What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ralph Lauren stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ralph Lauren stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ralph Lauren surpassed the industry in the past three months 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." (8/3/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We are encouraged by the progress being made to improve the health of the brand/ business, but continue to believe RL has work ahead to improve its digital strategy, update brand perception, and further rationalize distribution in NA. We look forward to an update on RL’s L-T plan at its Investor Day on 6/7. While we were impressed with the results, we believe today’s share price move accurately reflects much of the progress and the risk reward ratio has narrowed. Given our tepid top-line outlook, we remain NEUTRAL. In 4Q, revenue declined 2.3% to $1.53bn (vs. our -6.0% est), including a -1% total comp sales decline (CC; +4% reported). While revenue in NA came in slightly below our expectations, growth in Europe and Asia was well above our estimates." (5/23/2018)
