Equities Research Analysts’ updated eps estimates for Wednesday, September 11th:

Aimmune Therapeutics (NASDAQ:AIMT) had its hold rating reaffirmed by analysts at Stifel Nicolaus. The analysts wrote, “We continue to expect the focus of the Adcom to be on safety – risk of anaphylaxis and use of epinephrine – which is not new” news and we think also around the long-term use/safety of AR101 in patients (i.e. EoE). We think this should provide some relief for shares today as the investors’ worst case” scenario in terms of the panel may be off the table as the agency struck a relatively positive tone in the docs, in our view. With the stock continuing to move up ahead of the Adcom, we think the risk/reward at these levels is less favorable once Palforzia is approved given the commercial/logistical challenges we feel lay ahead, which is core to our thesis, and the Adcom isn’t completely devoid of risk.””

Following a tentative deal to avoid a strike in Southern California, Kroger appears to have dodged a major bullet within the past few days. However, the resolution of that contract comes as Kroger is still dealing with ongoing labor issues and the threat of a strike at Southwest Washington. VALUATION – Our price target of $26 PT is unchanged reflects a forward PE multiple of 13x our FY19 EPS estimate which is line with Kroger’s historical average. A target EV/EBITDA level of 6.7x is also in line with historical levels and with Ahold/Delhaize. RISKS – If Kroger needs to respond to incremental competitive threats, industry-wide deflationary (or inflationary) pressures, or if there is a significant contraction in the employment cycle, Kroger’s valuation metrics could be at risk.””
