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. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Lowe’s have not only declined but also underperformed the industry in the past month. Notably, 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. This along with soft margins and headwinds related to intense competition remain matters of concern. Additionally, anticipates softness in the Canadian housing market to persist in the near-term. On the flip side, the company witnessed decent comps performance in fourth-quarter fiscal 2018. Although top line missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, the same rose year over year gaining from pro-customer centric approach as well as robust marketing and merchandising efforts. Lowe's has chalked out a detailed plan to augment sales, contain costs and improve cash flow generation from operations. " (5/16/2019)
  • 3. 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."
