UBS analyst, Michael Lasser, reiterated his Neutral rating on shares of Buy Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) heading into the 3Q report. The analyst thinks that this quarter, "the setup for BBY’s shares is vastly different than last period".
The stock has rallied, expectations have moved up, and the industry data has improved. We model a 1.0% domestic comp, in-line with cons. & exceeding the -2.1% CE retail sales decline for the first 2 months of the Q. We think the gap between BBY's comp & NPD CE growth remained wide. Though, the co. will lap tougher multi-year gains in 3Q relative to 2Q. This could that mean its outperformance of the industry starts to slow.
SSS should be supported by the iPhone 7 launch & unit growth of 4K TVs (CE faces easier compares in 2H) No change to the price target of $38 but the analyst stated that he thinks the shares are fully valued.
Shares of Best Buy closed at $39.98 yesterday.
