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 risen in the past three months. The company intends to make Bath & Body Works chain, which has been the bright spot, a pure-play public company, and Victoria’s Secret, which has been struggling, a standalone company. Management is taking every step to improve the performance of Victoria’s Secret business, such as inventory management, cost reductions and an increase in full-price selling. Victoria’s Secret store optimization plan is also on the card. Well we believe had the Sycamore deal been materialized, it would have provided some cushion to the company’s financial position. The company has been struggling with declining revenues and shrinking margins for a while. L Brands posted wider-than-expected first-quarter fiscal 2020 loss per share. Also, sales miss for the fourth straight quarter." (7/28/2020)
  • 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)."
