Macy's says 'committed' to returning to SSS growth in 2018

"We are committed to returning Macy's, Inc. to comparable sales growth in 2018 and will build on the momentum we created in the fourth quarter of 2017. Macy's, Inc. had a solid fourth quarter, including strong performance in January, and the full year exceeded our expectations for annual comparable sales and adjusted earnings per diluted share. We are encouraged to see a trend improvement in our brick & mortar business, and we had the 34th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth in our digital business," said Jeff Gennette, Macy's, Inc. chairman and CEO. "Consumer spending was strong in the fourth quarter, and we were ready with improved execution and great products across all categories. We were disciplined with our promotional cadence and maintained a good inventory position. We head into 2018 with an improved base business, healthy inventories, a focused and engaged organization and a clear path to return Macy's to growth." "In 2017, we tested and iterated a number of merchandising and strategic initiatives as part of our North Star Strategy. These initiatives contributed to our fourth quarter performance, and in 2018 we are ready to scale as well as test additional revenue-driving initiatives. We are also encouraged by customer response to our new Star Rewards loyalty program," said Gennette. "On the path to growth in 2018, we will continue to improve our execution, strengthen our product offerings and make the necessary investments to be competitive with today's demanding consumer."

Kohl's, Macy's Q4 same-store sales estimates raised at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger said that overall retail traffic appeared solid following Christmas, adding that store checks and third party data points suggest better performance at Kohl's (KSS) and Macy's (M) than she originally anticipated. Greenberger raised her Q4 Kohl's comparable sales estimate to down 1% from down 3% and increased her comp sales estimate for Macy's to down 2% from down 2.5%. However, she maintains an Underweight rating on Kohl's shares and an Equal Weight rating on Macy's.

Macy's price target raised to $38 from $35 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Wayne Hood raised his price target on Macy's to $38 and kept his Outperform rating after the company's Nov-Dec comps completed the first positive SSS Q4 since 2014. Hood notes "encouraging" improvement in brick-and-mortar comps as well as double digit growth in digital platforms, forecasting further upside from " improving consumer spending setup from tax reform and falling unemployment that could be far reaching". The analyst raises his FY17 EPS forecast to $3.63 from $3.53 and FY18 forecast to $3.18 from $2.63, reflecting a lower effective tax rate of about 25%.

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.
