SkyWest's ExpressJet Airlines announces longterm contract strategy

SkyWest's (SKYW) wholly-owned subsidiary ExpressJet Airlines announced the initiation of a long-term strategy. ExpressJet has secured a new, five-year extension of its United Airlines (UAL) ERJ145 contract, effective Jan. 1, 2018 through Dec. 31, 2022. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. ExpressJet and Delta Air Lines (DAL) mutually agreed to initiate the wind-down of its remaining dual-class flying agreement under the Delta Connection brand, allowing ExpressJet opportunities to place aircraft with other partners. The aircraft financed by Delta, including all CRJ900s, will be returned to Delta beginning in Q4; ExpressJet expects to transition other aircraft previously operated under its Delta agreement to other major partners throughout 2018. ExpressJet has secured an agreement with American Airlines (AIG) to transition eight additional CRJ700s to its American Eagle operation. That transition is expected to take place during 2Q18.

American 'most at risk' from United Continental price actions, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Vernon says that American Airlines (AAL) is "most at risk" from United Continental's (UAL) price cuts. The analyst adds that Spirit (SAVE) will have to give its pilots a 60%-80% raise, possibly putting five to six percentage points of its margins at risk. Vernon keeps Market Perform ratings on American and United.

Overweight
Spirit Airlines upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker upgraded Spirit Airlines to Overweight while lowering his price target for the shares to $45 from $56. With the recent selloff, the market is ignoring the company's potential for "medium-term course correction on growth and pricing," Baker tells investors in a research note. He believes the United Continental (UAL), Spirit pricing spat "appears less dire" than the market is pricing in.

Spirit Airlines selloff overdone on fare weakness comments, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Savanthi Syth attributes the selloff in Spirit Airlines (SAVE) shares, and those of other U.S. airline peers, to the company's commentary about fare weakness spreading to a larger number of markets in the last few weeks and signals that the pressure is due to United (UAL) being aggressive with pricing. However, he believes the pullback is overdone, stating that he doesn't believe this is sustainable given United's stated goal to close its margin gap with Delta (DAL). He has a Strong Buy rating on Spirit Airlines shares, which are down nearly 20% in afternoon trading.

Oppenheimer recommends buying American Airlines, United Continental
Oppenheimer analyst Ari Wald continues to make the case that interest rates are bottoming, reflationary sectors are positioned for a stronger second half, and market internals should strengthen as well. The analyst sees additional upside for both Banks and Transports, and within the last, its high-conviction idea is to keep buying airlines, such as Alaska Air (ALK), American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV), and United Continental (UAL). Elsewhere in Transports, Wald is bullish on the breakout in shares of FedEx (FDX) and Old Dominion (ODFL), and views Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Landstar System (LSTR) as attractive pre-breakout candidates.

BofA/Merrill raises Airline estimates, Delta and Southwest best positioned
BofA/Merrill analyst Andrew Didora raised Airline estimates and price target to reflect lower fuel pricing and remains positive on the industry said to remain selective into second-half 2017. The analyst believes Buy rated Delta Air Lines (DAL) and Southwest (LUV) are best positioned for sequential unit revenue improvement in the second half due to decelerating and easing comps and raised their price targets to $71 and $75 from $64 and $62, respectively. The analyst expects capacity to increase modestly in 2018 to +3.4% from +2.8% in 2017 and expects Delta to accelerate capacity growth to +1.9% and Southwest to +5%. As part of the sector note, Didora raised Buy rated United Continental's (UAL) price target to $105 from $85, Alaska Air's (ALK) to $120 from $115, Spirit Airlines' (SAVE) down to $68 from $75, and raised Underperform rated American Airlines' (AAL) to $42 from $40 and lowered Hawaiian Holdings' (AAL) to $43 from $47.

Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Dara Mohsenian saying the company's organic sales growth is accelerating driven by an improved competitive outlook as Coca Cola (KO) and Pepsi (PEP) focus on using cash flow from the U.S. carbonated soft drink segment in high growth areas. 4. Regal Entertainment (RGC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst David Millerciting recent weakness in shares and has confidence the company will pay a special dividend to shareholders around the fourth quarter or in the first half of 2018. 5.

Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded on more cautious U.S. comp sales outlook at BMO Capital with analyst Andrew Strelzik saying he's "more cautious" on the outlook for the company's U.S. comparable sales, partly due to increased cannibalization of stores, increased competition, "throughput headwinds," and the possibility that "contributions from beverage innovation and food growth may have peaked." 2. Albemarle (ALB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst James Sheehan citing recent share strength. 3. Dean Foods (DF) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst John Baumgartnerm citing the second quarter miss and "big" guidance reduction. 4.
