Guggenheim Thinks Kohl’s Corp’s Stock is Going to Recover

Guggenheim analyst Robert Drbul maintained a Buy rating on Kohl’s Corp (KSSResearch Report) today and set a price target of $70. The company’s shares opened today at $55.27, close to its 52-week low of $54.15.

Drbul noted:

“We are re-calibrating our model to incorporate 1Q, KSS’ new partnership with AMZN, and our expectations for comps to remain pressured in 2Q. We remain BUY-rated but lower our PT to $70 from $80. We would use today’s weakness (-11% vs. S&P500 +1%) as an incremental opportunity to accumulate shares given our belief that management has the playbook to drive healthy, long-term growth.”
