JPMorgan downgrades Vitamin Shoppe on 2017 earnings risk
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers earlier today downgraded Vitamin Shoppe (VSI) to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $28 from $33. The analyst sees downside risk to 2017 earnings as the competitive environment worsens. GNC Holdings (GNC) under new management is testing major pricing and loyalty card changes while Vitamin Shoppe's comparable prices are higher versus Amazon (AMZN), Horvers tells investors in a research note. He sees Vitamin Shoppe "squeezed between" its three larger competitors, GNC, Wal-Mart (WMT) and Amazon. The stock is trading down $2.05 to $25.30 following GNC's Q3 results. GNC is trading down 20% to $16.04.

Outperform
Wal-Mart 2017 earnings somewhat de-risked, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict expects Wal-Mart's Q3 results to be generally in-line as investments in associates, processes, and prices are working together to drive improved customer satisfaction and sales. The company's 2017 estimates appear to be de-risked as management reset margin and earnings expectations at last month's investor meeting, said Benedict, who reiterated his Outperform rating and $80 price target on Wal-Mart shares.

Outperform
Wal-Mart strategy remains on track, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict notes that this was a 'noisy' quarter for Wal-Mart, but underlying EPS effectively in line with expectations. While acknowledging that U.S. traffic gains slowed against a tougher compare and Q4 EPS guidance was viewed as a disappointment, the analyst believes Wal-Mart's strategy remains on track and 2017 EPS estimates appear largely de-risked. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $80 price target on the shares, given the company's defensive appeal within a still choppy consumer/retail backdrop.
