Costco's operating earnings outpeformed on strong gas margin, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Laura Champine keeps her Buy rating and $330 price target on Costco after its Q4 results, noting that excluding the 22c pre-tax reserve to SG&A item, the company's operating earnings of $2.69 topped consensus. The analyst maintains that tariff-related inflation will drive retail customers to Costco for more of their purchases, forecasting a SSS increase in Q1 to rise to 6.7% from 5.1% in Q4. Champine also contends that the company's growth and earnings stability warrant a higher multiple that the current 31-times her expected FY20 earnings 17-times enterprise value to expected EBITDA.

Costco EPS beat consensus when tax assessment excluded, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan noted that Costco's Q4 EPS of $2.69, excluding the 22c impact related to a product tax assessment, topped the consensus forecast of $2.54. Core merchandise gross margin increased for a third consecutive quarter while membership renewal rates increased sequentially both in U.S./Canada and worldwide, said Astrachan, who calls the results "solid." He raised his FY20 and FY21 EPS estimates by about 2% following the company's reports and keeps a Buy rating on Costco shares with an unchanged price target of $310.

Costco price target raised to $329 from $321 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scot Ciccarelli raised his price target on Costco to $329 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q4 results, saying that earnings beat expectations when excluding the tax assessment, EBIT grew 10%, and sales/traffic growth yielded U.S. comps growth of 5.2% and total comps growth of 5.1% - which are "some of the strongest" in retail. The analyst maintains that Costco stock offers investors "extreme scarcity value" thanks to its "unique" merchandising and "extreme" consumer value model.
