Advance Auto Parts likely to report fall in Q1 EPS, comp sales, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Alan Rifkin estimates that Advance Auto's EPS dropped 10% in Q1 year-over-year, and he thinks that the company's comp sales fell year-over-year. The analyst says that its results were hurt by "unfavorable weather, tax refund delays, shift in New Year's Day, inventory streamlining and ongoing company-specific distribution/fulfillment issues." The analyst thinks that the company's Q1 comp sales may have dropped 2%. He keeps a Sell rating on the stock.

Advance Auto Parts upgraded to Buy from Hold at Gabelli
Gabelli analyst Carolina Jolly upgraded Advance Auto Parts to Buy with a PMV of $186 saying the recent share weakness reflects complexities surrounding inventory rationalization. The analyst increased his long-term free cash flow estimates to reflect management's focus on free cash conversion and improving algorithms for inventory optimization, which should result in margin growth in 2018.

JPMorgan sees buying opportunities in Autoparts Retailing
The recent selloff of names in Autoparts Retailing from weather and Amazon.com (AMZN) competition has created an attractive buying opportunity for the group, JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers tells investors in a research note. The analyst views AutoZone (AZO) as the most attractive from a valuation standpoint. He has Overweight ratings on the shares as well as Advance Auto Parts (AAP). Horvers is surprised Neutral-rated O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) has sold off this much given its "best-in-class execution and lower weather risk." The risk from Amazon is "at worst glacial and likely a lot more manageable than the stocks are saying," the analyst writes. He feels bad news is already priced into the group.
