In a report published Friday, Citigroup reiterated its Buy rating on Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST), but lowered its price target from $85.00 to $70.00.

Growth drivers include ROST's ability to double its store base, a special ability to sell inventory packed away, store level planning/allocation/inventory management, and US pure play exposure. Competitive moats include a 450-person buying organization, and #2 off-price share after TJX.”
