Amazon eyeing closed Sears for Whole Foods expansion, Yahoo Finance says

Amazon's (AMZN) Whole Foods is eyeing sites that were previously home to Sears (SHLD), Kmart and other struggling retailers, according to Yahoo Finance. Whole Foods now has 436 stores around the country, still a far cry from competitors like including Walmart (WMT) and Kroger (KR), the publication noted. Landlords are increasingly interested in signing grocery and food retailers because they can help drive foot traffic to a strip mall, Neil Saunders, managing director of retail at GlobalData, told Yahoo Finance. Pursuant to a master lease, Seritage Growth Properties (SRG) has the right to recapture certain space from Sears for retenanting or redevelopment purposes. Reference Link

Amazon to benefit from strong ad spending, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge said his survey shows ad buyers appear more bullish on 2019, which he contends will be positive for Amazon.com. The analyst said digital will continue to gain share at the expense of traditional mediums and Amazon's ROI is perceived as strong. Blackledge reiterated his Outperform rating and $2,250 price target on Amazon shares.

Twitter named a 2019 best Internet idea at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth names Twitter (TWTR) a best Internet idea for 2019 along with Facebook (FB) and Amazon.com (AMZN). Twitter shares increased 20% in 2018 on "continued solid" daily active user growth, "significant" revenue re-acceleration following 2017 declines, and the company's first full year of GAAP profitability, Anmuth tells investors in a research note. Going into 2019, he believes Twitter is making "meaningful progress on its health work identifying malicious and spammy content." Quality improvements should drive benefits to usage and advertising revenue long-term, adds the analyst. Further, Anmuth's channel checks suggest Twitter's advertising products and improving return on investment "are increasingly resonating with marketers." The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $44 from $45 and keeps an Overweight rating on Twitter. The stock closed yesterday up 44c to $32.25 and is up 3% in premarket trading to $33.26 after BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post double upgraded his rating on Twitter to Buy from Underperform.

Amazon database negative for MondoDB, validates opportunity, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron notes that AWS (AMZN) announced DocumentDB, a MongoDB (DMB)-compatible database designed to give users performance, scalability, and availability when operating mission-critical MongoDB workloads at scale. While the development is negative and adds to competitive pressures, the analyst sees positives as it validates MongoDB's growing popularity and market opportunity and it is likely to offer MongoDB a permanent feature advantage. Further, Kidron argues that MongoDB still maintains its cloud-independent value proposition. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $90 price target on MongoDB's shares.

Stifel doesn't see meaningful near-term impact on MongoDB from new AWS offering
After Amazon Web Services (AMZN) announced Amazon DocumentDB, a MongoDB (MDB) compatible database that is a managed offering, Stifel analyst Brad Reback said he was not surprised by the news given MongoDB's "tremendous developer popularity," but he does expect MongoDB shares to be under pressure. With that said, Reback does not expect this product to have a meaningful impact on MongoDB's near-term business, due to a lack of being able to access core MongoDB functionality within the database, his belief that customers value Mongo's deployment optionality and lack of lock-in, and the fact that Atlas already offers many of same features AWS is touting. Reback keeps a Buy rating and $95 price target on MongoDB shares, which are down $10.63, or 12%, to $75.99 in pre-market trading.

J.C. Penney looks best positioned to gain share from Sears, says Credit Suisse
Looking at potential near-term same-store sales lift Softlines Retail peers could see from share gains based on proximity to Sears (SHLD) stores amid a possible liquidation, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti says J.C. Penney (JCP) and Burlington Stores (BURL) seem best positioned to gain share in 2019 due to close proximity. And while J.C. Penney looks best positioned to gain share from Sears, the analyst thinks the recent stock run-up is "a short-term bounce." Binetti does not see this as sustainable customer acquisition for J.C. Penney given the increased risk of closing destabilized malls, limited visibility to an improved merchandise strategy, and leverage constraints to growth investing. Overall, the analyst believes that while there may be some near-term share benefit, a Sears liquidation could be a bigger tipping point that will accelerate closures of already weakening U.S. C&D malls.

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.

Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba kept his Buy rating and $88 price target on Best Buy (BBY) after Sears Holdings (SHLD) declared bankruptcy over the weekend, saying it should be a "major beneficiary" from the latter's eventual "likely" liquidation. The analyst estimates the liquidation could add as much as 47c or 8.5% accretion to Best Buy FY19 EPS, with the company picking up a "fair share" on the consumer electronics side of the business as the "last man standing" in terms of dedicated national brick-and-mortar retailers.

Whirlpool price target lowered to $125 from $175 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Susan Maklari lowered her price target for Whirlpool (WHR) to $125 from $175 to reflect continued pressures from inflation and reduced overhead leverage. While international challenges continue to drag on results, pricing in North America could help provide a necessary offset, she contends. The analyst notes that Sears' (SHLD) Chapter 11 filing should result in few changes in long-term appliance trends, though there could be some near-term choppiness as 142 additional stores are closed and liquidated. Maklari reiterates an Outperform rating on Whirlpool shares.

Amazon fee changes should improve selection, volume, says Baird
After Amazon (AMZN) announced changes to marketplace referral fees, or take rates, as well as fulfillment and storage fees for fulfillment by Amazon, which will take effect in mid-February, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian says he thinks the fee changes should improve production selection and volume while offsetting higher delivery costs. Sebastian tells investors in a research note that he believes the Amazon Marketplace could be more competitive with traditional retailers such as Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT), which currently sell significant volumes of consumables, and with online vertical sites such as Wayfair (W) in the Furniture/Home Decor category. He maintains an Outperform rating and $2,100 price target on Amazon shares.

Morgan Stanley says Amazon may be near ceiling with current apparel offering
Morgan Stanley analyst Kimberly Greenberger reports that the firm's apparel survey showed that 72% of consumers purchased apparel on Amazon (AMZN) in the past 6 months, up from 69% last year. While this suggests Amazon continues to take apparel market share, the fact that the figure had jumped by 11% from 2016 to 2017 shows its gains may have slowed, said Greenberger, who noted that survey data and analysis suggest this may be due to Amazon seeing less success in fashion apparel versus its traction in apparel basics. Amazon ranked third lowest in terms of perception of offering "fashionable" clothing out of the more than 30 retailers surveyed, with only Walmart (WMT) and Costco (COST) ranked lower, noted Greenberger, who believes a lack of fashion success does not preclude Amazon from becoming the number one apparel market share player but could limit its long-term share gains. The fact that fashion "may be a more difficult code to crack" may also mean that traditional apparel retailers who lead in fashion credibility or low-price can better survive long-term, added the analyst. As previously reported, Greenberger upgraded Urban Outfitters (URBN) to Overweight this morning, in part due to its "fashion authority."

Baird sees near-term disruption for Amazon from India's new regulations
The Indian government earlier this week announced changes to its foreign direct investment regulations for e-commerce, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes these will at least temporarily slow the growth for Amazon.com (AMZN), Flipkart, which is majority owned by Walmart (WMT), and other foreign-owned marketplaces. However, after speaking with multiple contacts in the India e-commerce industry, Sebastian also believes that these platforms, over time, will adapt, limiting the long-term risk to their leading market positions. For Amazon, the analyst expects some near-term operational challenges as the company unwinds its stakes in some larger sellers, pursues additional sources of product listings, and ends exclusive deals and aggressive product discounting. He believes India will remain a focus for Amazon and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $2,100 price target.

Amazon lead highlighted in holiday shopping survey, says JMP Securities
Following the firm's recent survey of about 250 online shoppers, JMP Securities analyst Ronald Josey said the results of the polling make him incrementally confident in Amazon's (AMZN) ability to continue to take wallet share. The survey showed Amazon is the first shopping destination of 73% of respondents and it also revealed a Prime member base expansion compared to last year, noted Josey. Walmart (WMT), Target (TGT) and eBay (EBAY) were the other most often used e-commerce sites among respondents, the analyst noted. He keeps an Outperform rating and $2,050 price target on Amazon shares.

Jefferies sees favorable risk/reward on Kroger, ups target to $35
Jefferies analyst Christopher Mandeville says that although Kroger's grocery comp progress was pushed to fiscal 2019, greater color provided at the investor day on its shift to new, higher margin data services gives him comfort in the company's long-term profitability. The analyst believes the "wide disparity" between consensus estimates and Kroger's $3.5B fiscal 2020 EBIT target creates a favorable risk/reward. He raised his price target for the shares to $35 from $33 and keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Kroger risk/reward balanced at current levels, says Oppenheimer
Oppenehimer analyst Rupesh Parikh reiterated a Perform rating and $31 price target on Kroger ahead of its Analyst Day on October 31, telling investors in a research note that he has remained on the sidelines due primarily to top-line concerns driven by Restock KR disruption, minimal food inflation and the deflating impact of price investments. Parikh says he views Kroger's longer-term targets as "aggressive," but keeps a positive bias into the event as expectations are below management targets and the setup for shares could potentially improve. Parikh views risk/reward balanced at current levels.

Kroger reaffirmation of three-year goals a positive surprise, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf noted Kroger reconfirmed its 2018 EPS projections, which are in-line with consensus, adding that the company's reaffirmation of its three-year financial goals should be viewed as a "positive surprise." However, Kroger also lowered its identical-store sales guidance for the second half of the year to be similar to the first-half result of 1.8%, which Wolf said is "meaningfully below" the company's previously implied second-half comp guidance of 2.2%-3.2%. The analyst, who thinks tomorrow's analyst day will largely be focused on convincing the investment community that its long-term financial goals are obtainable and clearing up the path to accelerating same-store sales growth, keeps a Hold rating on Kroger shares.

Kroger near-term visibility is 'solid', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf kept his Hold rating and $30 price target on Kroger after its Q3 earnings beat, saying the quarter was driven by "solid cost control and gasoline profitability". The analyst also cites Kroger's comps of 1.6% topping his forecast of 1.2% and matching the growth rate of Q2, even though the company's "aggressive" 600-store remodel progress "remains below plan". Wolf adds that Kroger's valuation is unlikely to expand without acceleration in comps growth, even though he sees the company's visibility as "solid".
