Walmart outlook challenging despite market share increases, says UBS

UBS analyst Michael Lasser said Walmart's Q4 results showed the myriad of actions it has been taking have been working and have allowed it to take market share in a number of important categories. The analyst noted its e-commerce business increased by over 40%, which was probably double the market growth rate. Despite the positive momentum, he believes the outlook gets more challenging from here. Lasser maintained his Neutral rating and raised his price target to $105 from $100 on Walmart shares.

Tivity Health price target lowered to $28 from $34 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald lowered his price target on Tivity Health (TVTY) to $28 to reflect the lower FY19 guidance that accompanied an otherwise solid Q4 report. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on the shares however and further notes that there are potential benefits coming from the pending Nutrisystem (NTRI) deal, with added positives out of the company's recent Walmart (WMT) agreement and its "cap-ex light model".

Walmart Q4 benefited from strong U.S. sales and low tax rate, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Andrew Wolf kept his Hold rating and $102 price target on Walmart following its Q4 results, saying the earnings beat was "driven by a lower-than-guided tax rate and better-than-forecasted U.S. Segment same-store sales growth of 4.2%". The analyst also notes that while the company's e-commerce sales growth of 43% was "strong", its variable cost structure will remain a headwind on profitability this year. Wolf adds that Walmart shares are valued "in line with the mean of its closest peers" but also trade at about a 27% premium to their historical averages on expected forward earnings basis.

Walmart re-rating unlikely without earnings acceleration, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst R. Scot Ciccarelli said Walmart's improvements and investments continue to deliver impressive sales growth and market share gains, though earnings flow-through "remains subdued." The analyst, who thinks that a sustained acceleration in profit growth is needed for Walmart shares to re-rate meaningfully higher, remains on the sidelines with a Sector Perform rating on the stock.

Deutsche Bank says Walmart investors relieved after company backs guidance
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell reiterated his Buy rating on Walmart following the company's Q4 earnings report, stating that its "high-quality beat" was driven by Walmart U.S. comps, 43% growth in e-commerce and improving leverage at Walmart U.S. "Perhaps more importantly," fears around greater Flipkart dilution were refuted as the company reiterated 2019 guidance, said Trussell, who believes rearmed expectations for continued EBIT and EPS growth excluding Flipkart "should provide a green light to accumulate shares."
