Chinese tax changes modestly positive for cosmetics makers, says Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink noted that the Chinese Ministry of Finance has reduced or eliminated the consumption tax on all cosmetic products as of October 1 to stimulate demand and growth, which she views as a modest positive for Estee Lauder (EL), Avon Products (AVP) and Coty (COTY). Of the three, Estee Lauder has the highest exposure to China, which makes up about 10% of its annual revenues, Wissink added.

Estee Lauder should be bought on weakness, says RBC Capital
After Estee Lauder provided lower than expected fiscal 2017 EPS guidance and the stock fell 3.5% on Friday, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi recommends that investors buy the shares on weakness. The analyst says that the company's lower than expected EPS and its "slightly disappointing" longer term margin guidance caused the stock to decline. However, he says that the company's revenue and EPS growth is outpacing peers, while its margin guidance is conservative and the stock is "cheap." He keeps a $107 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.

CarMax (KMX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with analyst Glenn Chin citing valuation. 3. Eaton (ETN) and Ingersoll-Rand (IR) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Jeffrey Hammond citing his more cautious outlook for nonresidential construction. 4. Estee Lauder (EL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying it will be difficult for the company to achieve further market share gains, given increased competition, slowing growth in the premium beauty products space, and a "challenging" macro environment. 5.

Avon shares could double over next two years, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Bill Schmitz raised his price target for Avon Products to $8 from $7 following the company's Q2 results. The path to double digit margins, low to mid single digit organic growth and cash flow recovery is clearer with emerging markets stabilizing, Schmitz tells investors in a post-earnings research note. With consensus estimates no longer going down, the analyst says Avon is the only stock he covers that could double over the next two years. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Avon closed yesterday up 60c, or 14%, to $4.76.

INITIATION

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) initiated with a Buy at Sterne Agee CRT with analyst Rob Cihra arguing that while the electric carmaker is "controversial, expensive and risky," its growth is "open-ended" as it targets the trillion dollar auto and energy markets. Chira has a $300 price target on the stock. 2. Big Lots (BIG) initiated with an Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Nagel citing ongoing turnaround potential. 3. GrubHub (GRUB) initiated with a Buy at Maxim. 4. Yelp (YELP) initiated with a Buy at Maxim. 5. Avon Products (AVP) initiated with a Buy at Jefferies.

Nu Skin initiated with a Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Trevor Young started Nu Skin Enterprises (NUS) with a Hold rating and $41 price target. The analyst prefers the sidelines given the company's "narrow" product offering, high China exposure and guidance volatility. Young this morning also started Avon Products (AVP) with a Buy rating and $7 price target.

Jefferies analyst Trevor Young started Avon Products with a Buy rating and $7 price target. Avon is in the early stages of its three-year transformation and selling the North American business to Cerberus alleviates cash worries, Young tells investors in a research note. He believes the company's remaining international business is poised for greater growth.

Deutsche sees 'considerable value creation opportunities' for Coty
Deutsche Bank analyst Bill Schmitz believes "tepid" organic growth and deal integration challenges are dominating the Coty investor conversation into the P&G beauty asset close. The analyst, however, sees "considerable value creation opportunities" as Coty rationalizes the portfolio and supply chain, eliminates overhead and reinvests behind focus brands. He raised his price target for the shares to $32 from $31 and keeps a Buy rating on the name.
