Outperform
Weatherford initiated at Bernstein
As noted earlier, Bernstein analyst Colin Davies initiated Weatherford with an Outperform rating and a $7 price target. The analyst thinks that the company is poised to benefit from the revival of the North America oil market, and he expects its revenue growth to beat expectations. He is less upbeat about the outlook for the company's margins, and his EBITDA outlook for the company is in-line with the consensus estimate. However, Davies believes that free cash flow increases and liquidity improvements can drive the stock higher in the near-term.

The analyst raised his price target on Fiat Chrysler shares to EUR10 from EUR6.

Susquehanna views court decision as 'significant' setback for Chemours
Susquehanna tells investors that a jury just found Chemours (CC) and DuPont (DD) negligent for its release of PFOA into a Plaintiff's water supply, which caused his testicular cancer. The jury awarded $2M in compensatory damages. The news is a "significant" setback for Chemours as the jury not only awarded damages but also determined that DuPont's misconduct was so severe that punitive damages are warranted, Susquehanna writes. The firm notes that Chemours is indemnifying DuPont in this litigation, thereby bearing the risk.
