Market Perform
Kansas City Southern still facing Mexican regulatory uncertainty, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Jason Seidl noted Kansas City Southern posted another impressive quarter but said its current valuation and regulatory uncertainty regarding Mexico keeps him on the sidelines. He said increased intermodal network density and other efficiencies should drive margin improvement and the shares are attractive for patient long-term investors, but he is maintaining his Market Perform rating. Seidl raised his price target to $104 from $95 on Kansas City Southern shares.

Kansas City Southern pullback on Harvey would be buying opportunity, says Aegis
Aegis analyst Jeffrey Kauffman said the rail operators likely to be most significantly impacted by Hurricane Harvey are Kansas City Southern (KSU) and Union Pacific (UNP), but he would view any potential disruption and stock price dislocation as an opportunity to own the shares, particularly those of Kansas City. While negative to Q3 earnings, the industry has been very efficient in terms of allowing peers to use alternative routes and investors would likely look through much of the impact, Kauffman tells investors. With the exception of trucking companies serving the oil patch, this could end up being a net positive for truckers, added Kauffman, who listed Celadon (CGI), YRC Worldwide (YRCW) and Swift (SWFT) as his favorite ideas.

Union Pacific downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Christian Wetherbee downgraded Union Pacific (UNP) to Neutral saying the Q3 rally in rail stocks has "pulled forward value." It is getting more challenging to see enough upside to broadly recommend names, Wetherbee tells investors in a research note. The analyst remains focused on Kansas City Southern (KSU) as his top pick. He keeps a $120 price target for shares of Union Pacific.

Citi sees increasing likelihood of Vistra acquiring Dynegy
After hosting investor meetings with managements in Texas, Citi analyst Praful Mehta believes the likelihood of a Dynegy (DYN) acquisition by Vistra Energy (VST) is increasing. He views price as the "likely gating item" and continues to expect an $11-$12 per share buyout price for Dynegy in an all stock deal. Vistra management seems "more open to the deal than we originally interpreted," Mehta tells investors in a research note. The analyst also believes a private equity exit for Calpine (CPN) is increasing likely as the company continues with its reported sale process.

Buy
Vistra Energy initiated with a Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Praful Mehta started Vistra Energy (VST) with a Buy rating and $22 price target. The company's "strong" retail business is supported by its "strong" generation footprint, the analyst contends. He expects Vistra will likely acquire Dynegy (DYN) in an all stock deal at $11-$12 per share, representing a "win-win" for both shareholder groups. Mehta pegs acquisition upside for Vistra shareholders at $3 per share.
