Election to impact solar, alternative transportation plays, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch believes Trump's surprise victory, in tandem with Republicans maintaining control of Congress, constitutes a material negative for the majority of stocks under the firm's coverage and injects "significant policy uncertainty" into the growth outlook for multiple verticals, with solar/ alternative transportation plays the most impacted. He thinks residential solar plays will see lower volumes on more challenging regulations/slower demand, and expects First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) to take share of a smaller utility-scale solar project pie. Yieldcos like NextEra Energy Partners (NEP), NRG Yield (NYLD), 8point3 Energy (CAFD), Pattern Energy (PEGI), and TerraForm Power (TERP) could see a smaller set of available projects, he adds. Rusch believes a Trump administration could weaken or repeal corporate fuel economy standards, and a rollback could be a net negative for Johnson Controls (JCI), Ideal Power (IPWR) and Maxwell (MXWL). Also, he would not be surprised to see a Trump administration attempt to block federal support for EV buyers but provide support for companies such as Tesla (TSLA) that are creating U.S. manufacturing jobs.

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. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Evan Calio saying he believes Chevron is differentiated and has the largest free cash flow inflection in 2017-2019 from project start-ups, primarily Wheatstone and Gorgon, driving production growth to 16%, has the best short-cycle opportunity globally, particularly in the Permian,and has higher oil leverage into a cyclical price recovery. 2. Baker Hughes (BHI) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Johnson Controls (JCI) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Joe Ritchie saying he believes Johnson's fundamentals are improving, cost savings should support EBIT growth, and valuation is inexpensive. 4. Brocade upgraded to Outperform on potential takeover at RBC Capital with analyst Mitch Steves saying he believes Brocade makes sense as a strategic asset to the right operator and would be mid-single-digit accretive to the acquirer. 5. VMware (VMW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Summit Redstone. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Conviction Buy
Johnson Controls upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman
Goldman analyst Joe Ritchie added Johnson Controls to the Conviction Buy List and maintained its $46 price target following the completion of the Adient spinoff. The analyst believes Johnson's fundamentals are improving, cost savings should support EBIT growth, and valuation is inexpensive. He believes investors under appreciate several aspects of the story including Johnson's Power Solutions segment which trades like an auto OE business despite its dominant share in the after market, organic growth that could drive upside, and attractive valuation that is even more reasonable with cost savings.

Ashland faces issues in first half of 2016, says Jefferies

He cut his 2016 earnings per share estimate for the company to $7.30 from $7.20 to reflect a "tough start to the year."
