Time to rethink how to play Wal-Mart, Barron's says

Wal-Mart (WMT) has had a good run, so it is time to rethink how to play the stock, Steven Sears writes in this week's edition of Barron's. The sell-side analyst community may spend the next few months getting bullish on Wal-Mart's digital future, while realizing that more than 4,000 retail stores offer competitive advantages, Sears noted, adding that the November earnings report should provide additional evidence for "analysts to update earnings models, raise price targets, and hike investment ratings."

Outperform
Wal-Mart investor meeting reinforces positive view, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said the Wal-Mart investors meeting reinforced his positive view on the shares. He said its portfolio of assets, focused and aligned management team, and multiple levers will help it deliver on its commitments to consumers and the company remains well positioned for continued success. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $90 price target on Wal-Mart shares, which rose 4.5% to close at $84.13 yesterday following the meeting.

Hold
Wal-Mart price target raised to $85 from $79 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan said after attending Wal-Mart's investor meeting that he believes that its momentum is continuing and he attributes yesterday's share price outperformance in part to relief as concerns were heightened heading into the meeting that costs and/ or reinvestment would result in below consensus FY19 EPS guidance, which was not the case. He raised his price target on Wal-Mart shares to $85 from $79 but maintains his Hold rating, citing valuation.

Wal-Mart downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Matthew Fassler removed Wal-Mart from the Conviction Buy List and maintained a Buy rating. The analyst continues to maintain estimates above consensus for 2018 but said shares have achieved in three months what he had expected in a year on an improvement in sentiment, but not on higher earnings estimates. Fassler raised Wal-Mart's price target to $91 from $87 and said drivers remain compelling.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matthew Fassler saying shares have achieved in three months what he had expected in a year on an improvement in sentiment, but not on higher earnings estimates. 2. Monro (MNRO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Bret Jordan citing expectations the company's earnings growth will slow in 2018 as its focus shifts from acquisitions to improving store-level execution. 3. Diamond Offshore (DO) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying that if an upturn is forthcoming, Transocean should outperform given a "diminution" of concern toward its balance sheet and more new contract catalysts. 4. Cummins (CMI) downgraded to Neutral following dealer checks at Longbow with analyst Faheem Sabeiha citing a recent truck dealer survey that suggests initial 2018 sales growth is below current industry forecasts, partly due to driver shortage concerns. 5. Disney (DIS), AMC Networks (AMCX), and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
