Lowe's Fixes Up Earnings Growth
Thu Oct 1 (at
Lowe’s (LOW:NYSE) By Credit Suisse ($66.77, Sept. 30, 2015) We are reaffirming our positive view on Lowe’s stock following meeting with management this week. Following some disappointments in the first half, we came away with slightly better visibility on the near- and medium-term outlook for Lowe’s (LOW), including the company’s ability to sustain about 4% comps over time and achieve the operating leverage expected in the second half and built into the 2017 11% earnings before interest and taxes (Ebit) goal. Given the stock’s decline year-to-date, we view Lowe’s as an attractive investment within large-cap discretionary retail.
