Restoration Hardware Q2 upside driven by pull forward, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Adam Sindler attributes Restoration Hardware's upside in Q2 to pull forward from Q3. The pull forward of sales into Q2 from Q3 is primarily related to outdoor furniture, Sindler tells investors in a research note. He points out the company reiterated its annual guidance despite the upside in Q2. Nonetheless, the analyst believes Restoration's trends are stabilizing and he upped his price target for the shares to $40 from $28. Sindler reiterates a Hold rating on the name. The stock is up 11% to $39.00 in pre-market trading.

Restoration Hardware strength not justified, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Oliver Chen believes the after-market strength in Restoration Hardware shares following the company's Q2 earnings beat is not justified. The analyst said the beat was driven by the low-quality pull forward of Q3 demand, since comps were running negative and deteriorating in the second half. He believes there is still too much uncertainty in sales inflection, execution issues, and negative free cash flow for investors to get involved. Chen maintained his Market Perform rating and lowered his price target to $33 form $35 on Restoration Hardware shares.

As noted earlier, Stifel analyst Mark Swartzberg downgraded Coca-Cola (KO) to Hold from Buy. The analyst downgraded the stock after Pepsi (PEP) reported better than expected Q3 results. The analyst says that Coca-Cola's and Pepsi's organic EPS growth appears to be similar, but he believes that Pepsi is less vulnerable to foreign exchange fluctuations. Additionally, he believes that Coca Cola European Bottlers (CCE) is a better investment than Coca-Cola because of the large amount of revenue synergies which that Coca Cola European Bottlers has identified.

The analyst raised her price target for the shares to $90 from $77. Jones this morning also upgraded KapStone (KS) to Buy. She raised her estimates across the Paper & Packaging space to reflect the likelihood of success for the October containerboard price hike initiative. Jones also raised her price target for Buy-rated WestRock to $53 from $50 and Hold-rating International Paper (IP) to $50 from $42.

International Paper to increase containerboard prices, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Debbie Jones says International Paper (IP) is increasing containerboard prices by $50 per ton effective October 1st, citing trade contacts. The analyst notes that she is not aware of similar moves from other producers, but suspects additional announcements may come. Nonetheless, Jones questions whether or not the full amount will be achieved and if an increase is sustainable. A successful increase would be beneficial not only for International Paper, but also for WestRock (WRK), Packaging Corp (PKG) and KapStone (KS), the analyst says, noting that Greif (GEF) also has modest exposure to containerboard. In afternoon trading, International Paper's stock has gained over 4% to $48.59 per share.

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on the today's top analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) initiated with a Buy at Sterne Agee CRT by analyst Jason Weaver, who put a $300 price target on shares. The firm has a positive view of what it sees as the company's "leading position and growth trajectory in energy, equity, and fixed income trading and clearing." The firm adds that the company's revenue mix is less volatile than its peers, while synergies and cost controls have made the company more profitable. Weaver also initiated Nasdaq (NDAQ) with a Buy rating and $76 price target, CME Group (CME) with a Neutral rating and $90 price target and CBOE Holdings (CBOE) with an Underperform rating and $56 price target. 2. Akari Therapeutics (AKTX) initiated with a Buy rat Canaccord. The firm set a $33 price target on shares and cited expectations for FDA product approvals and a level of underappreciation by investors for its shares. 3. Ralph Lauren (RL) initiated with a Buy and $115 price target by BB&T analyst Corinna Freedman, who believes Ralph Lauren will be successful in its turnaround and gain relevancy among a new younger demographic due to its strong vertical global brand house with a powerful heritage and sees significant category opportunities remaining in Women's and Accessories. Additionally, Freedman said International growth opportunities remain and Club Monaco repositioning is underappreciated. 4. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) initiated with a Sell at Standpoint Research and $94 target. 5. PACCAR (PCAR) initiated with a Hold at Argus. The firm said it expects challenging industry conditions to pressure earnings through 2017. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

CBOE 'likely in the cross-hairs' of bigger peers, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Andrew Bond said he thinks the strategic risk of a deal whereby CBOE (CBOE) buys Bats Global Markets (BATS), as it has been reported to be in talks to do, outweighs the potential reward. However, he also believe CBOE's relatively small size, limited regulatory risk, clean balance sheet, and strong organic growth make it an attractive target for its largest exchange peers, such as IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and CME Group (CME). A combined CBOE/BATS would be more difficult to acquire, so if CBOE is to be acquired, "the time is now," added Bond.

Impact on Booz Allen from employee arrest unclear, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Cai von Rumohr said it is still unclear what impact the recent arrest of a Booz Allen employee alleged to have stolen classified computer codes while contracted at the NSA may have on the company. Since this incident is the second of its sort involving a Booz Allen employee, after Edward Snowden, it could have an impact on the company's brand image, the analyst said. However, von Rumohr noted that Booz Allen did not face any litigation, lose any contracts, or have any direct impact on its revenues in the wake of the Snowden incident and that its shares bounced back relatively quickly after the fall associated with that event. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Booz Allen shares.

The analyst believes near-term share appreciation may be capped near-term with shares trading at a healthy premium to peers.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AstraZeneca (AZN) downgraded to Sell at Goldman saying the risk/reward is negative due to valuation and high pipeline expectations. 2. Avon Products (AVP) downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray by analyst Stephanie Wissink, who said Avon's topline growth now relies almost exclusively on international markets, where economic uncertainty persists. 3. Booz Allen (BAH) downgraded to Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Gesuale saying near-term consensus expectations are overly optimistic in terms of growth, despite management cautioning about needing time to staff recent contract wins and incremental investments required to drive long-term growth. 4. Hertz (HTZ) downgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse by analyst Anjaneya Singh, who cited lower confidence in the company's outlook following yesterday's Q1 preannouncement. He adds that Hertz indicated that weaker pricing would cause revenue per available car day to decline 2.5%-3.5%. 5. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Neutral at Goldman with analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann saying last week's restructuring announcement will pressure Victoria's Secret near-term comp sales growth, which may result in multiple compression until visibility to comp re-acceleration improves.

Raymond James analyst Brian Gesuale upgraded Booz Allen to Outperform and established a $36 price target saying yesterday's selloff creates an attractive entry point. The analyst said they do not expect an adverse impact to Booz Allen's NSA footprint following the latest employee controversy and notes it is only 5% of total revenue. Further, Gesuale said fundamentals are accelerating and earnings revision risk is to the upside.
