Walmart price target raised to $110 from $95 at Baird

Baird analyst Peter Benedict raised his price target on Walmart to $110 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q2 earnings beat driven by stronger sales and improved expense leverage. The analyst adds that the company delivered its best comp in over a decade at 4.5%, with "broad based strength" across all segments and channels. Benedict further cites momentum from ongoing in-store and online initiatives, on top of favorable weather and positive consumer backdrop, in helping Walmart become a "rare growth staple".

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.

Overweight
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.

Neutral
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.
