Kroger tie up with Ocado seen as 'warning shot' in grocer battle, Bloomberg says

Kroger (KR) announced a tie-up with British online grocer Ocado earlier today as the grocer may be "battered by doubts that it can thrive as Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT) siphon off food customers," said Bloomberg." "It portends continued consolidation in the industry- "If the smaller guys can't figure out a why to have a similar level of service, it's only going to get worse."said Jennifer Bartashus, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

Kroger upgraded to Buy after Ocado partnership at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded Kroger to Buy from Neutral following the company's announcement of an exclusive U.S. partnership agreement with Ocado, stating that the opening of up to 20 automated warehouses could expand Kroger's trade areas significantly and help solve the issue of its "click-and-collect" having been more cannibalistic than at other grocers. The analyst, who also views Kroger's valuation as "compelling," raised his price target on the stock to $33 from $28.

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.

Macy's price target raised to $35 from $31 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Brian Tunick raised his price target on Macy's (M) to $35 after its Q1 results, saying the company's business improvements that stabilized low-single-digit comps were encouraging while margins also appear to be bottoming. Tunick also cites "favorable consumer spending" and progress on strategic initiatives driving sequential improvement in comps. The analyst keeps his Sector Perform rating however, saying the stock price will likely remain range-bound without a "meaningful" comp acceleration amid the persistent investor concerns with the impact of Amazon (AMZN) on retail and the slowing mall traffic.

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.

Target to benefit from strong digital sales, says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Patrick McKeever kept his Buy rating and $93 price target on Target Corp (TGT) ahead of its Q1 earnings next week. The analyst says the aggressive Street consensus for earnings is "doable" in spite of the negative impact from cold weather in the East, noting that the quarter will likely see more strong growth in digital sales driven by more "expedient" fulfillment and new orders. McKeever adds that despite the 12% run in the stock price year-to-date, its valuation is still 3.4 points below that of Walmart (WMT) on "overly pessimistic" investor sentiment. The analyst says Target remains his "Top Pick" in the space in 2018.

Walmart Q1 results all in all very positive, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict noted Walmart reported Q1 results which beat both his and Street estimates. The analyst said results were driven by higher sales and better gross margins, but noted comps were a touch light, citing seasonal trends in April. He said the results were positive overall with better sales, gross margins, and e-commerce acceleration outweighing the slight U.S. comp deceleration. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $95 price target on Walmart shares.

Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder noted that Walmart reported U.S. ecommerce growth accelerated sequentially in Q1 to 33% from 24%, which was important for investors disappointed in Q4. The company's gross margin percentage decline was also better than feared, noted Binder, who maintains a Buy rating on Walmart shares but trimmed his price target on the stock to $106 from $119.
