FCA conducts antitrust investigation into aviation brokers, FT reports

The Financial Conduct Authority has launched an antitrust investigation into aviation brokers regarding the sharing of confidential client information by seizing computers from Aon (AON), Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Marsh & McLennan (MMC) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) earlier this month, the Financial Times says, citing people familiar with the the investigation. Marsh said in a statement that "the FCA indicated that it had reasonable grounds for suspecting that Marsh Limited and others have been sharing competitively sensitive information within the aviation (re)insurance sector," and added it would fully cooperate in the investigation. JLT and Aon also said they would cooperate in the investigation, according to FT. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Steven Cahall saying he believes sentiment on the media and theme park conglomerate is improving. 2. Gartner (IT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital and to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital. 3. Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Stefan Burgstaller adding Fiat Chrysler to the Conviction Buy List and raised 2017/18 EBIT estimates by 21%/36%, primarily driven by an improved price-mix as a result of the company's NAFTA product realignment. The analyst said the market appears to be skeptical of the company's earnings prospects but he believes Fiat's ability to improve its NAFTA price mix through shifting of production away from mass-market cars and into more profitable vehicles will drive EBIT growth. 4. Integra LifeSciences (IART) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst David Turkaly saying he believes its recent fundamental performance is sustainable after the company streamlined its portfolio to become faster growing and regenerative medicine focused. 5. Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Citi views $156 target on Willis Towers Watson as conservative
Citi analyst James Naklicki expects Willis Towers Watson to earn $10 per share in 2018. Using the stock's current multiple, which is a 21% discount to the median of its historical valuation, gets a stock price of $153, without dividends, Naklicki told investors Friday in a research note. He expects the valuation gap to narrow as Willis executes towards its 2018 earnings goal, making him think his $156 price target looks conservative. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Willis Towers Watson.
