Jefferies cuts Edgewell Personal Care target citing Harry's rollout at Target
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy lowered his price target on Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) to $75 from $77 after Harry's shave club offerings launched nationwide at Target (TGT), saying his store checks revealed strong in-store execution for the roll-out. Grundy thinks soon-to-be acquired Dollar Shave Club will also to push into retail and expects other retailers, perhaps including Walmart (WMT), to follow Target's lead and offer shelf space to the "trendy" shave club brands. While saying this is also a risk to Procter & Gamble (PG), Grundy keeps his Buy rating and $98 price target on P&G shares, saying increased levels of investment in U.S. shaving are already factored in the company's guidance.
