Morgan Stanley sees near-term pressure, long-term gain for Penney if Sears folds

Amid recent headlines regarding Sears (SHLD) adding a restructuring expert and reportedly pursuing a bankruptcy filing, Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger noted that she believes J.C. Penney (JCP) had the highest store overlap with Sears, K-Mart, and Sears Specialty Stores within both a quarter mile and half mile radius. If Sears closes additional stores or engages in liquidation sales, retailers in the close trade areas could experience some short-term pressure, said Greenberger, who added that Sears has already been closing stores for years. In the medium to long-term, she expects J.C. Penney and other retailers in the respective trade areas to potentially benefit from these closures. Greenberger, who views Penney's near-term debt maturities as "manageable," keeps an Equal Weight rating and $1.50 price target on the shares.

J.C. Penney price target lowered to 50c from $2 at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez said that J.C. Penney " finds itself in a very difficult position" following its Q2 report given that they lack a CEO and head merchant and are struggling at a time when peers are seeing improvement in their business. While he does not see near-term liquidity issues, Lejuez said there is not that much equity value given the company's high debt load. He lowered his price target on J.C. Penney shares to 50c from $2 and keeps a Sell rating on the stock.

Piper Jaffray keeps Neutral on J.C. Penney after CEO announcement
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy maintains a Neutral rating on J.C. Penney with a $1.50 price target after Jill Soltau was named the company's new CEO. Soltau has direct insights on Penny's core consumer given the overlap of the consumer base in her prior roles, Murphy tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, remains sidelined with respect to the shares given her longer-term view on department store retailing and her belief that inventory at Penny "is still in process of being right-sized."

Bon-Ton Stores bankruptcy benefits Kohl's, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik notes that Bon-Ton Stores filed bankruptcy protection and provided the locations of the about 50 units slated for closure. The analyst now estimates near-term closures from Macy's (M), Sears (SHLD), Kmart, and Bon-Ton (BONT) should add about 18c to Kohl's (KSS) EPS and a 1.5% comp lift. Moreover, Konik believes the materialization of Bon-Ton's closures could be a "cherry on top" to accelerating fundamentals at Kohl's this year. He reiterates a Buy rating and $100 price target on Kohl's shares.

Amazon gaining apparel market share in U.S., says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said his analysis shows that Amazon (AMZN) gained 1.5% of U.S. apparel market share in 2017, largely at the expense of department stores. He estimates Amazon is the second largest U.S. apparel retailer, trailing only Walmart (WMT), and expects the e-commerce giant to take the number one spot in terms of U.S. apparel market share in 2018. Cumulatively, Nowak estimates Sears (SHLD), Macy's (M) and J.C. Penney (JCP) lost 0.8% share in 2017, with shareholdings remaining roughly flat for Target (TGT) and Kohl's (KSS). He maintains an Overweight rating and $1,550 price target on Amazon shares.

Sears-Amazon tire partnership not a negative for Monro, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Bret Jordan kept his Hold rating and $60 price target on Monro (MNRO) after its stock price fell over 7.5% today to $52.70, saying Sears (SHLD) partnership with Amazon (AMZN) on tire installation and services is a not "transformational negative". Jordan notes that the greater transparency and price matching is not new, while Monro is "already an installer for other online sellers such as Tirerack and ATD's tirebuyer.com". The analyst adds that the agreement is not exclusive, leaving the "door open" for Monro to enter into a similar deal.

Outperform
Newell weakness on potential Sears bankruptcy fears overdone, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog believes today's weakness in shares of Newell Brands (NWL) is likely due to concerns about a potential bankruptcy of Sears (SHLD) as well as ongoing China tariff negotiations. However, she views the move as a "complete overreaction," arguing that Newell's exposure to Sears is fairly limited. Herzog, who sees today's weakness as overblown and would be a buyer amid the weakness, reiterates her Outperform rating on Newell shares, which are down 7% to $20.28 in late morning trading.
