    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.

    Jefferies reiterates its Buy rating on Kohl's (KSS) despite the retailer's disappointing November sales report. Yesterday's double-digit drop in share price for Kohl's was its worst day on the market since 1992 which Jefferies finds a bit overdone.

    Deloitte retail analyst Alison Paul doesn't think the Hurricane Sandy excuse being trotted out by major retailers is too far off base. After accounting for a significant pre-storm slowdown and major power outages in the Northeast, she thinks the numbers as a whole are actually quite good. In that same vein, other analysts point to layaway sales and online sales yet to ship as two categories that will help December compensate for the light November.

    Kohl's (KSS) underwhelms with its sales report for November, blaming the 5.6% dip on e-commerce sales that won't be realized until December and the effect of Hurricane Sandy. Traders seem to sense something bigger might be afoot, KSS -9.2% premarket.

    Black Friday shopping will be the headline story in retail for the day, but the underlying plot will be the effect online channels have on the total sales hauls. Though various trade groups tag Black Friday weekend shopping to see a 3% to 4% rise this year, online shopping is expected to increase by closer to 15% heading into Cyber Monday. Online has also been where the winners and losers in the sector have been separated with major online forces such as Macy's (M) and Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) roaring to huge gains - while the likes of J.C. Penney (JCP) and Big Lots (BIG) limp along.
