Airlines initiated at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Vernon initiated coverage of the U.S. airline sector, saying that he is "bullish on the sector" and asserting that it has "favorable..dynamics." He expects the sector's stocks to have "higher average highs and higher average lows over time," driven partly by its investments in return enhancing programs, revenue enhancing initiatives, and "a stronger outlook for longer term capital return" which isn't reflected in valuation, according to the analyst. Vernon recommends owning airlines that have "less financial and operating leverage." He says that he is "favorably disposed" to Southwest (LUV) and Delta Air Lines (DAL), which he says have high returns and low leverage, and is less upbeat on United Continental (UAL), which he says has higher operating leverage and execution risk. He is bearish on American Airlines (AAL), as he thinks that its capacity growth and financial leverage create significant risk. The analyst started coverage of Southwest with an Outperform rating and a $51 price target. He initiated coverage of Delta and United Continental with Market Perform ratings and $43 and $55 price targets, respectively. He launched American with a $31 price target and Underperform rating.

Progressive personal auto seems to be "breaking out," says MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong says that Progressive's personal auto business "appears to be breaking out," as the company reported that the growth in the number of net premium it wrote accelerated to nearly 12% last quarter. The analyst says he's not concerned by the possibility of the company's combined ratio exceeding 96%, as such an increase would be in-line with its longstanding strategy. He keeps a $40 price target and Buy rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exxon Mobil (XOM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analysts led by Doug Leggate saying Exxon's strong relative performance discount's long-term oil at around $73/bbl and said shares appear to be fairly valued. 2. Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analyst David Roman saying the risk/reward looks balanced at current share levels. Roman lowered his price target for the stock to $674 from $690. 3. DeVry (DV) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Trace Urdan saying he no longer feels confident in his investment thesis following the resignation of CFO Tim Wiggins. 4. Franklin Resources (BEN) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Brennan Hawken arguing the company is the most exposed to the Department of Labor's fiduciary rule of the names he covers given its reliance on the broker sold channel coupled with weak investment performance. He cut his price target for the shares to $28 from $39. 5. Progressive (PGR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst James Naklicki saying consensus margin and earnings expectations are too optimistic.
