1-800 FLOWERS.COM, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLWS)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reiterated by analysts at Noble Financial in a report released on Thursday, November 2nd.

The analysts wrote, “Mgmt’s ‘18 guidance will force Street’s EPS estimates lower by 10%-ish, and we now model flattish earnings growth in ’18. This outlook does assume a turn to positive SSS, despite negative trends since 2Q17. This may not prove a conservative SSS base-case with mgm’t now suggesting mall traffic is a 50-100bps annual headwind. This, along with continued cost pressures, causes initial ’18 guidance to be tilted a tad aggressively as analyzed today.””
