Ascena Retail downgraded to Sell with $3 target at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez downgraded Ascena Retail to Sell from Neutral saying the company has too many concepts with too many stores in a world increasingly moving to e-commerce. Ascena is behind the curve on omnichannel investment, which is likely to be a continued drag on margins, Lejuez tells investors in a research note post the company's Q2 results. He cut his price target for the shares to $3 from $5.50.

FBR lowers Specialty Retail price targets ahead of Q2 reports
FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson expects Specialty Retail earnings in Q2 to be overall in-line with consensus estimates, with a lighter top line and gross margin given the need to promote to drive traffic. The analyst views American Eagle (AEO) and L Brands (LB) as winners in the quarter. She upgraded American Eagle this morning to Buy. Anderson also lowered her price target for Neutral-rated Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) to $11 from $13, for Neutral-rated Ascena Retail (ASNA) to $3 from $5, for Neutral-rated Foot Locker (FL) to $58 from $66, for Neutral-rated Francesca's to $10 from $13, for Neutral-rated Gap (GPS) to $25 from $28 and for Neutral-rated Urban Outfitters (URBN) to $16 from $24.

Pier 1 Imports Q3 performance 'roundly disappointing', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $4 price target on Pier 1 Imports (PIR) after a "roundly disappointing" Q3 earnings report that saw comps fall, gross margins contract, and Q4 outlook come well short of expectations. Chukumba says he is "increasingly worried about the relevance" of the company amid rising online competition, particularly as Amazon (AMZN) becomes "more serious about the category". With the stock down over 25% in the pre-market, the analyst says a Hold rating remains appropriate.

E-Commerce continues to take channel share, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Seth Basham notes that e-Commerce continues to take channel share from bricks and mortar, accounting for an estimated 20% of holiday sales. While retailers such as Williams-Sonoma (WSM), Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR) continue to adapt, he believes they not only continue to lose share to online retailers including Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wayfair (W), but also face increasing costs of serving omnichannel shoppers. Mattress retail remains mixed, with Mattress Firm's recent improving sales trends and financing an incremental negative for Tempur Sealy (TPX).
