Amazon says Whole Foods deal has $400M termination fee

In a regulatory filing, Amazon (AMZN) said Whole Foods (WFM) "will be obligated to pay a fee equal to $400M if the Merger Agreement is terminated (i) by the company because the Whole Foods Market board of directors has changed its recommendation of the Merger prior to the Whole Foods Market shareholder approval having been obtained, or (ii) by Whole Foods Market if, prior to the time the Whole Foods Market shareholder approval is obtained, Whole Foods Market enters into an Alternative Acquisition Agreement that provides for a Superior Proposal. Whole Foods Market will also be required to pay the Termination Fee in certain other circumstances if the Merger Agreement is terminated and Whole Foods Market or any of its subsidiaries enters into a definitive agreement with respect to, or consummates, an Acquisition Proposal."

Carter's positioned for multiple expansion, says FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson says shares of Carter's (CRI) have been pressured by concerns over exposure to department stores. The analyst, however, believes the department store weakness is more than offset with Amazon/Skip Hop growth. Further, the analyst thinks the company's Q2 is "trending significantly better" than Q1 based on "solid spendtrend data" for children's. She expects Carter's to see multiple expansion and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $111 price target.

Amazon.com price target raised to $1,100 from $975 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Anthony DiClemente says that Amazon's (AMZN) current valuation is "reasonable." The analyst says that, assuming the cloud business is worth $220B, based on a 2020 multiple similar to that given Microsoft (MSFT), while its Prime video business is worth $8B, or 12% of Netflix's (NFLX) current valuation, and its advertising business is worth $27B, or double his estimate of Snap's (SNAP) total valuation, the company's e-commerce business is only being valued at about $210B at current levels. Noting that Wal-Mart (WMT) is currently valued at $280B, the analyst says that Amazon's valuation "is not excessively strencthed." DiClemente raised his 2020 EV/EBITDA multiple for the cloud business to 14x from 13.5x, noting that SAP (SAP), Oracle (ORCL) and Microsoft (MSFT) all had higher multiples at similar points in their histories. The analyst raised his target multiple for Amazon's North America e-commerce business to 13x from 12x, which he says is in-line with Wal-Mart's mean multiple from 1992-2001. He raised his price target on Amazon to $1,100 from $975 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

FANG fundamentals still strong but stocks may moderate, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Michael Graham noted the FANG stocks - Facebook (FB),Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX), and Google parent Alphabet (GOOG) - outpaced the S&P by a great deal and he feels even though fundamentals remain strong, the shares' momentum may begin to moderate. Graham believes most of the growth opportunities in tech remain with the FANG group but he believes valuations are quite reasonable. He downgraded Alphabet to Hold from Buy and believes that Amazon is the one to own long-term.

Amazon price target raised to $1,100 from $975 at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Anthony DiClemente raised his price target on Amazon.com to $1,100 from $975, citing a change in valuation to account for the company's expanding addressable markets as it continues to dominate its core e-commerce business while investing in new areas. Despite EPS and EBITDA forecasts recently moving higher, the stock continues to rise, which DiClemente attributes to optimism for Alexa/AI, the company's large advertising opportunity, and video growth initiatives. He keeps a Buy rating on Amazon shares.

Hold
Whole Foods initiated with a Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf started Whole Foods Market (WFM) with a Hold rating and $35 price target. Chains like Kroger (KR) and Costco (COST) are taking most of the growth in natural foods, which leaves few opportunities for natural foods retailers such as Whole Foods, Wolf tells investors in a research note. A takeout of the company in its current fundamental condition would like fetch $40 per share, the analyst adds.

Whole Foods comp sales goals at risk, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Kelly Bania says that there is risk to Whole Foods' comp sales goals. The goals are partly based on data from affinity programs that were only tested in Philadelphia, Dallas, and four 365 stores, the analyst stated. Additionally, Bania views the company's EBITDA margin target goal as "aggressive." Bania keeps an Underperform rating on the stock.

Whole Foods Q2 comps, EPS likely to beat expectations, says RBC Capital
After conducting checks, RBC Capital analyst William Kirk says that Whole Foods' comp sales growth accelerated in Q2, while it has also benefited from easing produce deflation. The analyst expects the company's Q2 comp sales growth and EPS to beat expectations. Kirk thinks that any weakness following the results "will be bought" due to "activist pressure" on the company. He reiterates a $42 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.
