Costco shares still fell despite good quarter, Barron's says

Since Amazon (AMZN) announced its acquisition of Whole Foods, Costco (COST) has been "on the ropes," Ben Levisohn writes in this week's edition of Barron's. The retailer shares have dropped 12% since then, even as the company delivers earnings beats and same-store sales increases, he adds. Reference Link

Costco downgraded on EPS growth slowdown at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman downgraded Costco to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that after its Q4 report last night he has cut his FY18 EPS growth estimate to $6.30. Moderating membership growth also led him to lower his EBITDA multiples, said Gutman, who added that the combination of decelerating EPS growth and "membership slippage" may make it tough for the stock to outperform. Gutman lowered his price target to $165 from $190 on Costco shares, which are down 4.5% to $159.50 in pre-market trading following last night's quarterly report.

Costco has some of the best traffic growth in retail, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli said Costco reported better than expected Q4 results as total comps increased 5.7% versus his 5.3% estimate and consensus of 5.1%, while gross margin pressures were largely offset by expense leverage. Despite investors fears regarding risk from e-commerce, the analyst said Costco continues to have some of the best traffic growth in retail and is gaining traction from its own e-commerce initiates. Ciccarelli said he remains a buyer of Costo and increased his price target on shares to $190 from $184 and reiterated his Outperform rating on shares.

Any post-earnings pullback in Costco provides a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict noted Costco reported better than expected Q4 earnings and said it remains a compelling growth staple idea with its healthy fundamentals and an improved valuation profile. The analyst said any pullback in Costco share would be a good buying opportunity and shares look attractive at current levels. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $200 price target on Costco shares.

New CEO to tackle distribution concerns at Vista Outdoor, says Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Dave King says that despite the announcement of a new CEO hire by Vista Outdoor (VSTO), he still remains concerned about the "sustainability of Vista's distribution competitive advantage" and soft performance from recent acquisitions. King writes that incoming CEO Chris Metz brings extensive experience in driving operational improvements, as the company continues to focus on expanding its e-commerce presence and possibly grow its business with Amazon (AMZN). The analyst is also positive on the opportunity to capture market share in the ammo downturn, maintaining a Neutral rating and his $21 price target on Vista.

Leerink convinced Amazon entering drug distribution within two years
After calls with pharmacy benefit managers and retail pharmacy specialists, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says she's convinced that Amazon.com (AMZN) "will almost certainly" enter the drug distribution value chain within two years, evolving into a more disruptive offering over time. Amazon's move is most threatening for retail pharmacies Walgreens Boots Alliance (WAB), CVS Health (CVS) and Wal-Mart (WMT), Gupte tells investors in a research note. The analyst calls Amazon both an opportunity and threat for Express Scripts (ESRX) and views UnitedHealth (UNH) and Humana (HUM) as "largely buffered." Gupte's conversations with specialists indicate Amazon is hiring relevant talent and is in active discussions with mid-market pharmacy benefit managers and possibly even with large players such as Prime Therapeutics. It is believed Amazon will start by capturing share in both the cash paying and third party mail order and possibly specialty pharmacy segments, Gupte notes. She expects Anthem (ANTM), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI) will likely to contemplate Amazon's entry in their upcoming PBM contract decisions.

Amazon implications negative for FedEx, UPS, says Baird
Baird analyst Benjamin Hartford noted reports Amazon (AMZN) is testing its own final mile delivery service in the U.S. and he believes it is a logical extension of its model as it builds network density. The analyst believes the implications for parcel providers FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS) are negative, as it could put pressure on delivery rates and volume may be diverted from both. Hartford continues to rate FedEx with an Outperform and $235 price target and UPS remains Neutral rated with a $125 price target.

Amazon's Seller Flex expansion unlikely to impact Stamps.com, says B. Riley
B. Riley analyst Kevin Liu believes Amazon.com's (AMZN) plans to expand its Seller Flex program more broadly in 2018 following a two-year pilot in India and testing in West Coast states, as reported yesterday by Bloomberg, is unlikely to impact Stamps.com (STMP). The Seller Flex program Seller Flex arranges for the pickup and delivery of merchandise from the seller's distribution facility, which could potentially impact volumes currently routed through the major domestic carriers, Liu tells investors in a research note. He believes FedEx (FDX) and UPS (UPS) have the most to lose given their exposure to large shippers. The analyst sees "little risk at present" to Stamps.com given that Seller Flex is targets merchants with a "far greater" assortment, order volumes, and logistical footprint than is typically targeted by the company's various brands. Liu reiterates a Buy rating on Stamps.com with a $250 price target.
