Conviction Buy
Goldman starts Nordstrom with Conviction Buy, Macy's with Sell
Goldman Sachs analyst Alexandra Walvis initiated coverage of the Apparel & Accessories Retail sector with an Attractive coverage view. The analyst sees an "ongoing role for select best-in-class brick and mortar retailers" and feels "underappreciated business models" offer upside in select stocks. Walvis initiated coverage of Nordstrom (JWN) with a Buy rating and $73 price target and added the shares to her firm's Conviction List. The company offers a "full price business with a strong omnichannel offer and premium curated product," the analyst tells investors in a research note. On the other side, Walvis started Macy's (M) with a Sell rating and $33 price target. The company's strategic initiatives are insufficient to offset traffic headwinds for its portfolio of large, mall-based stores, Walvis contends. The analyst also put Buy ratings on Kohl's (KSS) and TJX (TJX), and Neutral ratings on Burlington Stores (BURL) and Ross Stores (ROST).

Sector Perform
Macy's sell-off is 'the function of profit taking', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Brian Tunick kept his Sector Perform rating and $39 price target on Macy's after its Q2 results, saying the earnings were "solid" and the outlook for the rest of FY18 was encouraging. The analyst believes that the selloff after the results was a "function of profit taking", with the stock having risen about 70% year-to-date, along with a more challenging comparisons in the second half of the year. Tunick states that he expects Macy's business momentum and initiatives to allow it to achieve its FY18 guidance.

Blue Apron deal with GrubHub and one-time test provide flexibility, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma believes Blue Apron's (APRN) new partnership with GrubHub (GRUB) should provide a solid foundation for the launch of its on-demand meal kit offering and that its beta-test of its one-time delivery option on its own platform provides increased flexibility for customers. The analyst, who see the one-time delivery option as a unique offering, keeps a Sector Weight rating on Blue Apron shares.

Blue Apron downside risk limited at current levels, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Michael Graham noted Blue Apron reported mixed Q2 results and said the guidance suggests the revenue impact from the "transition" year will get worse in Q3 and Q4 before it gets better. Despite that, he sees reasons to be optimistic heading into 2019, including a likely return to intensive marketing and upside from nascent multi-channel offerings. Graham maintained his Buy rating and lowered his price target to $6 from $8 on Blue Apron shares.

Blue Apron's Costco test 'progressign well,' says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma told investors in a research note that Blue Apron's (APRN) expansion of its on-demand meal kits at Costco (COST) continues to progress well, spreading to the Midwest and Southern areas of the U.S., and that this reinforces his increasingly constructive stance. While still small compared to direct-to-consumer, Yruma says the kits provide an opportunity for Blue Apron to conveniently reach new customers with a best-in-class national partner and that its upside prospects are becoming more favorable. Yruma maintains a Sector Weight rating, says valuation looks reasonable, and adds that operational issues at the Linden fulfillment centers are "largely in the past."

UPGRADE

Blue Apron upgraded to Neutral on retail partnership potential at Northcoast
As previously reported, Northcoast analyst Charles Cerankosky upgraded Blue Apron to Neutral from Sell. He noted that management is suggesting the company could be at breakeven EBITDA by year end, though he "is far less optimistic." Still, given the pressure of its negative cash flow, he thinks Blue Apron will explore a retail distribution partnership, which could have a potential headline benefit. However, Cerankosky added that he expects that even if such a retail distribution partnership was struck, he believes "disappointing sales at retail would likely force such a relationship to die quickly."
