Costco price target raised to $289 following 'solid' June comps at Stifel

Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Costco (COST) reported "solid" June comparable sales growth of 5.1% total and 5.3% for its U.S. core business, which were both a bit better than consensus forecasts. He reads the results as an indication that Costco can coexist with large hardline competitors like Walmart (WMT) while having limited cannibalization from Amazon (AMZN), Astrachan tells investors. He also continues to view it as "reasonable" that Costco could declare a special dividend in the next few quarters given its "sizable and increasing" cash balance. Astrachan keeps a Buy rating on Costco shares and raised his price target on the stock to $289 from $261.

Costco price target raised to $295 from $270 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh raised his price target for Costco to $295 from $270, while reiterating the stock as a top pick. The analyst continues to believe a premium valuation is warranted and is increasingly supported by a much more accommodative interest rate backdrop. In addition, Parikh thinks a potential special dividend per his estimate of $10-$15 could further enhance investor returns in coming quarters. On the natural/organic front, Costco continues to expand the organic selection at healthy rates, he adds. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Overstock tech stack would be valuable to strategic buyers, says DA Davidson

Forte said that he believes Overstock's technology would "enable the three potential suitors we have written the most about," namely Costco (COST), Target (TGT), and TJMaxx (TJX), to advance their own e-commerce efforts, among other things.

Baird analyst Peter Benedict raised his price target on Costco to $290 and kept his Outperform rating after the company's June comps data, saying its traffic also improved sequentially by about 100bps and its underlying 2-year stack held firm. The analyst remains positive on the company and sees it as a "growth staple", as its management continues to streamline its "omni-channel capabilities" and boost its competitive position.

FedEx price target lowered to $175 from $184 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry lowered her price target for FedEx (FDX) to $175 from $184, while reiterating an Outperform rating on the shares. Given FedEx's historical track record for setting an optimistic outlook, the analyst was "a bit surprised" at the fiscal year 2020 guidance for a MSD EPS decline. Landry is less constructive on the stock fundamentally from a mid-term perspective, but on a longer-term view, she continues to think that FedEx is well positioned strategically to benefit from the evolving domestic parcel market; and specifically, views its alignment with large, traditional retailers - such as Walmart (WMT and Target (TGT) - that are looking for ways to compete with Amazon (AMZN) as a positive in the long run.

Walmart making progress toward e-commerce profitability, says Morgan Stanley
After an article in Recode suggested Walmart is losing $1B per year in its U.S. e-commerce division, Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that Walmart management has never quantified U.S. e-commerce losses, but has indicated losses will rise again in 2019. He estimates losses growing to about $1.7B in 2019 from about $1.4B in 2018. With that said, Gutman said he sees a path to e-commerce profitability that involves a more favorable product mix and fixed cost leverage, which are both areas where he believes the company is making progress. Gutman keeps an Overweight rating and $115 price target on Walmart shares.

Disney battle with Netflix in OTT to be 'expensive', says Needham
Needham analyst Laura Martin keeps her Hold rating on Disney (DIS), saying that while the valuation on the stock has gapped up based on investor expectations of it "winning" the OTT battle, she believes that it will take longer for the company to "displace" Netflix (NFLX) and beat the other competitors in the space. The analyst raises her FY20 revenue estimates to $83.4B from $76.6B to account for the contribution of the new Fox assets, but also lowers her EPS view by 15c to $6.39 to reflect the higher investments tied to Disney's OTT service, as the management will have to incur higher TV production costs due to digital platform competition coming from "Netflix, Hulu, Amazon (AMZN) Video, etc."

Amazon.com should be bought ahead of Q2 results, says Barclays
Amazon should report revenue acceleration in Q2 and guide below for operating income, Barclays analyst Ross Sandler tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst would add to share positions into the results. In periods of accelerating growth, little else has mattered for Amazon shares historically, contends Sandler. He believes the combination of core retail picking up slightly earlier in Q2 and the extra 3%-4% to run-rate from next day shipping should take Amazon's growth rates up from Q1. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $2,050 price target.

Cowen analyst John Blackledge maintained an Outperform rating and $2,500 price target on Amazon.com, telling investors in a research note that he expects the company's move to Prime 1-day delivery to drive higher conversion rates, leading to increasing unit growth in the second half of 2019 and into 2020. Blackledge, who raised his U.S. unit forecast to 12.6% y/y CAGR for 2019-2024 vs. ~9% prior, says he thinks Prime 1-day could drive an incremental $1B-$2B in revenue this year.

Amazon's free one-day delivery to drive significant revenue, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba reiterated a Buy rating and $2,380 price target on Amazon.com. In a research note to investors, the analyst says his firm analyzed the likely impacts on Amazon's top line growth following the introduction of free one-day delivery on over 10M items. Based on the analysis, Chukumba says he believes Amazon's move to free one-day delivery for Prime members will drive significant incremental revenue from three sources: incremental gross merchandise volume and the resulting revenue from additional consumers signing up for Prime memberships; incremental subscription fees from new Prime members; and incremental GMV and the resulting revenue from current Prime members buying more items.
