Oppenheimers Anna Andreeva and Samantha Lanman reiterated an Outperform rating and $75 price target on the stock, but admit that the magnitude of L Brands downward forecast was disappointing, even with weak industry trends signaled by peers like Wal-Mart (WMT), Macys (M), and TJX Cos. (TJX).

While they still are bullish, they admit that the bottom isnt clear:

In the last 5 years, LB’s multiple averaged in high-teens given quality of brands/management, with 13-14x trough not seen since early ’13valuation could still compress assuming guidance isn’t conservative enough. Sticking with Outperform for now, albeit near-term visibility is worsening.
