Baker Hughes merger looking 'more favorable,' says Wells Fargo

After further analyzing the merger between Baker Hughes (BHI) and GE's (GE) Oil & Gas unit, Wells Fargo has become more upbeat about the new company's outlook. Specifically, it contends that the new company "has a higher percentage of relatively stable aftermarket service revenue than the market appreciates... along with less-volatile revenue streams and higher margins from Digital Solutions and Downstream Technology." The firm is upbeat about the combined company's longer term outlook, and it thinks that the company's cost synergies will come in above expectations. Wells raised its price target range on Baker Hughes to $69-$71 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

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.

Baker Hughes price target raised to $70 from $64 at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Charles Minervino raised his price target on Baker Hughes (BHI) to $70 from $64 as he believes the share price is still not adequately reflecting the premium paid by General Electric (GE). He believes the assumptions laid out by GE in its presentation to sell the deal were conservative. Minervino reiterated his Positive rating on Baker Hughes shares.

Baker Hughes has an upside case to $72 per share, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Mark Bianchi said Baker Hughes' (BHI) merger with General Electric's (GE) O&G unit was not what many had hoped for, as it dilutes its exposure to a recovery, adding that investors appear to be unwilling to pay for promised benefits of integration that will take time to be proven. Bianchi said the base case for valuation suggests a $64 price target but if higher synergies are achieved, as were discussed by both parties, upside could be as high as $72 per share. Bianchi maintained his Outperform rating and $65 price target on Baker Hughes shares.

McAllister keeps a $176 price target and an Outperform rating on Boeing.
