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 not only shown a bullish run but also outpaced the industry in the past six months, 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 first-quarter results, wherein both the top and bottom lines beat the consensus mark and improved year over year. The company highlighted that impressive performance across Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury brands favorably impacted the results. Sturdy quarterly show encouraged management to lift sales and earnings view for fiscal 2018. However, Macy’s hinted that comps are likely to remain soft during the second quarter. Further, analysts pointed that the company’s strategic investments in long term endeavors may put pressure on margins in the short term." (7/20/2018) 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) 4. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "significant" sales and margins, Lejuez said in the downgrade note. In fact, the core retail business is not only weak but is getting weaker, as credit income and asset sales won't support profits in the future as has been the case in the past. Various initiatives put in place to offset negative store traffic and margin pressures, such as Last Act and Blue Mercury, has seen some success but not enough to "move the dial."
