Willis Towers Watson downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank analsyt Joshua Shanker downgraded Willis Towers Watson to Sell with a $122 price target saying he is skeptical management can deliver on bullish expectations for $10.10+ earnings in 2018, above consensus of $9.97. The analyst expects near-term newsflow will likely pressure buy-side enthusiasm and believes earnings will be closer to $9.40 in 2018 as the company faces increasing revenue growth headwinds.

Willis Towers Watson should be sold into analyst day rally, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sarah DeWitt recommends that investors use any strength in shares of Willis Towers Watson following tomorrow's analyst day as a selling opportunity. Willis could provide upbeat long-term earnings guidance due to merger revenue synergies, expense reductions and share buybacks, DeWitt tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, thinks long-term earnings growth "could be challenging to sustain if organic growth remains weak." She also remains skeptical about revenue synergies. DeWitt keeps an Underweight rating on Willis Towers Watson with a $115 price target.

Willis Towers Watson analyst day does not improve outlook, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Joshua Shanker says Willis Towers Watson's analyst day yesterday did not improve the company's outlook. Questions remain unanswered, especially around the achievability of 2018 guidance and the true extent of the savings possible under current restructuring, Shanker tells investors in a research note. He believes Willis' 2018 earnings per share guidance of $10.10 "could be a stretch." The analyst keeps a Hold rating on the shares with a $122 price target. Citi this morning named Willis Towers Watson its top pick in the Insurance Broker space.
