BTIG says H&R Block's pricing transparency does not offset volume pressure
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer kept his Sell rating and $19 price target on H&R Block, saying that despite the company's promise to "reduce assisted tax preparation prices for many customers by allowing to calculate how much they will pay before the tax prep process begins", the 2019 tax season assisted volume estimates look "vulnerable". The analyst adds that the added disclosure is not sufficiently "meaningful" to offset the headwinds faced by H&R Block in next year's tax prep season.

H&R Block target raised to $29 on Q1 beat at Barrington
Barrington analyst Alexander Paris raised his price target for H&R Block to $29 from $27 after the company's Q1 results topped expectations. The analyst, however, notes adds that given the seasonality of the tax industry, the first quarter is not indicative of full-year performance. He maintains an Outperform rating on H&R Block shares. Paris is looking past "to the transition year to a return to growth and margin expansion in FY/20 and beyond."

Uncertainty around H&R Block to persist, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer kept his Sell rating and $19 price target on H&R Block (HRB), saying the uncertainty around the company's medium-term prospects is likely to persist, keeping the stock under pressure. Palmer points to the recent 18% decline in the stock price after the company's June 12th financial guidance indicating that the changes in the company's pricing structure were due to the less favorable simplified U.S. tax laws. The analyst also expects the U.S. Treasury's foray into tax simplification to accelerate the shift to online tax filing, marginalizing H&R Block to a fraction of the market share of Intuit's (INTU) TurboTax.

Intuit upgraded to Buy on TurboTax share gains, QuickBooks growth at Stifel
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Brad Reback upgraded Intuit (INTU) to Buy from Hold, as he believes its two primary business divisions each have improving competitive dynamics and multiple secular growth drivers. On the TurboTax side, Reback highlights that Intuit's primary competitor, H&R Block (HRB), recently announced plans to close 400 tax stores, which should put additional market share up for grabs in 2019. On the QuickBooks side, Reback continues to believe the platform is just as important to the company's long-term strategy and should help to sustain mid-teens growth in the company's Small Business Segment. He raised his price target on Intuit shares to $240 from $197.

Regulatory developments could impact Flipkart ability to compete, says Oppenheimer
After spending almost a week in India, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh agrees with Walmart's (WMT) assessment of a significant longer-term opportunity online. The market has low penetration and industry data suggest robust double-digit growth for the foreseeable future, he adds. However, the analyst notes that recent regulatory developments could adversely impact Flipkart's ability to compete. He awaits Walmart's formal assessment, but it appears the Indian government is attempting to make it more difficult for foreign owned players such as Walmart and Amazon (AMZN) to compete. Parikh still views the Flipkart investment as high risk/high reward. He reiterates a Perform rating and $100 price target on Walmart's shares.

Morgan Stanley says UnitedHealth, Walgreens could benefit from CVS-Walmart fight
After CVS Health (CVS) announced Walmart (WMT) will leave Caremark's commercial and Managed Medicaid retail pharmacy networks at the end of April 2019, analysts at Morgan Stanley discussed the potential impact of the fight to both companies and to competitors. Analyst Ricky Goldwasser said the dispute "brings back memories" of the Express Scripts (ESRX) and Walgreens (WBA) breakup in 2011, but unlike in that case it is only the early days of the 2019/2020 selling season, not after the selling season concluded. Walmart's plans to leave should have a limited impact on CVS' FY19 EPS power, but adds uncertainty to PBM selling season if not resolved in the near-term, said Goldwasser. Morgan Stanley's Simeon Gutman said that if the dispute is not resolved, it could end up reducing Walmart's EBIT by about $260M in 2019, which he estimates could have a 7c, or 1.5%, impact on EPS. In terms of who may benefit if no resolution is reached, the team estimates both Walgreens and CVS retail could gain an incremental 25 bps of pharmacy share and that UnitedHealth's (UNH) Optum and Cigna (CI) could see a step up in PBM selling season win rates. However, given Walmart's relatively low share, they view the PBM share opportunity as "minimal."

Piper sees Q4 revenue upside potential for Funko
After traveling with management, Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy keeps an Overweight rating on Funko (FNKO) with a $21 price target. The analyst continues to believe Funko is a "unique" small-cap growth story benefiting from its "superior" fast-turn business model in an "ever-expanding content-rich space." Murphy sees opportunity for Q4 revenue upside as Walmart (WMT) likely reverses from a negative low single digit percent headwind through October to a positive low single digit tailwind. She views Funko's valuation at current share levels.

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."
