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 year. 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 second quarter. Of late, estimates have been stable." (7/31/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are encouraged by the fifth straight quarter of positive comps, driven by momentum in Old Navy and the return to positive comps in the Banana Republic division. We would also note Athleta continues to perform well. Old Navy continues to be the main driver of growth at the company and 4Q sales increased 13% to >$2bn and FY17 net sales surpassed $7bn. Consumers continue to react favorably to the Old Navy’s value offering and both stores and online performed well in FY17. The company believes the brand is underpenetrated vs. peers and will look to double the number of store openings in 2018 (>30 new stores in 2017). Athleta brand growth accelerated in the back-half of 2017 from +MT% in 1H17 to mid-20% growth in the back half of the year. We view the Athleta brand favorably given its position at the intersection of health and wellness. All three nameplates again outpaced U.S." (3/2/2018)
