Delta, GM look cheap, with growth potential, Barron's says

While a solid start to earnings season helped push share prices higher earlier this week, some remain deeply discounted, Jack Hough writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Despite Delta Air Lines' (DAL) pessimistic valuation, consolidation has left only a handful of key players and the company faces less competition in key markets than some of its peers, the report adds. Additionally, Goodyear Tire (GT), General Motors (GM) and Lincoln National (LNC) also made the valuation cutoff, Hough says. Reference Link

JPMorgan sees Airlines raising Q1 outlooks at next week's conference
JPMorgan analyst James Baker believes several Airlines will raise their Q1 guidance at his firm's Aviation, Transportation and Industrials Conference next week. He expects near-term consensus estimates to move higher for the airlines coming out of the presentations, particularly for United Continental (UAL). The analyst recommends increasing exposure to the sector ahead of the conference. He raised his estimates for United the most, taking his Q1 earnings per share forecast up to 32c from 3c. Other names in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU) and Southwest (LUV).

Delta Air Lines price target raised to $100 from $90 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi raised his price target for Delta Air Lines to $100 from $90 on valuation. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on the shares given Delta's combination of peer-leading operating margins, an investment grade balance sheet, structural advantages related to the location of its hubs and greater labor flexibility.

Delta Q1 report shows initiatives producing 'impressive' results, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Jack Atkins said that Delta's Q1 report demonstrates that the company's segmentation, co-branding initiatives, and efforts to improve international performance are producing "impressive" results. The analyst, who thinks Delta is undervalued given the company's strong revenue, earnings and cash flow momentum, reiterates his Overweight rating and $71 price target on the airline's shares.

Delta Air Lines deserves premium multiple, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani noted that Delta currently trades at an average multiple versus peers of about 8x 2019 consensus EPS estimates. However, given his belief that Delta deserves a greater premium to account for a host of above average metrics and his view of the potential for a moderately higher multiple being assigned to the U.S. Airlines group, Lalwani raised his price target on Delta to $72 from $66. He maintains an Overweight rating on the stock.

GM upgraded to Overweight on infrastructure bill potential at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas upgraded General Motors (GM) to Overweight from Equal Weight, as he sees room for positive earnings revisions for GM, Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) as investors better understand the impact on U.S. pick-up truck sales from a potential passage of a U.S. infrastructure bill. The firm's economics team estimates a bull case of as much as $2.4T in U.S. infrastructure spending over a 10-year period, which primarily would affect automakers through the sale of highly-profitable pickup trucks, said Jonas, who noted that greater infrastructure spending typically does coincide with increased pickup sales. Jonas raised his price target on GM shares to $48 from $45 and increased his price target on Fiat Chrysler to EUR23 from EUR22 per share.

Morgan Stanley, bullish on trucks, names American Axle top pick in U.S. Autos
After Morgan Stanley published a report on the potential beneficiaries from infrastructure spending, analyst Armintas Sinkevicius called American Axle (AXL) the supplier with the greatest direct exposure to pick-up trucks and believes it should receive an outsized benefit from any infrastructure spending increase. He named American Axle his top pick in the U.S. Autos & Shared Mobility sector, stating that after the first quarter he expects volumes to improve at General Motors (GM), launch costs to fade and for synergies to provide margin expansion and free cash flow generation. As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas upgraded General Motors to Overweight from Equal Weight this morning, also citing the potential benefits of increased U.S. infrastructure spending.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Motors (GM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying he sees room for positive earnings revisions for GM, Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) as investors better understand the impact on U.S. pick-up truck sales from a potential passage of a U.S. infrastructure bill. 2. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Carrier saying he views TD Ameritrade's near-term outlook as attractive given healthy new net asset growth, higher interest rates, and strong DARTs. 3. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Peter Winter saying he sees several levers that should drive above average earnings per share growth over the next two years, including margin expansion, potential resumption of loan growth, and above average capital returns. 4. Agilent (A) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Patrick Donnelly saying he sees an attractive fundamental backdrop across Tools. 5. Discover (DFS) and Ally Financial (ALLY) were upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Stephens. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

January to be busy for Autos and Shared Mobility names, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas previewed the January calendar for the Autos and Shared Mobility sector, noting that the Vegas CES takes place in the second week and the Detroit Auto Show occurs in the third week of next month. Judging from last year's shows and press releases in recent weeks, he expects "the vast majority" of prepared presentations will focus on autonomous driving, electric propulsion and new business models as companies seek to encourage recognition and valuation of "Auto 2.0 efforts" in the multiples of their stocks, he tells investors. Automakers covered by the firm include Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Tesla (TSLA), General Motors (GM), Ferrari (RACE) and Ford (F). Auto suppliers covered include Magna (MGA), Goodyear Tire (GT), Adient (ADNT), Delphi Technologies (DLPH), Visteon (VC), BorgWarner (BWA), Aptiv (APTV) and Tenneco (TEN).

Deem sees 5-10% downside to consensus expectations driven by weaker than expected volume and price/mix and notes valuation is at a multi-year high and reflects "inflated optimism."

Visteon double downgraded on low chance of strategic action at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley double downgraded Visteon (VC) to Underweight from Overweight as coverage of the stock was transferred to analyst Armintas Sinkevicius. The auto industry is going through an "unprecedented period of cyclical and secular change" and investors are currently skewed negative on U.S. autos and shared mobility stocks, the analyst said. He sees risk to the multiple for the "Auto 2.0" suppliers as adoption of autonomous vehicles may be pushed out. The analyst has a $110 price target on Visteon, citing his view that strategic action is unlikely in the near term. To support this view, he points to a "consistent pattern of insider selling" and low insider ownership. Among "Auto 2.0" stocks, Sinkevicius recommends Adient (ADNT) and Goodyear Tire (GT), on which he has Overweight ratings.

JPMorgan calls Lincoln, Prudential top picks in Life Insurance
JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar calls Lincoln National (LNC) and Prudential Financial (PRU) his top picks in Life Insurance. The analyst maintains a neutral stance on the sector into the Q1 reporting season but is less cautious than previously. He expects pricing in most product lines to be rational and says the recent rise in interest rates is a "notable positive." Bhullar keeps Overweight ratings on Lincoln and Prudential with price targets of $87 and $126, respectively. The analyst remains negative on Underweight-rated Brighthouse Financial (BHF) and lowered his price target for the shares to $57 from $61.
