Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Macy's stock: 1. 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) 2. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain BUY-rated and raise our PT to $36 (from $32)." (5/16/2018) 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Macy’s, whose shares have outpaced the industry in the past six months, has taken several strategic initiatives to adapt to the ongoing changes in the retail landscape. These efforts have aided the company to post earnings beat for the third quarter in row, when it reported fourth-quarter fiscal 2017 results. The big take away from the quarter was comparable sales that rose after declining in the preceding few quarters. Further, management's strategic investments across stores, technology and merchandising are likely to cushion comparable sales. Macy’s has also announced slew of measures revolving around stores closures, cost containment, real estate strategy and investment in omnichannel capabilities to improve performance. Moreover, we believe that focus on private label brands will help augment profit margins. Notably, estimates have been stable ahead of first-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings release." (5/8/2018) 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."
