BofA thinks Verizon deal stays on track despite Yahoo data breach
Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Justin Post said that Yahoo's (YHOO) disclosure of the massive data breach impacting over 500M of its users is clearly a negative for the company that could result in email account closures, but he does not anticipate a major impact on Yahoo's business related to this breach, citing as evidence the fact that he is not aware of any significant business impairment or financial liability related to security breaches at LinkedIn (LNKD) in 2012 and at eBay (EBAY) in 2014. Post adds that the Target (TGT) data breach, which did include credit card info, is not directly comparable to Yahoo's breach. For Verizon (VZ) to back out of its acquisition agreement, Post thinks the company would need to assume Yahoo acted in bad faith during negotiations and that the Yahoo asset is impaired or comes with significant liability, neither of which he sees as being the case. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Yahoo and bumped his target on the shares to $55 from $53, citing an increased price target on Alibaba (BABA) that a peer at the firm recently set.

Dollar Tree price target raised to $100 from $90 at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on Dollar Tree (DLTR) to $100 from $90 following Q3 results. The analyst said the company's results eased a number of fears and demonstrated it could hold its own against competitors such as Wal-Mart (WMT). Dollar Tree exhibited comp growth, and its merger with Family dollar is providing synergies within its guidance, said Lasser, who reiterated his Buy rating on the shares.

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.

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.

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.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

AT&T (T) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst John Hodulik citing expectations for lower earnings growth. 3. Macy's (M) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Exstein saying the retailer, after outlining in August its operations and merchandising strategies, is now in an execution phase. 4. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Mizuho and to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital. 5. Galectin Therapeutics (GALT) downgraded to Sell from Buy at Roth Capital with analyst Sa'ar Yaniv citing the company's announcement that NASH-FX, GR-MD-02's Phase 2a study in NASH fibrosis, failed both primary and secondary endpoints.

J.C. Penney longer-term recovery story intact, says Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager notes that J.C. Penney reported weaker than expected Q3 comps and gross margin but reaffirmed longer-term growth targets. While the analyst is encouraged by tight cost controls amid the sluggish growth backdrop, he will need to see comps regain momentum to support longer-term goals. Nonetheless, Altschwager continues to believe the pieces are in place for this to happen, setting up attractive risk/reward as this self-help recovery story unfolds. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $13 price target on the shares.
