Kohl's Q1 may see 'significant slowdown' from Q4 on weather, says MKM Partners

MKM Partners analyst Patrick McKeever keeps his Neutral rating and $67 price target on Kohl's ahead of its Q1 earnings next week, saying the quarter is facing a risk of a slowdown from Q4 activity because of the wintery weather in the East. The analyst adds that he sees SSS rising 3% in Q1, but also expects them to decelerate in the coming quarters as comparisons become "progressively more difficult", while the partnership between Kohl's and Amazon (AMZN) remains limited.

Amazon gaining apparel market share in U.S., says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said his analysis shows that Amazon (AMZN) gained 1.5% of U.S. apparel market share in 2017, largely at the expense of department stores. He estimates Amazon is the second largest U.S. apparel retailer, trailing only Walmart (WMT), and expects the e-commerce giant to take the number one spot in terms of U.S. apparel market share in 2018. Cumulatively, Nowak estimates Sears (SHLD), Macy's (M) and J.C. Penney (JCP) lost 0.8% share in 2017, with shareholdings remaining roughly flat for Target (TGT) and Kohl's (KSS). He maintains an Overweight rating and $1,550 price target on Amazon shares.

As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti downgraded Kohl's to Neutral from Outperform and lowered his price target to $64 from $72 on the company's shares. Binetti sees Q1 same store sales risk due to cold weather damaging industry traffic and Kohl's being more weather sensitive than its peers, and slightly lowered his Q1 EPS estimate on the stock. He concluded that the current risk/reward in the stock leaves him Neutral.

Wag not just another 'pet' project for Amazon, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Seth Sigman says the combination of Amazon's (AMZN) pricing and faster delivery makes its new private brand dog food line "Wag" more competitive versus traditional retailers such as Tractor Supply (TSCO). Additionally, the analyst believes the ingredients stack up well and prices more competitive versus other established premium brands, supporting his cautious view of Smucker (SJM) and adding risk to General Mills (GIS), as both have acquired premium pet food companies recently.

Sears-Amazon tire partnership not a negative for Monro, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Bret Jordan kept his Hold rating and $60 price target on Monro (MNRO) after its stock price fell over 7.5% today to $52.70, saying Sears (SHLD) partnership with Amazon (AMZN) on tire installation and services is a not "transformational negative". Jordan notes that the greater transparency and price matching is not new, while Monro is "already an installer for other online sellers such as Tirerack and ATD's tirebuyer.com". The analyst adds that the agreement is not exclusive, leaving the "door open" for Monro to enter into a similar deal.

Walmart deal for Flipkart more dilutive than anticipated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that news reports heading up to Walmart's (WMT) deal for a majority stake in Flipkart had predicted a $12B transaction for about 60% of a business generating operating losses in the $1B range. However, the higher than expected magnitude of losses Walmart would absorb in India significantly raises the stakes on the trajectory of its U.S. business and clouds the near-term path, he said. He also questions why the company is investing outside the U.S. market, stating that it could have instead accelerated its third-party marketplace infrastructure, stepped up its partnership with Google Home (GOOG) to better compete with Amazon's (AMZN) Alexa, or intensified domestic investments in price and fulfillment. However, he does add that the deal prevents Amazon, for now, from building an "insurmountable" advantage in the important Indian market. Gutman lowered his price target on Walmart to $93 from $99 after the deal was more dilutive than anticipated and keeps an Equal Weight rating on the shares.
