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 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)
  • 2. 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)
