Wal-Mart to launch 'Store No. 8' tech incubator, Bloomberg reports

Wal-Mart (WMT) is set to launch 'Store No. 8," a technology start-up incubator in Silicon Valley, Bloomberg reports, citing comments made by e-commerce chief and Jet.com founder Marc Lore at the ShopTalk conference in Las Vegas. The aim of the incubator is to identify promising start-ups that are developing virtual reality, drone delivery, autonomous vehicle and personalized shopping solutions that can make the retail experience more appealing, the report adds. The move is an effort to win back customers from online-only stores such as Amazon (AMZN). Reference Link

Target risk/reward compelling ahead of investor day, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Naughton says Target's (TGT) risk/reward is "compelling" ahead of the company's investor day. The stock, trading at a 21% discount to most direct peer Wal-Mart (WMT), is pricing in much of the near-term downside, Naughton tells investors in a research note. Target is "under-loved" and remains a "great brand with good assets and strong free cash flow," the analyst contends. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with an $83 price target.

Wal-Mart upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded Wal-Mart to Buy and raised its price target to $88 from $76 saying the US strategy is working and risk/reward is favorable on e-com sales momentum. The analyst said Q4 US e-com GMV growth was up 36% year-over-year and believes the company is entering a period of 20-30%+ e-com growth and expects the multiple to rise as e-com success increases and recent acquisitions go into the US comp.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Robert Ohmes saying the U.S. strategy is working and risk/reward is favorable on e-commerce sales momentum. 2. Scorpio Tankers (STNG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at ABN Amro with analyst Glenn Lodden raising his price target for the shares to $7.50 from $4.30. 3. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying her analysis suggests the company's synergy targets for the Clarcor (CLC) acquisition are "overly conservative." The analyst feels the deal "makes good strategic sense." She raised her price target for Parker-Hannifin shares to $173 from $146. 4. STMicroelectronics (STM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Andrew Gardiner saying further market share and content gains will show during 2017. 5.

Macquarie has ten concerns about lululemon
Macquarie analyst Laurent Vasilescu outlined his ten concerns about lululemon (LULU). Specifically, he says that the company's store comps are in the low single percentage digits, the company continues to reduce the amount of information it discloses about its gross margins, its men's and ivivva projects are margin dilutive, the U.S. market has reached saturation, its U.S. stores are margin dilutive, it's not investing enough in marketing, it invests almost nothing in R&D and is not a tech company as it claims, it's facing new competition from Amazon (AMZN), Beyonce and denim, and it has high fixed SG&A costs and inventories. The analyst adds that the stock historically does well after the Q4 results and then retreats. He keeps a $44 price target and an Underperform rating on the name.

Growth of Amazon.com cloud business could moderate, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Brent Bracelin says that heavy investments by Microsoft (MSFT) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) could make their cloud businesses more competitive with Amazon's (AMZN) AWS. The analyst says that AWS' growth could decelerate this year and in 2018. He lowered his estimates for Amazon and cut his price target on the name to $895 from $905 but keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
