Kohl's Q2 comps look to be below consensus, says Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Rusty Wilson said his checks indicate that Kohl's sales seemed to improve directionally to finish the quarter, but comparable sales look to be below consensus expectations due to a soft May. He is forecasting Q2 comps down 2.5%, adding that feedback he received was "soft/mixed" on the start to back-to-school sales in late July. Wilson has a Neutral rating on Kohl's shares.

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.

Nike expectations 'more muted' this quarter than last, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Lauren Cassel said she believes investor sentiment ahead of Nike's (NKE) upcoming earnings report is "more muted" than it was leading up to last quarter's report and she "leans positively" given her view that concerns about North American revenue growth, as well as China fears, are overdone. The analyst, who thinks recent commentary from Kohl's (KSS) and Foot Locker (FL) has made investors more nervous about Nike's growth in North America, keeps an Overweight rating on Nike and calls it her top pick.

Overstock tech stack would be valuable to strategic buyers, says DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Tom Forte reiterated his Buy rating and $48 price target on shares of Overstock.com (OSTK) following the company's announcement regarding its awards for its technology, stating that he sees the awards as consistent with a prior Chain Store Age study that found its website had among the fastest response times on Black Friday. 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.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Northland with analyst Gus Richard saying the negative AMD (AMD) server launch catalyst has now passed and he thinks a value stock such as Intel has odds of outperforming higher multiple stocks during selloffs. 2. TJX (TJX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Laura Champine saying her model changes are driven by the continued market share gains at the expense of the department and specialty stores. 3. Brinker (EAT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Will Slabaugh saying he believes the risk/reward has become "too attractive to ignore." 4. PetMed Express (PETS) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Craig-Hallum with analyst Kevin Ellich citing his view that minimum advertised pricing should set a pricing floor for key prescription medicines that the company sells. 5. Kratos Defense (KTOS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Noah Poponak saying the company's "multi-year, multi-program, strong long-term growth story is intact and approaching," while the stock has recently pulled back.

TJX upgraded to Buy at Loop Capital on off-price momentum
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine upgraded TJX (TJX) to Buy and raised her price target to $60 from $50 as part of her broader "Deep Dive" research note into off-price retailers, saying her model changes are driven by the continued market share gains at the expense of the department and specialty stores. The analyst also raised her price target by $5 on Buy-rated Burlington Stores (BURL) and Ross Stores (ROST) to $200 and $120 respectively, citing her recent round of store checks at all 3 companies that showed "improving brand availability, attractive assortments, and healthy traffic trends." Champine believes that these chains can benefit from market dislocations as retailers increasingly worry about the impact of tariffs impacting product costs.

Medtronic price target raised to $111 from $100 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Pito Chickering raised his price target for Medtronic to $111 from $100 and maintained a Buy rating ahead of next Tuesday's results. Based on the firm's latest data along with peers' second quarter results and commentary, Chickering tempered revenue estimates for Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure and, very slightly, also Spine/RTG. The analyst now models consolidated constant currency revenue growth of +1.9% for Q1 and +3.9% for FY20, both slightly below respective guidance of 2%-2.5% and ~4%.

RBC Capital analyst Brandon Henry raised his price target on Medtronic to $110 and kept his Outperform rating ahead of its Q1 earnings, saying he expects the company to "at least" achieve the high end of its organic revenue growth guidance range. The analyst sees upside in his model to Medtronic's TAVR and Neurovascular segments, which could add an incremental 20-30bps to his organic revenue growth forecast combined. Henry further cites the company's "robust" product pipeline and believes that the management's forecast of at least 4% organic growth through FY22 is achievable.

The analyst said Q1 remains challenging but its headwinds and comp setup should be well known. Following Q1, Medtronic should see sequential acceleration throughout 2020 and 2021. Jennings reiterated his Outperform rating on Medtronic shares.

Piper says FDA update on paclitaxel-coated devices 'likely keeps the status quo'
After the FDA issued an update on its analysis of a late mortality signal in patients treated for peripheral artery disease in the femoropopliteal artery with paclitaxel-coated balloons and paclitaxel-eluting stents, Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien said the FDA's conclusion "likely keeps the status quo as far as usage in 2019." However, he still sees a significant patency benefit with these devices and expects further clinical data to resolve doctor's concerns in the longer-term, O'Brien stated. Makers of paclitaxel-coated devices include Boston Scientific (BSX) and Medtronic (MDT).

Home Depot price target raised to $230 ahead of earnings at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Baugh lowered his comp and EPS estimates slightly for Home Depot ahead of its report of second quarter results on August 20, citing adverse weather, delayed recovery in housing activity, commodity lumber deflation and weak home improvement spending. However, Home Depot shares are essentially at his previous price target of $210 and "faced with the question of changing a rating versus increasing the target price," he decided on raising his price target to $230 and keeps a Buy rating on the stock as Home Depot. The stock provides a safe dividend and he feels investors looking for a retail name will want to invest in Home Depot based on its management team, market leadership position and U.S. focused sales, Baugh stated. His Q2 comp growth estimate is now 20 basis points lower for Home Depot at 2.8%, but his 2.0% comp growth estimate for Lowe's is unchanged, Baugh noted.

Home Depot price target raised to $230 from $215 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Zachary Fadem raised his price target for Home Depot to $230 from $215 ahead of quarterly results. The analyst views Q2 challenges as well documented and largely transitory. While tariffs are a wildcard, Fadem sees limited 2019 exposure to List 4, and views the prospects for second half of the year trend improvement as the more incremental driver on earnings day. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Home Depot price target raised to $195 from $185 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine raised her price target on Home Depot to $195 but her her Hold rating after her call with its management yesterday. The analyst says the discussions suggest that the demand outlook for home improvement remains mixed, with downside risks to the company's top-line guidance from lumber deflation in FY19 and some upside in remodeling activity in the second half and beyond from lower interest rates. Champine adds that lower mortgage rates have typically stimulated home improvement demand, and expectations of a more accommodative Fed warrant expectations of a slightly higher top-line for FY20 to 117.53B from her $117.40B prior view.

Sonoco (SON) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Mark Wilde saying the the stock has run up 21% year-to-date and now trades at about 10.5-times his expected FY19 EBITDA and at 6.1% free cash flow yield, both of which are at the high end of their historical valuation ranges. 3. Parker-Hannifin (PH) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Joseph Ritchie saying he shuffled his ratings in the Americas Multi-Industry ahead of the Q2 earnings season. He sees a "rocky road ahead." 4. FactSet (FDS) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst saying the company's "decelerating" earnings growth brings risk to its "full" valuation. 5. Kennametal (KMT) double downgraded to Sell from Buy at Goldman Sachs. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
