Children's Place downgraded to Neutral at Wedbush, price target slashed to $60 » 09:1612/1212/12/19
Wedbush analyst Jen…
Wedbush analyst Jen Redding downgraded Children's Place to Neutral from Outperform with a price target of $60, down from $130. In a research note to investors, Redding says that while she sees Children's Place as a "strong" value story, she has less visibility into the company's margin turnaround given that the mix between e-commerce and brick & mortar stores has turned out to be a more material drag on gross margin than we originally anticipated. Although stable merchandise margins demonstrated in Q3 ndicate that the promotional atmosphere is heightened but controlled, Redding says she now sees the structural factors driving e-commerce to a higher percentage of sales as enough to depress gross margin and keep shares grounded in the near-term.

DA Davidson analyst John…
DA Davidson analyst John Morris lowered his price target on Children's Place to $80 after its Q3 results and a cut in its FY19 guidance amid "heavy promotional pressure", which the management believes to be contained to Q4. The analyst still keeps his Buy rating and believes that the headwinds will turn into tailwinds in 2020 amid anniversarying of industry consolidation and as the fulfillment/personalization investments begin to wane. Morris further anticipates revenue contribution starting in the Spring from the re-launch of Gymboree.
