Whirlpool price target lowered to $165 from $190 at BofA/Merrill

BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle lowered his price target for Whirlpool to $165 from $190 saying that lower growth and late cycle positioning justifies a lower multiple. The analyst reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares.

Sell
Whirlpool downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Samuel Eisner downgraded Whirlpool to Sell and cut his price target for the shares to $135 from $164. The analyst sees a price/cost imbalance with medium term competition risk. Eisner believes Whirlpool "operates in one of the weakest industries for pricing power" and sees risk to the company's guidance. Whirlpool's cyclical positioning could further exacerbate the competitive environment while raw material inflation puts estimates at risk, Eisner tells investors in a research note.

Sector Perform
Whirlpool price target raised to $200 from $184 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Michael Eisen raised his price target on Whirlpool to $200 and kept his Sector Perform rating after inline Q4 earnings and below-consensus FY18 outlook. Eisen says the unexpected mix benefit in Q4 adds to the confidence of higher like-for-like pricing this year, but also notes soft shipments across the regions and signs of decelerating industry growth. The analyst contends there is still some potential upside to guidance, since it does not include FX tailwinds, the positive impact of U.S. tax reform on consumer demand, and the recently approved tariffs on large residential washer imports.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Karen Holthouse removed Starbucks (SBUX) from the Conviction Buy List citing another reduction in estimates and risks to back-half weighted guidance. 2. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Horvers saying the stock has run up 16% since the House passed the tax bill in November, and recent estimate revisions suggest the Street is assuming 50% flow through of tax savings. 3. Whirlpool (WHR) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Kenneth Zener citing expectations the stock's past trading range will hold. 4. Newell Brands (NWL) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Nik Modi saying the forward estimates no longer appear trustworthy after the company's third downward revision in guidance in less than six months. 5. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Market Perform on valuation at Raymond James with analyst Michael Turits citing strong relative shares performance.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Zillow (Z, ZG) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Brad Erickson saying the risk/reward is "too good to pass up" with the stock down 6% since July. 2. Travelers (TRV) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Gilead (GILD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Michael Yee saying Gilead "has had it tough since 2015," but he worst is "generally moving behind them." 4. Whirlpool (WHR) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Sam Darkatsh saying that while EMEA margins were depressed and raw material inflation has expanded further, the next few quarters will be supportive on the prospects of "price hike stickiness, improved washer margins, and conservative guidance". 5. Jack in the Box (JACK) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying that he expects stabilization in same-store sales growth within management's current 1%-2% guidance range given easier year-over-year comparisons starting in the second quarter. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
