What are Wall Street analysts saying about Michael Kors stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Michael Kors stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the past three months, shares of Michael Kors has not only declined but also underperformed the industry. We note that the company is witnessing soft Wholesale & Licensing Revenue for a while now. This is likely to likely to persist throughout fiscal 2019. Also, its efforts to heavily invest in new store openings, expanding the existing outlets, expansion of international operations, digital flagships and global infrastructure is weighing on operating margins. Moreover, management’s bottom line projection for second quarter fiscal 2019 came below analyst expectations. Nevertheless, the company has been constantly deploying resources to expand product offerings, build shop-in-shops, and upgrade distribution infrastructure. This along with the Runway 2020 plan, cost containment efforts, inventory management and focus on e-commerce platform bode well." (10/16/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to expect flat comp sales for the MK brand in FY19, including a LSD decline in 2Q19. MK Wholesale revenue increased 19.5% to $362.8mn (vs. our $329mn est; +18% in CC). The company noted department store product is performing well in the Americas, and overall, the result was aided by shipment timing. Europe remains under pressure due to the company’s ongoing activity to preserve long-term brand health and support full-price selling through the reduction in inventory and promo activity. We expect these efforts to continue further in FY19, driving further wholesale declines, with Europe in the earlier innings of the process of resetting its wholesale base. MK Licensing revenue decreased 5% to $27.5mn." (8/8/2018)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "KORS reported much stronger than expected FQ1 results with adj. EPS of $1.32 trouncing our/consensus 93c/95c estimates. The beat was broad based with revenue (+7c), gross margin (+19c), SG&A (+10c), and tax (+5c) all contributing to the beat. Total comp growth was flat in Q1 (in line with our est. and guidance) but importantly were positive in NA and Asia, offset by expected weakness in Europe, consistent with our expectations."
