Pier 1 Imports price target lowered to $3 at Loop Capital following Analyst Day

Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba lowered his price target on Pier 1 to $3 from $4 and kept his Hold rating. The analyst contends that the management presented a "comprehensive" turnaround strategy but prefers to see more concrete signs of progress before turning more constructive on the stock. Chukumba still sees a number of risks associated with the stock such as poor consumer response to Pier 1's merchandise, heightened competition from online furnishing retailers, and further margin pressure from discounting.

Pier 1 Imports Q3 performance 'roundly disappointing', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $4 price target on Pier 1 Imports (PIR) after a "roundly disappointing" Q3 earnings report that saw comps fall, gross margins contract, and Q4 outlook come well short of expectations. Chukumba says he is "increasingly worried about the relevance" of the company amid rising online competition, particularly as Amazon (AMZN) becomes "more serious about the category". With the stock down over 25% in the pre-market, the analyst says a Hold rating remains appropriate.

E-Commerce continues to take channel share, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Seth Basham notes that e-Commerce continues to take channel share from bricks and mortar, accounting for an estimated 20% of holiday sales. While retailers such as Williams-Sonoma (WSM), Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR) continue to adapt, he believes they not only continue to lose share to online retailers including Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wayfair (W), but also face increasing costs of serving omnichannel shoppers. Mattress retail remains mixed, with Mattress Firm's recent improving sales trends and financing an incremental negative for Tempur Sealy (TPX).
