JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss downgraded Nordstrom (NYSE: JWN) from Neutral to Underweight with a price target of $34.00 (from $39.00).

The analyst comments "We are downgrading JWN to Underweight and establishing a $34 Dec ’22 price target. With the current backdrop potentially “as good as it gets” for both JWN’s $100K+ core HH income customer (w/ mid-teens personal savings rate, debt service ratio at 40-yr lows, and US household wealth creation of +$12T in 2020) and on the pricing/promotional front (lean channel inventory/ industry AUR expansion) – JWN’s absolute and relative performance remains underwhelming with full price revenues ~900bps below dept store peers, Rack comps ~2,500bps below Off-Price peers, and mgmt forecasting full year operating margins ~200bps below 2019 (vs. dept store peers modeled +489bps > FY19 on average."
