Big Lots price target lowered to $39 from $53 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith lowered his price target for Big Lots to $39 to reflect the company's miss in Q3 but keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. While the analyst still expects "notable comp acceleration" in the first half of 2019 from tax refunds, he thinks the Q3 results mark an inflection point for Big Lots with rising costs. He reduced his 2019 earnings per share estimate to $3.55 from $4.80.

Loop lowers Big Lots price target to $32 after third straght 'miss and lower'
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba said he was disappointed by Big Lots' Q3 earnings report, noting that this was the third straight time the company has missed its own internal EPS forecast and lowered its FY18 guidance. The only "silver linings" he currently sees in the Q3 report are the company's "robust" comparable store sales growth and Store of the Future remodel results that he calls "encouraging." Chukumba cut his price target on Big Lots shares to $32 from $43 and keeps a Hold rating on the stock.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Brennan Hawken saying he believes "misperceptions about late cycle risk" has created an attractive entry point for shares. 2. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded two notches to Buy from Sell at SunTrust, to Buy from Neutral at Citi, and to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse. 3. Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Steven Seedhouse saying he thinks TR-B remains one of the most promising mechanisms with proof-of-concept in NASH based on VK2809 and MGL-3196 data presented and conversations with physicians. 4. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Peter Keith saying he expects a "strong" tax refund season in early 2019 for lower/moderate-income families. 5. Booking Holdings (BKNG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Robert Coolbrith saying he believes current valuation offers a favorable entry point.

Big Lots upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith upgraded Big Lots to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $53 from $43. The analyst expects to a "strong" tax refund season in early 2019 for lower/moderate-income families. A key driver is the increase of the Child Tax Credit, which should "solidly benefit" Big Lots' comp trends in the first half of 2019, Keith tells investors in a research note. Separately, the analyst estimates accelerated Store of the Future rollout can benefit comps by 1.5% for 2019.
