Morgan Stanley says A. Schulman deal doesn't alter Lyondell's bigger M&A plans
Morgan Stanley analyst Vincent Andrews believes LyondellBasell's (LYB) acquisition of A. Schulman (SHLM) was well priced, increases the value and optionality of Lyondell's existing compounding business, likely has cost synergies upside and has the potential for revenue synergies. With all of that said, he also does not believe the deal has read through to LyondellBasell's larger scale M&A plans. Andrews reiterates his Overweight rating and $130 price target on LyondellBasell shares.

A. Schulman downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow
As reported earlier, Longbow analyst Dmitry Silversteyn downgraded A. Schulman (SHLM) to Neutral from Buy after the company's stock price rose above LyondellBasell's (LYB) offer price. The analyst believes that investors' expectations of a higher bid may go unfulfilled and the upside in the stock price is limited, as any competing bid would have to top LyondellBasell's by at least $2 to compensate for the associated $50M break-up fee.

General Electric price target lowered to $11 from $14 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa cut his price target for General Electric shares to $11 from $14 and keeps an Underweight rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday up 16c to $15.10. With a "grind it out" strategy now in play, and proceeds from the $20B in targeted value going to the balance sheet or pension deficit reduction, GE's "normalized" level of free cash flow looks to be "well below" $1.00, Tusa tells investors in a research note titled "'Breaking The Buck': How $1 Becomes $0.50 and Why the Great Reset Is Not Quite Reset." The analyst believes a "plausible case" of sustainable free cash flow can be made in the 50c range, or just above the standing dividend. His new price target of $11 reflects 50c in sustainable free cash flow as the base case.

JPMorgan's Tusa confident in $11 GE target amid Buffett speculation
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa points out that Warren Buffett's past involvement in General Electric has ended up being wrong from a "stock and valuation perspective." Following this week's speculation of a potential Buffett stake, Tusa expresses greater conviction in his Underweight rating on GE with an $11 price target. The analyst wonders why, if things aren't so bad, GE would the company's need Berkshire's capital or validation. Buffett or not, numbers matter, Tusa writes in a research note. The stock in early trading is down 6c to $13.62.
