Wal-Mart outlook still positive after Whole Foods deal, says KeyBanc

KeyBanc says that Wal-Mart (WMT) stock should be bought in the wake of the Whole Foods (WFM) deal, as the firm remains confident in Wal-Mart's ability to achieve 5%-9% earnings growth in fiscal 2018. The analyst says that the market shares of both Amazon and Wal-Mart have room to grow, and it believes that Amazon will continue to skew towards upper class Americans in the wake of the Whole Foods deal. The firm keeps a $90 price target and an Outperform rating on Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart, Costco weakness on Amazon news a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said he we views Amazon's (AMZN) deal to buy Whole Foods (WFM) as reinforcing the value of local distribution and he believes Wal-Mart (WMT) and Costco (COST) are particularly well positioned to compete in the omni-channel grocery market. The analyst, who recommends using today's weakness in those two stocks as a buying opportunity, keeps an Outperform rating on both, while maintaining a Neutral rating on Target (TGT), noting that he thinks today's news "raises the bar" on its need to find an effective strategy to turn its grocery business.

Costco downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell downgraded Costco (COST) to Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $172 from $187. Positive pipeline catalysts have played out while competition is intensifying with Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wal-Mart (WMT) accelerating in-store and online efforts, Trussell tells investors in a research note titled "Past Its Prime? Downgrade to Hold." He believes Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods (WFM) is a "game changer" for Costco's "competitive moat in grocery."

Amazon Prime the long-term driver of retail business, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge said Amazon's (AMZN) Prime service is the long-term driver of its retail business and as they continuously improve their value proposition, it will drive higher Prime subscriptions and further market share gains. Those gains may have a negative impact on Costco (COST) and Sam's Club (WMT) as the warehouse clubs have seen opposite trends as Prime has increased subscriptions, added Blackledge, who reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,125 price target on Amazon.com shares.

Wal-Mart, Costco could be hurt by Whole Foods deal, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli warns that Wal-Mart (WMT) and Costco (COST) could be hurt by the Whole Foods deal. The analyst says that "combining Whole Foods' high-end reputation with a logistics juggernaut like Amazon is clearly a danger" to Costco and Walmart. He thinks that Whole Foods could extend the hours in which it allows customers to buy products online and pick them up in stores, and he thinks that food delivery could become much more popular in the wake of the deal. He notes that Wal-Mart has spent a great deal of time and money on "improving its fresh and omni-channel offerings." The analyst says that Costco will be more protected due to what he sees as its "differentiated retail experience."

Food retailers, distributors weakness overdone, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Bill Kirk says that the weakness in food retailers and distributors in reaction to Amazon's (AMZN) acquisition of Whole Foods (WFM) was overdone. The analyst says he doesn't expect Amazon to "drastically change" the prices in Whole Foods' physical stores. Instead, he expects it to exploit the company's brand through Prime and its "high-population density real estate." Other food retailers include Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) and Kroger (KR), while Smart & Final Stores (SFS) and Supervalu (SVU) are food distributors.

Concerns over dollar stores 'way overdone,' says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli says that concerns about the dollar stores in the wake of the Whole Foods deal were "way overdone,." The analyst thinks that they compete in "a very different segment and customer base" than Whole Foods. Publicly traded dollar stores include Family Dollar (FDO) and Dollar General (DG).

Blackhawk should be bought on weakness after Whole Foods deal, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Oscar Turner notes that Blackhawk's (HAWK) stock fell 3% after Amazon (AMZN) announced that it's acquiring Whole Foods (WFM). The analyst notes that both Amazon and Whole Foods partner with Blackhawk, and he expects Blackhawk's deal with Whole Foods to continue in the wake of the deal. The analyst adds that the deal proves that the physical supermarket distribution model remains relevant. He says that Blackhawk's "commanding share will mitigate" any decrease in supermarket foot traffic, and he recommends buying the stock on weakness. Turner keeps a $50 price target and a Buy rating on the stock.
