What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ralph Lauren stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ralph Lauren stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We remain encouraged by progress being made to improve the health of the brand/business and the strong first half of FY19, but continue to believe RL has work ahead to improve its digital strategy, update brand perception, and rationalize distribution, including quality of sales initiatives globally and further off-price pullback ahead in North America. We believe today’s share price reflects much of the progress made to-date and remain NEUTRAL. In 2Q, revenue rose 1.6% to $1.69bn (vs. our -0.4% estimate), with solid improvement in comp trends QoQ in NA and Europe and strength in Asia, led by China. Total RL comps were flat in CC, improving from a 3% decline in 1Q. NA (+1% rev growth vs. our -3%) comps rose 1% in CC, with improvement in digital (+9% comp, from -2% in 1Q), reflecting traffic gains, and stores comp’d -1% (from -3% in 1Q), with a 3% AUR increase offsetting traffic declines." (11/6/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ralph Lauren surpassed the industry in the past year backed by robust earnings trend in recent quarters. First-quarter fiscal 2019 marked its 14th straight earnings beat driven by stringent focus on key initiatives that focus on core business, improving product assortments and delivering better quality of sales. Additionally, the company’s Way Forward Plan is on track, and it remains keen on bolstering digital and international presence. Management remains confident of Ralph Lauren’s performance, based on its efforts related to global brand reorganization and constant infrastructural investments. Also, favorable currency rates are likely to aid revenues in the fiscal second quarter. However, the company’s North America business continues to suffer. The company projects challenging revenues for the North America wholesale business in second-half fiscal 2019 due to the timing of off-price shipments and the closure of Bon-Ton." (10/4/2018)
  • 3. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We model a 3% comp for FY19, or above BBY’s 0-2% range (that suggests comps are expected to turn negative in 2H)." (5/24/2018)
