Defensive option play opened in Ross Stores ahead of earnings

Defensive option play opened in Ross Stores ahead of earnings. The stock up 18c to $92.50 and 7K Sep 100 calls sold at 85c to buy 7K Sep 90 - 92.5 call spreads for $1.15.

Neutral
TJX initiated with a Neutral at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Jen Redding initiated TJX Companies (TJX) with a Neutral rating and $100 price target, telling investors that it should be a "solid" performer over the long-term, and views TJX as "best-in-class" within the off-price sector. Redding contended that while bright U.S. prospects fuel discretionary spending stateside and TJX is viewed as "primed to capitalize," she says she has less visibility into international prospects for now and favor investments with an exclusive U.S. focus. This morning, Redding also initiated Ross Stores (ROST) with a Neutral and Burlington Stores (BURL) with an Outperform.

Ross Stores price target raised to $95 from $88 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Ross Stores to $95 from $88 and reiterated a Buy rating following checks that indicate strong softlines trends and continued share gains for off-price retailers in Q2. In a research note to investors, Champine notes that she was originally "dubious" about the retailer's claims that weather impacted Q1 sales, but checks with California district managers at a wide variety of retailers substantiated the company's claim that wet weather "dampened the West Coast consumer's enthusiasm for shopping" in early Spring. She contends that Ross's off-price model is defensible and will continue to take market share from department stores and some full-price specialty retailers, and thinks a Buy rating still makes sense given the resilience of Ross's business model even as shares have recovered +6% year-to-date vs. the S&P 500 Index's +2%.

Kernan reiterated his Outperform rating on Ross Stores shares.

Deutsche Bank says 'sticking with' off-price, athletic brands in apparel space
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell previewed earnings for apparel companies, telling investors in a research note that he is "sticking with" off-price, the brands and athletic brands over specialty retailers and department stores. Trussell expects beats from Burlington Stores (BURL), Ross Stores (ROST), TJX (TJX), PVH (PVH), Foot Locker (FL) and Lululemon (LULU), along with American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Buckle (BKE) as the outliers in the specialty group and Kohl's (KSS), and says he is "a bit more cautious" for the frest of his apparel coverage given stretched valuations. Trussell raised his price target for Burlington Stores to $175 from $167, to $96 from $91 for Ross and to $105 from $100 fro TJX, but cut his price target to $171 from $176 for PVH.
