Walmart confirms 'seriously' considering IPO for Asda unit, Bloomberg reports

Walmart confirmed it's considering an initial public offering for its Asda unit after U.K. antitrust regulators blocked a planned merger with rival J Sainsbury Plc, Bloomberg's Matthew Boyle and Deirdre Hipwell report. "While we are not rushing into anything, I want you to know that we are seriously considering a path to an IPO," Judith McKenna, the company's international chief, told employees at an internal event in Leeds, England, on Tuesday, according to a summary of the event provided by the company. She said any preparations for going public would "take years" the report noted. Reference Link

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Domtar (UFS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Maguire saying the current valuation on the stock marks an attractive entry point. 2. Kirby (KEX) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter stating shares have been under pressure due to overcapacity in the barging market. 3. Walmart (WMT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Brandon Fletcher saying that while he thinks Walmart has not been able to return to its full potential for decades, the fully realized vision of what Walmart could be is "so fantastic that, if it even accidentally leans in the right direction," it could create an outsized investment return over several years. 4. Seagate (STX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher stating the company looks to be "closer" to the end of the downturn in its end markets and he expects its "revitalized portfolio" to be well positioned once demand recovers. 5. Tilray (TLRY) upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Owen Bennett saying that while he remains cautious on Tilray's outlook, "this now appears to be much better appreciated by the market" at current valuation levels.

Green Dot price target lowered to $75 from $100 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Joseph Vafi lowered his price target on Green Dot (GDOT) to $75 after its FY19 profitability guidance cut, saying the company's decision to "materially" increase investment this year was "surprising." The analyst also notes that Green Dot's attractive end market opportunities and leading position justify his maintained Buy rating. Vafi adds that he was encouraged by the management's commentary indicating "increased collaboration on new products with Walmart (WMT)" ahead of its expected contract renewal with the retailer next year.

Tariffs to yield major EPS cuts, higher customer prices, says Cowen
Amid the U.S./China trade battle, Cowen analyst Oliver Chen says negative EPS impact could be (10%-(30%) or worse as retailers are unlikely to be able to pass on all of potential cost of goods sold increases. The analyst believes the best positioned Outperform rated stocks are Planet Fitness (PLNT), Walmart (WMT), Ulta Beauty (ULTA), LVMH (LVMUY), and Costco (COST) as these have lower China sourcing risk and greater scale. He sees the most potential vulnerability at apparel and department store retailers. Further, Chen believes that consumers could experience price increases by as much as 10%-15% across impacted categories, which would yield up to $100B or more of incremental cost to consumers, depending on the breadth and depth of goods impacted. These factors are likely to impact supply/demand planning for back to school and holiday, he contends.
