NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Before Tuesday's market open, Costco Wholesale's (COST) - Get Report price target was lowered to $195 from $196 at Deutsche Bank, which maintained a "buy" rating on the membership warehouse operator.
Analysts lowered their price target after revising their 2016 fiscal year earnings estimate to $5.30 per share from $5.39 per share. The revenue estimate was dropped to $116.77 billion from $116.55 billion.
For fiscal 2017, Deutsche Bank analysts reduced their earnings per share estimate to $6.07 from $6.15.
"Downside risks include slowing club growth, a lower renewal rate, GPM pressure, and a consumer slowdown," analysts said in a note released this morning.
The downward revisions comes after the retailer's mixed fiscal 2016 third quarter financial results, which were released last Wednesday after the market close.
Shares of Costco closed down by 0.21% to $148.77 on Tuesday.
