Macys options volume is 3X daily average ahead of earnings

Macys options volume is 3X daily average ahead of earnings. The stock up 17c to $21.75 after notching 52-week lows Tuesday morning and one player buys an 8K lot of May 20 puts for 38c, tied, and seems to be bracing for volatility in shares between now and Friday. More than 10K trade at that line against 20K open interest, biggest OI in the name, and trade history shows the bulk opened 3/8 when 15K printed 63c with bid-ask 59 to 60c. May 19, Nov 30, and May 21.5 puts are next most active in the name today and total volume equals 23K calls and 44K puts. Earnings due tomorrow morning and Macy's is a big mover, with average daily post-earnings swings of 8.5% over the past eight quarters. May ATM straddle is 10% of spot price.

Dillard's price target lowered to $65 from $70 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Jen Redding lowered his price target for Dillard's (DDS) to $65 from $70 as she leans cautiously into earnings, with her data models showing revenues a touch below consensus, elevated e-commerce inventories, and lackluster consumer spending fueled by a late tax return season, likely compounding pressures for the beleaguered department store group. Though shares depreciated less than Macy's (M), Nordstrom (JWN), and Kohl's (KSS) for the period November 5 through January 31, the analyst attributes relative outperformance compared to the peer group as owing to Dillard's low profile presence on the street, and limited availability of data points versus investor expectations for an upcoming positive catalyst. Redding reiterates a Neutral rating on Dillard's shares.

Macy's Q1 owned comps estimate lowered at Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Rusty Wilson lowered his Q1 owned comp store sales estimate for Macy's to down 0.5% from flat, citing weather headwinds and soft trends during Easter and the company's "Friends & Family" event. He noted that consensus calls for a 0.1% decline in owned comps in Q1. Wilson, who also thinks gross margin will be pressured by elevated markdowns and promotions in Q1, keeps a Neutral rating on Macy's shares.
