Macy's price target lowered to $23 from $28 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell lowered his price target for Macy's to $23 from $28 citing yesterday's "big miss." While the Q2 comp was in line with expectations, earnings was well below driven by worse than feared margin pressure, Trussell tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Hold rating on Macy's shares.

JPMorgan downgrades Macy's to Underweight after earnings miss, guidance cut
As previously reported, JPMorgan downgraded Macy's to Underweight from Neutral, with analyst Matthew Boss reducing both his FY20 and FY21 EPS estimates after the company's Q2 earnings miss and FY19 guidance cut. The analyst, who noted that Macy's reported its third consecutive quarterly decline in gross profit dollars, also pointed out that management spoke about a "very competitive" overall retail landscape. Boss cut his price target on Macy's shares to $16 from $22.

Kohl's price target lowered to $48 from $58 at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Jen Redding lowered her price target for Kohl's (KSS) to $48 from $58 as she is cautious on shares into Q2 EPS. Her Search model forecasts directional downside to consensus estimates - a continuation of the lackluster performance posted in Q1 with soft home sales and slow comps. Despite Kohl's' lead in search interest trends among peers, department stores meaningfully trailed Off-Price and Specialty Retail, as demonstrated by disappointing Q2 results from Macy's (M), Redding contends. Although her data shows improving monthly comp trends for the quarter, the analyst sees some risk that improvement in business trends in June and July may not be enough to offset weakness in May, given unfavorable weather impact on Apparel. She reiterates a Neutral rating on Kohl's shares.

Apache price target raised to $36 from $30 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Phillip Jungwirth raised his price target on Apache to $36 after traveling with its management this week, saying investor sentiment appears to have improved amid "Permian oil outperformance, Suriname opportunity, North Sea growth, and messaging around improving Alpine High margins." The analyst notes that the adjustment made to his model have taken his FY19 EPS outlook to $8.72 from $8.52 and his FY20 outlook to $9.02 from $8.80, even though he is keeping his Market Perform rating to reflect the company's "lower relative debt adjusted production growth."

Apache 2018 results, capital program 'significant positives', says MUFG
MUFG analyst Michael McAllister kept his Overweight rating and $47 price target on Apache, saying its 2018 results and commitment to return 50% of its free cash flow to shareholders should be considered "significant positives" to the investment narrative. The analyst adds that the company's 2019 capital outflows of $2.8B are "amply covered" by his cash flow forecast of $3.78B. With 40M share repurchase program "recast by the board", McAllister sees buybacks as the "first home" for Apache's free cash flows and believes that its capital program is "set up appropriately for the current price regime".

BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Erika Najarian downgraded Comerica two notches, to Underperform from Buy, citing the cloudier visibility on forward EPS given the more challenging backdrop. However, she noted that this rating change was not a call on the quarter but more about the environment for banks moving forward. Najarian also downgraded Regions Financial (RF) to Neutral from Buy, citing similar concerns.

Regions Financial upgraded to Outperform at Wedbush
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Peter Winter upgraded Regions Financial to Outperform from Neutral and raised his price target on the shares to $17 from $15. The analyst believes the company is better positioned than most of its peers to handle a lower rate environment given actions to reduce its asset sensitivity. Further, he argues that Regions Financial is still in the early stages of reaping the benefits from its "Simplify & Grow" initiatives, and sees it as better positioned for the next downturn, with an attractive valuation.
