Kohl's price target raised to $63 from $57 at MKM Partners

MKM Partners analyst Patrick McKeever raised his price target on Kohl's to $63 ahead of Q4 earnings, forecasting a 6% SSS increase for the quarter after the company's ICR presentation disclosed 6.9% rise in the November-December period. The analyst also anticipates some modest gross margin improvement thanks to better sales in higher-margin private label along with low-single-digit SSS outlook for the first half due to easy comparisons. McKeever keeps his Neutral rating on Kohl's, citing some lingering concerns about sustainability due to "less disposable income going to apparel and online pure-plays" competition.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dick's Sporting (DKS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Mike Baker saying he believes industry trends are bottoming and notes that Dick's inventory levels are coming back into balance with demand, which should lessen the impact on gross margins. 2. eBay (EBAY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Youssef Squali citing an upbeat fourth quarter holiday sales boosting revenues and gross merchandise volume, prospects for higher growth in 2018 on platform improvements and marketing investment, lowers corporate tax rates, and lower repatriation tax rates that will bring "most of $8.7B" in overseas cash to be used in buybacks or M&A. 3. Costco (COST) upgraded to Buy from Accumulate at Gordon Haskett with analyst Chuck Grom citing his meeting with management. 4. Kohl's (KSS) was upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital. 5. Humana (HUM) and Anthem (ANTM) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Kohl's price target raised to $70 from $61 at Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager raised his price target on Kohl's to $70 from $61 as he continues to like the 12-month value case. The analyst noted the stock's big run, but said free cash flow is strong, valuation is not stretched when considering its earnings power, and there is momentum in the business entering 2018. Altschwager reiterated his Outperform rating on Kohl's shares.

Jefferies sees Kohl's rallying another 50%, ups target to $100
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik raised his price target for Kohl's (KSS) to $100 from $66 and says the stock could rise at least another 50%. The shares closed yesterday up 26c to $64.85. The retailer is "addressing the digital revolution head on" and surpassing peers with more emphasis on proprietary brands, partnering with Amazon.com (AMZN) and rightsizing square footage, Konik tells investors in a research note. He expects Kohl's sales growth to accelerate and margins to rise, and views current consensus estimates as "way too low." The company's off-mall real estate is an additional positive, as is the closing of peer stores, Konik adds. He remains a buyer of the stock.

Bon-Ton Stores bankruptcy benefits Kohl's, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik notes that Bon-Ton Stores filed bankruptcy protection and provided the locations of the about 50 units slated for closure. The analyst now estimates near-term closures from Macy's (M), Sears (SHLD), Kmart, and Bon-Ton (BONT) should add about 18c to Kohl's (KSS) EPS and a 1.5% comp lift. Moreover, Konik believes the materialization of Bon-Ton's closures could be a "cherry on top" to accelerating fundamentals at Kohl's this year. He reiterates a Buy rating and $100 price target on Kohl's shares.
