Masco price target raised to $50 from $46 at Argus

Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Masco (MAS) to $50 ahead of its Q1 earnings, saying the company has beaten consensus in eight of the last 12 quarters. Graja also cites his continued optimism about the positive impact of recovery in the U.S. housing market as well as remodeling activity driving sales growth and profitability amid strong consumer demand for renovation brands like "Delta faucets, Hansgrohe faucets (internationally), Behr Paints, Milgard windows and KraftMaid cabinets". Graja further notes an increase in big ticket item spending at Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW), where customers are taking advantage of the growing professional services business. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Masco, further noting that its valuation of 12-times trailing EBITDA is "in line or slightly below" the peer average.

Masco downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut downgraded Masco to Neutral with an unchanged price target of $48. The company's turnaround story and benefit from corporate tax reform has largely been reflected by the stock's outperformance in 2017, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He believes further margin improvement in Cabinets and Windows is already reflected by the Street's estimates.

Masco weakness a buying opportunity, says Baird
Baird analyst Timothy Wojs recommended investors buy Masco shares on the recent weakness. The analyst noted its solid Q4 results were underpinned by its resilient portfolio, strong free cash flow, and further capital deployment. Wojs reiterated his Outperform rating and $50 price target on Masco shares and elevated the stock to a Fresh Pick as the risk/reward is compelling.

Stifel lowers Q1 same-store sales estimates for Lowe's, Home Depot
Stifel analyst John Baugh lowered his Q1 same-store sales growth estimates for Home Depot (HD) to 6.0% from 6.5% and for Lowe's (LOW) to 4.0% from 4.7%, citing "a number of conspiring factors," including sluggish consumer spending data and bad weather. While acknowledging the opportunity for better results in April, Baugh said he would rather be somewhat conservative at this point, noting that consensus comp growth estimates are 5.9% for Home Depot and 4.4% for Lowe's. He maintains Buy ratings on both stocks.

If history holds, Lowe's could outperform after CEO change, says Morgan Stanley
Following the announcement of a CEO transition at Lowe's (LOW), Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman looked at recent management changes at two large-cap Hardline retailers - Best Buy (BBY) and Advance Auto Parts (AAP) - as case studies searching for signs of what to expect at the home improvement retailer. While acknowledging that each situation is unique, Gutman also pointed out what he sees as "a few interesting similarities." The analyst noted that Best Buy had a tough first three months following the installment of Hubert Joly, but then the stock increased 200% in the following nine months, leaving the stock up 100% in the first 12 months of Joly's tenure. Advance Auto also initially dipped in the month following the onboarding of CEO Tom Greco, but then it rose 21% in the next seven months, noted Gutman. The analyst, who also noted that Lowe's multiple on 2019 EPS estimates is among the lowest compared to nearly all large cap retailers, keeps his Overweight rating on the shares.

Lowe's shares remain cheap, says Jefferies
Lowe's shares are still cheap as they price in much of the interest rate cycle risk and little for potential operational improvement, Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder tells investors in a research note. Yesterday's news of Robert Niblock's retirement could be the beginning of broader changes within the company's leadership team, the analyst adds. He's encouraged by the swift changes the new board is undertaking and keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $129 price target.
