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 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gap underperformed the industry in the past year owing to persistent softness at its namesake brand and a bleak outlook for fiscal 2018. Comps for the Gap brand have consistently been weak due to operational headwinds across its business and assortment issues. This, in turn, hurt its overall comps, which were flat in third-quarter fiscal 2018. While management remains focused on reviving the Gap brand and expects sequential progress, it still expects the brand’s results to be down in fiscal 2018. Consequently, management lowered the higher-end of earnings guidance for fiscal 2018. Nevertheless, comps are anticipated to be flat to up slightly in fiscal 2018. Moreover, the company has been making constant efforts to boost digital and mobile offerings alongside improving product acceptance. Further, its surprise trend remains impressive, with earnings beat in six of the trailing seven quarters and sales beat in eight straight quarters." (1/23/2019)
