Aaron's working to leverage Amazon traffic and mindshare, says Northcoast

Northcoast analyst Nick Mitchell said channel work indicates Aaron's (AAN) Progressive segment is working diligently to put together a scalable go-to-market strategy that would allow it to leverage Amazon's (AMZN) traffic and mindshare. The analyst believes Progressive's market leading position will translate into significant growth over the next 5 to 10 years and thinks Amazon could conservatively represent a $240M to $721M inventory outsourcing opportunity, or operating income in the range of $45M to $218M. Mitchell views this as another good reason to own the stock at these levels and reiterates his Buy rating and $52.50 price target on Aaron's.

Aaron's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded Aaron's (AAN) to Buy with an unchanged price target of $42. Progressive's "strong" growth is likely to continue as the company benefits from Rent-A-Center's (RCII) "ongoing travails," Chukumba tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes the SEI acquisition will drive improved results in the Aaron's Business division and that the Q3 miss is not as bad as it looks.

Aaron's upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Budd Bugatch upgraded Rent-A-Center two notches to Strong Buy from Market Perform and established a $14 price target following the Q3 report. The analsyt expects the aftermath of recent hurricaines to boost revenues for several quarters and the "formal process" to review startegic alternatives provides a buffer to the downside, and increases the likelihood of a higher takeout price.

Additionally, the company's Progressive segment is poised to delver outsized growwth and the balance sheet remains strong, the analyst wrote in a report to investors.

VMware upgraded to Outperform at BMO Capital on faster computing growth
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Keith Bachman upgraded VMware (VMW) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target to $142 from $136. Bachman says the company is benefiting from improved on-premise spending trends, increasing his projections for the overall FY19 computing spend to grow 3% versus prior forecast of 1-2% decline. The analyst also says that management is being conservative in suggesting that the partnership with AWS (AMZN) would not generate returns for the next 2 years after attending AWS re:Invent this week.

Wells not seeing Amazon talks as good news for Mylan, others
CNBC last night reported that Amazon.com (AMZN) is in exploratory talks with Mylan (MYL) and Novartis' Sandoz (NVS) regarding a potential entry into the pharmacy space. While the market might consider this good news for Mylan and other generics as a sign of potential preferred supplier agreements, Wells Fargo analyst David Maris says he's more cautious. Amazon entering the pharmacy market could be a negative headwind for retail generics and potentially branded over-the-counter products, Maris argues. He believes Amazon would source at competitive prices and that "increased price transparency may cause traditional retailers to push harder for price concessions."

Outperform
Amazon price target raised to $1,525 from $1,430 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ken Sena raised his price target for Amazon.com (AMZN) to $1,525 to reflect increased outer-year estimates for Web Services as well as a higher sum-of-the-parts valuation. The stock closed yesterday up $15.48 to $1,176.75. The analyst highlights the "very successful" five-day Amazon Wed Services conference in Las Vegas, "record-breaking" early holiday sales data, and another healthcare industry development with CNBC reporting the company is in talks with generic manufacturers Mylan (MYL) and Novartis (NVS). Sena sees an increasing likelihood that Amazon "ultimately becomes a disruptor" in healthcare, with generics representing a potential point of entry. The Wells Fargo Healthcare team sees generics as a "simple entry point" in pharma as it involves many players with ready supply and a price competitive market, Sena tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Amazon.

Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised his price target for Amazon.com to $1,330 after the company's Web Services announced dozens of new services focused on databases, Internet-of-Things and serverless functionality. AWS is now well positioned to be the platform company for IoT and democratizing artificial intelligence, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Amazon's pace of innovation is strong and keeps an Outperform rating on the name.
