Outperform
Southwest likely to have strong growth through FY19, says Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin lowered his Q1 earnings per share estimate for Southwest Airlines to 74c from 83c following yesterday's guidance update. The analyst, however, maintains his fiscal 2018 estimate of $5.00 and fiscal 2019 estimate of $6.50. As the industry's pricing leader, Southwest is likely to have strong earnings growth through fiscal 2019 despite a competitive environment, Derchin tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $75 price target. Southwest closed yesterday down 5%, or $2.91, to $57.78.

Buy
Southwest price target lowered to $70 from $75 at UBS
After meeting with management, UBS analyst Darryl Genovesi attributes Southwest Airlines' Q1 RASM miss to a bigger hit from back-of-the-clock flying as it seeks to maintain share, along with a misread of Spring Break demand. The company noted that prospective fleet growth, along with changes to its scheduling system/processes, will help it to avoid such supply-demand mismatches in the future, Genovesi tells investors in a research note. He lowered his price target for the Southwest shares to $70 from $75 and keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Buy
Southwest upgraded to Buy on valuation at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Daniel McKenzie upgraded Southwest (LUV) to Buy from Neutral saying shares are oversold and maintained a $70 price target. The analyst said Southwest's Q1 revenue was disappointing and Q2 Street estimates have come down, but he sees very little risk to full year consensus estimates given network adjustments, a new revenue management system, and a solid seasonal backdrop heading into summer. McKenzie said shares look attractive following yesterday's selloff, combined with superior profitability and more compelling capital returns.
