Michael Kors guidance underscores broader challenges ahead, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Camilo Lyon noted Michael Kors beat Q4 estimates but said its weaker guidance underscores the broader challenges ahead for the company. Lyon said the company is finally taking aggressive course-correcting action to enhance the brand's position along with cost-savings. The analyst said the macro challenges in the U.S. and Europe remain and there is significant execution risk at hand. Lyon maintained his Hold rating and lowered his price target to $33 from $38 on Michael Kors shares.

Michael Kors store closures positive for Coach, says UBS
UBS analyst Michael Binetti noted Michael Kors (KORS) announced plans to start closing stores and it is assumed they will be skewed to North America. The analyst believes Michael Kors has been the number one competitive pressure for Coach (COH) over the past five years so its decision to close stores now relieves the company of its number one headwind. He now believes Coach is well positioned as a market share gainer. Binetti reiterated his Buy rating and $55 price target on Coach shares.

The analyst says that the guidance miss was caused by one-time factors, and he thinks that the stock's valuation is attractive. Agha says that the shares have reached an attractive entry point, and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Kate Spade (KATE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Oliver Chen saying he continues to believe the company has a healthy distribution footprint but he is cautious on both outlet and tourism pressure, a tepid handbag environment, and the potential for 2017 estimates to be too high. 2.

Investors should be selective in 'tired' athletic category, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Camilo Lyon said the athletic retail category is tired due to both the Amazon (AMZN) effect and the deceleration in North America that tipped last year when The Sports Authority and other sporting retailers went bankrupt. The analyst believes apathy about owning retail also weighs on the group, but it is ignoring the cyclical issue. He believes investors should be more selective and lowered his price target on Foot Locker (FL) to $64 from $75, on Dick's (DKS) to $52 from $54 and on Hibbett Sports (HIBB) to $22 from $25.

Overweight
Foot Locker upgraded to Overweight on recent share weakness at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley upgraded Foot Locker (FL) to Overweight from Equal Weight and trimmed its price target to $65 from $70. Analyst Jay Sole believes share weakness related to investor concerns surrounding share loss to Amazon (AMZN) and brands' own websites has created an "excellent" buying opportunity. The analyst said Amazon and Foot Locker target different segments, with less than 5% of Foot Locker's 200 top selling shoes on Amazon, and brands desire the strong, premium mall presence that Foot Locker provides. Sole thinks recent weak comp performance was due to changing fashion trends, February's tax refund shift, and weaker sales in basketball footwear and for the company to surprise the Street by returning to 3%-5% comp growth in upcoming quarters.

The analyst forecasts a "solid" quarter for TransDigm's defense business. He thinks aftermarket volumes "may continue to be lumpy" despite "fairly high" expectations for the end markets. The analyst believes profitability will continue to provide upside and keeps a Buy rating on TransDigm.
