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 boasts a sturdy top-line performance since the past several quarters driven by the company’s pro-customer centric approach as well as robust marketing and merchandising efforts. Strong digital presence has also been fuelling performance. Going ahead, management continues to augment omni-channel capabilities and enhance consumers’ digital shopping experience. Lowe’s expects robust opportunities in the booming U.S. home improvements market, which gained from strong real residential investment and rise in home price during third-quarter fiscal 2018. Moreover, in the said quarter, management unveiled plans to improve merchandise through brand additions, localization and enhance value through innovation that aid driving traffic. However, Lowe’s plans to exit Orchard Supply Hardware business and Mexico retail operations along with shuttering certain non-core businesses and stores have led to higher pre-tax charges." (2/12/2019)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We believe solid Q2 results provide a nice backdrop for new CEO Marvin Ellison’s introductory call at 9am. While LOW’s 90c outlook reduction comes as a surprise, the change appears to largely reflect the decision to close 99 Orchard Supply stores, with little change reflecting core business trends. In our view, Marvin is off to a fast start, and we would use any outlook­driven weakness this morning (8/22) as a buying opportunity for what we believe to be the beginning of a multi­year turnaround for LOW."
