10:18 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney rises after CEO meeting prompts upgrade
Shares of J.C. Penney (JCP) are rising in morning trading after a Sterne Agee CRT analyst upgraded the retailer to Buy with a $13 price target following a meeting with the company's new chief executive officer. WHAT'S NEW: Sterne Agee CRT analyst Charles Grom upgraded J.C. Penney this morning to Buy from Neutral with a $13 price target after recently spending time with new CEO Marvin Ellison at the company's headquarters. Grom said he came away from the meeting "more confident" in the company's turnaround plan, adding that Ellison has the "right demeanor" and business sense to lead the company and "right the ship." Ellison took over as CEO of the retailer on August 1, replacing previous CEO Myron "Mike" Ullman. Sterne's Grom said that while the firm has previously been critical of the retailer's strategy, he believes the initiatives, led by Ellison, are "refreshing" and could boost the company's EBITDA. Grom thinks Ellison is the right person to help revive J.C. Penney and believes the company can surpass its long-term EBITDA target of $1.2B by 2017, saying that this goal "may prove to be a floor rather than a ceiling." Additionally, the analyst sees "multiple levers" to drive same-store sales higher. Despite his optimism in J.C. Penney's recovery story, the analyst notes that U.S. consumer spending is shifting away from traditional items in department stores toward move service-oriented products, traditional mall traffic trends remain "suppressed" and weather trends across the U.S. in August and September were not "ideal" for mall-based retailers. WHAT'S NOTABLE: J.C. Penney recently named John Tighe as executive vice president and chief merchant, effective October 1. Tighe, most recently senior vice president and senior general merchandise manager for the men's, children's, footwear, handbag and intimate apparel divisions, will succeed Elizabeth "Liz" Sweney, the company said. On August 31, Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell upgraded J.C. Penney to Buy from Hold and raised his price target on the stock to $12 from $10, calling the company a "self-help story." Trussell noted that the company has already improved its merchandise mix and is now moving toward better pricing and fewer markdowns. Trussell said that the company's target of mid-single digit same-store sales growth looks "achievable" and its brands and assortment "look right." OTHERS TO WATCH: Other department store operators include Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS) and Sears Holdings (SHLD). PRICE ACTION: J.C. Penney is up 1.5% to $9.57 in morning trading and is up nearly 50% year-to-date.
