Credit Suisse's Seth Sigman and Kieran McGrath are out a bit more cautious on the auto parts sector Monday, following the disappointing quarter from O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY). The analysts write that the O'Reilly results weren't just a fluke for the industry, as they were validated by more retail data on Friday that confirmed a weaker June for auto parts retailers. For AutoZone, they cut their full year EPS to $43.80, down from from $44.19, (vs. consensus of $44.05), and lowered their price target to $583 (from $658): The data discussed below covers the first seven weeks of the 16 week FQ4 and points to a comp in the 0% to 1.2% range (based on recent spread).
