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. JWN reported 2Q18 EPS of $0.95, above our est, on a better-than-expected comp result (+4%), with gross margin aided by new revenue recognition standards. The new standard recognizes in-transit sales at shipment (rather than deferred); the impact this year was elevated due to a high volume of e-commerce sales at the end of the quarter (+100bps to sales growth; +$30mn to gross profit, or ~75bps, by our estimates). Management expects this to reverse in 3Q. Net sales rose 7.1% to $3.98bn (vs. our +4% est). Gross margin was up 90bps (vs. our -10bps estimate) and SG&A expense as a percentage of revenue increased 65bps (vs. our +10bps). Credit revenue rose 14.5% to $87mn, in line. Operating income of $246mn was above our estimate of $223mn." (8/16/2018)
  • 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)
