Costco could see sluggish September comps, says Baird

Baird analyst Peter Benedict previewed September sales for Costco (COST). He believes comps could be sluggish as they are going against difficult comparisons. Looking ahead, however, he sees better traffic and sales as comparisons start to ease and members increasingly recognize the benefits of the new co-branded Visa (V) card. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $175 price target on Costco shares.

Members seem to be embracing Costco new co-branded credit card, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel says new and existing members seem to be embracing Costco's (COST) new co-branded credit card offer, a partnership with Visa (V) and Citi (C). Although the analyst acknowledges that initial data is limited, he estimates that since the launch of the new Costco-branded credit card, sign-ups have tracked as much as 250K-290K higher than prior run rates, when Costco was partnered with American Express (AXP). Oppenheimer has an Outperform rating on Costco's shares.

Costco recent selloff a buying opportunity, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers views the recent pullback in shares of Costco as a buying opportunity. The newly rolled out co-branded credit card should drive basket size and potentially traffic, Horvers tells investors in a research note. He believes Costco's "moderate" same-store-sales miss in August is a bright spot in retrospect given the subsequent negative preannouncements from peers. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $179 price target.

Costco weakness a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict recommends buying Costco (COST) on its pullback as he believes the shares offer a compelling value proposition. The analyst also sees Costco as having a loyal membership model that remains a positive in today's challenging retail world. Benedict sees better traffic/sales later this year as comps ease and members recognize the benefits of the new co-branded Visa (V) card. He reiterated his Outperform rating and $175 price target on Costco shares.

Stephens sees PayPal, Visa partnership as long-term positive
Stephens analyst Brett Huff remains a buyer of PayPal (PYPL) saying the positives of Q2 outweighed the negatives. The analyst points out the revenue beat, raised 2016 guidance, the boost the Visa (V) deal will give in-store payments initiative and the increased long-term revenue opportunity via higher engagement from payment choice from the Visa deal, as some of those positives. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $45 price target on PayPal's shares.

PayPal benefits from Visa deal being overlooked, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Keane believes the benefits to PayPal (PYPL) from its deal with Visa (V) are being overlooked. The deal provides an opportunity to work with Visa and issuers to actively promote PayPal, which could further accelerate the company's revenue growth profile, Keane tells investors in a research note. He reiterates a Buy rating on the shares with a $44 price target.

PayPal card deals long-term positive despite near-term margin impact, says Baird
After PayPal (PYPL) announced this morning that it has agreed to an expanded partnership with MasterCard (MA), Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said the new deal closely mirrors the company's recent agreement with Visa (V). He believes the partnerships with the card networks are a long-term positive for PayPal despite the likely negative near-term impact on margins, as he thinks PayPal's digital wallet will ultimately be more successful with the card networks' cooperation. Sebastian keeps an Outperform rating and $48 price target on PayPal shares.
