Floor & Decor recent pullback a buying opportunity, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers views the recent pullback in shares of Floor & Decor (FND) as a buying opportunity. After hosting management meetings, the analyst continues to see Floor & Decor as a "rare growth story in retail in an expanding category." Contrary to what some investors have heard, the company categorically did not fall short of its internal plan in Q1, Horvers tells investors in a research note. Further, he does not believe CEO Tom Taylor is interested in the Lowe's (LOW) CEO spot. Horvers keeps an Overweight rating on Floor & Decor with a $59 price target.

Baird calls new Lowe's CEO 'big win' for shareholders
The naming of former Home Depot (HD) executive vice president of U.S. Stores, and J.C. Penney (JCP) CEO, Marvin Ellison as Lowe's (LOW) new CEO represents a best-case scenario and "big win" for Lowe's shareholders, Baird analyst Peter Benedict tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects the company to benefit greatly from Ellison's "extensive experience and understanding of the business. Benedict thinks Ellison is "uniquely qualified" to be the next leader of Lowe's and reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares with a $110 price target. The stock in early trading is up 38c to $87.77 while J.C. Penny is down 11c to $2.39.

J.C. Penney CEO departure increases near-term execution risk, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy is concerned around increased execution risk in the near-term at J.C. Penney (JCP) following this morning's announcement that Chairman and CEO, Marvin Ellison, is leaving to become President and CEO of Lowe's (LOW). The analyst believes this resignation coupled with inconsistent execution over the past year raises risk to the turnaround story. Murphy reiterates a Neutral rating and $3 price target on J.C. Penney's shares.

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.

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.

Tiffany could report 'solid' results similar to Macy's, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel said he is "positive" on Tiffany & Co (TIF) into the Q1 results on May 23. In a research note to investors, Nagel said he believes that a strengthening maco backdrop, including better spending by foreign shoppers, could drive "solid" results, similar to Macy's (M), which recently said increased tourist spending helped to drive better than forecast comps. Additionally, he believes that Tiffany's new senior leadership, was which spurred by an activist investor, could unlock "meaningfully" improved financial results and better leverage an underlying, powerful luxury brand. Nagel has an Outperform rating and $115 price target on Tiffany & Co shares.

In a research note to investors, Nagel said that a more aggressive strategic enhancement strategy is still underway and expected to yield "even better" results. He also noted that macro tailwinds are strengthening, including a weaker U.S. dollar and indications of building global consumer wealth, and that, while no longer cheap, Tiffany shares continue to underappreciate the potential for an improving sales and EPS trajectory at the specialty retailer.

Champine says her initial meeting with the company's new CEO Alessandro Bogliogo added to her confidence that Tiffany's efforts to "revitalize" revenues will be successful, adding that the downbeat market reaction to Q4 earnings was "overblown". The analyst forecasts Q1 comps to grow 4.2% - the highest quarterly growth rate since Q3 of 2015 - and also notes Tiffany's "attractive" valuation of 22-times her FY18 EPS forecast.

Ralph Lauren price target raised to $135 from $125 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti reiterated an Outperform rating and raised his price target on Ralph Lauren shares to $135 from $125 ahead of the company's analyst day on June 7, which he believes will overshadow next week's earnings report. In a research note to investors, Binetti expects the analyst day will lay the groundwork to return to positive year-over-year revenue growth by the fourth quarter of 2019 and guide to FY19 revenues to decline by low single digits. He also noted that Ralph Lauren has undergone "one of the most significant brand resets" in the softlines space by closing almost 25% of global full-price retail stores and reducing U.S. department store POS by 20%-25% and proactively reducing inventories, and sees a low probability that the brand will need another major reset lower.
