Cowen reiterated a Market Perform rating and $46.00 price target on Kohl's Corp. (NYSE: KSS) after meeting with management. Cowen says that KSS is increasingly focused on using data to plan inventories, reaching out to customers with added personalization, and seeking to obtain a one-customer view across all platforms. Expected changes ahead may yield a more stable profile of comps and margins. However, weather, election, and work underway in the Women’s assortment do remain relevant risk factors to comp store sales traffic.

Analyst Oliver Chen commented, "KSS is making strides managing inventories tighter, localizing assortments, and investing in active/wellness. Reduction of lead times, new spring Under Armour product, and refocus at existing brands will increase fashion appeal. Elevation in omnichannel convenience and prudent engagement in store closures should contribute to growth and profitability."
