After Party City deal, Credit Suisse finds Michaels selling on Amazon too

As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Seth Sigman reported that he has found Michael's (MIK) selling products on Amazon's (AMZN) marketplace via the company's "Darice" wholesale brand. This finding came after Party City (PRTY) disclosed earlier this morning that it would starting selling on the Amazon marketplace. Sigman thinks an Amazon partnership can help drive incremental growth for Michael's in the near-term and thinks the mix may skew to higher price points than the company's typical mix. He keeps an Outperform rating on Michael's share, which are up 4% to $21.02 in late morning trading.

Michaels added to Analyst Focus List at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers added Michaels to his firm's Analyst Focus List as a value idea. The stock's selloff since the Q1 report creates a "highly attractive entry point considering the historic low valuation," Horvers tells investors in a research note. The analyst views a "substantial buyback" as the most likely outcome for the company's cash position post two quarters of inactivity. After hosting meetings with management Horvers keeps an Overweight rating on Michaels with a $25 price target.

Michaels 'deserves to be cheap,' says Loop Capital
Following this morning's Q1 results, Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine believes Michaels "deserves to be cheap." The analyst lowered her price target for the shares to $19 from $20 and keeps a Hold rating on the name. Champine says that though Michaels expects e-commerce to remain at a single-digit percentage of its revenues, she's beginning to believe the industry's penetration online is higher and growing more rapidly, pressuring the company's comp. She views the outlook for Q2 as disappointing.

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.

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%.

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."

BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle upgraded Party City to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $20 from $17 citing expectations for better same-store sales growth in 2019, combined with consistent operating margin expansion.
