Estee Lauder [rice target raised to $110 from $100 at Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh raised his price target for Estee Lauder (EL) to $110 from $100 as he still sees the potential for outperformance. Accelerating momentum in key international markets, strong performance of recent acquisitions, strengthening partnerships with Ulta Beauty (ULTA) and Sephora, and the potential for an improved earnings backdrop in 2018 and 2019 could drive further upside in shares, he contends. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Estee Lauder's shares and says he continues to rank it as his top pick across his coverage universe.

Estee Lauder stronger focus on specialty retailers will be positive, says Stifel
After meeting with Ulta Beauty (ULTA), Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan says that Estee Lauder's (EL) increased emphasis on specialty retailers " will diversify the company's exposure from weaker channels like U.S. mid-tier department stores. " The analyst quotes Ulta as saying that the launch of Estee's largest brand by Ulta will enable Estee to attract new customers. He expects Ulta to add additional Estee Lauder brands in the future. The analyst raised his price target on Estee Lauder to $108 from $98 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

e.l.f. started rolling out in Ulta Beauty this week, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy says her store checks indicate e.l.f. Beauty (ELF) started rolling out into 170-190 Ulta Beauty (ULTA) doors earlier this week. The analyst is "optimistic" that this in-store launch can be broader over time. Further, her channel checks in the U.K. indicate "broad strength" of sales at Superdrug. Checks suggest e.l.f.'s distribution growth initiatives remain on track and that it remains a share gainer, Murphy tells investors in a research note. She still sees the company as a potential takeout candidate "with time." The analyst has an Overweight rating on e.l.f. with a $34 price target.

Facebook (FB) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Pivotal Research with analyst Brian Wieser saying the shares are not factoring in risks to the company's growth following their "remarkable run" this year. 2. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Rupesh Parikh saying softer commentary from L'Oreal on its earnings call, increasing promotional activity from the department store channel, and more difficult year-over-year comparisons "could now signal a potentially more challenging beauty backdrop going forward." 3. Hertz (HTZ) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Brian Johnson saying fundamentals may have bottomed, but the stock is ignoring the challenges ahead in the company's earnings recovery following the nearly 100% rally since June 21. 4. Citi (C) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst James Fotheringham citing valuation and lack of catalysts. 5. Visteon (VC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Colin Langan saying the risk/reward is more balanced with the shares up 60% over the last year.

Ulta Beauty weakness a buying opportunity, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Oliver Chen recommends buying Ulta Beauty on its pullback as he believes department store promotional fears are overblown. He also thinks the company's loyalty, brand access, and mass offerings enable it to protect its market shares, and its current valuation makes the shares more attractive. Chen reiterated his Outperform rating and $336 price target on Ulta Beauty shares.
