ServiceMaster upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet

Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev upgraded ServiceMaster to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $69 from $39. The analyst believes his bearish thesis of too few technicians serving too many customers causing a deterioration in organic growth has played out. The "road to full recovery is still long," but a pest control survey indicates that Terminix may be "finally on the mend," Dolev tells investors in a research note. He notes that his technician unit economic analysis suggests that margin recovery could be faster than many believe, with Terminix EBITDA returning to growth by 2019.

INITIATION

William Blair starts two in Pest Control Services with Outperform ratings
William Blair analyst Tim Mulrooney last night initiated both Rollins (ROL) and ServiceMaster (SERV) with Outperform ratings. The U.S. pest control market is growing with attractive investment characteristics, Mulrooney told investors in a research note. He sees opportunity for more than 15% upside in Rollins shares over the next 18 to 24 months with "relatively less downside given the company's defensive characteristics." The analyst's cash flow analyses suggest upside of 15%-20% for ServiceMaster shares over the next 12 months.

ServiceMaster price target raised to $52 from $46 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gary Bisbee raised his price target on ServiceMaster to $52, forecasting a 9% reduction in 2018 effective tax rate that will boost this year's EPS by about 14%. The analyst is "neutral" on the company over the near term following the strong run in its stock price since May, but expects a more positive outlook for the longer term on better performance at Terminix and higher valuation in the wake of American Home Shield spin-off. Bisbee keeps his Sector Perform rating on ServiceMaster.

Sector Perform
ServiceMaster downgraded to Sector Perform on valuation at RBC Capital
As previously noted, RBC Capital analyst Gary Bisbee downgraded ServiceMaster to Sector Perform from Outperform and maintained his $44 price target. Bisbee says the stock price appreciated about 30% since May as a result of management change, improved Terminix growth rate, likely benefits in the Franchise Service Group business from the recent hurricane activity, and the anticipation of U.S. tax reform. The analyst says that while these positives warranted a stock price appreciation, the good news has now been priced in.
