Deutsche Bank maintains a 'Buy' on Macy's (NYSE: M) price target of $45.00.

Analyst, Charles Grom, said, "The set-up into today's 1Q print was unfavorable, in our view. Even if Macy's had a good quality quarter and raised its FY12 EPS view to the Street, the stock may have still sold off as expectations given its ~29% move up YTD were extremely high. Layer in an arguably crowded long with (1) a low quality print and (2) no guidance raise - we're not surprised to see the stock sell off a bit here at the open. That said, sub $39, we see a good risk/reward with the stock trading at just 9.3x and considerable EPS upside in our model."
