What are Wall Street analysts saying about Macy's stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Macy's stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Macy’s have surged and outpaced the industry in a year, courtesy to slew of measures undertaken to adapt to the dynamic retail landscape. The company remains focused on price, merchandising, private label brands, technology and omnichannel capabilities. These efforts aided the company to post impressive second-quarter fiscal 2018 results, wherein the bottom line beat the consensus estimate and grew year over year. Management highlighted that upbeat performance across Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury brands favorably impacted the results. However, net sales fell short of the consensus mark and slid year over year. But this did not deter management from lifting sales and earnings view for full year on the back of strategic efforts, solid execution and higher consumer spending environment. Nonetheless, analysts pointed that strategic investments in long term endeavors may put pressure on margins." (10/15/2018)
  • 2. Cowen Inc analysts commented, "We update Discovery (DISCA, Neutral, $24 PT) estimates for the recent international PGA Tour deal, and as a follow up to recent earnings. Overall, our core OIBDA estimates don’t move much. We want to like the novel PGA partnership, but see the initial take of minimal impact to the P&L in the initial years as arguing for a wait and see approach. Our core stance on Discovery’s equity remains one of benign consternation. Discovery, we believe, is executing pretty well in a secularly challenged cable network sector that investors seem to basically hate at the moment. Its FCF valuation looks way too cheap. But we don’t know what prompts a re-rating at this point." (6/7/2018)
  • 3. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain BUY-rated and raise our PT to $36 (from $32)." (5/16/2018)
