What are Wall Street analysts saying about VF stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about VF stock:
  • 1. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We’re modeling 2Q19 sales/EPS above consensus, as we believe the quarter exceeded plan, driven primarily by robust Vans performance. That said, we’re less bullish on the balance of the year, partly due to less expected benefit from Vans and a tough weather comparison for and Timberland." (10/15/2018)
  • 2. 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)
  • 3. 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)
