What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lowe's Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lowe's Companies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Lowe’s, which has shown a decent run in the past three months, is gaining from its key sales initiatives like focus on Pro customers, better product presentation and in-store merchandising, among others. Such efforts drove sales in second-quarter fiscal 2019, wherein top and bottom lines were strong. While earnings gained from higher sales and lower SG&A costs, sales were backed by solid spring demand, robust execution of holiday event, and improvement in Paint and Pro businesses. Also, Lowe’s saw comparable sales growth in all 15 U.S regions. However, supply-chain woes and adverse mix continued to hurt gross margin, which contracted in the quarter. Also, the company is exposed to competition. Nonetheless, solid demand in the home improvement space and Lowe’s retail fundamentals keep it well positioned." (9/30/2019)
  • 2. Cfra analysts commented, "LOW, with new management, is still in the early stages of transforming the company with improved sales execution, inventory controls, better supply chain and revamped stores, in our opinion. With better operational performance, we think LOW may regain market share in FY 20 (Jan.) from its largest competitor, Home Depot (HD 189 ***)." (6/14/2019)
