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 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Kohl’s shares have surpassed the industry in the past year, courtesy of effective sales-driving initiatives. Such efforts benefitted Kohl’s comps during first-quarter fiscal 2018, driving top-line performance. In fact, such efforts have been aiding positive comps growth since the past three quarters. Moreover, sturdy comps indicate that Greatness Agenda initiative is yielding results. Further, Kohl’s has been undertaking merchandising initiatives to reduce inventory levels and boost margins. The company has also been expanding its e-commerce fulfillment centers to support growing online business. These upsides encouraged management to raise earnings view for fiscal 2018. However, Kohl’s has been incurring higher SG&A costs for a while and expects the same to rise in the bracket of 1-2% during fiscal 2018. Changing consumer spending habits are also a threat. Nonetheless, estimates have risen lately ahead of earnings." (7/24/2018)
