Neff double upgraded to Buy on improving pricing, free cash flow at BofA/Merrill

As previously reported, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Ross Gilardi upgraded Neff (NEFF) by two notches, to Buy from Underperform, and raised his price target on the shares to $20 from $12. The analyst said the read-across on rental from CONEXPO was positive, pricing in the rental market is improving, state fiscal stimulus measures are supportive in the Sunbelt region and that the company's free cash flow generation is reassuring. Gilardi also noted that Neff shares have lagged industry leader United Rentals (URI) year-to-date and thinks his new target, which is an 11% discount to his target for United Rentals, "seems justified."

Piper ups price targets after Rental Sentiment Survey
Piper Jaffray analyst George Tong raised his price targets for United Rentals (URI) and Neff (NEFF) following his firm's Rental Sentiment Survey of rental executives. The results increased the analyst's confidence in a "strengthening equipment rental demand outlook driven by aggressive planned increases in infrastructure spending under a Trump administration." Checks show stronger expectations for rental revenue growth over the next year, backed by an uptick in both rental rate and rental volume growth trends, Tong tells investors in a research note. He also believes increases in infrastructure spending will likely benefit 2018 estimates. The analyst raised his price target for United Rentals to $112 from $95 and for Neff to $15 from $13 citing a stronger spending outlook. Tong is a buyer of both stocks.
