What are Wall Street analysts saying about Kohl's stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Kohl's stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kohl’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past year, thanks to traffic boosting and sales driving initiatives. Such efforts benefitted the company’s comps during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, thereby driving both top and bottom line performances. Moreover, sturdy comps indicate that the company’s strategic initiative, Greatness Agenda, is yielding results. Going ahead, the company anticipates comps growth in the range of flat to a rise of 2% in fiscal 2018. Kohl’s has also been undertaking merchandising initiatives to reduce inventory levels and boost margins. Further, the company has been expanding its e-commerce fulfillment centers to support its growing online business. However, Kohl’s has been incurring higher SG&A expenses for a while now and expects the same to rise in the bracket of 1-2% during fiscal 2018. Moreover, changing consumer spending habits continue to remain risks for the company." (5/18/2018)
- 2. 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)
