Buy
IBM upgraded to Buy on earnings growth at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded IBM to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $185 from $170. Analyst Wamsi Mohan expects 2017 profits to grow as earnings have stabilized and negative revisions are unlikely and expects tailwinds from moderating pace of investments and savings from restructuring efforts. Further, the analyst expects IBM transnational revenues to recovery driven by the mainframe cycle in 2017 and the adoption of a Hybrid cloud model. Mohan said IBM is the most under owned tech named by large-cap US fund managers and provides upside from accumulation.

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.
