BTIG sees Lowe's beating earnings expectations next week
BTIG analyst Alan Rifkin expects Lowe's (LOW) to top earnings expectations when reporting Q2 results next Wednesday, August 23. The analyst's $1.63 estimate is 1c above consensus expectations. He expects a "strong" Q2 comp of 5.5%. Rifkin thinks appliance concerns from Kenmore's agreement to sell through Amazon (AMZN) are overblown and he keeps a Buy rating on Lowe's with a $95 price target.

Jefferies sees Home Depot outperforming Lowe's in Q2
Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder says his field checks for Home Depot (HD) showed a strong Q2. He expects the retailer's comp sales to outperform those of Lowe's (LOW). Seasonal, building supplies and pro were strengths for both companies, but Home Depot performed better overall, Binder tells investors in an earnings preview. The analyst has a Buy rating on Home Depot and Hold rating on Lowe's.

Home Depot, Lowe's, Best Buy selloff yesterday overdone, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder views the selloff yesterday in shares of Home Depot (HD), Lowe's (LOW) and Best Buy (BBY) on news that Sears (SLD) would sell Alexa-integrated Kenmore appliances through Amazon (AMZN) as overdone. While Amazon shouldn't be underestimated, appliance transactions are complex and Kenmore brand equity has declined, Binder tells investors in a research note. He does not believe the Sears deal is an indicator that more appliance manufacturers will sell direct via Amazon.

Home Depot, Lowe's should be bought on dip, says Stifel
Stifel analyst John Baugh noted two events that may be contributing to today's weakness in shares of both Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW) - Sears' (SHLD) launch of Kenmore products on Amazon (AMZN) and weaker than expected results from paint maker and retailer Sherwin-Williams (SHW) - adding that he suspects the Amazon news "might be the bigger influencer." Stating that Amazon had already indicated its interest in the appliance business and he doesn't believe Sherwin-Williams is a meaningful read-through to the two bigger companies, Baugh recommended that investors use the dip in the home improvement retailers' stock to buy.

She expects American Eagle will continue to take market share over the next few years.

Abercrombie's inability to land a deal not surprising, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik believes the termination of Abercrombie & Fitch's (ANF) deal talks is not surprising given the retailer's "deteriorating fundamentals" and his view that "concept acquisitions destroy shareholder value." The analyst continues to prefer American Eagle (AEO) in the "challenged" teen apparel space and keeps a Hold rating on Abercrombie with a $13 price target.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Cantor with analyst Kip Paulson saying he believes the risk/reward has shifted significantly following yesterday's expiration of the largest remaining lock-up period and the 8.5% share decline since Snap's second quarter earnings report. 2. GoPro (GPRO) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Doug Clark saying GoPro is on track to launch a new HERO6 camera in the second half of 2017, and product launches have historically been a positive catalyst for the stock. 3. NetApp (NTAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Joe Wittine citing a survey which showed that the company's share gains have continued. 4. American Eagle (AEO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at FBR Capital with analyst Susan Anderson saying the valuation "has become very attractive." 5. Zynerba (ZYNE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Roth Capital with analyst Michael Higgins saying he was not bullish on yesterday's failed ZYN002 in osteoarthritis study.

FBR lowers Specialty Retail price targets ahead of Q2 reports
FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson expects Specialty Retail earnings in Q2 to be overall in-line with consensus estimates, with a lighter top line and gross margin given the need to promote to drive traffic. The analyst views American Eagle (AEO) and L Brands (LB) as winners in the quarter. She upgraded American Eagle this morning to Buy. Anderson also lowered her price target for Neutral-rated Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) to $11 from $13, for Neutral-rated Ascena Retail (ASNA) to $3 from $5, for Neutral-rated Foot Locker (FL) to $58 from $66, for Neutral-rated Francesca's to $10 from $13, for Neutral-rated Gap (GPS) to $25 from $28 and for Neutral-rated Urban Outfitters (URBN) to $16 from $24.

Binetti noted the company guidance implies cautious trends for Q1, giving him little confidence trends will improve in 2017. Binetti reiterated his Sell rating and lowered his price target to $8 from $10 on Express shares.

Express price target cut to $7.50 from $10.50 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Jay Sole said Express' shift to online is proving "hugely disruptive" as comps have declined at least 8% in each of the past four quarters. The analyst sees risk that mall traffic declines faster than Express can optimize stores and now valuations the stock primarily on the online business. Sole lowered his FY17 earnings estimate to 40c from 65c and cut Express' price target to $7.50 and maintained an Equal Weight rating.
