Earlier than expected Boeing 777 rate cut negative for suppliers, says UBS
UBS analyst David Strauss said that while Boeing (BA) had previously signaled a 777 production rate cut was coming, he thinks the now-announced cut to 5 planes per month in mid-2017 is 3 to 6 months earlier than expected. He sees the earlier than expected transition as having negative implications for key 777 suppliers, including B/E Aerospace (BEAV), GE (GE), Honeywell (HON), Spirit AeroSystems (SPR) and Triumph Group (TGI). Strauss keeps a Neutral rating on Boeing, as he believes 777X development will burn a couple billion per year with overall FCF declining during this period, but also said the company's 30% dividend increase and $14B buyback announcement signals strong confidence in its cash flow outlook.

The analyst is encouraged by "solid" January intra-quarter volume growth, improving gas price trends, strong retail sales growth, and broadly positive card issuer trends. Further, Greene continues to believe that MasterCard and Visa are attractive at current levels, given their defensible market positions and strong long-term prospects. Nonetheless, he prefers Visa relative to MasterCard at present given the continuing U.S. volume boost from the Costco (COST)/USAA wins and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) Sapphire Reserve momentum, apparent conservative guidance, and Visa Europe accretion benefits.

JPMorgan says use GE rally as selling opportunity
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa recommends using Friday's rally in General Electric shares as a selling opportunity. A possible CEO change does not change the analyst's view that GE is an expensive stock. Discussion of an activist, who owns less than 1% of the company, trying to make changes is a re-run of the case made two years ago, Tusa tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not see much a GE activist can do. The company's "stubbornly low growth and secular challenges embedded in end markets" can't be fixed by a CEO, the analyst contends. Tusa keeps an Underweight rating on shares of GE with a $29 price target. The stock rallied Friday to $30.28 after Fox Business reported that CEO Jeff Immelt is on the "hot seat" with activist Nelson Peltz.

The analyst views the emerging bull case on free cash flow as "overstated and not plausible." He notes his new $27 price target still implies a premium 4% free cash yield and "solid" 3.5% dividend yield.

CFPB, states not looking to put Ocwen out of business, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Jaret Seiberg does not believe the CFPB and the states are looking to put Ocwen out of business despite the latest litigation over how the company services mortgages. He believes forcing the movement of mortgages servicing is fraught with risk for the borrowers as payments can get misplaced, data can be lost, and modification efforts could be derailed. Seiberg said the mortgage servicing business is complex and technical and proving any violations is a low hurdle to clear. He believes the company's fight with NY regulators put them in the crosshairs of other states and that Ocwen "will always attract additional attention." He also noted there are supposedly 1,000 customers that claim they wrongfully had foreclosure proceedings initiated because of Ocwen errors, but based on previous history, he doubts that will end up being the case. Ocwen is not covered by Cowen research and the firm does not have a rating on the stock.

New Residential has protections investors are overlooking, says Citi
Citi analyst Michael Kaye views the Ocwen's (OCN) CFPB lawsuit and state cease and desist orders as a clear negative development for New Residential Investment (NRZ), but the analyst yesterday afternoon kept a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst believes Ocwen services about $120B of New Residential's $600B servicing portfolio. Kaye, however, thinks New Residential has some flexibility since Ocwen's Moody's servicer rating is below SQ3, which qualifies as a potential legal termination event. As such, New Residential has the legal right to move the servicing into its own name and let Ocwen stay on as a sub-servicer, which would provide additional protection, Kaye told investors in a research note. The company can also pull the servicing agreement from Ocwen to another sub-servicer, he adds. Kaye believes New Residential "has some built in protections that investors might be overlooking."

Piper discusses resurfacing of Hasbro, Mattel deal speculation
Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink points out that over her firm's 15 years of coverage, speculation of a merger between Hasbro (HAS) and Mattel (MAT) has surfaced several times. Hasbro's strong Q4 earnings report and share rally, in contrast with Mattel's negative Q4 preannouncement and pullback, has reignited the conjecture, Wissink tells investors in a research note. Economically a merger would create value, but a combination of the number two and three toy companies "would require significant evaluation from anti-trust authorities," the analyst writes. She believes a deal is possible if the Federal Trade Commission widens the boundaries around "youth entertainment & play," say to include video games, digital games and media. Hasbro closed yesterday up 67c to $94.98 while Mattel, after rallying in early trading, closed down 4c to $25.88. Wissink adds that she can find upwards of $500M of merger synergies if the two companies were to combine.

Manhattan Associates services weakness likely to linger, says Brean Capital
Brean Capital analyst Yun Kim said his most recent channel checks for Manhattan Associates indicate services weakness remains and may linger. He said the checks also indicate the issues behind the weakness are temporary and not reflective of any decline in fundamentals. Kim believes the risk/reward at current valuation levels favor the long-term opportunity around the Omni-channel secular trend, which should offset the risks related to the current weakness. Kim reiterated his Buy rating and $75 price target on Manhattan Associates shares.

Adamis resubmission sets up mid-year PDUFA for generic EpiPen, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Jason Kolbert said Adamis Pharmaceuticals' (ADMP) resubmission of its New Drug Application for its epinephrine pre-filled syringe, a generic version of Mylan's (MYL) EpiPen, addresses all the issues in the FDA Complete Response Letter and triggers a 30 day review to "accept" the filing, which should be followed by a six month PDUFA date and approval by June of next year, he believes. Adamis' version is more user friendly, design wise, than Mylan's generic and the market opportunity is large, said Kolbert, who thinks that this can become a significant product for the company "even with just moderate market share assumptions." He keeps a Buy rating and $10 price target on Adamis, which he sees as "poised for a breakout" in 2017.

Adamis undervalued if able to take just 10% of EpiPen market, says Maxim
After privately-held Kaleo announced a "complex pricing strategy" for their EpiPen-like device, Auvi-Q, which is returning to the market, Maxim analyst Jason Kolbert said he views Adamis' (ADMP) PFS to be a better, more user friendly product than Mylan's (MYL) EpiPen, Impax Labs' (IPXL) Adrenaclick and Kaleo's AuviQ. If Adamis can acquire just 10% market share, which he believes is at the low end, the shares are undervalued, Kolbert tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating and $10 price target on Adamis shares.
