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 month backed by a robust surprise history and upbeat outlook. Third-quarter fiscal 2019 marked the company’s 16th straight earnings beat driven by solid execution of key initiatives, particularly during the holiday season. Moreover, sales topped estimates for the fourth consecutive quarter backed by double-digit top-line growth in Asia and Europe, as well as sequential gains in North America. Management remains confident of its performance, based on efforts to focus on consumer demands; elevate and energize brands; and balance growth and productivity. However, the North America segment continues to suffer due to soft store traffic and a challenging wholesale business. The company expects volatile revenues for the North America wholesale business through fiscal 2019 due to planned reduction of off-price sales. Currency headwinds are also likely to mar sales growth throughout fiscal 2019." (2/7/2019)

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.

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."
