What are analysts saying about J C Penney Company stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about J C Penney Company stock:

  • 1. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "JCP's stock traded down 5.8% following a 4Q16 EPS print ex-items of $0.64 that exceeded expectations (BMO $0.59/consensus $0.61), but benefited from a lower tax rate ($0.04) and $63 million of asset gains, leaving market participants disappointed with the earnings quality, albeit management had discussed potential asset sales. More important, the 2017 EBITDA target of $1.2 billion was walked down to $1.1 billion and now includes ~$100 million in asset gains; inventory looks elevated, albeit 2017 inventory is expected to decline 5%; and core apparel trends remain challenging." (2/27/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "J. C. Penney, shares have been bearing the brunt of dismal holiday sales numbers. The stock has declined over 28% in the past three months. The company’s comparable store sales declined 0.8% during the November and December period combined. The decline was primarily due to the impact of challenging retail landscape, stiff competition from online retailers and waning store traffic. The company stated that the first three weeks of November were especially challenging. During the holiday season the company saw robust performance from appliances, boots, outerwear, fine jewelry and Sephora. However, sustained weakness in women’s apparel marred the overall performance. Nevertheless, in order to augment customer shopping experience, it has been focusing on remodeling, renovating and refurbishing its stores with special focus on enhancing high-margin center core department." (2/22/2017)
  • 3. Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "We hosted investor meetings with Marvin Ellison, CEO; Ed Record, EVP CFO; Mike Robbins, EVP Supply Chain; John Tighe, EVP Chief Merchant; and Trent Kruse, Investor Relations at J.C. Penny’s headquarters in Dallas, TX, as well as a tour of the JCP Stonebriar Centre store. Multiple levers to achieve L-T financial targets: Management’s key message stressed it has a variety pathways to achieve its 2016 and 2017 $1B and $1.2B+ EBITDA goals, even if comps decelerate to +2% (vs. 2015+4.5% and 2016 +3-4% guidance). This reflects ~150-175 bps potential GM upside (vs. 2015 36% GM) and further opportunity to reduce SG&A, although we expect the pace of future expense cuts to moderate (please see details below). Near-term, based on our store checks and department store tracker department store tracker, 1Q likely started off strong but decelerated in March across the industry (Feb +0.4% vs. March -1.9% y/y estimate). Moreover, we think 1H sales growth may be slower vs. 2H16, as management sees more back-half weighted top-line catalysts, such as a greater number of Sephora openings (~30 in late 1Q16 and ~30 in June 2016) and completed center core remodels (~350 by the end of 2Q16 vs. ~75 today)."
