On The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday

Stocks opened deep in negative territory and saw their lows a short time after the open. The early weakness was attributed to a hotter than expected producer prices report. The PPI strength was attributed to the impact of the hurricanes in September but analysts will be watching tomorrow's consumer prices report for confirmation of the inflationary data. By midday the averages had cut their losses in half and then drifted for the remainder of the day. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index rose 0.4% in both the headline and core readings for October, which was hotter than expected inflation data. The NFIB small business optimism index rose 0.8% to 103.8 in October. In Europe, Germany's Q3 GDP data came in stronger than expected, rising 2.8% from the prior year, while broader Eurozone Q3 GDP growth was about in-line with expectations. Eurostat confirmed a preliminary estimate that Eurozone gross domestic product grew 2.5% on a year-over-year basis from July to September. In Asia, China's October data was a bit softer than expected. Industrial production rose 6.2% and retail sales climbed 10%, both of which were a bit below the consensus forecasts. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of General Electric (GE) were down for the second consecutive day as analysts issued their reactions to yesterday's guidance cut and dividend reduction at the industrial giant. Among them, RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray downgraded GE to Sector Perform and cut his price target to $20 from $25, saying that he now expects the turnaround at the company to be more protracted than previously anticipated. GE shares slipped another 6% today after the stock had declined by more than 7% yesterday... Shares of Home Depot (HD), another member of the Dow, rose 1.4% after it reported stronger than expected comparable sales growth, driven in part by recovery efforts following recent hurricane activity, and raised its fiscal year profit outlook... Meanwhile, Envision Healthcare (EVHC) shares surged 10% after Bloomberg reported that the company has attracted buyout interest from firms including Carlyle Group (CG) and Onex. The private equity groups may bid for the company alone or as part of a group, sources told Bloomberg. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Buffalo Wing Wings (BWLD), which jumped 24% after The Wall Street Journal reported that the restaurant chain owner has received a takeover bid from private-equity firm Roark Capital. Also higher was Advance Auto Parts (AAP), which gained 16% after its quarterly earnings topped expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was Loxo Oncology (LOXO), which dropped 4% after the company announced a partnership with Bayer (BAYRY) to develop and commercialize its two lead cancer-fighting drugs. Also lower following their earnings reports were Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS), which fell 3%, and Switch (SWCH), which dropped 5.25%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 30.23, or 0.13%, to 23,409.47, the Nasdaq lost 19.72, or 0.29%, to 6,737.87, and the S&P 500 declined 5.97, or 0.23%, to 2,578.87.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying that he now expects the turnaround at the company to be more protracted than previously anticipated, noting the roadmap laid out by new CEO John Flannery fell short of expectations regarding the scope of the business model/portfolio changes. 2. Phillips 66 (PSX) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays analyst Paul Cheng saying the company's diversified business model will likely drive underperformance in a strong margin uptrend environment for U.S. refiners. 3. Hilton (HLT) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Grambling citing the recent outperformance of the stock for the rating change, but he expects consistent double-digit earnings growth on low single-digit RevPAR. 4. PulteGroup (PHM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm citing recent share strength and raised its price target to $33 from $31. 5. Albemarle (ALB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst David Begleiter downgraded Albemarle (ALB) to Hold from Buy while raising his price target for the shares to $150 from $130.

Obin said the company is focused on the core portfolio and is evaluating other options withing its portfolio, where there is significant optionality.

As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray downgraded General Electric to Sector Perform from Outperform and cut his price target to $20 from $25. Dray says that he now expects the turnaround at the company to be more protracted than previously anticipated, noting the roadmap laid out by new CEO John Flannery fell short of expectations regarding the scope of the business model/portfolio changes. The analyst says the investment community was especially disappointed by the scope of the "missteps and secular challenges", as well as the systemic cash flow shortfalls, in the Power segment, along with the disclosure that the company's dividend payout was above the scope of industrial cash flows for several years.

If there is a case seen for structural changes in volumes, cash collections and/or physician rate, Mayo sees the potential for "very acceptable returns" on a theoretical LBO in the $40 per share "area," he tells investors. Mayo, who thinks the "upside risk" of an LBO is being underappreciated, keeps an Outperform rating and $35 price target on Envision Healthcare shares.

The stock in afternoon trading is up 8% to $27.96. Such an offer is based on an 11 times 2018 EBITDA estimate, which is multiple similar to the one paid by Blackstone (BX) for Team Health in late 2016, Wiederhorn tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Envision has a "strong growth business" and he recommends continuing to buy the shares at current levels. Wiederhorn has an Outperform rating on Envision with a $40 price target.

Anderson says that despite the industry headwinds and the pending exit of CEO Sally Smith, the company is laying the groundwork for a return to SSS growth, margin expansion, and increased shareholder returns. The analyst also says the recent decline in spot wing costs, already down 15% since summer end, will add to EPS next year. Anderson keeps his Buy rating and $160 price target on Buffalo Wild Wings.

Wolfe calls it 'way too early' to think about LBOs for most auto part
Wolfe Research analyst Chris Bottiglieri noted that auto part retailers have been "spookily rebounding" despite his survey pointing to negative investor sentiment, leading him to revisit his LBO model to assess take-out risk for the group. He concludes that while Advance Auto Parts (AAP) is entering a valuation range where an LBO is "in the discussion," he sees it as still "way too early" to consider the possibility of an LBO for O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY), AutoZone (AZO) or Genuine Parts (GPC). While Advance Auto shareholder Starboard may not sanction a deal that locks in losses, his estimated holding cost of $154 for the firm is a "soft floor" for a take-out price, he added.

Raymond James analyst Dan Wewer downgraded Advance Auto Parts to Market Perform from Strong Buy citing growing business risks facing the profit recovery story. The analyst is concerned that management initiatives to improve EBIT% and ROIC may lead to market share losses if not properly executed. They include tightening the policy for accepted product returns, increasing the number of stores district managers must supervise, and a reduction in gross inventory level by 20%. The analyst adds the company is on track to double its stores in Florida, which represents 8% of the store base, and could make it difficult to achieve its FY21 goal of mid-single-digit comp sales growth due to increasing competitive overlap.

Loxo agreement in best interest of shareholders, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Eric Schmidt says that while Loxo Oncology's (LOXO) collaboration with Bayer (BAYRY) "will turn a few heads" since it includes 50% of U.S. rights, it represents a "solid monetization" of the company's TRK inhibitor franchise. Further, the analyst notes optimism before the agreement that Loxo might be an acquisition candidate ahead of larotrectinib's 2018 launch could be contributing to today's selloff. The deal is in the best interests of shareholders and $1B in nearer-term payments is substantial, Schmidt contends. He believes the agreement can be seen as one that monetizes a good portion of the TRK franchise value for upfront cash. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Loxo Oncology.
