Walmart partnership could serve as driver for Advance Auto Parts, says Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst Seth Sigman notes that Advance Auto (AAP) has launched what appears to be the initial phases of its partnership with Walmart (WMT), adding about 5,000 SKUs to the Walmart website. The analyst ultimately believes that, if done right, this could serve as an incremental driver for Advance Auto Parts, benefiting from Walmart's growing online traffic and product offering. That said, more important for the stock in short term will be improving comps after the slow start and weather impact in Q2, along with instilling confidence in the margin outlook, he contends. Sigman has an Outperform rating and $195 price target on Advance Auto Parts' shares.

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.

Outperform
Advance Auto Parts price target lowered to $178 from $194 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli lowered his price target on Advance Auto Parts to $178 and also reduced his Q1 EPS view by 4c to $2.32 to reflect the adverse headwinds in the quarter, even though he expects the demand to shift to Q2/Q3 and maintains his FY19 projections. The analyst also models a lower forward earnings multiple of 22-times vs. 24-times prior to reflect the recent contractions across the market, but also keeps his Outperform rating, saying Advance Auto Parts management has the "potential to significantly enhance performance, including better comp growth and 500+ bps of EBIT margin expansion."

Neutral
O'Reilly Automotive downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Northcoast
Northcoast analyst Seth Woolf downgraded O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) to Neutral from Buy, stating that he is not as constructive on the space as he had been after recent channel checks that suggest demand trends slowed in May. He added that, "more importantly," his miles driven index shows total miles driven trends have "continued to stagnate" after being weak in Q1. Automotive aftermarket retailers are in an extremely competitive environment, said Woolf, who keeps Neutral ratings on O'Reilly peers AutoZone (AZO) and Advance Auto Parts (AAP).

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.

PetMed CEO amendment hints at exploration of alternatives, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich noted that PetMed Express (PETS) filed an 8K after the close on Friday to disclose that it amended CEO Mendo Akdag's employment agreement to add the language "for Good Reason" to the "Change in Control" section. He reads this change as a hint that an exploration of strategic alternatives could be upcoming, though he doesn't think there is anything imminent in the works. The analyst, who suspects there is further downside to Street estimates for PetMed given increased competition from Chewy (CHWY), Walmart (WMT), Petco and other online retailers, keeps a Sell rating on PetMed shares.
