Buy
Kohl's assumed with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik assumed coverage of Kohl's (KSS) with a Buy rating and $48 price target. The analyst views the valuation as attractive amid negative sentiment and left recent store visits encouraged with trends in Active and the "positive reception" for Under Armour (UA, UAA) product.

Under Armour still expensive despite 25% decline, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva says shares of Under Armour (UAA) remain expensive even with the 25% pullback year-to-date. The Q1 decline in North America sales is likely to continue in Q2 as the addition of Kohl's (KSS) isn't enough to offset store bankruptcies and a "choppy environment," Andreeva tells investors in a research note. She points out that Under Armour's annual sales guidance assumes North America recovers in the second half of 2017, aided by new distribution and expansion in existing franchises. Andreeva believes, however, that Nike's (NKE) focus on its own stores and adidas' (ADDYY) ongoing momentum may be too tough for Under Armour to overcome. The analyst keeps a Perform rating on the shares and her estimates for 2017 and 2018 remain below consensus.

Macy's financial modeling worrisome, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Oliver Chen said the rapid transformation of consumers' shopping preferences presents ongoing challenges to Macy's and other retailers. He said the company needs to reinvent promotional techniques that currently are yielding poor store traffic and higher markdowns. Chen said from a financial modeling perspective he is worried, leading him to maintain his Market Perform rating on Macy's shares and cut his price target to $29 from $44.

Nike-Amazon pact yet another department store headwind, says Gordon Haskett
Gordon Haskett analyst noted the reports of Nike (NKE) nearing a deal to sell directly on Amazon (AMZN), which he said wouldn't impact trends overnight but would represent another headwind for department stores, particularly J.C. Penney (JCP) and Kohl's (KSS), where the brand has a larger penetration than at Macy's (M) and Nordstrom (JWN). He keeps an Accumulate rating on Nordstrom, a Hold rating on Macy's and Reduce rating on both J.C. Penney and Kohl's.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying the bull thesis on Tesla centers around the company becoming the next Amazon (AMZN) or Apple (AAPL), Jonas tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, questions if the risks of taking on the tech giants is sufficiently discounted in the share price. He expects "much larger and more well capitalized" competitors to unveil strategies that directly address sustainable transport and mobility. 2. J.C. Penney (JCP) was downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, to Neutral from Outperform at Baird, and to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham. 3. STMicroelectronics (STM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel. 4. Level 3 (LVLT) and CenturyLink (CTL) were downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 5. TSMC (TSM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Randy Abrams saying headwinds from excess inventory, slower China smartphones, and Qualcomm (QCOM) shifts to Samsung (SSNLF) could pressure sales and margins.
