Albemarle should be bought on weakness, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Arun Viswanathan says Albermarle bulls were probably disappointed by the company's failure to raise its guidance. However, the analyst thinks that the company's pricing power should be boosted into 2018 by "favorable lithium supply/demand dynamics." He recommends buying the stock on weakness.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. 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. Air Lease (AL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Kristine Liwag citing valuation. 5. AIG (AIG) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Atlantic Equities.

FMC Corporation price target raised to $100 from $86 at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Don Carson raised his price target on FMC Corporation (FMC) to $100 from $86, saying he sees 2018 as a transformational year highlighted by the integration of the DuPont (DD) crop protection acquisition and continued growth in lithium. Carson reiterated his Positive rating on FMC Corporation shares.

Buy
FMC Corporation upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Steve Byrne double upgraded FMC Corporation to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to a Street high $103 from $65 following survey results that indicate ag sales are likely to increase 1-3% rather than decline 1-3% as previously expected. Byrne said FMC will be a structurally better business following the DuPont (DD) acquisition that doubles ag EBITDA and increases margins by 1000bps and further diversifies earnings, especially if competing product dicamba's use is restricted. The analyst sees upside to consensus 2018/19 estimates of 10-15% from ag growth volume acceleration, Dupont synergies, and higher price/volume in Lithium.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. FMC Corporation (FMC) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Steve Byrne double upgrading FMC following survey results that indicate ag sales are likely to increase 1-3% rather than decline 1-3%, as previously expected. 2. Owens Corning (OC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Stephen East saying he sees an "inexpensive valuation" versus peers and has increased comfort in Owens' ability to achieve or surpass this year's targets. Hurricane Harvey is a boost to the company's roofing business, but its insulation replacement "may be the bigger winner," East tells investors. 3. ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal-Weight at First Analysis with analyst Lawrence Berlin citing increased confidence in the company's ability to accelerate growth and hit its mid-teen growth targets after meeting with management. 4. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Brian Tunick saying a return to profitability in the second half of 2017 is more likely following Q2 results that suggest that turnaround efforts are yielding results faster than anticipated. 5. Transocean (RIG) upgraded to Overweight from Equalweight at Capital One with analyst Joseph Gibney saying the group is exhibiting some modest "green shoots" and sees upside to Transocean on a relative basis even in a long/measured recovery and some semblance of contracting pickup.

Buy
FMC Corporation upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Aleksey Yefremov upgraded FMC Corporation to Buy and increased its price target to $97 from $78 on increased growth and upside risks in both the Ag and Lithium businesses. The analyst said the crop price and crop protection demand risks are skewed to the upside and sees upside related to the pending acquisition of DuPont's crop protection assets. Further, McCourt said Lithium EBIT growth of $40M-$50M in 2018 appears conservative.
