Hormel may underperform while navigating ASF overhang, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Ben Bienvenu said Hormel Foods is currently contending with volume erosion as price increases were taken to offset protein inflation that hasn't happened yet. Hormel risks losing more volume share if it doesn't walk back price increases, but if it does cut prices it may have a harder time raising them when inflation requires, said the analyst, who is interested to hear management's approach to navigating African Swine Flu on the company's earnings call. Bienvenu, who thinks the current operating environment will continue to lead to relative underperformance in Hormel shares, reiterated an Equal Weight rating and $37 price target on the stock ahead of the company's Q3 earnings report.

Tyson plant-based launch not big threat to Beyond Meat, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Robert Moskow says this morning's launch of plant-based chicken nuggets and patties and hybrid beef-plant burgers and sausages supports his positive view on Tyson Foods (TSN). Perdue and Hormel Foods (HRL) have also signaled similar intentions to pursue hybrid meats, Moskow tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, does not view Tyson's hybrid burgers as a major threat to Beyond Meat (BYND). Beyond's burger products are "more revolutionary and broader" in terms of potential consumer appeal, contends Moskow. Although competing hybrid burgers offer less saturated fat than the 100% plant-based products from Beyond and Impossible, "they simply don't taste as good in our experience," writes the analyst. Shares of Beyond Meat are down $1.04 to $140.93 in early trading while Tyson Foods is up $1.92 to $83.82.

DOJ intervening in poultry case not entirely surprising, says Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Jeremy Scott said it isn't entirely surprising to see the DOJ intervene in the Maplevale civil case against chicken producers given the DOJ's interest in the case previously became apparent in Tyson's (TSN) 10-Q filling in May. Scott said the investigation launch does not necessarily suggest that there is new corroborating evidence, though it does raise the stakes for company legal teams and builds on an already distracting and costly process in the courts that will likely take two years or more to reach a conclusion. Other protein stocks include Hormel (HRL), Pilgrim's Pride (PPC) and Sanderson Farms (SAFM).

BJ's Wholesale executing strategy in a favorable environment, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine kept her Buy rating and $35 price target on BJ's Wholesale after her latest round of store checks. The analyst believes that the company is executing well on its strategies amid a favorable operating environment for warehouse clubs, but still has an opportunity to improve its value proposition and its range of product categories. Champine is modeling 1.5% comps growth for Q2 against a tough 5% comparison in the corresponding quarter last year.

Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell assumed coverage of BJ's Wholesale with a Buy rating and $29 price target, down from his firm's prior target of $29. The analyst continues to see a shift in dollar share with the rise of e-commerce, fresh, and limited assortment stores, in addition to wholesale clubs and supercenters, at the expense of independents and other regional grocers.

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.

Dick's Sporting making progress on sales, margins, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict reiterates a Neutral rating and a $36 price target on Dick's Sporting, but acknowledges that the risk/reward is improving. The analyst notes that Q1 EPS beat expectations on stronger sales/gross margin, and prospects for continued sequential improvement "appear good." While Benedict believes some top-line conservatism appears at play, he sees tariffs remaining "a wildcard."

Dick's Sporting sold off on tariff commentary on call, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Baker attributes the post-earnings weakness yesterday in shares of Dick's Sporting Goods to commentary on the earnings call that management has not contemplated the recent increase from 10% to 25% tariffs in their updated guidance. However, this is "somewhat misleading" as the company did implicitly lower its earnings outlook by 4c, when adjusting out the impact of the increased share repurchase, Baker tells investors in a research note. He thinks Dick's updated guidance "embeds a level of conservatism simply due to the tariff uncertainty." The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $42 from $45 and keeps a Buy rating on Dick's Sporting.

G-III, Yeti have higher than average risk from List 4 tariffs, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Jim Duffy said the direct, unmitigated impact of a proposed 10% tariff on "List 4" goods imported from China is contained to a single digit percentage headwind to calendar 2020 earnings for most of the 18 Sports and Lifestyle Brands companies he covers, though he identified G-III Apparel (GIII), Yeti (YETI) and potentially Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) as having higher than group average exposure to the risk. He awaits more tariff details before adjusting estimates, but said he is constructive on higher-end and globally diversified brands, such as Lululemon (LULU), Columbia Sportswear (COLM), Nike (NKE), Under Armour (UAA) and VF Corp. (VFC).
