What are Wall Street analysts saying about VF stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about VF stock:
  • 1. Guggenheim analysts commented, "We believe the strategic rationale is compelling, with synergies across these businesses becoming less clear as they’ve evolved over time. We remain $105 PT. We believe this transaction offers compelling strategic rationale and is a logical next step for VF as an active portfolio manager. In the past ~12 months, VF has sold its Licensing business (May 2017) and Nautica (April 2018) and acquired: 1) Williamson-Dickie (Oct. 2017), 2) Icebreaker (April 2018), and 3) Altra (June 2018). We believe the transaction announced today will be a key catalyst for VF’s next layer of transformative growth and value creation and note a few key points: the deal 1) enhances strategic/management focus, 2) focuses investment on strategic priorities, 3) adds flexibility to pursue independent strategies/diverging paths to value creation, and 4) drives more efficient capital allocation." (8/13/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "VFC announced plans to spin off its Jeanswear brands (Wrangler and Lee as well as its outlet stores) and create two separate public entities with the closing scheduled for calendar 1H19. Historically, the Jeanswear coalition was a free cash flow machine that funded the growth of smaller acquisitions (e.g. North Face and Vans). Now, the action/ outdoor brands are large, self-funding and account for 75% of today’s FCF generation." (8/13/2018)
  • 3. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We believe these styles have been particularly strong since last back- to-school, evidenced by CC growth of 26%, 35% and 39% for 2Q18, 3Q18 and 4Q18, respectively. VFC is guiding to 12%-13% Vans growth for the year, including some moderation in 2H18, which is wise. We don’t doubt that the company’s Vans backlog is robust, but much of the Vans growth is driven by D2C and replenishment, where visibility is limited. All told, given that Vans is the main driver of VFC’s growth right now, and as visibility is limited, we don’t believe risk/reward is that favorable at current levels. 4Q sales/EPS beat Sales were up 21.8% (+17% CC and +8% CC/organic) to $3.045B, vs. our estimate of $2.908B, consensus of $2.913B and guidance of $2.900B, with the Outdoor/Action Sports coalition up 18.8% to $22.015B, including Vans +45% and The North Face +11%. EPS of $0.67, vs. our estimate of $0.65, consensus of $0.66 and guidance of $0.65. Inventory, at the end of 4Q, was up 16.8% to $1.1861B." (5/7/2018)
