Big Lots downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs analyst Christopher Prykull downgraded Big Lots to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $34 from $48. The analyst cites margin concerns for the downgrade. Big Lots has posted two consecutive quarters of disappointing earnings results, primarily due to margin pressure, Prykull tells investors in a research note. Further, he's less certain this pressure will subside entering 2019.

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.

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.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Big Lots to Equal Weight on potential earnings reset
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Vincent Sinisi downgraded Big Lots to Equal Weight from Overweight as he now believes the company's transformation is likely to take longer than he'd previously expected. The company's underperformance in 2018, in a highly favorable consumer environment, was driven by elevated expenses, which Sinisi believes are likely to continue, he tells investors. He has lowered his estimates to below the Street to reflect significant margin and expense headwinds from freight, tariffs and remodel investments and contends that a further earnings reset may be needed for 2019. Sinisi cut his price target on Big Lots shares to $33 from $43.
