What are analysts saying about Luxottica Group SpA stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Luxottica Group SpA stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Luxottica Group is the world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of high quality eyeglass frames and sunglasses in the mid and premium priced market segments. The Company's products, which are designed and produced in four facilities based in Northern Italy, include over 1,700 styles available in a wide array of colors and sizes. The eyeglass and sunglass frames manufactured by Luxottica are sold through twelve wholly-owned distributors in the United States, Canada, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Germany, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Switzerland and Mexico. " (5/6/2017)
- 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We got further reassurance that the company should meet at least the bottom end of FY16 guidance of 2-3% org. growth, in line with consensus expectations. Therefore we believe Q4 will not see the series of earnings downgrades into the results, as we saw into Q2/Q3. Reassurance that the new initiatives will only be short-term headwinds. We believe the drag on sales of MAP in the US and the removal of third-party distributors in China will roll over in 2H17, once annualized. Additionally, we see these initiatives as positive signs that management is willing to put in place strategies to clean up distribution, leveraging its strong brand portfolio in the correct way. We believe this should put the company back on a mid- single-digit growth path, with top-line accelerating through FY17. New Ray-Ban mono-brand stores could be the answer for China. The company has lagged in China over the past decade but management’s focus on turning the region around over the past year may now be coming to fruition. The new strategy of Ray-Ban mono-brand concept stores appears to be gaining traction with comps growing double digit and plans to expand from less than 40 stores (Sept) to 70 by year-end."

Consensus Ratings for Luxottica Group SpA (NYSE:LUX) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
