Ross Stores price target raised to $113 from $107 at Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell raised his price target on Ross Stores to $113 and kept his Buy rating after its Q2 earnings beat, saying that the quarter's 3% comps growth was also better than his expected 2% increase. The analyst notes that the stronger comp came in spite of the ongoing challenges in ladies' apparel business, while the company also outperformed Marmaxx for the first time since Q4 of 2017 and registered a 300bps sequential acceleration on a two-year stack basis. Trussell further states that Ross Stores' Q3 outlook may be conservative since it assumes the management's usual 1%-2% SSS increase but faces "one of the easiest comparisons of the year".

Goldman downgrades Nordstrom to Sell, cuts price target to $30 from $37
Goldman Sachs analyst Alexandra Walvis downgraded Nordstrom (JWN) to Sell from Neutral and lowered her price target for the shares to $30 from $37. The analyst is taking a "conservative stance" on the retail sector. The headwinds in Q2 have proven persistent, says the analyst, who sees risk that a second half of the year inflection in earnings growth may not materialize for many companies. Walvis recommends a selective approach in Apparel and prefers stocks with "clear" second half catalysts or strategic actions to drive momentum. She reiterates Buy ratings on both Under Armour (UAA) and Tapestry (TPR) and downgraded both Nordstrom and Ross Stores (ROST) to Sell. She believes Nordstrom's ongoing "comp headwinds" in full line and off price stores are compounded by its ongoing strategic investments and the opening of the company's flagship in New York City.

Goldman downgrades Ross Stores to Sell, cuts price target to $91 from $102
Goldman Sachs analyst Alexandra Walvis downgraded Ross Stores (ROST) to Sell from Neutral and lowered her price target for the shares to $91 from $102. The analyst is taking a "conservative stance" on the retail sector. The headwinds in Q2 have proven persistent, says the analyst, who sees risk that a second half of the year inflection in earnings growth may not materialize for many companies. Walvis recommends a selective approach in Apparel and prefers stocks with "clear" second half catalysts or strategic actions to drive momentum. She reiterates Buy ratings on both Under Armour (UAA) and Tapestry (TPR) and downgraded both Nordstrom (JWN) and Ross Stores to Sell. She believes the recent rally in Ross shares is overdone given the risks that recent execution challenges persist. Further, Walvis forecasts limited upside from the company's strategic initiatives.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. FactSet (FDS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst George Tong saying he believes FactSet faces "secular challenges" in the financial services end-market due to the implementation of MiFID II and the ongoing shift from active to passive asset management. 2. Travelers (TRV) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker saying the commercial Property & Casualty sector is "largely overvalued" due to an intra-sector exodus from more rate-sensitive financials into P&C insurance stocks. 3. Sempra Energy (SRE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith citing share outperformance and moderating expectations on expedited CA legislation by the July 12 deadline combined with a potential credit downgrade. 4. W. R. Berkley (WRB) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker saying investors are mistaking the appreciation in Property and Casualty insurance stocks as the "fruit of renewal rate pricing increases in the P&C market." 5. Ross Stores (ROST) and Nordstrom (JWN) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

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.
