Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Big Lots (NYSE: BIG), PT $42.

Barclays analyst says, "We are increasing our 4Q10 EPS estimate to $1.40 from $1.38 based on 4Q sales coming in slightly higher than we had forecast. Our new estimate is within the range of guidance of $1.36-$1.42 and is $0.02 above consensus."

"We believe the longer term outlook for BIG remains healthy but we see limited upside potential for the stock at current levels, even in an acquisition scenario. And absent a transaction, we see significant potential downside."
