Analysts' Thoughts

Burlington Stores has been one of the hottest stocks in recent years, but like the majority of the market shares have been under pressure during the recent market correction. The outlook remains favorable for the discount retailer, which should regain strength and erase recent losses as strength returns to the overall market. The retail sector remains favorable with a strong economy and low unemployment resulting in strong consumer confidence. Discount retailers have shown particular strength, and BURL has been among the strongest. A lot of the recent selling can be tied to profit taking after a multi-year bull run. BURL’s valuation looks more favorable at this time with a forward P/E of 20.8, and earnings are growing at a rapid pace. Profits are up 33% per annum over the last five years, and are expected to continue to rise at an average annual rate of 22% over the next five years. Burlington Stores has a strong earnings track record and the street expects another earnings beat this quarter with a whisper number of $1.12. Analysts have a $176.82 average price target on the stock.
