11:12 EDTKORSCiti favors lululemon in retailing, says sell Penny and Kors
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez rolled out coverage of 20 companies in the Specialty Retailing and Department Stores space, recommending to investors that they sell J.C. Penney (JCP) and Michael Kors (KORS) shares and buy stock in lululemon (LULU). SELL J.C. PENNEY: Commenting on the "stormy sector" in general terms, Lejuez said he believes challenges to the retail industry are here to stay, but that there are still stand-outs on both the positive and negative side. Regarding J.C. Penney specifically, Lejuez told investors that the company's management is in a "tough spot," as they need to recover from a prior failed strategy but don't have the needed cash flow to invest and win back customers. The analyst think Penney will see some improvement in the top line, but that any increases in operating cash flow as a result of sales and margin improvement will be matched by increased capital expenditures, meaning that free cash flow will be "elusive for the foreseeable future. Lejuez started shares of J.C. Penney with a Sell rating and $7 price target. SELL KORS: Among the 20 stocks he started coverage on in the space, Michael Kors was the only other Sell rating the analyst issued. Lejuez believes the company has overdistributed its brand and though U.S. comparable sales have just started to decline he thinks this decline will last for the "foreseeable future." Lejuez, who contends that Europe and wholesale may be next to deteriorate, set a $38 price target on the stock. BUY LULULEMON: Among the ten Buy rating issued this morning, Lejuez said his most preferred stock in the bunch is yoga apparel maker lululemon. The analyst thinks the "athleisure" retailer has moved beyond its prior product and public relations missteps and that its international opportunities will provide the next leg of growth for the company. The analyst, who expects double-digit sales growth for the next several years for lululemon, set a $69 price target on its shares. His other Buy-rated names, in order of preference, include TJX (TJX), Tiffany (TIF), Urban Outfitters (URBN) and Ross Stores (ROST). PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, J.C. Penney fell 2.7% to $9.52, Michael Kors slipped 0.3% to $43.24 and lululemon shares rose 2.2% to $52.86.
