What are Wall Street analysts saying about GAP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GAP stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gap has outperformed the industry in the past three months, driven by impressive earnings in fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 and announcement of spin-off plans. We expect, the company’s plans to spin off into two public companies, Old Navy and NewCo, to strategically focus on growth initiatives and improve operating efficiency, to aid growth. Moreover, the company has been making constant efforts to boost digital and mobile offerings alongside improving product acceptance. However, persistent softness across its namesake brand, which continued in the fiscal fourth quarter and hurt comps, remains concern. This, along with adverse currency translations affected the company’s top line that lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate after surpassing the same in the previous eight quarters. Further, management issued a bleak earnings view for fiscal 2019. Nevertheless, comps are anticipated to be flat to up slightly." (5/13/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe the transaction will create value for shareholders and we await more details of the separation, which is expected to close in 2020. We applaud management’s unique approach towards unlocking shareholder value through the separation of the strong-performer, Old Navy. While we are encouraged by management’s decision, we note the soft performance across the company in the quarter. We maintain our NEUTRAL rating." (3/1/2019)
