What are Wall Street analysts saying about Nordstrom stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Nordstrom stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Nordstrom lagged the industry in the past month due to the company’s credit-card interest-related error, which hurt investor sentiments despite an otherwise strong third-quarter fiscal 2018. The company estimates to refund less than 4% of its cardholders amounts less than $100. Further, its higher cost of investments for occupancy, technology, supply chain and marketing initiatives are denting margins. Higher SG&A expense may also weigh on profitability. Nonetheless, the company boasts a robust surprise history, courtesy of smooth execution of its customer strategy. Earnings surpassed estimates in nine of the last 10 quarters, while it delivered positive sales surprise in five of the last six quarters. Results gained from higher sales, lower tax rate, comps growth and solid execution across both full-price and off-price businesses. Its focus on store expansion, loyalty program and investments in digital growth remain noteworthy." (11/19/2018)
  • 2. 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)."
