What are Wall Street analysts saying about L Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about L Brands stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of L Brands have slid and underperformed the industry in the past three months. The company has been grappling with sluggishness at the Victoria’s Secret brand stemming from stiff competition and consumers’ changing preferences. This is evident from second-quarter results, wherein earnings beat estimate, while net sales missed the same. Both the top and the bottom lines fell year over year. Nonetheless, solid performance at Bath & Body Works brand did provide some cushion. Also, L Brands retained fiscal 2019 earnings view. Management expects Bath & Body Works brand to experience another solid year and remains committed to improve Victoria’s Secret performance. Overall comps are likely to show improvement from the fourth quarter. However, gross margin is expected to contract both in the third quarter and fiscal 2019." (11/15/2019)
  • 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We continue to forecast +LSD% comp sales growth in this business through 2020, on top of difficult comparisons vs. the +HSD-DD% comp gains in recent quarters. On a two-year basis, we expect trends to remain quite healthy here. In International, the VS UK business has experienced significant erosion in the past 3 years, similar to the NA market but compounded by the challenges in the UK economy. In China, the company continues to see significant potential long term and has now entered 19 markets and prototyped 7 different formats. International is roughly 5% of total LB sales (our 2019E). Overall, the company is focused on getting on a path to profitability in International (both the UK and China), and we continue to forecast a modest operating income loss this year (similar to 2018)."
