Big Lots downgraded to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill

BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Haas double downgraded Big Lots to Underperform from Buy and cut his price target for the shares to $23 from $45. The company's outlook for the rest of the year may be too optimistic and could be cut further, Haas tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes shares of Big Lots "will continue to struggle" until consistent improvement in earnings growth is demonstrated.

Piper calls Big Lots 'intriguing value/GARP idea' for 2019
After meeting with management, Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith highlights Big Lots as an "intriguing value/GARP idea" for 2019. A value idea must be cheap but also have some interesting developments, and Big Lots has several, Keith tells investors in a research note. Some of these, according to the analyst, are remodel benefits building to a 1.5%-2% comp lift, good visibility on gross margin expansion, a $100M cost take-out initiative, and new merchandising initiatives. Keith sees a "healthy" risk/reward on Big Lots shares and reiterates an Overweight rating on the name with a $44 price target.

Big Lots downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith downgraded Big Lots to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $31 from $44. The analyst says the downgrade is based on risk to first half of 2019 estimates as well as ongoing tariff concerns. The analyst believes Big Lots' Q1 was "in-line at best" and that Q2 "appears to have stepped up markdown activity." On tariffs, Big Lots imports 21% of sales from China with a majority now getting tariffed at 25%, Keith tells investors in a research note.

SQM (SQM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Joel Jackson saying a lithium rebound or a bottoming in sentiment may take longer and that the company's earnings trajectory no longer warrants a bullish outlook. 3. Lennox (LII) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Damian Karas saying the company is trading at a "peak multiple on peak growth." 4. Weibo (WB) downgraded to Reduce from Hold at HSBC. 5. Big Lots (BIG) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Peter Keith saying the downgrade is based on risk to first half of 2019 estimates as well as ongoing tariff concerns.
