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, "Shares of Lowe’s have declined and underperformed the industry in the past three months. We note that the company’s sales lagged the Zacks Consensus Estimate for the second straight time when it reported fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results. Nevertheless, earnings were robust in the quarter as the metric beat the consensus mark and grew year over year. Better process execution, cost-containment efforts and an improvement in gross margin trend drove the bottom line. Moreover, comparable sales increased on solid performance by U.S. home improvement stores. The company’s merchandise category and Pro business also exhibited strength. Further, efforts to enhance online business led to robust comps growth in lowes.com. Management issued an upbeat view for fiscal 2020. However, a high level of debt may act as a deterrent." (4/28/2020)
  • 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)
