Citi has a lot to say about retail today (previous: JCP) with analyst Deborah Weinswig tipping off that early checks show July same-store sales are weak for major retailers and margin pressure could be in store as inventories rise. Rating revisions: Target (TGT -0.8%) to Neutral from Buy; Macy's (M +0.2%) price target clipped by a buck to $37 and EPS estimates dropped; Kohl's (KSS +2.2%) sales and earnings estimates dropped.

    That makes sense. Have a Buy rating on JCP which is in turmoil with no proof it can turn sales around and cut companies that are successful. Sorry, this is why most analysts are a joke.

    apparently someone thinks CITI's cut of KSS is a joke - stock up 3.5% today, yet I don't see any other significant "news" suggesting as to why. A big block purchase, perhaps? A hedge fund manager mentioned them? We'll see the 'news' published probably tomorrow, long after the INSIDER information has already been utilized by a few pp today, and they've taken their profits and the KSS "rally" is over.
