Buy
DuPont upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Laurence Alexander upgraded DuPont (DD) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $96 from $83. The analyst believes the merger with Dow Chemical (DOW) is likely to close in the near future and that only "cautious enthusiasm" is being priced into the shares. Capitalizing on the targeted cost synergies implies 11%-17% potential upside in the stocks, Alexander tells investors in a research note. The analyst this morning also upgraded Dow Chemical to Buy.

EU approvals of other ag deals may narrow Monsanto deal spread, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas said commentary from the CEOs of DuPont (DD) and Syngenta (SYT) and press reports from Europe suggest that their deals with Dow Chemical (DOW) and ChemChina, respectively, are likely to be approved. Approvals from Europe for those deals may "trigger a meaningful closing of the arbitrage spread" in Monsanto (MON) shares versus Bayer's (BAYRY) offer price, Zekauskas tells investors. He recommends buying Monsanto shares at current levels for this reason, adding that he believes the shares would only fall about 2.5%, or down to $112, in the event of the Bayer deal falling through. Zekauskas keeps an Overweight rating and $128 price target on Monsanto shares, which closed yesterday at just below $115 per share.

Outperform
Dow Chemical price target raised to $66 from $61 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Christopher Parkinson raised his price target for Dow Chemical to $66 from $61 as "strong" fundamentals and cost-cutting execution drove a Q4 beat. Heading into 2017, the analyst is encouraged by the company's ability to drive profit growth through ongoing cost-cutting initiatives, streamlined execution of Dow Corning cost synergies and a timely ramp of the project backlog, which should more than offset some risk regarding a volatile macro and FX. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
