Costco March comps to rebound, says Baird

Baird analyst Peter Benedict kept his Outperform rating and $250 price target on Costco ahead of its March comps results next week, saying he expects the month to rebound from a softer figure of 4.6% in February as the headwinds of weather and Easter calendar shift fade. The analyst estimates March comps to rise 7%-8% and believes that the company's "entrenched value position, loyal membership base, and emerging omni-channel sophistication" should sustain its standout position in retail.

Outperform
Costco initiated with an Outperform at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Greg Melich started Costco with an Outperform rating and $260 base case price target. While Costco "faces the Amazon wall of worry," he believes its sticky membership model creates loyalty that can drive sales and profits for years to come.

Buy
Costco price target raised to $280 from $270 at UBS
UBS analyst Michael Lasser raised his price target on Costco (COST) to $280 and kept his Buy rating as part of his deep dive analysis into warehouse clubs. The analyst says the model "remains relevant" and has a "sturdy place" in the omnichannel world, noting that his survey of 1.5K shoppers shows that consumers are loyal to the concept. Lasser cites 91% of Costco members responding that they are "very or somewhat likely to renew", which outpaces intentions recorded at Sam's Club (WMT) and BJ's (BJ). The analyst further notes that Costco has produced 8 consecutive quarters of mid-single-digit core comp growth, suggesting the company's "leadership in this category".

Buy
Costco price target raised to $265 from $260 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Costco to $265 from $260 and reiterated a Buy rating following mid-quarter estimate adjustments. In a research note to investors, Champine says the most meaningful change made to her model is a slight increase to gross margin in fiscal 2020 and beyond as she expects increased penetration of private label product to continue to boost product margin. She also expects an acceleration from 5% same-store sales growth in the February quarter to 7% in the May quarter as weather improves.

Neutral
Bed Bath & Beyond upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi
Citi analyst Geoff Small upgraded Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) to Neutral from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $18 from $10 after taking over coverage of the name. Citi transferred coverage of Broadlines & Hardlines Retail names to Small. The analyst assumed coverage with Buy ratings on AutoZone (AZO), BJ's Wholesale (BJ), Home Depot (HD), Lowe's (LOW), O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) and Walmart (WMT). The U.S. consumer remains on "solid footing" amid low unemployment, rising wages, declining gas prices, manageable levels of debt, and elevated consumer confidence, Small tells investors in a research note. However, he points out that we are in the ninth year of the current economic expansion and "the possibility of a macroeconomic slowdown cannot be ignored." The analyst prefers retailers operating in "defensive sectors that are less susceptible to disruption by online competitors," namely auto parts, broadlines and home improvement retail. Small also assumed Advance Auto Parts (AAP), Best Buy (BBY), Costco (COST) and Office Depot (ODP) with Neutral ratings.
