What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kohl's stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kohl's stock:
- 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe guidance for FY18 is achievable and could surprise to the upside given many of the initiatives planned for the year. With the underperformance in shares today (-5%) vs. the S&P 500 (down ~1%), we would use the weakness as an opportunity to further accumulate." (3/1/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kohl’s has surpassed the industry in a year, fueled by its traffic boosting and sales driving initiatives. These efforts helped the company deliver a solid holiday season, as both comps and sales rose 6.9%, faring much better than the previous period performance. Sales were driven by strong digital demand and store traffic, which in turn was backed by Kohl’s strategies like its deal with Amazon and focus on including prominent brands. Additionally, Kohl’s has been expanding its online fulfillment centers to support growth at its online platform. Notably, the better-than-expected holiday sales led to a raised earnings view for fiscal 2017. The latest tax reforms are also likely to have a favorable impact on Kohl’s performance. However, the company has been incurring higher-shipping costs related to online business. Also, it expects SG&A costs in fiscal 2017 to rise at the higher end of its previously issued range."
