General Motors initiated with a Neutral at Nomura
Nomura analyst Anindya Das initiated General Motors with a Neutral and a $33 price target.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Motors (GM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying he believes even flat earnings in 2017 and 2018 would be received as a positive surprise by the market. 2. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird analyst David George saying he believes the recent pullback is a buying opportunity. 3. 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.

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.

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.
