What are analysts saying about L Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about L Brands stock:

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "For Feb., LB guided to a (20%) comp at VS and (MSD) comp at BBW. For FY'18, LB guided comps (LSD), GM down, SG&A up, and EPS materially below cons. We believe this stock has not yet bottomed. Reiterate Underperform. PT to $40' We see risks rising at LB, owing to increased competition and pricing compression, at a time when VS is executing major changes to its core business. We continue to believe the company will struggle through FY'18, forecasting down EPS into the foreseeable future. We see these headwinds persisting LT, as many appear structural in nature." (2/23/2017)
  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "LB reported a 4Q16 adjusted EPS of $2.03, above FBR/consensus of $1.90 but excluding the $0.11 tax benefit earnings would have been $1.92, just above guidance of about $1.90. LB previously reported 4Q comps of flat. LB guided 1Q/2017 EPS to $0.20'$0.25/$3.05'$3.35 versus FBR/consensus of $0.59/$0.49 for 1Q and $3.05'$3.35. We like LB's execution, resilient businesses, focus on inventory management/speed, and growth potential, but we believe the stock is fairly valued given expected headwinds in 2017 and uncertainty around the timing of a return to LB's long-term growth metrics." (2/23/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "L Brands shares have underperformed the industry in the past six months. The company's January comps slid 4%, following a 1% dip in December 2016. Net sales fell 1% for the month. However, the company reported flat comps and recorded sales growth of 2% for fourth-quarter fiscal 2016. Further, it now expects earnings to be approximately $1.90 per share compared with its prior guidance for the low end of its initial projection of $1.85 to $2.00. Estimates have been also going down ahead of the company’s earnings release.
