Analysts at Wedbush think the recent pullback in shares of Chico's, Inc. (NYSE: CHS) create a compelling buying opportunity. Checks by the firm showed Q1 remains "intact."

"While shares of CHS are likely pricing in an earnings miss (stock down -1% since Q4 earnings on 2/28 vs. overall group appreciation of +3%) given macro and weather, our Retail Specialists have called out strong traffic and conversion at both Chico's and WHBM. We also note clean inventories (down -1.6% psf at Q4- end) has allowed CHS to deliver highly successful, targeted promotions that have been generally in line with LY, which should protect gross margins," said analyst Betty Chen.
