Cowen continues to favor Wal-Mart over Target despite turnaround progress
Cowen analyst Oliver Chen said Target's (TGT) positive pre-announcement and Wal-Mart's (WMT) momentum give him confidence about Q2, but his firm's proprietary survey indicates cautious trends in the quarter, including declines in visitor rates, declines in satisfaction, and growth in visitor overlap with Amazon (AMZN). While acknowledging that Target's turnaround remains on track, he said he still prefers Wal-Mart shares. Chen maintains his Outperform rating and $86 price target on Wal-Mart shares and his Market Perform rating on Target shares.
