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 downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba downgraded Aaron's to Hold from Buy while keeping his $42 price target. Chukumba says the downgrade is based on valuation rather than fundamentals, forecasting the company's core business to improve sequentially and also see benefits from the U.S. tax changes. The analyst notes that after a recent run-up in the stock price, the current valuation is in line with his "relatively bullish fundamental outlook".
