Rockwell Collins upgraded to Buy from Hold at Vertical Research

Vertical Research analyst Robert Stoddard upgraded Rockwell Collins (COL) to Buy with a $143 price target, as he believes there remains the possibility of the company being acquired. As detailed in colleague Jeff Sprague's related report United Technologies (UTX), the two analysts cannot rule out United Technologies making a bid for Rockwell Collins. They believe it could be more exotically structured as a Reverse Morris Trust, which would make a transaction more financially appealing to United Technologies shareholders, while preserving its credit rating, and providing Rockwell Collins shareholder with a decent premium.

Rockwell Collins could be acquired for $145 per share, says RBC Capital
After Reuters and Bloomberg reported that United Technologies (UTX) had made an unconfirmed bid to buy Rockwell Collins (COL), RBC Capital analyst Matthew McConnell estimates that Rockwell Collins could be acquired for $145 per share. The analyst says that the deal would strengthen United Technologies and has "ample strategic rationale," although he notes that airplane makers have expressed opposition to similar deals in the past. He adds that the deal "would move" United Technologies "up the technology curve" and enable it to enter the avionics business which he says has high barriers of entry. McConnell thinks that there is a 50% chance of a deal taking place and raised his price target on Rockwell Collins to $133 from $120. He keeps a Sector Perform rating on Rockwell Collins.

JPMorgan views potential Rockwell deal as mixed for United Technologies
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa says that at face value, he would view an acquisition of Rockwell Collins (COL) as a "mixed event" for United Technologies (UTX). Benefits include a solid strategic rationale that plays into the broader aerospace sector narrative and some earnings accretion, Tusa tells investors in a research note after Bloomberg reported Friday that United Technologies is mulling the deal. However, the potential size of the acquisitions dilutes the positives somewhat and makes achieving targeted returns a challenge, Tusa contends. He adds that a stock issuance may be required for United Technologies. The analyst has a Neutral rating on the shares.

Wells says United Technologies unlikely to buy Rockwell Collins soon
After Bloomberg reported that United Technologies (UTX) is considering buying Rockwell Collins (COL), Wells Fargo calls the timing of its interest "surprising," partly because major airplane makers, including Boeing (BA), are considering moving into avionics and aftermarket as well. The firm thinks that this situation would increase the risk of an acquisition of Rockwell Collins for United Technologies. Wells is "skeptical" that such a deal is "imminent," but estimates that United would pay about $150 per share for Rockwell and says a 100% cash transaction would be 9% accretive for United. Wells keeps Outperform ratings on both stocks.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Rockwell Collins (COL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Ken Herbert saying the selloff when Boeing (BA) said it would establish an avionics unit that could eventually bring more work in-house. 2. American Airlines (AAL) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) were upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. 3. Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Drew Venker saying Cabot offers "excellent" risk/reward in a volatile oil/gas price environment and said downside is limited from lower gas prices, due to a strong balance sheet and free cash flow. 4. Southern Company (SO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jonathan Arnold citing news that Scana (SCG) plans to abandon its two new nuclear units at the V.C. Summer site in South Carolina. 5. National Grid (NGG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg with analyst Andrew Fisher citing the selloff in shares which creates favorable risk/reward. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
