What are Wall Street analysts saying about L Brands stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about L Brands stock:
  • 1. 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)." (9/10/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of L Brands have outpaced the industry in the past three months. The stock got a boost following better-than-expected first-quarter results that also prompted management to lift the lower-end of fiscal 2019 earnings view range. Impressive performance at Bath & Body Works brand aided the results. However, results remained dismal in the company's Victoria’s Secret business, which has been battling competition and consumers’ changing preferences. Management expects Bath & Body Works brand to experience another solid year and remains committed to improve Victoria’s Secret performance. L Brands forecasts second quarter comps to be about flat. Further, it expects gross margin rate to contract both in the second quarter and fiscal 2019. Also, SG&A costs are expected to increase year over year during the fiscal year." (7/31/2019)
