J.C. Penney CEO says company has capacity to deliver improved results

"For the past few months, I have met with and listened to JCPenney associates throughout the organization, as well as our valued suppliers, customers and other partners, to gain their candid perspectives on our Company, both positive and constructive. Based on everything I have seen and heard, I am even more convinced that JCPenney is a revered brand that has the capacity to deliver improved results. In spite of our past financial performance, we have already taken meaningful steps to drive improvement in key businesses such as women's apparel, active apparel, special sized apparel and fine jewelry," said Jill Soltau, CEO of JCPenney. "As we forge a path to sustainable profitable growth, our decisions included eliminating non-core and low gross margin product categories, significantly reducing unproductive inventory and continuing the revitalization of our women's apparel business. While we are pleased with these actions, we know we need to move faster to reestablish the fundamentals of retail, build capabilities focused on satisfying our customers' wants and needs and ensure that our digital and store operations operate seamlessly to provide an experience that wins with customers. We have much work to do to position JCPenney for success and create long-term value for our shareholders, however our unwavering focus and discipline is already enabling meaningful progress," Soltau added.

Nordstrom price target lowered to $50 from $55 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti lowered his price target for Nordstrom (JWN) to $50 from $55 on weak full-price holiday adding to already clearance filled January. With Nordstrom adding to industry markdown issues, the analyst sees negative reads for J.C. Penney (JCP), Kohl's (KSS), Gap (GPS), but positive for Burlington Stores (BURL), Ross Stores (ROST), and TJX (TJX). Binetti reiterates a Neutral rating on Nordstrom shares.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Home Depot (HD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Elizabeth Suzuki saying peak growth has passed. 2. J.C. Penney (JCP) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Argus with analyst John Eade saying he anticipates continued losses for the stock for the next two years while also warning that at a current share price below $2, the company is operating with a more elevated risk. 3. Nvidia (NVDA) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley FBR and to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs. 4. Michael Kors (KORS) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Nagel saying he is "concerned" that ongoing challenges with inventory management and replenishment at the company's namesake brand and softness within fashion watches will weigh on top-line trends and potentially margins, just as management begins the integration of Versace. 5. TSMC (TSM) was downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley while UMC (UMC) was downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

J.C. Penney downgraded to Sell from Hold at Argus
Argus analyst John Eade downgraded J.C. Penney to Sell, anticipating continued losses for the stock for the next two years while also warning that at a current share price below $2, the company is operating with a more elevated risk. The analyst states that while J.C Penney has made efforts to "restructure its merchandise assortment, close underperforming stores, and bolster its Omnichannel business, its operating results continue to deteriorate." Eade cites the company's margin deterioration coming from store closings, poor inventory management, and "steep discounting" intended to clear excess inventory. The analyst also sees J.C. Penney operating against "intense" competition from a wide range of retailers and suffering from weak mall traffic, while also facing a very expensive "arms race" to improve e-commerce capabilities.
