Macy's Q1 results 'as good as it gets,' says Citi

Citi analyst Paul Lejuez says Macy's Q1 results yesterday is "as good as it gets." Comparisons get tougher as the year progresses, Lejuez tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He notes that when stripping away the benefit from the shift in the Friends & Family promotion, the underlying comp trend in Q1 was very similar to Q4 on an absolute basis and worse than Q4 on a stacked basis. The analyst raised his price target for Macy's shares to $25 from $21 and keeps a Sell rating on the name.

Morgan Stanley sees 'uphill battle' for Macy's, downgrades to Underweight
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger downgraded Macy's to Underweight from Equal Weight citing its ongoing negative store-only comparable sales and continued decline in return on invested capital, or ROIC. Macy's is closing stores, but it is not doing so quickly enough, contends Greenberger. While those metrics leave her cautious, she also noted the retailer's shares have advanced over 60% since October, which she sees leaving the risk for investors skewed to the downside. Greenberger lowered her price target on Macy's shares to $25 from $27.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Macy's (M) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Kimberly Greenberger citing its ongoing negative store-only comparable sales and continued decline in return on invested capital, or ROIC. 2. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Laura Champine saying the April same-store-sales result of 0% was driven by promotions, and merchandise margin was once again "down significantly." The analyst also cut her price target for the shares to $28 from $40. 3. Tableau (DATA) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at MoffettNathanson. 4. Roche (RHHBY) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Tim Anderson saying its model shows the slowest 5Y EPS growth among his 10 covered names. 5. Baker Hughes (BHGE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners citing the strong run in Baker Hughes shares.

Jefferies ups Macy's target to $30, says read-through positive for retail peers
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik said he liked Macy's (M) "robust" revenue growth, clean inventories and controlled markdowns in the first quarter, though he also noted that Q2 comparable sales are expected to be down given the Friends and Family shift that aided Q1. Following the earnings report, Konik raised his price target on Macy's shares to $30 from $27, but he keeps a Hold rating on the stock, citing secular pressures impacting the company and the industry. The analyst, who thinks Macy's report has a positive read-through for retail more broadly, continues to prefer Kohl's (KSS), citing its off-mall positioning, differentiated assortment, and "omni-channel leadership."
