Casper closes $170M Series C funding round led by Target

Global sleep company Casper announces the close of a $170M Series C investment round. The new investment was led by Target and includes Tresalia, IVP, Norwest, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, NEA, and Irving Capital. High-profile entertainers and athletes also join the round - including Kevin Spacey, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Carmelo Anthony, Kyrie Irving, Shaun White, and Andre Iguodala - bringing the total funding to date to $240M. The company will expand its R&D capabilities with the launch of a design lab in San Francisco, a facility and engineering team dedicated to developing new products to complete the Casper ecosystem - from re-designed soft goods to the future of connected sleep. The funding will also enable the digitally-first brand to traverse online and offline distribution at scale.

Target Q1 comps likely ahead, but outlook remains cautious, says Cleveland
Cleveland Research analyst Scott Bender said Target sales appear to have improved in Q1 against easier comps and sees upside to consensus comp expectations for the quarter. However, the channel outlook remains cautious as there are concerns that EDLP could hurt sales, and the merchandising re-organization could cause disruptions. Bender has a Neutral rating on Target.

Target Q1 results a positive step, but visibility still low, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said Target's Q1 earnings beat was "a step in the right direction," but he adds that the bar was low and visibility remain limited. Week-to-week results remain volatile and driving positive comps remains the key for a re-rating of the stock, contends Benedict, who keeps a Neutral rating and $55 price target on Target shares.

Barclays upgrades Whole Foods on potential for bidding war
As previously reported, Barclays analyst Karen Short upgraded Whole Foods (WFM) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised her price target on the stock to $48 from $38, telling investors that she would not be surprised to see a bidding war break out following Amazon's (AMZN) announcement of a takeover agreement. Short, who thinks a strategic retail buyer would generate up to $600M in synergies from a deal to buy Whole Foods, said bidders could include Kroger (KR), Target (TGT), and Wal-Mart (WMT), all of which may "have too much to lose not to bid."

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.
