2016)
J P Morgan Chase & Co analysts commented, "Following calendar 2Q16 earnings reports from the three pharmaceutical distributors over the past two weeks, we are raising our Dec-2016 price target for McKesson to $221 from $210, with our new target representing ~13% upside from yesterday’s close. Recall that we had raised our Dec- 2016 price targets for both Cardinal Health (CAH/N) and AmerisourceBergen (ABC/N) last week following their calendar 2Q earnings reports. With all three companies reporting calendar 2Q EPS upside versus consensus, and the forward outlooks remaining intact, we cite improving sentiment on the group. Further, we will begin to cycle the tougher comps related to generic inflation in the next two quarters, which should contribute to improving y/y earnings growth trends." (8/9/2016)
