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."

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.

Walmart price target raised to $125 from $115 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Kelly Bania raised her price target on Walmart to $125 and kept her Outperform rating, after its "strong" Q2 results, saying the company continues to take market share in the grocery store space while making the right investments in e-commerce to sustain earnings growth in the future. The analyst notes that despite the weather headwinds in seasonal categories, Walmart's EBIT remained on "solid trajectory" and its e-commerce margins expanded for the second consecutive quarter. Bania further cites Walmart "planting the seeds" for future growth with grocery delivery and innovations in healthcare.
