What are Wall Street analysts saying about World Wrestling Entertainment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about World Wrestling Entertainment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of WWE have fallen and underperformed the industry in a month. The stock came under pressure following the company’s wider-than-expected first-quarter 2019 loss per share. Net revenues also fell short of the Zacks Consensus Estimate. We note that both the top and bottom lines came below the prior-year period. Lower top line, higher operating expenses, increased marketing and selling expenses, rise in G&A expenses and higher interest expense hurt the bottom line. Moreover, management had earlier hinted that adjusted OIBDA is expected to decline year over year through the third quarter, as increased content rights fees are likely to be offset by higher fixed costs. Nevertheless, WWE continues to anticipate record revenue of about $1 billion for 2019 with adjusted OIBDA of at least $200 million on the backdrop of original content production, localization and strategic initiatives as well as digitization." (4/30/2019)
  • 2. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "Tilly’s (TLYS) reports 2Q results AMC 8/29. We believe that the company got e-comm/omni- channel back on track for BTS. Our checks suggest that positive brick & mortar traffic continued for the seventh consecutive Q. Relevant to industry laterals, Zumiez (ZUMZ) reported July comps +9.1%, which we believe was driven by traffic to a large extent and Urban Outfitters (URBN) recently reported positive traffic across regions. All of TLYS’ departments comped positively in May except for accessories (down lsd). With the restart of omni-channel systems, we believe overall digital performance improved over the -7.2% comp in 1Q, particularly given that monthly comps sequentially improved in 1Q and were up lsd in May. Omni-channel is gearing up with DTC fully turned on during 2Q for the beginning of BTS." (8/27/2018)
