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 lagged the industry in the past three months. Pressure on the stock increased after it posted dismal first-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both top and bottom lines fell year over year and missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Notably, this marked Kohl’s first earnings and revenue miss in a long time. Comps also broke the strong trend owing to adverse weather condition, weak home category sales and not so productive promotions amid intense competition. The company expects the softness to continue in the second quarter. These hurdles and expected tariff impacts compelled management to slash its outlook. Nonetheless, Kohl’s is on track to improve sales in the second half of the fiscal on the back of the Amazon Returns program and other sales-driving endeavors. Also, the company’s inventory management efforts should cushion gross margin." (5/24/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain BUY-rated on KSS shares and raise our PT to $80 (from $75)." (3/5/2019)
