What are Wall Street analysts saying about GAP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GAP stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We’re encouraged by Gap’s continued push into Value (Old Navy) and Active (Athleta). Despite this, we remain NEUTRAL due to Gap brand results remaining soft, GPS beginning to cycle difficult compares in 2H18, and the company’s significant mall exposure. Net sales increased 8% to $4.1bn (excluding the $139mn relating to the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard, net sales increased 4%) including a +2% comp (+3% two-year stacked; flat QoQ). We are encouraged by the seventh straight quarter of positive comps, driven by a positive result at the continuation of positive comps at Banana Republic. Athleta also continues to perform well, with bottoms (~50% of the assortment) driving a +HT% comp in the quarter. Digital momentum continued, and the company remains on track to generate ~$3.5bn in online sales in FY18." (8/24/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gap has outperformed the industry in the past month. Notably, its growth strategy focused on growing the Old Navy and Athleta brands looks promising. Moreover, the company’s efforts to boost digital and mobile offerings, alongside improving product acceptance bode well. The company has an impressive surprise history as it delivered earnings beat in four of the last five quarters. Also, it marked sixth straight positive sales surprise in first-quarter fiscal 2018. Further, comps improved for the sixth straight quarter due to continued strength at Old Navy and growth at Banana Republic. However, the company is witnessing softness across its namesake brand due to operational issues related to timing of inventory, breadth of the product assortment and shortage of gaps in certain categories. These factors are likely to continue hurting the brand’s comps in the fiscal second quarter." (8/21/2018)
