Dutch court dismisses Elliott's bid to oust Akzo Nobel chairman, Telegraph says

An effort by activist investor Elliott Advisors to remove the chairman of Dulux owner Akzo Nobel (AKZOY) has been dismissed by a Dutch court, Telegraph reports. Elliott had recently called for an emergency general meeting to vote on chairman Antony Burgmans' role after Elliott was displeased that he rebuffed a EUR26B acquisition offer by PPG Industries (PPG), the report notes.

JPMorgan thinks PPG could make another go at AkzoNobel
PPG Industries (PPG) intended to move on its from acquisition interest in AkzoNobel (AKZOY) following the rejection of its overtures, but the resignation of Akzo's CEO Ton Buchner for health reasons "complicates" that decision, JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. Buchner is strongly against the potential deal, as was Akzo's Chairman Antony Burgmans, who will no longer be Chairman as of May 2018, the analyst points out. Zekauskas believes the likelihood of a renewed acquisition effort from PPG is "larger than might be expected" given the lack of Akzo shareholder support for the Buchner/Bergmans opposition stance. The analyst views PPG shares as attractive given its free cash flow yield of 6%-7% as well as potential benefits from acquisitions. He keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $110 price target. The coatings maker declined yesterday 6% to $106.72 after reporting Q2 results. Its CEO on the earnings call said the company is putting AkzoNobel in the rear-view mirror.

PPG would be worth over $130/share with Akzo deal, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas believes PPG Industries (PPG) will bid higher for AkzoNobel (AKZOY) given the accretion potential of the deal. A bid above EUR 90 per share will likely prove attractive to the Akzo shareholder, Zekauskas tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes PPG would be worth in excess of $130 per share following a takeover of Akzo. He continues to view PPG as a good long-term investment and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $110 price target.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Goldman Sachs (GS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Brennan Hawken saying the market seems to be pricing in an inflection in Goldman's trading revenue despite the recent weakness, suggesting a recovery is needed to justify 2018 consensus estimates. 2. Constellation Brands (STZ) downgraded to Neutral from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs. 3. Boston Beer (SAM) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying she sees further downside risk from weaker volumes and believes 2018 will be another year of volume decline and limited margin offset. 4. athenahealth (ATHN) downgraded to Underweight from Equal-Weight at First Analysis with analyst Frank Sparacino saying the valuation at current share levels is ahead of the underlying fundamentals in the short term. 5. PPG (PPG) was downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Following the company's Q2 results, analyst James Sheehan predicts that the company's EPS will increase just 4% this year due to input cost pressure and low coatings demand.
