On May 26, 2023, Laura Champine, an analyst at Loop Capital, announced that she has maintained her Buy rating on Burlington Stores (NYSE:BURL) and increased the price target to $225, a $5 increase from the previous target. Despite the increase, the new price target still falls within the average range of $182 to $250, which was determined by analysts polled by Capital IQ. Champine attributes the company’s success to the current macroeconomic softening, which benefits value-focused retailers like Burlington. The company’s value proposition for lower-income consumers has improved, and its new signage highlights opening price points across categories. Although persistent inflation poses a challenge for Burlington’s customers, the improved values and brands in stores are expected to drive market share gains.
