WPP CEO says Whole Foods deal could up Amazon's ad game, WSJ says

WPP (WPPGY) CEO Martin Sorrell said Amazon's (AMZN) $13.4B acquisition of Whole Foods (WFM) could add to the e-commerce giant's ability to affect how and where WPP clients spend their money, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing an interview with Sorrell. The deal "is going to change the way clients control their budgets and think about their budgets in a meaningful way," Sorrell said. Reference Link

WPP PLC downgraded to Hold from Buy at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded WPP PLC and other names in the Internet/Advertising space citing a riskier political environment post the U.S. election. Valuations do not appropriately reflect that the environment for stocks and companies is riskier now than was the case several months ago, Wieser tells investors in a research note. He believes "significant factions" within the government support "mercantilism and populism," creating uncertainty as to what policies will take effect.

Competing Whole Foods bid of $50 or higher 'not unrealistic,' says Barclays
Barclays analyst Karen Short said a potential strategic bidders for Whole Foods (WFM) can "rationally outbid" Amazon (AMZN) based on the roughly $750M in synergies she estimates for a buyer such as Kroger (KR) or Wal-Mart (WMT). For Kroger, she estimates that a 100% debt-financed bid at $50 could be about 6% accretive, and a Whole Foods bid up to $60 would still be accretive. For Wal-Mart, a 100% debt-financed bid at $50 could be about 2% accretive, though a could still be accretive bid up to $70 per share, she tells investors. Whole Foods was not "shopped," based on public documents, and the math indicates a superior, competing bid is "feasible," said Short, who also notes that Amazon could then outbid any other offer. Short has an Overweight rating and $48 price target on Whole Foods shares.

Hain Celestial guidance seems overly ambitious, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Strycula noted Hain Celestial (HAIN) management was upbeat following Q3 earnings but feels guidance was overly ambitious, which overshadowed pockets of favorable changes. The analyst said questions remain regarding price gaps, rising private label mix within organic categories, and the implications from the merger of Amazon (AMZN) and Whole Foods (WFM). Strycula reiterated his Sell rating and lowered his price target to $31 from $33 on Hain Celestial shares.

JPMorgan has 'hard time' seeing bidder topping Amazon deal for Whole Foods
Noting that Whole Foods (WFM) shares continue to trade above Amazon's (AMZN) agreed upon buying price of $42 per share, and that at least two other firm's raised their price targets above the deal price, JPMorgan's analyst team of Ken Goldman, Chris Horvers, and Doug Anmuth discussed their views on whether another strategic bidder is likely to top Amazon's takeover price with a rival bid. They have a "hard time seeing" Kroger (KR), Costco (COST), or Target (TGT) doing so, and while acknowledging that Wal-Mart (WMT) could make a bid, they think that its chance to beat out Amazon appears low and that Wal-Mart's primary opportunity is online, not grocery. The team concludes that they "don't believe a serious bid comes out of Bentonville that wouldn't be countered."

Foot Locker remains a key partner of Nike, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Camilo Lyon said Nike (NKE) remains a key partner of Foot Locker (FL) and gave five reasons why the former's partnership with Amazon (AMZN) would not hurt them. He said Foot Locker helps commercialize Nike's innovations; more than 60% of its customers pay in cash and are less likely to use Amazon; the company has created a thriving environment for sneaker culture that intersects with local communities; the assortment on Amazon would be more mainstream, posing a bigger threat to department stores; and Foot Locker could reduce orders and shift purchases to other brands. Lyon reiterated his Buy rating and $75 price target on Foot Locker shares.

Target cut to Neutral at Citi as top competitors 'change the game'
As previously reported, Citi analyst Kate McShane downgraded Target (TGT) to Neutral from Buy and lowered her price target on the retailer's stock to $56 from $63. Target's two main competitors - namely Wal-Mart (WMT) and Amazon (AMZN) - have "very quickly changed the game" with their recent deals for Jet.com, Bonobos and Whole Foods (WFM), said McShane. With Target already under pressure and its key differentiator, Signature, decelerating, the analyst thinks revenue growth will be tougher to achieve absent a "game changing move" of its own.
