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 price target raised to $65 from $56 at Argus
Argus analyst Bill Selesky raised his price target on Baker Hughes (BHI) after the company agreed to combine with GE's (GE) oil and gas unit. The analyst expects the new company to compete more effectively with Halliburton (HAL) and Schlumberger (SLB). He expects Baker Hughes to be boosted by GE's digital technology, and keeps a Buy rating on Baker Hughes.

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.

Deutsche sees path to regulatory approval for GE, Baker deal
Deutsche Bank analyst Mike Urban points out that there is "very little overlap" between General Electric's (GE) oil and gas operations and Baker Hughes (BHI). Should the deal materialize as press reports are suggesting, the analyst sees a "much easier" path to regulatory approval than the failed Halliburton (HAL), Baker merger. Urban views a potential transaction positively for the diversified service providers and notes Weatherford (WFT) is his top pick.

Baker gets no premium in GE deal without synergies, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brad Handler says his quick valuation suggests that Baker Hughes (BHI) receives no premium in its merger with General Electric (GE) without synergies. The lack of premium isn't surprising as the deal will be "sold" based on cost and revenue synergies, Handler tells investors in a research note. He notes that the cost synergies target of $1.6B by 2020 is a surprise based on Schlumberger's and Cameron's (CAM) target of $500M. Handler has a Hold rating on Baker Hughes with a $48 price target.

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.
