L Brands visibility remains low despite better Sept comps, says MKM Partners

MKM Partners analyst Roxanne Meyer kept her Neutral rating and $31 price target on L Brands (LB), saying that while the company reported better than expected same store sales in September and its Victoria's Secret brand comps turned positive, its visibility remains low. The analyst lists potential catalysts for L Brands being a "strong performance of pajamas in Q4 and the reintroduction of swimwear" at VS, but also points to her "newest concern" being the likelihood of a Sears (SHLD) liquidation, which would then reduce traffic at malls where the company also has retail presence.

L Brands upgraded to Neutral at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded L Brands to Neutral from Underperform and raised its price target to $33 from $26. Analyst Lorraine Hutchinson believes the Henri Bendel brand closure is the first attempt by management to focus on and stabilize shareholder value. Hutchinson also said valuation and the 8% dividend yield provide share support.

Piper concerned by ongoing promotional activity at Victoria's Secret
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy says her channel checks at Victoria's Secret stores suggest heightened levels of promotional activity have yet to abate. She believes the "B2GO" free bra promotion was extended by a week and that it was extended in select markets towards PINK product, which was supposed to be excluded. Murphy points out that L Brands reported a Victoria's Secret comp of down 5% for August, driven by declines in PINK. The analyst remains cautious on shares of L Brands, despite its recent decision to exit Henri Bendel, and awaits further visibility into the performance at Victoria's Secret. She keeps a Neutral rating on the shares with a $28 price target.

L Brands sales update encouraging amid weak sentiment, says Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager noted L Brands reported September comps well ahead of expectations, with upside at both Victoria Secret and Bath and Body Works. He also noted the company is looking to sell the La Senza division, which should present an earnings tailwind next year while reinforcing that management should take more aggressive actions to drive shareholder value. Altschwager reiterated his Outperform rating and $40 price target on L Brands 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.

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.

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.
