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, which has seen its stock nearly double in a year, has been riding on sturdy comps trend for five straight quarters. Comps continued to gain from robust endeavors to boost store and online traffic. In the third quarter of fiscal 2018, comps increased 2.5%, with Men's and Children’s apparel categories depicting strong performances. Results also gained from inventory reducing efforts that boosted gross margin. Digital sales witnessed a mid-teen rise, backed by sturdy mobile sales. Further, the quarter marked the company’s sixth and fourth consecutive top- and bottom-line beats, respectively. Encouragingly, the upbeat results fueled management’s expectations for fiscal 2018. However, the company continues to incur higher SG&A expenses. For fiscal 2018, management expects SG&A expenses to rise at the higher end of 1-2%. Moreover, changing consumer tastes and stiff competition in the retail space are threats." (11/22/2018)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are encouraged by the results and continue to believe Kohl’s is well positioned in the department store sector, as continued positive comps, healthy inventory levels, and ongoing expense control should support healthy operating income growth (+11% in 2Q). At ~13.7x our new FY19E EPS, we believe shares are attractively valued, while yielding a solid ~3%. We raise our FY18E/19E EPS to $5.55/$5.85. We remain BUY rated with an $85 PT. Net sales increased 3.9% to $4.31bn, driven by a +3.1% comp increase on a shifted basis (vs. our +2.0% est). The 3.1% comp increase was the fourth-straight positive, driven by higher average transaction value (ATV). Both stores and digital delivered positive results in the quarter, with digital growing mid-teens." (8/21/2018)
