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 six months. We note that the company disappointed with its holiday season results. Weak sales number at Victoria's Secret brand hurt the overall performance. The company has been grappling with softness at the Victoria’s Secret brand due to stiff competition and consumers’ changing preferences. This was visible in the holiday sales number. Nonetheless, solid performance at Bath & Body Works brand did provide some cushion. But this did not restrain L Brands to trim fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 earnings per share view. Nevertheless, the company is leaving no stone unturned to revive its Victoria’s Secret brand. Product launches, increased focus on omnichannel capabilities and improved marketing strategies are some of the notable moves in this direction." (1/15/2020)
  • 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)."
