Advance Auto Parts price target raised to $160 from $130 at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on Advance Auto Parts to $160 from $130. The analyst believes optimizing its distribution network is a significant portion of the $750M in gross savings it expects to achieve over the next three years. He believes it will pave the way to unlock more substantial savings in 2019 and beyond. Lasser reiterated his Buy rating on Advance Auto Parts shares.

O'Reilly can take AutoZone share and withstand Amazon threat, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Elizabeth Suzuki is most positive on O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) in her broader research note on the auto parts retail industry, saying the anticipated repair arc in the U.S. vehicle population favors companies with more exposure to "do it for me" like O'Reilly, Advance Auto Parts (AAP), and Genuine Parts (GPC) rather than "do it yourself" like AutoZone (AZO). The analyst sees Advance Auto Parts pricing in a more optimistic outlook while losing market share and underperforming on margins, rating the company at Underperform with a price target of $103. Suzuki states that Genuine Parts is also constrained by pricing headwinds, rating the company at Neutral with a $105 price target. The analyst likes O'Reilly's expected pace of new store growth, above-average operating margins, and its deepest relative moat through its developed distribution network against a potential threat of entry into the retail auto parts space by Amazon (AMZN), rating the company at Buy with a price target of $330.

Advance Auto Parts price target raised to $155 from $135 at Argus
Argus analyst Christopher Graja raised his price target on Advance Auto Parts to $155 and also raised his FY19 EPS target to $7.90 from $7.50, saying he is now modeling an 80bps improvement in operating margins thanks to the company's efforts to reduce costs, improve inventory management, and boost its customer service. Graja also points to higher free cash flows generated in Q1 as the company's chairman Jeffrey Smith and CEO Tom Greco turn Advance Auto Parts into a more efficiently run firm. The analyst notes that the signs of operating improvement have also led him to increase his target enterprise value to EBIT valuation multiple to 15-times from 14-times.

Advance Auto Parts price target raised to $154 from $133 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli raised his price target on Advance Auto Parts to $154 and kept his Outperform rating. The analyst says his deep dive analysis indicates that the company has "conservatively 300-450 bps of EBIT margin expansion potential", but needs to improve its sales productivity to fully unlock its earnings power, given that its sales per store metrics have been "stagnant since 2013".
