Technical View: United Continental falls after results and outlook

The company reported Q3 results last night and updated its FY17 view. Shares are down sharply with price last at $63.90, down 6% on the session. At that price next support is at $62.54. Resistance is at the $65 area. The short-term uptrend in place since the lows of September would remain intact if price closed above $65 and maintained that level or better going forward.

Big 4 airlines' exposure to Spirit lower than thought, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi believes that sell side analysts at other firms may be overstating the degree of overlap that the "Big 4" airlines - American Airlines (AAL), Delta (DAL), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL) - have with Spirit (SAVE) by not accurately adjusting to include only routes operated within the same time period as competitors. Adjusting to within a 2 hour time channel, he estimates only 5% of United's and Delta's total ASMs are directly exposed to Spirit, while 8% of American's ASMs and 11% of Southwest's are exposed, he tells investors. If United is hoping to influence Spirit's growth, it may choose to continue to compete aggressively, but if its goal is to improve margins, he would expect pricing to stabilize, DeNardi tells investors.

United Continental initiated with a Neutral at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Susan Donofrio initiated American Airlines with a Neutral and $64 price target. The analyst believes management's focus on regaining lost domestic market share will likely lead to financial underperformance.

Recent correction in airline stocks overdone, says UBS
UBS analyst Darryl Genovesi noted that United Continental (UAL) and Alaska Air (ALK) are down about 20% while Delta (DAL) and American (AAL) have fallen about 10% so far in Q3 as the fare-matching narrative has re-surfaced and estimates for fuel costs have risen. However, he views the recent correction as overdone and thinks the airline group as a whole, which was cheap before, is cheaper now without the forward earnings growth outlook being any worse. Genovesi, who doesn't see evidence of a demand drop off in the travel agency data he tracks, thinks Q3 RASM weakness is predominantly "self-inflicted" by oversupply. Other publicly traded companies in the space include JetBlue (JBLU) and Southwest (LUV).

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jami Rubin saying pressure on key products combined with still-slow MD&D growth and continued strains on the consumer will leave the company with below average, long-term growth. 2. United Continental (UAL) downgraded to Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Savanthi Syth saying an improvement in relative profitability versus legacy peers is likely to take longer than previously expected. 3. Ingersoll-Rand (IR) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst C. Stephen Tusa saying he sees more relative upside and better risk/rewards elsewhere in the Electrical Equipment and Multi Industry sector. The analyst expects the company's solid execution to continue and raised his price target for the shares to $98 from $96. 4. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Oliver Chen saying he sees risk to its comparable sales growth and margins if the company can not achieve elevated pricing. 5. Yahoo Japan (YAHOY) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Hiroko Sato citing a lack of catalysts. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
