Walmart trying to make returns easier without upsetting sellers, CNBC says

Walmart (WMT) is trying to make it easier for its online shoppers to return products to third-party sellers as the battle with Amazon (AMZN) intensifies, according to CNBC. Starting this fall, customers buying items from third parties on Walmart.com will be able to print shipping labels directly from the website and clearly see the return policies for individual items online, the publication added.

Hostess Brands downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on promotion headwinds
As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst William Chappell downgraded Hostess Brands to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $12 from $20 after a "weak" Q2 and lowered FY18 guidance. The analyst adds that the majority of the companies in his space have lowered 2018 guidance due to rising costs, but Hostess Brands' report also reduces his confidence in the company's forecasting ability and his expectations that growth can recover quickly. Chappell further cites the loss of promotional space and reduced inventory at Walmart (WMT) as a key headwind in the quarter.

Hostess Brands cut to Sector Perform at RBC Capital on lower sales visibility
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst David Palmer downgraded Hostess Brands (TWNK) to Sector Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target to $14 from $18 after its Q2 earnings miss and reduced FY18 guidance. The analyst points to the company's lower visibility around the second-half of 2018 and 2019 organic sales and profit growth because of reduced promotional activity at Walmart (WMT), rising costs, slower category growth, and delayed Cloverhill acquisition synergies.

Enterprise value of Alphabet's Waymo raised to $175B at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak increased his enterprise value estimate for Alphabet's Waymo unit from $75B for ride sharing only to $175B given his analyses for two other emerging business models, namely logistics and licensing. He believes Waymo remains on track to launch an autonomous ride hailing service in Phoenix this year and believes this business could be worth about $80B over the long-term. Partnerships with Walmart (WMT), DDR (DDR) and Peterbilt speak to Waymo's logistics focus, said Nowak, who sees the company potentially having a $90B logistics business. Additionally, he sees a roughly $7B licensing opportunity, pointing to the company's FCA (FCAU) relationship as a model of how companies could pay a license fee to Waymo for its autonomous technology. Given his view of Waymo being a key part of Alphabet's long-term value, Nowak raised his sum of the parts valuation to $1,550 from $1,400. He has an Overweight rating and $1,325 price target on Alphabet shares.

Synchrony upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS
UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom upgraded Synchrony Financial (SYF) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $33 from $32. Cost reductions and "significantly" greater expected share repurchases help offer the loss of the Walmart (WMT) portfolio next year, Wasserstrom tells investors in a research note. The analyst still sees an unclear outlook for Synchrony, but raised his estimates and says the valuation is now low enough for an upgrade to Neutral.

Edgewell Personal Care price target raised to $50 from $45 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Chappell raised his price target on Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) to $50 after its Q3 earnings beat, also raising his FY18 EPS view to $3.48 from $3.43 and FY19 to $3.82 from $3.76. The analyst cites lower than expected decline in the Wet Shave segment organic sales along with its private label growth and a contract win from Amazon (AMZN), even though the company's Skin/Sun Care trends worsened slightly. Chappell keeps his Hold rating on Edgewell, acknowledging its efforts to improve trends with new product launches but also noting that it may take some time to "get things back on track."

Etsy price target raised to $55 from $50 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Etsy (ETSY) to $55 and kept her Buy rating after its Q2 earnings beat and raised guidance. The analyst notes that while the stock price has already doubled year-to-date, its positive momentum is likely to continue after another update forecasting continued revenue growth. Champine also believes that her revenue growth forecasts may prove to be conservative, as Etsy's holiday promotional activity later this year is likely to increase seller count. The analyst contends that Etsy's seller fees at 5% are also an "excellent value" relative to eBay's (EBAY) 10% and Amazon's (AMZN) 15%.

Facebook added to Stifel Select List, Amazon removed
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt replaced Amazon (AMZN) with Facebook (FB) on the Stifel Select List, citing the strong year-to-date performance of Amazon shares, which he still likes and keeps a Buy rating upon. He believes Facebook expectations, and the shares, are appropriately set to allow for longer-term outperformance given the material reset that followed the company's "painful" Q2 update, Devitt tells investors. He maintains a Buy rating and $202 price target on Facebook.

Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), Chubb (CB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOGL), Apple (AAPL), Terex (TEX), Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF), Freeport McMoRan (FCX), FleetCor (FLT), Global Payments (GPN), Square (SQ), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Broadcom (AVGO), Nvidia (NVDA), Chegg (CHGG), DXC Technology (DXC), Medidata (MDSO), Pluralsight (PS), RealPage (RP), Shopify (SHOP) and T-Mobile (TMUS).
