National Vision price target lowered to $30 from $37 at Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo analyst Zachary Fadem lowered his price target for National Vision (EYE) to $30 from $37 giving near-term overhangs. The analyst also notes that sentiment is "increasingly poor," but margin improvement offers a chance at redemption. While investor sentiment around Walmart (WMT) has shifted from an opportunity to an overhang, Fadem believes shares now price a worst case scenario that he views unlikely near-term. He reiterates an Outperform rating on National Vision's stock.

Buy
National Vision initiated with a Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Kate McShane started National Vision with a Buy rating and $33 price target. The analyst sees the company as well positioned given the non-discretionary nature of eye exams and eyewear product replenishment.

Hold
National Vision price target raised to $30 from $26 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba raised his price target on National Vision to $30, saying his call with the former VP of Corporate Development for Essilor International about the optical retailing industry has given him more confidence about the company's long-term growth runway and value positioning. The analyst is keeping his Hold rating however, noting that at 45-times his expected earnings, the company's bullish fundamental outlook appears to be priced in.

Buy
National Vision upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba upgraded National Vision to Buy and raised his price target to $37 from $30 after its Q2 results. The analyst is positive on the company's "differentiated concept" with comp growth drivers that include store maturation, increased marketing, and increasing vision insurance program participation, along with the "favorable" dynamics in the specialty optical retail industry. Chukumba adds that National Vision should be able to continue expanding store base square footage for the next several years.

Walmart health clinic plans a 'logical next step,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman noted that CNBC reported late last week that Walmart is opening a health clinic in Georgia later this month, marking its fourth such clinic. He thinks it makes sense for Walmart, which he notes is the third-largest U.S. pharmacy provider, to play a bigger role in healthcare and sees this is a logical next step given what he views as synergies between retail and healthcare. Sam Walton talked about lowering healthcare costs for consumers as long as 30 years ago, noted Gutman, who thinks standalone health clinics can have positive implications for Walmart's retail business but greater potential consequences for better access to healthcare and lower costs for consumers. He maintains an Overweight rating on Walmart shares.

Overweight
Walmart price target raised to $125 from $115 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman said PhonePe wasn't on investors' radar when Walmart took a majority stake in Flipkart last year, but now the payments processor is coming into focus. Flipkart's PhonePe could be an Indian "Super App" worth from $7B to as much as $20B in a bull case, estimated Gutman, who now believes a sum-of-the-parts analysis is the best way to value Walmart's "disparate segments." He increased his price target on Walmart shares to $125 from $115 and raised his Bull Case valuation on the stock to $165 from $150. Gutman keeps an Overweight rating on Walmart.

Walmart price target raised to $135 from $129 at Citi
Citi analyst Gregory Badishkanian raised his price target for Walmart (WMT) to $135 from $129 after taking over coverage of the name. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares. An aggressive omni-channel strategy, low-prices, grocery offerings, and productivity initiatives should drive long-term sales growth and margin upside, Badishkanian tells investors in a research note. The analyst also took over coverage of BJ's Wholesale (BJ) with an unchanged Buy rating and $32 price target, as well as Costco Wholesale (COST) with an unchanged Neutral rating and price target of $303, up from $281.

Walmart price target raised to $130 from $120 at Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict raised his price target on Walmart to $130 from $120 following meetings with management. The meetings were upbeat as efforts to transform its core retail capabilities and culture are gaining traction with consumers which is fueling an evolving market perception of the company. Benedict reiterated his Outperform rating on Walmart shares.
