Deutsche Bank upgraded Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ: COST) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $107.00.

Deutsche analyst said, "The combination of (1) healthy SSS trends (led by traffic); (2) multiple EBIT margin drivers, including the cycling of LY’s offensive price investments; (3) an acceleration in club growth; & (4) multiple layers of EPS cushion (Mexico/debt paydown/MFI/buybacks)– give us more confidence that Costco can play offense and defense at the same time – a unique set-up in retail today."
