Costco strong trends show value proposition winning with customers, says Stifel

Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Costco's total and U.S. core March comps of 5.8% and 6.7% were both above consensus and accelerated on a two-year basis. He thinks the March performance, which is a continuation of recent strong trends, indicates the company's value proposition is winning with consumers, he tells investors. Astrachan keeps a Buy rating and $200 price target on Costco.

Costco comps to decelerate in March, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict keeps his Outperform rating and $215 price target on Costco but warns that comps for the month of March may decelerate to 6.5%-7.5% from 10.8% on tougher cycle comparison and a less favorable calendar shift. Based on the shift of Easter timing, the analyst sees the core comps that excluded gas and FX to decelerate to 5%-6% from 7.2% in February. Despite the calendar "noise" of March comps, Benedict maintains a positive view on Costco as a "best in class" stock.

Buy
Costco price target raised to $200 from $188 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Costco (COST) to $200 citing the company's financial strength and the position to "deliver extreme values", along with its "excellent business plan execution", strong traffic, and membership renewals. Graja also says that there are many areas of Costco that would be difficult for Amazon (AMZN) or anyone else to match on price and quality, adding that his research suggests that Costco generally has lower prices. Th analyst keeps his Buy rating on Costco, adding that the "favorable economics of the new credit card program" have translated into even lower prices rather than higher short-term earnings.

UPGRADE

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.
