Ford, Ekso Bionics announce partnership for upperbody exoskeletal tool

Ford said in a statement: "Putting dishes on a high shelf or changing an overhead lightbulb occasionally might not be difficult, but could you imagine performing either of these tasks 4,600 times per day? How about 1 million times a year?These are the approximate number of times some Ford assembly line workers lift their arms during overhead work tasks. At this rate, the possibility of fatigue or injury on the body increases significantly. But a new upper body exoskeletal tool - the result of a partnership between Ford and California-based Ekso Bionics - helps lessen the chance of injury. Called EksoVest, the wearable technology elevates and supports a worker's arms while performing overhead tasks. It can be fitted to support workers ranging from 5 feet tall to 6 feet 4 inches tall, and provides adjustable lift assistance of five pounds to 15 pounds per arm. It's comfortable to wear because it's lightweight, it isn't bulky, and it allows workers to move their arms freely. Designed and built for dynamic, real-world environments like factories, construction sites and distribution centers, the non-powered vest offers protection and support against fatigue and injury by reducing the stress and strain of high-frequency, long-duration activities that can take a toll on the body over time... With support from the United Automobile Workers and Ford, EksoVest is being piloted in two U.S. plants, with plans to test in other regions, including Europe and South America."

Ford bull case view raised despite 'significant headwinds' at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas raised his 2017 EPS estimate for Ford to near the midpoint of the company's guidance following its Q3 report and slightly increased his price target on the stock to $10 from $9. While he keeps an Underweight rating on Ford, stating that the headwinds it faces are significant, he also sees the "scope for an equally significant response" and raised his bull case to $25 from $18 given a sum-of-the-parts analysis under which he values Ford's truck business, including the F-series and others, at nearly $20 per share, Ford Europe, S. America and Asia Pacific at "slightly less than zero" and "Ford Future" at $3B, or 74c per Ford share.

Goldman sees 28% downside in GM, downgrades shares to Sell
Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino downgraded General Motors (GM) to Sell from Neutral saying his price target of $32 offers 28% potential downside. The analyst continues to believe the North America auto cycle has peaked and he remains cautious on the sector. He sees "outsized downside" to shares of GM and expects a negative earnings inflection in 2018. Ford's (F) recently refreshed F-Series leaves GM vulnerable to share loss in 2018, Tamberrino tells investors in a research note. The analyst views Ford shares as more fairly valued. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name while upping his target for the shares to $13 from $10.

Ford downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Joseph Spak downgraded Ford to Sector Perform from Outperform, saying he believes new CEO Jim Hackett has a solid long-term vision but it is very early in the turnaround and he thinks it will take time for change to come. Consensus 2018 numbers look high, said Spak, who keeps a $13 price target on Ford shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Brian Johnson saying the company is starting "substantially behind" General Motors (GM) in current North America margins, and behind both GM and Tesla (TSLA) in its positioning for the "megatrends and disruptive mobility." 2. HP Enterprise (HPE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Jim Suva saying fundamentals in the company's core enterprise group remain challenging, and accelerated restructuring payments will pressure core fee cash flow in fiscal year 2018. 3. XL Group (XL) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker saying the company may be underestimating the impact of third quarter catastrophes, which creates downside risk to consensus estimates. 4. HubSpot (HUBS) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Brent Bracelin saying the risk/reward looks balanced with the shares up 82% year-to-date. 5. Hostess Brands (TWNK) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula saying slowing category trends, market share loss in its Sweet Baked Goods unit and recent management turnover create an unfavorable setup. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
