    Shares of Kohl's (KSS +2.4%) run higher after BMO issues a note to clients identifying the retailer as a tempting buyout target. The firm cites the attractive valuation on Kohl's and its strong free cash flow in making its call.

    T2 Partners took new positions in Kohl's (KSS -0.1%) and J.C. Penney (JCP +1.3%), according to a SEC filing (13F). Though the stakes were on the small side, both retailers could use the shot of confidence.

    There's an investing lesson in here somewhere. Harris Interactive's 2013 Reputation Quotient survey shows Amazon (AMZN) moving past Apple as the country's reputation leader. Bank of America (BAC) retains a spot in the bottom 5 (along with HAL, GS, and AIG), but enjoyed the largest reputation rebound in 2012. Maybe of most interest are those dropping off the list of visible companies, including: UPS, KSS, and GIS.

    Shares of Kohl's (KSS) move up 2.8% premarket after the retailer obliterated the same-store sale estimates of analysts by recording a 13.3% gain during the month. The company says the sales boost was broad with all lines of business except footwear achieving double-digit comparable sales growth. Doubting Thomas alert: Some retail analysts are far from dazzled by the number as they wait for the other shoe to drop.

    Kohl's (KSS +0.3%) looks like an attractive buyout target due to its attractive brands and strong free cash flow, according to Edward Jones. The quick take: Shares trades at a lower valuation than peers with a model that isn't broken.

    The National Retail Federation forecasts 2013 retail sales will increase at a rate of 3.4%, lower than the 4.2% rise seen in 2012. Consumer attitudes will be influenced by higher payroll taxes and the ongoing fiscal cliff drama before improving in the second half of the year, according to the trade group. Retailers with strong online businesses should be able to ride out the moderate growth period adequately with online sales forecast to rise between 9% and 12% for the year.

    "It's hard to find anyone who would admit to owning Kohl's (KSS), aside from me," says Brian Rogers at the Barron's Roundtable. The company had a tough 2012, but Rogers isn't worried about seasoned management blowing a fashion cycle on occasion. In the meantime free cash flow allows a 2.8% yield (set to rise soon, says Rogers), and buybacks amounting to 25% of the float over the last 3 years.

    Department store malaise: Macquarie's Liz Dunn take a swipe at the prospect for department stores to beat sales estimates, saying the expiration of the payroll tax cut and shaky consumer confidence will hit the sector fairly hard. She favors global brands selling in hotter markets such as Ralph Lauren (RL +1.8%), Coach (COH +1.9%), and Fossil (FOSL +0.7%) over mall-based plays such as J.C. Penney (JCP -0.7%), Kohl's (KSS +0.5%), and Macy's (M -0.6%).

    A number of retail stocks aren't taking part of the broad market rally today with concerns over "paystub sticker shock" from consumers and anxiety over upcoming sales reports outweighing the buzz over the U.S. averting the fiscal cliff. Notable laggards: M -1.0%, JWN -0.3%, WMT +0.5%, KSS -1.2%, DDS -0.5%.

    Oppenheimer can't get knocked off its bullish stance on J.C. Penney (JCP), saying the increased promotional stance the retailer is taking will pay dividends this holiday season and down the road in 2013. Despite the optimism, the general view from retail analysts is that even if J.C. Penney stops the bleeding, it's still going to be hard to recapture the customers it lost to Macy's (M) and Kohl's (KSS).

    Tidbits from RetailSails latest mall walk: 1) Gap (GPS -1.4%) saw a tremendous boost from its latest round of promotions. The retailer has "limited" inventory liability to a milder winter and products look "trend right." 2) Aeropostale (ARO -3.7%) was a disappointment with too many basics and lack of fresh fashions. 3) A strong comeback at Kohl's (KSS -1.4%) this weekend is a good possibility after recent traffic checks turned positive.

    Citibank lowers its estimates for department stores, citing soft traffic trends and mixed holiday sales. Another point to consider is the firm's warning that consumers may have pulled many of their purchases forward with retailers launching the holiday shopping season earlier than ever. Citi profit cuts: JCP, JWN, KSS, M.
