Amazon should increase focus on autonomous driving, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak makes the case that autonomous driving technology should be where Amazon (AMZN) invests next, stating that Alphabet's (GOOGL) Waymo partnering with Walmart (WMT) and shopping center owner DDR (DDR) to drive shoppers to stores is "just the beginning." He sees the potential for a deeper integration between Google Shopping and Waymo autonomous cars to deliver retailers' in-store or warehouse inventory to consumers, and sees Amazon needing a defense against a stronger potential long-term Waymo retail offering. Nowak also notes that Amazon is already investing in its own delivery network and contends that investing in an autonomous offering is just an extension of this strategy in many ways. Additionally, the analyst sees a small relative upfront investment, the potential for large shipping savings and ways to leverage the value of miles driven. Nowak maintains an Overweight rating and $2,500 price target on Amazon shares.

Walmart Q3 comps trending above consens, says at Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Scott Bender's checks indicate sales trends remain strong for Walmart's Q3-to-date and appear to be trending above consensus expectations with fairly steady trends in grocery despite tough comps. The analyst is modeling Q3 US comp store sales of up 3.5%-4%, versus consensus of up 2.8%.

Hostess Brands initiated with a Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Alexis Borden started Hostess Brands (TWNK) with a Neutral rating and $13 price target. The analyst sees a "host of questions" over Hostess' near-to-medium term outlook due to the recent revenue headwinds from lost Walmart (WMT) display space, heightened cost inflation pressures and continued "sluggish" Sweet Baked Goods category growth. As such, Borden is cautious on the shares near-term.

Walmart, Kroger to see margin pain from 'war of attrition,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman said food retail disruption is accelerating as both grocers and consumers head online and he projects that industry EBIT margins, which are "already slim at 3%," could shrink by nearly a third by 2023. He is incrementally more cautious on Kroger (KR) and has "meaningfully" lowered his EBIT and EPS forecasts, stating that while the company and Walmart (WMT) can both take share, "margin pain" is likely in the process of their "war of attrition" in grocery with Amazon (AMZN), each other and a number of additional competitors. Consensus estimates expect stable margins at Kroger and Walmart, which appears challenging to Gutman, he tells investors. The analyst keeps Equal Weight ratings on both traditional retailers and an Overweight rating on Amazon, arguing that it should be able to leverage Prime and its fast-growing high-margin businesses to invest more heavily while still driving higher profitability.
