J.C. Penney turnaround efforts 'just not working,' says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Omar Saad said he is liquidating the 1.3% J.C. Penney Long Position initiated in the firm's Model Portfolio in April with the stock down 30% during that time. While acknowledging he "may be pulling the plug at the bottom," he said the company is doing everything in its power to keep its turnaround on track but efforts just are not working. Asset sales are not a sustainable long-term solution and cost-cutting initiatives are beginning to take a toll on operations, as evidenced by the jump in shrinkage that may be linked to understaffing, said Saad.

Buy
J.C. Penney gross margin pressures abate in second half, says Northcoast
Northcoast analyst Kara Szafraniec said J.C. Penney shares reacted severely to the Q2 gross margin disappointment, driven largely by the closing of 127 stores. The analyst believes the liquidation of the stores was the right move and management's commentary on the go-forward business was largely encouraging. J.C. Penny's growth categories continue to outpace the chain average and the company remains positioned to defend itself in the current weak apparel environment, Szafraniec wrote. He believes the gross margin pressures will abate in the second half and reiterates his Buy rating and $9 price target.
