What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nordstrom stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nordstrom stock: 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain NEUTRAL. While the comp result in 3Q was solid, we are mindful of softer full-price trends and a difficult 4Q comparison upcoming. The full-price business delivered a 0.4% comp, impacted in part by returns from the Anniversary Sale last quarter, slowing from +1% in 1Q and +4% in 2Q. The off-price business performed well as the company continues to focus on improving turns and improving the assortment (+0.4% in 1Q and +4% in 2Q). Digital remained strong, growing 20% (30% of the total). We forecast a slight positive result in 4Q (+0.5% comp, on a 3.5% point more difficult comparison) and continue to forecast a +LSD total comp sales increase in 2018 (around ~2% for the FY)." (11/15/2018) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nordstrom outperformed the industry in the last six months driven by the smooth execution of customer strategy and disciplined inventory management. The company has an impressive surprise history with earnings beat delivered in seven of the last eight quarters and topping sales estimates in three of the trailing four quarters. Results in first-quarter fiscal 2018 gained from the shift in Nordstrom’s loyalty event to the quarter compared with the second quarter in the prior year. Management raised the low-end of its EBIT and earnings views for fiscal 2018. Also, its focus on store expansion and strengthening capabilities through further investments, particularly in digital growth, remains noteworthy. However, investments toward occupancy, technology, supply chain and marketing are weighing on its margin performance for the last few quarters. Higher expenses have been resulting in higher SG&A expense, which is hurting profitability." (5/21/2018) Has Nordstrom been receiving favorable news coverage?
