Democratic Rep calls for oversight hearing on Amazon-Whole Foods tie-up

Democratic House Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island wrote a letter to the Republican leaders of the House Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law, requested that the committee hold an oversight hearing on Amazon's (AMZN) proposed takeover of Whole Foods (WFM). Cicilline said in the letter that he has heard concerns that the merger may discourage innovation and entrance into emerging markets, such as grocery and food delivery. The Rep added that some have raised concerns that the deal will also increase Amazon's online dominance, enabling it to "prioritize its products and services over competitors." "Without taking a position on the legality of the transaction under the antitrust laws, Amazon's proposed acquisition of Whole Foods raised important questions concerning competition policy, such as how the transaction will affect the future of retail grocery stores, whether platform dominance impedes innovation, and if the antitrust laws are working effectively to ensure economic opportunity, choice, and low prices for American families," Cicilline said in the letter.

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.

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.

Conviction Buy
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.

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.

Survey suggests Costco weakness may be overdone, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan says that a survey by his firm indicates that Costco (COST) shoppers are more concerned about selection, while Amazon (AMZN) shoppers are more concerned about convenience. As a result, the analyst thinks that "the longer term impact" of the Whole Foods (WFM) deal may be less negative for Costco than its shares indicate. He keeps a Buy rating on Costco.

Vantiv acquisition defensive near-term, strategic long-term, says RBC Capital
After Vantiv (VNTV) agreed to buy Worldpay, RBC Capital analyst Daniel Perlin says that the deal is "defensive today" because of "weakness in big-box mall retail," deflationary grocery pricing, after the Whole Foods (WFM) deal, and "the looming threat of JPMorgan's (JPM) closed-loop network potentially driving down acquiring fees." But the analyst thinks that the deal will certainly create value over the long-term, due to Worldpay's global platform and the fact that its aggregate revenue yields are about 47% higher than those of Vantiv. The analyst keeps a $73 price target and an Outperform rating on Vantiv.
