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, "Shares of Michael Kors have surged in a year. 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, focus on e-commerce platform and accretive buyouts bode well. The strategic acquisitions such as that of Jimmy Choo and Versace strengthens Michael Kors’ ambition to become a global luxury player. Management stated that the addition of Versace will help augment group’s revenues to $8 billion in the long term. However, the buyout is likely to dilute earnings per share in the high-single digits in fiscal 2020 but is expected to be accretive in the low-single digits in fiscal 2021 and again in high-single digits in fiscal 2022. Upon the completion of the buyout, Michael Kors will be renamed as Capri Holdings Limited." (10/26/2018)
  • 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)
