Macy's upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez upgraded Macy's (M) to Buy saying an attractive free cash flow and dividend yield makes the risk/reward attractive at current levels. While the long term structural challenges to department stores are unlikely to go away, Macy's is "doing the right things for the business," Lejuez tells investors in a research note. He calls the retailer "one of the stronger horses in the race" and sees upcoming quarterly results as potential catalysts. Lejuez keeps a $44 price target for Macy's shares. The analyst points out that Macy's 4.4% dividend yielding 4.4% trails only Kohl's (KSS) and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) among the retailers he covers. Macy's closed yesterday down 59c to $34.68.

Abercrombie & Fitch downgraded to Sector Weight at KeyBanc
As previously reported, KeyBanc analyst Jessica Schmidt downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Sector Weight from Overweight after the firm's proprietary promotional database and channel checks suggest that promotions at its Abercrombie and Hollister brands are higher than at this time last year. The elevated promotions add to other headwinds, including the fact that the teen space is "overstored" and faces soft consumer demand and weak tourism, said Schmidt.
