Rapid erosion in physical stores may be abating, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc's research consumer team says that while online remains the key avenue for growth, the rapid erosion in physical store sales may be abating. The analyst noted that strong store checks reinforce their thesis that apparel is back, with the strongest traffic at Urban Outfitters (URBN) and lululemon (LULU). Meanwhile, Wal-Mart (WMT) was able to eschew wrist bands and had solid inventory of doorbusters, while Gap (GPS) saw strong traffic at Old Navy, they contend. Additionally, KeyBanc's team says its channel checks suggest Best Buy (BBY) continues to gain share and drove healthy traffic, while Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) offered slightly more aggressive, but still uninspiring, undifferentiated promotions. Moreover, they believe Conn's (CONN) maintains momentum with its credit offering, credit improvement story, and the recovery in the Hurricane Harvey impacted markets. Checks also revealed solid Beauty positioning, with Ulta Beauty (ULTA) as a winner with strong holiday positioning and good traffic on Thursday/Friday, the analysts added.

Ulta Beauty margin decline largely hurricane related, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $300 price target on Ulta Beauty following Q3 earnings beat. Chukumba says the results were particularly impressive in light of the negative impact from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, adding that the gross margin decline was largely related to those events. The analyst also notes the 63% rise in e-commerce sales, adding some 370bps to the overall 10.3% rise in comps which accelerated 90bps from Q2 despite the inclement weather.

Ulta Beauty earnings report positive for Estee Lauder, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink says Ulta Beauty's (ULTA) Q3 earnings report last night had positive read-throughs for Estee Lauder (EL), as MAC and Clinique were cited as major contributors to the company's 10.3% reported comp. The reception to MAC in stores has been strong and Ulta hinted at further expansion in 2018, Wissink tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Estee Lauder with a $140 price target.

Outperform
Ulta Beauty price target lowered to $246 from $336 at Cowen
Cowen analyst Oliver Chen lowered his price target on Ulta Beauty to $246 from $336 but he believes the company's business model remains intact. He believes the stock will be weaker over the next few days as the Street digests its lowered guidance, but he is maintaining his Outperform rating given his conviction that makeup softness is temporary and treatable, its customer loyalty and store format is sustainable, and its vendor relationships remain a competitive moat.
