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 more than double in a year, has been riding on its sturdy comps trend for four quarters. Kohl’s comps have been gaining from its Greatness Agenda initiative as well as focus on boosting traffic and enhancing operational excellence. Incidentally, solid comps continued to fuel the company’s top line in second-quarter fiscal 2018, which along with enhanced gross margin and lower interest expenses drove bottom-line growth. In fact, the company has been witnessing gross margin improvement for quite some time now, backed by its robust inventory management efforts. Clearly, Kohl’s is likely to continue with its stellar show, evident from management’s raised outlook. However, the company continues to incur higher SG&A expenses owing to escalated IT costs. For fiscal 2018, management now expects the increase in SG&A expenses to be at the higher end of its previously guided range of 1-2%." (8/23/2018)
  • 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)
