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 would be remiss not to mention the underwhelming 1H19 performance, with comps falling 4% driven by declines across all three of GPS’ largest brands. Additionally, the comp performance drove substantial margin contraction and EPS declines. While management highlighted numerous initiatives to improve operations across both companies and Athleta remains a standout, given our expectations for a muted top line and continued margin contraction, we remain NEUTRAL-rated until we see evidence of strategies taking hold. Overall, we believe shares are fairly valued today, trading at ~9x our current GPS FY2020 EPS." (9/12/2019)
  • 2. 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)
