Big Lots price target lowered to $44 from $53 at KeyBanc

KeyBanc analyst Bradley Thomas lowered his price target for Big Lots to $44 from $53 after the company reported a strong 3.4% comp, the best since 2011, but updated guidance raised questions around the margin outlook. A soft start to Q4 is requiring greater markdowns, and Big Lots is also increasing investments in new and remodeled stores, he notes. The analyst is "particularly disappointed" in the magnitude of margin cut for Q4, but is optimistic Q4 can meet new guidance and remain positive on the consumer outlook for 1H, supported by a favorable tax refund backdrop. Thomas reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
