Doug Kass says possible U.S. antitrust opposition to Amazon, MarketWatch says

According to an article out earlier, from MarketWatch, Douglas Kass, head of Seabreeze Partners Management, said that he is shorting Amazon, "because I have learned that there are currently early discussions and due diligence being considered in the legislative chambers in Washington DC with regard to possible antitrust opposition to Amazon's business practices, pricing strategy and expansion announcements already made (as well as being aimed at expansion strategies being considered in the future," wrote Kass, head of Seabreeze Partners Management."

Baird sees Fastenal as potential Amazon target, upgrades to Outperform
Baird analyst David Manthey upgraded Fastenal (FAST) to Outperform from Neutral with a $53 price target following this morning's Q2 results. The analyst attributes the intraday selloff to peer MSC Industrial's (MSM) comments on gross margin and believes the "upside case is too compelling to ignore." Fastenal, because it owns the last mile, is the most likely acquisition candidate by Amazon.com (AMZN), Manthey tells investors in a research note. The analyst likes the company's "seasonal setup" and improving fundamentals despite the later-cycle environment. The distributor of industrial and construction supplies is off its lows but remains down 3% to $42.09 in midday trading.

Wal-Mart upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler upgraded Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) to Conviction Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $84 from $78. The retailing giant closed yesterday up $1.11 to $75.05. Wal-Mart is as well positioned as any mass market retailer to handle Amazon.com's (AMZN) increased focus on consumables as well as the "uncertain" retail environment, Fassler tells investors in a research note. The analyst Wal-Mart's small-market focus and current inventory discipline. He notes that his earnings forecasts are above consensus for the next two fiscal years. Fassler this morning also upgraded Ulta Beauty (ULTA) to Conviction Buy from Neutral.

Amazon can be big threat to Williams-Sonoma, says Barclays
Following an analysis that compares product overlap, Barclays analyst Matthew McClintock believes Amazon.com (AMZN) can be a "considerable threat" to Williams-Sonoma (WSM). The analyst estimates that 50% of the first 10 "Top Rated" items by category listed on Williams-Sonoma's website have exact overlap with Amazon. Further, McClintock found that Amazon beat on price on 50 of the 69 items, or 73%. The analyst says he's bearish on Williams-Sonoma following his analysis. In a research note titled "The Next AMZN Shoe to Drop?", he keeps an Underweight rating on the shares with a $40 price target.

JPMorgan keeps Underweight on Nordstrom after management meetings
JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss keeps an Underweight rating on Nordstrom (JWN) after meeting management at the company's headquarters. Management would not comment on their evaluation of strategic alternatives and the meeting was reshuffled to exclude members of the Nordstrom family while incoming CFO Anne Bramman attended but did not actively participate, Boss tells investors in a research note. The analyst views the company's EBITDA roadmap as "increasingly uncertain" with a greater emphasis on fashion to differentiate mix versus Amazon.com (AMZN) and rising costs of customer acquisition. He believes the retailer's fundamental multi-year risk profile is elevated.
