Gordon Haskett upgrades Walmart, calls stock 'a must own' in current environment

Gordon Haskett analyst Chuck Grom said that Walmart is "perceived to be a good port when the waters get choppy," but given the inflection in EBIT and EPS growth from compression to acceleration, he now views the stock as "a must own name." Given his increased conviction following the company's second quarter results, Grom upgraded Walmart to Buy from Accumulate and raised his price target on the stock to $125 from $115. He sees Walmart's acceleration in U.S. same-store sales growth as likely an outlier, rather than the norm in retail, and thinks some of its gross margin shortfall in the quarter was transitory and "self-inflected" due to a greater degree of price actions, Grom noted.

Baird comfortable with Walmart expectations ahead of Q2 results
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said he remains comfortable with Q2 Walmart expectations ahead of its report on Thursday. The analyst believes comp trends will remain solid and although he expects pressure on margins from Flipkart, he sees the company continuing to manage and drive SG&A efficiencies. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating and $115 price target on Walmart shares.

Walmart Q2 results 'impressive' given tough comparison, says BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Robert Ohmes noted that Walmart U.S. faced its toughest comparison of FY20 in Q2 given that U.S. same-store sales grew 4.5% in the same quarter of last year. Given that tough comparison, he views the U.S. same-store sales growth of 2.8% "impressive," Ohmes stated in a post-earnings research note. Walmart's raised full-year adjusted EPS guidance implies $4.83-$4.85, versus the consensus estimate of $4.84, said Ohmes. He reiterated a Buy rating on Walmart shares with a $120 price target, stating that he expects U.S. momentum to continue, fueled by the company investing in its stores, people and "omni-channel transformation."

Baird boosts Walmart price target to $120 from $115 after 'solid' Q2
Baird analyst Peter Benedict raised his price target for Walmart to $120 from $115 saying the company's "solid" Q2 results reinforced his positive thesis. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The Q2 results were encouraging, with "solid" U.S. sales and strong expense management fueling a 4% earnings beat, Benedict tells investors in a research note. He believes Walmart's business is "strong" and that its "sophisticated" omni-channel strategy is becoming increasingly difficult to match. As such, the analyst thinks Walmart shares can maintain their "premium valuation metrics."
