Wal-Mart shares likely to rise if FY19 goal reiterated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that Wal-Mart (WMT) shares have underperformed ahead of the company's investor day, which is the first time this has been the case in 4 years. He attributes the underperformance to fears about the achievability of Wal-Mart's 5% EPS growth target in FY19 and Target's (TGT) recent wage announcement. Gutman, who sees only a 25% chance Wal-Mart backs away from this goal, thinks that if the 5% target is maintained, shares will "likely grind higher, perhaps by1%-2%." He keeps an Equal Weight rating and $84 price target on Wal-Mart shares.

Sally Beauty cut to sell at Morgan Stanley as competition 'catches up'
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman downgraded Sally Beauty to Underweight, the firm's equivalent to a sell rating, from Equal Weight. Its retail segment is facing tougher competition while its professional segment is decelerating, he stated. While the stock is down 15% since the company's Q3 report, that does not fully reflect the headwinds Sally Beauty faces amid competitive pressures from Wal-Mart (WMT) Target (TGT), Ulta (ULTA) and drugstores catch up, Gutman tells investors. He lowered his price target on Sally Beauty shares to $15 from $22.

Neutral
Target modernization efforts weighing on profits, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict maintains a Neutral rating and $55 price target on Target shares following this morning's Q3 results. The retailer's Q4 outlook, with earnings down 20% year-over-year at the midpoint, "reinforced the cost of driving sales in a highly competitive backdrop," Benedict tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst believes Target's modernization efforts are weighing on profits and he sees low visibility into a margin inflection.
