Urban Outfitters upgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on expected sales rebound
As reported earlier, MKM Partners analyst Roxanne Meyer upgraded Urban Outfitters to Neutral from Sell and raised her price target to $41 from $20. The analyst cites her expectations of a sales and margin recovery in the second half, with Q4 commentary suggesting improving trends after the company's worse than expected performance in 2017. Meyer adds that contrary to her prior view, the improvements at Anthropologie were driven by better assortment and reduced promotional activity rather than easy comps, further noting that Q2 gross margin recovery will become more apparent on "easier markdown compares". The analyst also attributes her new neutral stance to "uncertainty around the success of increased private label at Anthropologie".

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Urban Outfitters (URBN) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at MKM Partners with analyst Roxanne Meyer citing her expectations of a sales and margin recovery in the second half, with fourth quarter commentary suggesting improving trends after the company's worse than expected performance in 2017. 2. AMD (AMD) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna with analyst Christopher Rolland saying Ethereum prices have doubled in the last month, driving a "modest" reacceleration in GPU purchases, while price hikes have "destroyed value proposition" of a rival Ethereum ASIC. 3. TripAdvisor (TRIP) upgraded two notches to Outperform from Underperform at Macquarie with analyst Matthew Brooks saying TripAdvisor raised their EBITDA forecast to up from flat, and now believes it could grow above 20% in 2018, with a margin rise for the first time since 2011. 4. KKR (KKR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying he believes the company's C-Corp conversion will increase relevance of the sector and raise the absolute upside for KKR. 5. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the current valuation does not adequately "reflect prospects for accelerating same-store sales and earnings growth as the company continues its multiyear recovery."

Lululemon price target raised to $114 from $95 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Pamela Quintilliano raised her price target on Lululemon (LULU) to $114 and kept her Buy rating as part of her broader research note on Specialty Retail sector. The analyst notes that the adverse weather factors are being overlooked by investors in this market-outperforming space as macro trends appear to be benefiting the consumer. For Lululemon, Quintilliano notes that its inventory to sales ratio at the end of Q4 was among the lowest in the peer group, and that despite the stock's valuation premium of 31.7-times forward PE vs. 25-times historic average, she expects the momentum in the sales of the company's products to benefit its shares. The analyst also favors Buy-rated Chico's FAS (CHS) on its cost-cutting initiatives and operating efficiencies, as well as Urban Outfitters (URBN) based on its "impressive intra-quarter trends" and well controlled promotions. Quintilliano raises her price target on the latter to $47 from $42.
