Ford briefly idles Mustang factory after heavy Camaro promotions, Bloomberg says

Ford (F) is idling its Mustang plant in Michigan for one week after U.S. sales of the car fell 32% last month, Bloomberg reported, citing spokesperson statements. The factory will be idled to "match production capacity with demand," the spokesperson told Bloomberg, adding that it will resume production on October 17. Last month, GM's (GM) Camaro overtook Mustang sales for the first time in nearly two years due in part to higher promotional offers, and Ford sales analyst Erick Merckle tells the publication that "in terms of incentives, we're always going to be disciplined."

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Ascena Retail (ASNA) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital and to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer. 4. Avnet (AVT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel and to Sell from Hold at Cross Research. 5.

Loop Capital wonders if Trump is trying to kill Kansas City Southern
Following Monday's presidential debate, Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson is rethinking his reluctance to believing a potential Donald Trump presidency is a threat to Kansas City Southern's business. Trump opened the debate by attacking Kansas City Southern customer Ford Motor's (F) transplanting of auto assembly plants from the U.S. to Mexico, Paterson tells investors in a research note. KSU was the best performing rail stock and the Mexican peso was 2.5% stronger the day after Hillary Clinton's debate victory, the analyst points out. He views Mexico as a "key growth engine" for both KSU and Union Pacific (UNP). Paterson cites a CNN poll for Clinton's debate victory. The analyst has a Buy rating on KSU with a $115 price target.

Autos and Autos Parts sector downgraded to Cautious from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst David Tamberrino downgraded the Autos and Auto Parts sector to Cautious from Neutral saying the US Auto cycle peaked in 2015 and is being held up by increasing OEM incentives. The analyst said OEM earnings will decline in 2017/2018 as negative pricing and lower production pressure North American results, but expects suppliers' earnings to hold up longer. The analyst sees upside to Delphi (DLPH) and Harman (HAR) given exposure to secular growth areas and upside to Goodyear Tire (GT) given secular HVA tire growth. Tamberrino downgraded Lear (LEA) to Sell citing elevated expectations and valuation, cut BorgWarner (BWA) to Neutral on valuation, downgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Neutral on execution risk and capital deployment, and upgraded AutoNation (AN) to Neutral given a more defensive business.

Overweight
General Motors upgraded to Overweight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley upgraded General Motors to Overweight from Equal Weight and increased its price target to $37 from $29. Analyst Adam Jonas raised near-term earnings estimates 5% above consensus and believes even flat earnings in 2017 and 2018 would be received as a positive surprise by the market. Further, the analyst said investors are underestimating how long the auto cycle can last and that General Motor's earnings and free cash flow could have a materially longer duration than the market is currently discounting. He believes investors are overlooking the time and steps needed for fully autonomous transport and said management has a healthy and realistic acceptance that it can't and should not do everything alone and will likely explore new business structures with the potential of positive values.

Lockheed Martin (LMT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Sam Pearlstein saying he believes the company's earnings can grow 20% per year through 2020. 4. U.S. Steel (X), AK Steel (AKS), and Olympic Steel (ZEUS) were upgraded to Sector Weight from Underweight at KeyBanc with analyst Ivan Marcuse saying the stocks at current levels better reflect the more competitive market conditions he expects in Q4 and 2017. 5.

Further, the company has yet to break even in Europe on an annual basis and its near-term prospects are clouded by Brexit uncertainties.
